Available Now

Among the assorted tasks, goals and obligations I've been working on my publishing project, My Resale ABC. It's an alphabetic array of things I sold on Ebay featuring my product photos and anecdotes about life and family. It's been very rewarding to bring this idea to life!

(in case you are interested the price is $24.95 and shipping and handling are $5.00. Contact me at to arrange purchase details.)

A Visitor Finds Evergreen Way

My husband summoned me to the sun room door with an emphatic whisper  "Check it out!" "Look!"  Inches from the house, on the bordering yew a praying mantis meandered (a female, as James pointed out, due to her coloring). We were enchanted by our distinguished visitor and she spent some serious time gazing in to my lens. It's easy to feel a little Cinderella-like with all the flora and fauna that are drawn to this corner in Sleepy Hollow we call home.

Small Things Enjoyed at Home

Every spring we plant a vegetable garden in a bed by our driveway that gets tons of sun. We do the usual tomatoes and this year my daughter contributed some orange cherry tomatoes with a great sharp taste. A volunteer plant appeared growing on a neglected trellis and its bounty so far has allowed two delicious sandwiches made in my father's tradition (and using the only available bread in our kitchen.)

Nearby friends were overwhelmed with pears and brought us some. They ripened slowly to the point where making a pie seemed like the best thing to do and we enjoyed it down to the last crumb. (and thank you Pillsbury refrigerated crust for simplifying my life.)


John Boehner resigned today, the Pope is in New York, President Obama is dining tonight with the Chinese President Xi Jinping in Washington and I am editing images of mundane activities pursued quietly in my kitchen. Sometimes, when too many concerns crowd my thoughts- cooking affords a pleasurable escape from all the doings of the world.

A Trip to the Circus (in Sleepy Hollow)


I attended the Circus Latino! last Sunday and photographed the performance. There is nothing more fun than capturing talented people in my camera. Picture bliss!

A few images from the press conference yesterday featuring some of the performers from this weekend's Circus Latino!. The show includes aerialists, gymnasts, and silkworks with great live music with a Hispanic twist. (and a special art exhibit as well!!)
