The Year of the Dog

I was born in a Year of the Dog.

I am too much of a skeptic to believe in such things as astrology, but I cannot help being pleased at the ascribed characteristics of people born in “dog years”. Dogs are loyal and trustworthy. They are persistent and stubborn. You could even say dogs have a type of integrity. For the most part, you can trust a dog.

Yes, dogs are good people. I can deal with that.

Interior Cartography: Sometimes When You Crack an Egg, She Erupts……

A wise man told me not to repress anger but to channel it in a journal to let it go. Lava-spewing cracked eggs? You think I might just be a little p-o’d? LOL!

Interior Cartography: Flying into the Light


I spent quite a bit of time crafting this photo-montage (of both original and found images). I was trying to work into the composition images of stars and the moon, but the image of light erupting from a horizon would not go away. That must be significant.

If any of you are wondering about my apparent fascination with pelicans, it comes from an encounter I had with one a few years ago. Pelicans are actually indigenous creatures where I live but I never saw one while growing up. DDT and other pesticides killed them off, but when those substances were banned, they made a comeback. A number of years ago, I was hiking along a sea bluff and I came across a juvenile or a female — hard to tell which– perched on the railing.  She did not startle when I approached. Had I wanted to I could have reached out and touched her. Instead I just marveled at such a magnificent creature.  Right then she became a symbol to me of one coming back from the brink.  Whenever I am feeling defeated, I think of her.

And this is an image of her, THE pelican, on that day:
