May 2018: Sense When


On this trip to Texas, I was thinking about the passage of time, the cycle of life & how all things have meaning in our brains, albeit distinctly.  Like how a cold or itchy mosquito bites, 100 degree weather or a job problem is experienced so differently to the people suffering from it.  Or how someone looking at an artwork doesn't often see the same thing that the artist saw/felt or even intended.  And how does an 85 year-old alligator feel & experience living?  Or a butterfly that is only alive a few days?  What about a talkative cat that depends so mightily on humans?  Even plants that maybe don't have a brain, but certainly a life-cycle & some ability to live & die?  And then there's the infinite number of inanimate things that convince me they have something like a soul, too.

How wonderful it is to experience all the things...the great, the bad & even the ugly!  

Thanks Jess & Patrick for giving me so many moments of reflection, wonderful dishes + not-too-salty micheladas, shopping opportunities, new animal surprises, car rides under the big sky & much to look at, listen to, feel, remember.

March 2018: Cashmere & Cotton Candy


Although the airplane was four hours late due to fog at the Charles M. Schultz Sonoma County Airport, this belated 39th birthday weekend was sunny, bright, pleasing, emotive, filling & fantastically comfortable.  Music to all our ears!

December 2017: Low & Dry


This trip to Manzanita, OR was spectacular being that it was sunny (in the 50's), dry, dry, dry & little to no wind.
