Why Me #1000000000000000000000000000000001


Today, my feminine hygiene product rejected my offering.  For over 30 years I have been offering my mother-natures gift and this has happened from time to time, as I have slept or "forgotten" to check on how the product was holding up.  But the ramifications have been small, and really nothing a little bleach couldn't take care of.  Today was not like any of those days, no today was special.

Try to envision this...here I am working, minding my own business, when out of no where I stand up-to stretch and yawn!!!  And I feel, warmth.  Not the warm fuzzy find either.  To my horror, I ran to the ladies room because I knew what it was.  My Aunt Flow.  Why the fuck is she visiting me at work any way & why the fuck isn't the expensive, yet pretty product working properly.  This, explosion, literally went around the product and my panties and decided to go directly down my leg...thank goodness I have on black pants that are apparently very very absorbent.

So here I am, standing in the ladies room at work - in the large stall - with no pants on - rinsing said pants out in the sink.  Of course I have to meet a young man regarding a space we rent on campus in about 15 mins.  OF COURSE!

So needless to say, all the warmth is gone and has been replaced with cold & wet...but at leaset I am clean.........................clean - but cold!

No Greater Love


There is no greater love then the love you feel for your own child.  But what if that child is not your own, do you still feel that great love that you felt when you held your fresh newborn in your arms, after you cried, shit and pissed him/her into the world?  The answer is yes, of course!

Not only do you extend your love to someone else, but you extend your love to someone you do not have to love.  No biological connection, no strings.  This love comes back to you, fierce new & unexpected.  It's a wonderful gift to be loved by a child.  It's a gift I hope I have never taken for grated and hope to never take for granted.

Am I an Asshole?



It occurred to me yesterday, during my work day, that I may be an asshole.  I mean, this is an unconfirmed declaration - but maybe it's true.  I seriously think I need to do some extensive research on the matter & ask those closest to me - past & present.

Now, having said that, it certainly doesn't take away from the shitty things shitty people have said or done to me - but maybe MY response and maybe MY reaction was assholeish!  But does that make me an asshole or does that make me someone who behaved LIKE an asshole?

Just a thought.....something to ponder today for sure!

Oh Come ON!


Man, so for the past few weeks I have received more inquiring folks and interest in hiring me then I had in the last six months before I decided to close down shop!  Now, mind you - they probably all would think I was to expensive - but still, an inquiring is always a possible new (or even old) client.  Boo!  LOL!

It doesn't make me want to open up shop again though, I feel very happy when I say "I am so sorry, I actually am not working in photography as a professional anymore, but I am happy to give you a few names of some great photographers!"  And I do have an amazing list to share with those who email me back (non so far have).
