Timing is everything

There's another hurricane approaching - Michael; from the south this time. It appears that he may finally move Summer off her ass and on to a different hemisphere. She has far overstayed her welcome. But then, 'normal' is out the window with what we're doing to the planet, isn't it?

 These leaves that get caught in webs - quite a feat, no? They should get an award for... something. A photo will have to do for now.

"Ag, it's life, isn't it, Faye? We have to learn to adjust very quickly. 
We hold on to those thoughts, and we find ourselves unable to let go of 
the undeniable fact; that everything has changed ... and we have to 
change with it; make new memories."

A friend sent these words to me in 2013. I can't remember what I said that prompted this reply but they meant enough at the time that I saved them in a file.

And now, I am mourning his passing and his words from the past are comforting.

Out of Practice

I've always kept my camera next to my desk, within easy reach. But since putting my house on the market and needing to a) keep things tidy and b) keep valuables out of sight, the notion to take a photo has been completely out of my thought process. Cleaning out closets and bookshelves has been my primary focus lately and likely for the foreseeable future. Oh the 'stuff' we collect. I must have a three foot tall stack of art and watercolor magazines alone. The never-ending search for inspiration eventually comes home to roost - in the recycle bin.

'Dismayed' may be too strong a word. I had to push myself to make this shot. The rose was perfect but what to do about a background? The bloom is so small that it would be lost with a busy b/g. Find a white board and prop it up. I almost shrugged it off.

Once upon a time, my guest bedroom was set up as a studio; lights, tables, backgrounds. It was always ready for a still life (or feline) shot. The, I took it all down and packed it all away. 

Anyway, it was not a huge effort to set up the shot... but the spirit was lacking.

Time Flies

It's been so long, I was determined to post something (ANYTHING) today.

It feels like summer is flying by and the days are hot and humid. Sofia has been diagnosed with an overactive thyroid and so we've been busy treating  that. She has lost a lot of weight and at first the medicine caused vomiting - counterproductive to getting her weight back. Anyway, she's eating now and not throwing up, so as long as I can get the pills into her, she should be on the mend.

Why a photo of Beau instead? You take what you can get with cats. :)

I'm really missing my Mom this weekend. I miss her every day but even more so on Mother's Day.
