Fuji Redux

Fuji is my camera once again.  I owned two Fuji DSLRs before switching to Nikon.  I don't think anyone does color better than Fuji.

Ready, Aim...

Trying to devise a storage solution for cameras. There was one on my desk, one on top of the printer, and one on top of the rolltop desk (right behind me). I don't want to put them away... in camera bags... out of sight. The number of things that I keep within arms reach might suggest an "out of sight, out of mind" mentality. Am I afraid that if the effort to retrieve a camera is more than two steps I will never take a photo? 

I thought about hanging them in the closet; but Sofia might think they are for her amusement. For the time being, they are all gathered on the top shelf of the rolltop desk. Except for the one in my purse. And there's a new one on the way... a camera, not a purse. I'm working towards becoming purseless, but that's a story for another day.

Reservation Reservations

Thanks to a FB friend, I discovered this week that I can indeed travel legally to Cuba. I have wanted to go there for a long time but never thought I would be able to make the trip. There are restrictions for Americans of course, but I have decided to go while I can.

I have gone back and forth. Go? No go? Asking the universe to give me a sign. (there were several). I was all "YES" mid-week, then yesterday I felt very old and alone and I was leaning towards "NO". Nothing about the trip itself concerns me; it's my stamina. Can I keep up with my knee issues?Everything feels pretty good now, but I never know about tomorrow. But no one has any guarantees for tomorrow. 

I have become so cautious in my old (ha ha) age. I was much more impetuous when I was younger. I suppose we all were. Then when things go awry or we find that not everything we try is successful, we begin to take a moment before jumping into the deep end.

So there it is. Cuba, late November. I will be there on December 1.
