I’ve been hit hard this flu season…three weeks at Christmas and three more weeks in Jan/Feb. Thank goodness for quilts (this one made by my friend Sharon) and books… …and if you haven’t read Colin Meloy’s YA adventure “Wildwood,” consider it…the main locale is Portland and it is a VERY fun read…here are the maps […]
I looked back over all the posts I’ve made about Christmas, and discovered to my amazement that I’ve been writing this blog for 10 Years! One of my favorite Christmas posts was the Christmas carwash…the car wash being a place that always makes me happy (i know, I know, but…) so the other day after […]
No kidding, the car wash is always a mood elevator and ESPECIALLY since they changed to yellow scrubby stuff and blue soap…

But here’s the coolest thing I did today…a long lunch and a warm and lovely conversation with my friend Nadia…in from Tunisia. She writes a […]
The thing I really like about the car wash is that you will never see the same image twice…it will always be slightly different. Each trip through is like a short performance…you enter, you wait and then suddenly you are inside a dynamic set of images…fantastic. and then when you come out…your car is clean. […]
There’s important stuff to write about here…the Rick Bartow show, the Louis Bunce research, more…but I’m having photo troubles, and all I can get my head around today is the car wash…I love the car wash… it’s calming in there… and Sidney at lunch…now that was FUN!
