I actually think flowers on the wane are more interesting. Maybe I relate to them as I'm getting further away from my youth every day, deluding myself that maybe my looks, like one of a fading flower are just as lovely as when I was a dewy-faced 20-year-old because they are more interesting. Yeah, that's it. . . . → Read More: Is this a columbine or a bleeding heart……
Unfortunately their appetites are not affected, and left to their own devices they will strip my cupboards bare in a few hours. Having kids like mine is like living with four termites ranging from 40-110 pounds. I'm kind of wondering what ailments I can introduce into our household that will keep them from eating my entire paycheck. Do you have any suggestions? . . . → Read More: Outsmarting Termites
I know photographs of flowers are, um, common, to say the least. But one could argue everything beautiful is common. And isn't that the most beautiful part, that lovely things are everywhere? Flowers are common and rare at the same time because even though every week or so the riot of flowers changes types, you only see crocuses or daffodils or tulips or apple tree blossoms or irises or sunflowers at certain times of the year. So while I can still go outside right now and with a little looking find an entire roadside full of irises, they are fleeting. Abundant and fleeting.

I attended the Casual Blogger Conference this weekend. I went to high school with its cofounder, Elisa, also known as Motherboard. (Elisa, did you ever watch Cyberchase?) I got to talk to her over the two days, and she was so cute and excited when I told her I was dating Ryan. "He is the nicest man!" she gushed. I agreed, of course. . . . → Read More: Casual Blogger Conference 2010

If later you see a photo of me on fire in the snow with a Viking helmet and a dress made out of library card catalogs, now you'll know I agreed to it. . . . → Read More: Oh, also…
This is Ryan. He's a photographer so he's used to being behind the camera, but not in front of it. He's getting better at letting me take his picture, see? I think I'm getting better at letting go of my intimidated inhibitions and taking his picture too. It's all working out nicely.

A few weeks ago I met my friend Steve and his gorgeous children with luminous milky skin and red hair for photos. They were so, so, so fun and so beautiful and we had a blast. I don't believe in a lot of post-processing nonsense, so these are almost straight-out-of-the-camera. Enjoy!
