That tail. Those eyes. That wiggle! It was our second day in Rome. We’d slept roughly the night before, but forced ourselves to get some sunlight and exercise (the cornerstone of our Anti-Jet-Lag Initiative). Cappuccinos consumed, we put on our comfy shoes, tightened the belts on our fanny packs, and headed out for adventure. WeContinue reading “Welcoming Committee (Rome, Italy)”
One of my favorite moments of last year’s Christmas Eve wrapping frenzy. My younger kitty was convinced that every gift was for her. Oh, and that the gifts were actually the packaging. From that perspective, I suppose she was right. Shot on Google Pixel 3, black and white filter.

But you’re in your house, on your couch, and there’s only so many shots of the upright pianoContinue reading “Practicing Photography: A Cat’s Worst Nightmare”
She knows a good gig when she sees one — this furry ball of gorgeous has actually shown up more than once in my reading of other people’s blogs about journeys to Positano. An absolute camera-mugging, attention-crazed, ultra-self-confident specimen, milking her chance to steal the attention of tourist lenses far and wide. Everyone is Mr.Continue reading “Blessings from Bast – Positano, Italy”
Doing something a little different for today’s memoires, inspired by one of my favorite stories, Rashomon. I hope to make a habit of it. The idea is to occasionally solicit the thoughts and opinions of others who have tread the same path as me, but (inevitably) they bring a different perspective. End result: you getContinue reading “Rashomon Series: Jewel Dunn’s River Resort, Jamaica”
