Bah, humbug! When shopping becomes a chore

Written by on December 22nd, 2016

It’s not that I don’t like the Christmas season, I’d rather focus on the Christmas reason, you know, the why we do all of this. I’ve had the Christmases that¬†were¬†perfect, with everyone unwrapping all that they asked for, the cooked-to-perfection meal for twenty, and the decorations that could make the¬†spread in “Home and Gardens.” All [click title to read more ;)]

I‚Äôm a student of human behavior, especially when it‚Äôs a little peculiar. The people that intrigue me the most are those that are single-minded. I’m not talking about people who prefer to stay single. Nor, am I talking about people who have narrow views. I’m talking about a person that likes one thing so much, [click title to read more ;)]

So, What Have We Lost?

Written by on August 28th, 2014

While perusing new book titles on Amazon¬†I saw one that caught my attention. What could a book titled “The End of Absence” be about? I wondered.

Hey now! It’s not as bad as it sounds. Great quote about photographers

Written by on July 7th, 2014
"Photographers are violent people. First they frame you, then they shoot you, then they hang you on the wall."

I love this quote.¬† I wish I knew the author so I could compliment them on their wittiness. Truth be told, when you’re in the hands of a true professional, a photographer is anything but violent.¬† If anything, a photographer, as well as the photo session, should be FUN, EXCITING, MEMORABLE … and above all [click title to read more ;)]
