A simple self-portrait using the open front door as a bounce. Un-retouched. Just because I feel happy.

Marty was sleeping beside me the whole time, and I was sitting on the floor. You don’t need much for a photo – just light and something for the camera to sit on (in this case, a tripod).

Phone pic for reference. (Marty wasn’t super excited about the camera)

Wednesday (on a Thursday)

I love rhododendron season. It’s like beautiful, colourful, tissue paper flowers but for real.


Somehow it’s already the 13th of May. Time is slippery.

Last week felt like summer, all bright and warm, and today is back to the slight chill of spring with socks definitely necessary inside today.

I am overwhelmed, honestly. I believe I’ll find my way through (I usually do) but for now the worry and discomfort is… not fun.

All I can do is keep this picture in mind today when I’m worked up. A sleepy sunbeam nap and an utterly relaxed cat. <3
