eighty-year-old plumbing fixed

let’s see what I can do about this unsightly blemish



…and yes, that IS my power drill

no hole

that is all I can do today

giving MYSELF a GOLD STAR!!!


My parents gave me the gift of a classical music education.

I squandered it as a silly teen, trading violin for adolescence.

Tonight I am reminded of how fundamental it is to my make-up.

Though today I am grateful for my guitar,

 I am forever grateful for my classical training.

Ever awed by the genius of classical music.

…maybe I will try to paint a song…hmmm…

Thank you to a dear friend and a new friend for a lovely evening.


two lovers

an unexpected early morning message


attraction, love, beauty, trials overcome

oh japan!

…your fashion makes me happy.

thank you @TokyoFashion for giving me a regular fix.

I heART this photo.



at least one shamefully belated gift is now on its way

for a stylish classy lady, whose tastes I cannot afford, I painted a silk scarf

i hope she knows how much respect I have for her…

Merry Christmas Alicia!

you are Ukranian…so that buys me at least a few weeks less shame!

it’s in the mail, along with dad’s vintage Merlin




i love garbage night.

i LOVE throwing away junk.

last night i went through a box of random junk and pitched most of it.


even more excellent, the few items I did keep!!!

1. silly putty. enough said.

2. a MIXED tape. an ACTUAL  mixed tape of mine. i really didn’t think I had any of these around anymore.

what will I do with it you, ask?

not much, except smile. do an “in the old days” routine with the kiddies?

3. my Buddha Board

in case you are unfamiliar, it is a whimsical novelty that encourages you to paint with water alone

and contemplate the impermanence of the universe as you watch your masterpiece evaporate.

always a good lesson to refresh.

peace and love.


postscript!!! is this terrible or meaningful news? …the silly putty left a permanent mark on the buddha board. Hmm?


“Overexposed 2: Enough is Enough”


let’s hope 2012 brings me a new model.

i am bored with the one I’ve got.

the other two move too much.

fingers crossed.

purposely vague
