Hello, old friend

img_9296It’s been a long time since I last spent much time with you, my friend. I’m afraid I’ve been uninspired. The events (or in some cases the anticipation of events that never happened) have robbed me of any motivation to do more; be more.

But I’m going to try.  The camera’s out of the bag. I’m not expecting to suddenly find inspiration around the next corner, but I’m definitely not going to just stumble over it.

As a start, here are a couple of shots from the last time I tried to do anything creative with my trusty camera. It’s a shot of our dear friend and luthier extraordinaire, Thom Schiff, in the back corner of his workshop. I don’t think he always works in the dark, but he does tend to do his best work in the late night hours.

Hopefully it won’t be another year before you hear from me again.

Sweet Temptations

Saying “no” to these sweet temptations is not easy at our local donut shops. Picking out a dozen to bring in to work is hard enough but then picking just one to indulge yourself with is almost impossible. Almost.

Pumpkin Spice Hell?

Pumpkin spice This might look like someone’s idea of heaven (probably all those who can’t wait to order their first PSL at Starbucks each fall), but to me, this is simply overkill. All these variations detract from the simple pleasure of a slice of pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving or even an occasional slice of pumpkin roll.
