Just a quick FYI, while on the road, I’m having difficulty moderating your comments. I DO love hearing from you! I’ll moderate when I get my hands on a “real” computer:)

… we stumbled upon a street market. It was pretty amazing; about five blocks of 6th avenue had been blocked off and vendors from all over came to sell their wares. The visual delights of the city never cease to amaze me! I wished I had my “nice” camera, but this phone did the job. […]

It’s the little things that I’m enjoying… The corner pizzeria, the noise of the trains, and silly little aps for my phone! I hope you too are finding things to amuse you!

… I have three thoughts: 1) Gosh there are a lot of people, 2) They don’t seem to be doing much of anything, and 3) This really is the city that never sleeps!

Thank you all “Explorer” users there for giving me the head’s up on the way this blog looks.  I’m pretty sure I’ve adjusted things around correctly and this page should look presentable to all sorts of browsers. Again, you would tell me wouldn’t you? I wanted to share with you an art acquisition I made […]

I’ve been away… finishing up work on my father’s house and meeting with the various people who are helping me through this process.  It was strange this time; my father’s house felt nothing like him.  I didn’t know what to think.  On one hand I was happy to see the new buyers won’t be moving […]

It doesn’t matter how old you are, a day at the Aquarium is always well spent.  Here on Maui, we have a fabulous aquarium – The Maui Ocean Center is full of visual delights as well as learning opportunities for all.  If I sound like a commercial, forgive me, it’s just that over the years […]

Now just how did this happen?  My “baby” is turning double-digits today!  Seems like yesterday we were all hovering around her watching her new “trick” as she flipped from her belly to her back, or seeing the joy on her face as she discovered “finger-food”… now she is ten.. boo hoo!  Despite my sadness, I’m […]

{Bokeh, my Thursday routine, where I continue to explore the aesthetic quality of the blur.  Soft and ethereal, I’m interested less about the subject matter and more about the feeling these photos elicit.  Come visit my flickr group, Bokeh Beauty, and feel free to share your own take on this delightful way to shoot!} Sunlight […]

When you are the village fiber artist, word gets around that you like fabric.  It happens all the time, I’m often the one thought of when someone has a stash of fabric to unload.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the way this works, indeed I do, sometimes it’s stuff I can use, sometimes not, […]

I’ve been invited to join an online quilting bee called the Mid Mod Quilt Bee.  It’s a different kind of quilting bee, instead of gathering at a someone’s house, we gather virtually… online, and instead of everybody participating in the quilting of a quilt, we are all piecing blocks which are then put together and […]

Weekend View… a snapshot or glimpse in time of something from this week worth remembering. This time its fresh eggs from a neighbor’s coop.  It’s a simple thing really, walking up the street and handing a lady and empty carton and a few dollar bills, but in return I’m rewarded with not only a beautiful […]
