It Don’t Come Easy

If I just gave you an earworm, I apologize and you’re welcome – Ringo Starr’s “It Don’t Come Easy” is a good song. And although it’s grammatically incorrect, the title is one hundred percent dead-on accurate in its spirit. If you’re talking about art of any kind, it...

Switching Gears

Sometimes inspiration strikes and hits you so hard, you have no choice but to sit up and pay attention. Well, inspiration struck. I’m pretty sure I have an “inspiration-shaped” shoe print on my forehead. I’ve been toying with doing a somewhat silly series for a while...

TBRs and Other Mysterious Things

I’ll keep this one short and sweet. It’s gloomy and wet here, really feeling like fall and winter in light and atmosphere. I don’t think I’m ready for this seasonal shift, but at the same time, I kind of welcome the change. Winters here so far haven’t been bad, and...

Straight in a Roundabout Way

Remember that “suspicious finding” on the CT report I mentioned that we were chasing a couple of weeks ago? The one we thought was resolved? Well… As it turns out, that situation isn’t as resolved as one might hope. A couple of days ago, I had a blood pressure spike....
