Carpe Noctem

I realized this evening that I stay up much later than I used to. I wanted to work on this image tonight because I just love the trees. The next thing I knew it was after midnight again! If you ask me, I think all of the lines from the leafless branches seem to make their own… Read More

Goodbye Summer!

And all at once, summer collapsed into fall. Oscar Wilde This may be a little premature—there are still leaves on the trees—but this year I’m so happy to see summer go that I really don’t care. Yahoo! It’s been a very, very hot summer. With no A/C in our house, and one that’s been out… Read More

Not quite the photo ops I had anticipated, but hanging out with her was the real treat, so I’m not complaining!Ā I was asked to be on a panel Tuesday night—at a recovery center—and I’m really looking forward to that. If it wasn’t for theĀ commitment, I would… Read More
