A Nice Photography Site

I came across Chuck Pefley's photography site and thoroughly enjoyed it. I thought some of you might like to take a peek, too.

I found my way to the site via Abe Lincoln's photography and writing site... its another great place to visit every day.

On to chit chat....

Today has started out swell. First, it was actually COOL this morning. It got cool last night and get this... with a breeze! I kid you not. So between last night and this morning the apartment is a reasonable place to be right now.

Today is my birthday. I usually don't think about it. Its just another day. But for some reason I am embracing it and talking about it. After all, its a milestone. 65 yrs. I wasn't sure I would make it, but I did. How about that!

I got two calls this morning. The first one was from my daughter C. (aka 'mom') wishing me happy birthday. She always remembers... even when I don't. Then shortly after that I got a call from one of her friends, Danielle. She was also wishing me a happy birthday. We had a nice chat... she (hubby and three kids) has just moved into a house after spending about a year living with her parents in a very small tiny house. I don't know how they did it without killing someone. Anyway, she's loving it. The house itself is a little small, but has three bedrooms and a HUGE backyard with several different kinds of fruit trees. Next year there will be a veggie garden.

In a few minutes I'm going to try to "meditate" a little and then spend the afternoon painting. (Meditate is in quotes because its more a matter of just getting quiet and hopefully centered. I need the MUSE TO COME KISS ME TODAY!)

Thanks for all the birthday greetings, even a surprise one from Chuck Pefley, one of Seattle's finest photographer. How do I know this? I don't, but I enjoy his pictures of Seattle and how he can sit down with a bunch of Harley riders and share his adventures with his blog readers.

Thx for the b.d. greetings Wanda and Leanne.

I've often wondered how many, if any, people come back to comments to see if the blogger has responded.

I'm not a socially adept person and I do not often post anything in response to comments (although I read every one of them), but once in a while I do. I know there are folks out there who make a point of responding. So... how off mark do I come? If you come back to see if I've posted anything, could you leave me a little comment... just a "I did" will do (or more if you feel like yaking a bit.)
