I have learned how to do lots of things over the years, and have hobbies that come and go. It’s possible that I am a bit ADD. I get distracted by some cool new thing to try, then learn all that I can learn till the next thing comes along. I do come back to old skills and hobbies, though, so I like to save instructions and memories.

I will be redesigning this website over the next few months, and will convert it to WordPress from Drupal. It will take a while, but I am practicing consistency so you will see progress over time.

I want to live in an RV while traveling around the United States, while publishing more books and photos so that I can support myself. I have been working on this goal for about 7 years, but I keep getting waylaid by obstacles. I used to think it would be great to do it full time and year round.

I haven’t been posting to this blog at all for over a year. This is why posting doesn’t happen: I am a freelancer with several different things to focus on each day.

One of my goals for the next few months is to write more. Back in January I made an editorial calendar for this blog to help stay on track. It has been a struggle.

When I let my student in the front door at 12:30, I thought there was a large pinecone in the myrtle bush. When he left at 1:00 we realized that it was a beehive!

Near me on the wall of the orchestra pit of the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix, AZ. Another great way for stagehands to use gaff tape!

This Gulf Fritillary has lived a long life.
