sam-eating plant

This plant has captured me alive!

It happened last weekend 
at the 50%-off sale at the nursery.
She's a big fuzzy begonia
3 and-a-half feet across
with screwy leaves the size of dinner plates.

For now, she's living like a big ape
 in the tree out back.

lunar odalisque

ineffably sweet

is it just me?

I see a formal cow portrait.  Do you?


Never leave home without a camera.

You never know when you'll need proof.

a way of seeing

Here's a gift for all of my blogging buds.
Take a quiet moment and watch this video.
Click on its title.
It'll do you good.

Jim McVicker leads a charmed life.
I say that without envy,
 just a true appreciation for a life so beautifully shared.

Okay, but you'd have to be seriously nuts 
not to be just a little envious.

water on the brain

Water defines where you are.
Will there be enough?
Is there too much? 

These leaked into my sketchbook.

I have no idea what they mean,
but they made a nice page.

The alleys are full of miraculous treasures.
Early one morning, the dog noticed
this unusual doorway

and paused for a moment to refract.
