this was a good week


This was a wonderful week.  Here are some reasons why:

•  Traveling to Austin to speak at the Texas Conference for Women (and meeting some amazing women in the process), getting to witness new love, and receiving a lovely short story that Alex wrote for me -- one that I can't wait to photograph, and then share our collaboration with you.  More to come.

•  A solar-powered bike path, inspired by Van Gogh's "Starry Night."  This makes me so happy.

•  I'm a huge dog lover, but many years ago I was nipped in the hand by a chihuahua, causing me to regard the breed with a healthy dose of distaste ever since.  Until, that is, my friend Alice and her family brought Hazel home.  Because goodness, are you seeing little Hazel?   Hazel is a lady.

•  I love Lisa's altered postcards.  We have some family travel coming up, and I might be tempted to buy a few postcards just to alter them and mail them to someone.

•  Every day, for the month of October, this artist dropped one letter from movie titles changing their meaning, and illustrated what that movie might be about.  I so love clever.

•  I've fallen behind on my life list goal to taste 50 different rums, but I think I've found the next one I want to try.  Rum infused with chocolate?  Yes, please.

•  Finally, the song of the day:  this cover of Somebody That I Used To Know by Walk Off the Earth.  It's a great cover, and not just because it involves 5 people playing a single guitar at the same time.

Have a great weekend, friends.  See you next week.
