If this interaction was face-to-face, I would be sidling awkwardly into the room, avoiding eye contact and mumbling incoherently in greeting. Continue Reading “Ch-ch-ch-changes”
This morning, I went outside to check on the strawberries. Five or six ready for picking, a few needing more sun before they become ruby red. I sat down on an old rickety deck chair, with my sketchbook and pencil in hand, and listened. I could hear a lawn mower in the distance, kids next door squealing, the iconic screech of the cockatoos; the general sounds of a sunny Saturday morning. Continue Reading “Saturday morning”
If you’ve been hanging around the traps for a while, you may recall I posted about wanting to notice the smaller things in life and capture them by taking photos.

How did I fare?
In my last post I wrote about my thoughts on 2015. Today, like the predictable blogger I am, I wanted to write about 2016.
Well, that was 2015. Apparently. I mean, I don’t really recall seeing it in full detail myself, but I’ve heard rumblings on the street that yes, that was indeed the year 2015 done and dusted. Huh. I guess that means it’s time for another summary of the year that was, hey?
