Orange Hospitality

How lucky I am to have friends who offer me hospitality. The warmth of a shared meal extends its glow over the whole day. Two Years Ago: At The Beach Despite the overwhelming importance of the water to Key West… [read more]

Lissitzky Light

Things are a lot sunnier in the recent pictures than they have been in actuality. When it was sunny, over the weekend, it was still miserably chilly. Like a large swath of the country, we are having some no-fooling weather hereabouts. Fortunately, so far today it’s merely been torrential rain. But ice is promised overnight,…

Lampshadow

This is what I saw yesterday, literally first thing on opening my eyes. I love the contrast between the fabric textures, the wood of the base, and the patterns of the morning light. Fortunately, my phone was on the nightstand and I was able to snap the picture without even getting out of bed. Thank…
