Video Work

I’ve enjoyed playing with video as I’ve helped my husband’s band as they’ve gotten going.  I feel like a collector of media, and finding ways to make pieces go together eventually is on my “to do” list.  Anyway, I’ve got lots of stuff to mess around with, but here are a few videos I’ve done…

Convalescence 

I’m writing from the same spot on the couch on which I’ve been sitting for a month. The spring started great, with a trip to Mexico and Australia (both of which I have not written about yet), but the weekend I returned from Melbourne I tripped over my dog, tried to catch myself, and broke…

Istanbul

Istanbul is so beautiful!  It is one of my favorite places that I’ve ever visited.  We stayed near Taksim Square, and the first thing I noticed that made me realize Istanbul is unlike anywhere I’ve ever been was that our taxi was inspected underneath with mirrors as we entered the hotel.  We then had to…

Reflection

I originally thought I’d start a travel blog.  But that has changed.  I am lucky to be able to travel for work, and I love to take photos.  So why not start a travel blog?  Why can’t I be one of those fantastic people who travel all around the world and seemingly have no responsibilities except posting…

Good Night, Sweet Daisy

I’m heartbroken.  We had to put Daisy, my sweet beagle, to sleep today.  She became suddenly sick on Monday, and at first, our vet thought it was antifreeze poisoning.  The signs were all there.  After two days of IV fluids, her kidneys were still functioning, which we took to be a hopeful sign.  I was…

Spring Fever

The weather, although not consistent, has been nice quite a bit lately.  That coupled with Daylight Savings happening tonight put me in such a good mood that I went outside to do the dreaded weeding of the flower beds after winter.  Most of the day it was around 65 degrees Fahrenheit, with sun and a…

Favorite Quotes

I wanted to write these down somewhere that I’d never lose them, so, Interwebz, I’m trusting you to keep these safe.  This is a working list – I’ll be updating as I read and remember. Trouble not thyself about the shadow of a great name, nor about the friendship of many, nor about the love…
