comfort zone

I definitely feel more comfortable behind the camera than in 
front of it.

Remembering the 80s

mixed media on paper - first in the series of Remembering the 80s
When this movie came out, I just had to have these boots. Baker's Shoes had them - they were $149.00 - a lot of money in the 80s especially since my parents never simply "gave" me money. Every penny had to be earned - mowing the lawn, washing their cars, painting the house etc. I had these on layaway for the two months it took me to pay for them. About one month after I had them - Baker's put them on sale for $9.00. Madonna's had rhinestones I'm sure for the movie. The ones being sold were merely silver sequins. They were not comfortable. I had them well into the 90's until one of my cats threw up on them. There was no cleaning cat vomit off of fishnets and sequins.... I recently saw a pair on Ebay for $1,000. A priceless memory.

artistic license...

I saw my first ever nighthawks a week or two ago while walking the dogs
early evening with my friend, Ann ---we watched a flock of them (at the time we didn't know what they were) swooping and churning above us in the dusky light - obviously catching bugs. The markings under their wings were so distinctive it only took a "real" birder seconds to tell me what they were when I described them.  We feel so lucky to have seen them! The same week, the painting Nighthawks by Edward Hopper came up in my reading - what an odd coincidence.
