I was visited by this incredible, tiny lizard. Kudos to anyone who can tell me what species it is. There is a chance it was either semi-transparent, or a chameleon, because after I coaxed it into a tea tin lid to take it safely outside, it changed colors to match the tin.

At Saturday Market today I walked by these young men with my camera. The one in the white shirt yelled ¨´aqui, aqui´´, or ´´here, here´´ untill I took this photo. I´m happy, well fed, and sun burned. And we havenñt even gone to the beach yet.

Last night as we were coming in for a landing in the
This is what I've learned about people who think the plane is going to crash, first there is lots of screaming and praying, and then everyone starts to talk, or laugh nervously. False bravado.
In a group of two people in crisis, it seems one must always be more hysterical, the other in the lucky position of attempting to soothe.
In the end, no damages on the ground were found, and after an extra half hour of spiraling in the rather turbulent air above

Last time I celebrated Valentines day in any traditional manner was in grammar school. My Mother hand sewed me a pink blouse with lace detail, and a matching skirt. I wore the shirt to class over blue jeans. By the end of the day, the shirt was ruined, and I'd realized that as soon as Valentines Day stops being about candy, and starts being about social anxiety, it looses its charms. Since then I've worn black every Valentine's Day,played pool, and mirthfully refereed to the day as Black Tuesday, Black Wednesday, etc.
This year, I'm going to try something else, I really am.

The first bikes appeared in St. Luis Missouri. To find Ghost bikes near your city, or simply find out more, see http://www.ghostbikes.org/
"... little did I know the wrenching reactions it would cause, all over the spectrum. I also didn't realize the cascading effect it would have, as several other bikes have gone up since. The power of this urban symbol is clear." -- Ari Shapiro, member of Tucson Ghost Bikes

At the beginning of this fall, and towards the beginning of this blog, I posted images from Estes Park in my post announcing my plans to stay in Colorado for several months instead of several weeks as had been planned. The resulting images also became my second and third etsy listings. Being an Etsy novice, I listed each print of the series as a quantity in stock. As a result, three months later, they are still there...
I've of course marked both down bellow my regular prices for such sized prints, but all the same, I have the odd feeling I may just have to relist these late next summer.
