Write a Book

"Write a book," they all keep saying. Well, here's your book. It's not for sale on Amazon. Sorry about that. Amazon requires a huge mark up for print-on-demand photography books like this. But it's for sale in hardcover and softcover. Visit the shop page to read more.  I'm also selling my photography through Zenfolio which is also […]

My Girl Juicy

Now this dog. This dog doesn't have a cruel bone in her body. During this year's rutting season, I stopped carrying treats due to yellow jacket population. Without treats, Juno turned to her innate Siberian resolve of doing whatever she damn well pleases. Her recall slipped to the point where she would only wait for […]

Brute Force Peace Keeper

This dog. This dog loves his mommy no matter what she does. Scott pulled a prank on my Lyme brain Sunday morning while wrapping presents. Since we desperately need some humor in this house, I laughed and scolded him while girlie-slapping his arm and nudging his wine-belly. Loki, being the police dog that he is, broke […]

Guisseppe and Luca

Giuseppe the Green, turned to me abruptly. He and his cousin Luca were busy snacking on the Mexican sage and I clearly annoyed them.

Jumping Jack Flash

You never forget your first photo shoot with a jumping spider. I saved Jumping Jack Flash, who's only about 4 mm and looks like a piece of lint to the naked eye, from a fatal encounter with the mighty monster Hoover. It’s not like I’m a super hero (but I won’t stop you from referring […]

Seeing Red

Between the holiday season and the political backlash, social media is ablaze with divergent sensation. Here's my contribution. When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead, feed your head! And that's your ear worm for the day! Good song to sing to yourself in these depressing times.

My Two Essential Ingredients in Lyme Disease Treatment

Thank dog and praise cheeses for these two. They've literally held me together the last few weeks as my health plummeted into Lyme disease hell. Surviving on 2-3 hours of sleep per night and all the other little goodies that come along with Neurological Lyme plus a brand-new infection has been peachy. This election season […]

Droplets of Disillusionment

Tears. Disillusionment. I want to run away. Hide my eyes. Cover my ears. But I won't. Instead I will continue to use my free voice against hatred, bigotry, racism, illiteracy, misogyny, sexism and vulgarity, all of which America voted into office. In the mean time, pot is now legal in CA. There's always that. My bubble […]

Purple Rain

"You'll miss the best things, if you keep your eyes shut. " ~ Dr. Seus Last Monday was IVIG day. Saturday I got gussied up and went to dinner. A rare event. I threw caution to the wind and had a glass of wine and gelato for dessert. The last hour of dinner, I felt like […]
