change the direction of the sun.

i moved into an apartment last May. i have lived in houses most of my life. Most houses have windows on all sides of the house, never really thought about that before…when i lived in my last house, i followed the sunlight, all day, like a cat. i tried to find an apartment that faced…

In honor of love lost

My daughter had a wonderful friend, he lived with his mother & grandmother in Bermuda. He called me mom & Sophie called Judah’s mother, mom. both of us moms knew how important their relationship was. i was in the kitchen, one night, trying to make a snack…Sophie walks into the kitchen & i was aware…

flowers do NOT outshine Quicksilver

There are two photographs that show me shooting the flowers, some how Quicksilver knew what held my attention. since it wasn’t him, he decided to change my photographs. (the two photos of me were taken with my iphone by my 12 year old son.)

cat lovers, i am in need of answers

i wish i had this t-shirt…

and the cat too. if this was my t-shirt. i would put in an airtight bag, in a safety deposit box, not to be opened til my great grandchildren were grown. Because he is the stuff of legends.

geez, backlit winter coat Quicksilver

Quicksilver is a stray, that come to us & decided to stay. I finally convinced him to sleep in the garage when its pouring bucks or gets too cold. I am so grateful that he lets me keep him dry & warm. However-i had never seen his winter coat like this, until this backlit photo…
