Why is it all blurry? I will not usually repost a photo, but I think that this one deserves to be reposted because there is a story with it. Most of you who blog and share your work already know this – Any time that you share your work, there is a chance that someone will not like it, or perhaps they will not understand it. Here’s what happened to me the other day: As I was cruising through the…

Toes up and having fun! I’m having a great time going back through my photographs and doing lots and lots of clean up. I’ve expended a great number of hours doing it and probably have as many more to go. I was thinking while cleaning up that I’m a lot more laid back in my photography now. Previously, if I had gaps in the dates that I took photos, or even posted to the blog, I’d wonder why. I’d wonder…

It all started on Tuesday, October 25th. ¬†One of the days of the week that I attend Tai Chi is on Tuesdays. On this particular Tuesday we were doing stance training.

Yesterday, when I went to pick Hobbs up from boarding, I was waiting at the counter for the young lady to bring him to the front. When she arrived, she had his medicines, his bedding, and of course, Mr. Hobbs. However, she held a broken vial of insulin in her hand. She apologized profusely saying that she had dropped the vial when she removed it from the refrigerator. I told her that it was no problem, but that it would…

A scene from the beach – Monterrey, CA It’s been about 5 years since I set foot in California, or as it is affectionately called: The Land of Fruits and Nuts. The last time that I was there it was dual purpose. To be on vacation and to meet Monterrey John, a fellow blogger who is now deceased. I have fond memories of that trip. On July 18th, I head west again; this time much further south, Las Angeles –…
