My Photo


  • a happy, ordinary, middle-aged, suburban woman who paints odd pictures, gardens in a straw hat, lives with the love of her life, is owned by one cat and the ghosts of several others, and walks a little funny 'cause she has a fake leg. She started this website because there's more to life than what we lose, and we need to let each other know what's possible, even if it's only a happy, ordinary life.

The sunflower grew amidst gravel ballast! I am used to seeing stingier plants down there. I know by our family home in Michigan I see exclusively horsetail (the primitive non seeded linear thing).

I copied your sunflower image. Hope you don't mind if I use it sometime in lecture. we use Power Point on a projector 4 days a week here.


Naw; go for it.

Now I'm sad about the bees. See, there were actually three of them when I walked up to take that picture, but one of them got scared off by my hulking, lurching presence.

Still, two are better than none, right? :)
