For the love of Cats!

I'm a cat lover. As are many artists. This is Luigi and Oliver (above), two of my three cats hastily acquired after the death of my other three cats. My other cats died of old age and the ailments that accompany it. But they all decided to go over the course of a year. Heartsick and missing my furry friends, I adopted a stray and then two feral kittens rather hastily. I heartily recommend adopting two kittens instead of one. These are brothers. They are so much fun and entertain each other and us constantly.

Take some time!

It's been a busy week. The weather has warmed up and I try to grab an hour here and there to sit under a palm tree, read, and listen to the ocean. So relaxing. I didn't always live near the ocean. I lived in a house with a simple backyard. There was a birdbath and a hammock. I used to lie in that hammock in the back yard, read, look up into the trees and listen to the birds. And there were times when there was no backyard. A blanket in the park did just fine. I don't make much time now for such luxuries but I am trying to change that. I hope that you do too.

It's cold outside!

A little chicory coffee and a few beignets from Cafe du Monde in New Orleans to warm you up. A favorite place of mine and a must for anyone visiting New Orleans.

Welcome to my blog!

I'm not much of a writer or a talker. Like many photographers I'm an observer and a collector. I collect moments, memories, stories, beauty, ugliness, the bizarre, and all kinds of other things that I find interesting. Today, I collected a moment. The sun was setting behind me, but the clouds in front of me caught the color of the sunset. And so I start 2010 with a pretty moment to share.
