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 Goldfish

Thank you for posting leaf pictures! I've had a dose cabin fever these last few days when the weather has been foul, and these have cheered me up no end. :-)

kathy a.

no, the leaves are like that! we just don't really get fall leaves here, so it is hard to say much.


Goldfish: I'm so happy you saw them! I was partly thinking of you when I posted them, especially the first one. :)

Kathy: Thank you for validating my vision. Not everyone recognizes the threat. ;)

Actually, if you want to see fall leaves in Northern California -- though it might be a tad late now -- go visit Fall Creek in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Besides lime kilns, I think it used to be both a quarry and a timber site, but regardless, the guy who owned it missed New England and planted it over afterward with trees that would produce autumn color. It's a lovely place to walk, one of my favorites in the area.
