More Net Zero Construction Notes

The further along we are getting in this building process the more apparent it’s getting that not many people know what the heck a Net Zero house is. In fact, we have not run across a single person that knew what it was when we tried to explain that we are building one. And this […]

Escape to Mexico, Third Edition

It took me years to convince Karlo to visit Mexico and now that he’s been there, it’s hard to drag him away. If he had it his way he would just stay in the ocean for the rest of his life. I can understand. I’m not at all a water person. In fact, it’s normally […]

Going Green

How many times have you fantasized about calling your cable company and telling them to take a hike? A few months ago I called them just to downgrade our cable and cancel our land line and it was the best feeling. Next month I can make the call that says, “I quit.” That won’t feel […]

There’s Something About Maine

It’s hard to describe what exactly it is about Maine, but there’s something . . . Maine is a unique and inviting place in so many ways. It has always felt like home to me even long before there was any glimmer of chance of actually living there. Over the past 4 years I spent […]

My Love/Hate Relationship With Tripods

There is no question that I sometimes love and hate tripods and I admit . . . it’s mostly hate. Well, I should say it has been mostly hate up until recently. I even pride myself on the reputation that I’ve built up over the years at photo workshops. At first the instructors work very […]

The Next Chapter

The next chapter of our life is about to unfold and it’s about time I start documenting it. I’ve been so busy lately with my never-ending To Do list, never making any time to blog and that needs to stop. It’s so easy to find excuses to not write and I don’t want to let […]

My Introduction to Animation

It might be difficult for me to compose this blog posting because my brain has still not recovered from the past three days of information overload. It was unbelievable how draining it is to be on your toes every second for 8 straight hours for three straight days. Under normal circumstances I can’t focus on […]

Looking vs Seeing; Listening vs Hearing

I recently watched a photography lesson where the instructor gave a lengthy discussion on the difference between looking and seeing. The lesson itself was “How to See Like a Photographer.” They were very careful in the wording of this lesson and the entire point was to illustrate the difference between “looking” and “seeing.” A great […]
