Town Neck…


I’ll keep this brief. I see things (so very many things) that spark me. I take photographs, then I like to share them with you.

What dreadful hot weather we have! It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance. –Jane Austen

Flea Market Treasures…

I saw the band, WAR with my brother-in-law, Jim last night at Payomet in Truro, Mass. Why Can’t We Be Friends was crowd pleaser. After the show we chased the full moon back to Sandwich.

July 5th, 2022…


This morning on Town Neck Beach…missed connections, a lost wallet, a dropped s’more, forgotten beach toys, and still smoldering bonfires. I briefly helped a guy search for his wallet (it was found). He was so grateful that in return he offered to help me clean up the beach.

I texted the number I blurred out on this note. I didn’t want anyone waiting for a call or text all summer. I hope they have another way to connect with the person they met on Town Neck Beach last night.

4th of July 2022: Parades, friends, family, games, swimming, cocktails, cook-outs., sunsets, fireworks…and another (all too common) mass shooting in America by a young man with a legally purchased, high-powered rifle—a weapon of war.

“When nearly 3,000 people died on 9/11, it was enough to create massive change in our society. Over ten times as many people die from guns each year. Where is the social change?”

Yesterday I placed Google’s ART MOVEMENTS as the first item on my browser (link below). G going to this site before the news might be better for my soul. As I hack my art education, I’m going to create or curate work(s) in the style & order the movements appear on the site. Continue reading

Oh, the places we go …


Some mornings I feel settled, calmly visiting with Jeff over coffee, reading what I choose, editing photos, and having a bit of discipline not to jump from thought to thought.

Today, however, was definitely not one of those days, maybe the snow threw me off, yesterday was SPRING for goodness sake.

I looked at my browser history for some insight. I could somewhat follow my own tracks. However, if I disappeared today even the most intuitive detective would not know where to begin to understand my bread crumbs…sourdough, whole wheat, cranberry walnut, cheddar jalapeno, then a lone Dorito perhaps?

OOhhhh, I want a cheddar jalapeno bagel now, I can finish this later…or maybe not at all.

Try being a detective and see if you can decipher your own state of mind. I didn’t solve anything. However, I am stepping away from the screen for a while and doing something else.

Trust your intuition
It’s just like going fishin’
You cast your line and
Hope you get a bite
