It’s been an urge that just wouldn’t go away, years’ worth of itches I’m finally scratching. I want to write, express myself, create. I’ve learned enough about myself to know that in order to do it, this website, I have to throw myself into the driver’s seat and try not to think too much.¬†Otherwise it won’t get done and the hankering will continue to make itself known. The perfectionist tendencies I carry in the backseat work as good as a stop sign but I will overcome! So please, bear with me. Making up my mind is sometimes a ridiculously large obstacle but you will see some changes around here as I learn. I hope this won’t turn you away, seeing something new, a modification here or there. I have to get it out NOW and adjust as I go along otherwise the itch will become unbearable. More intolerable, I would be disappointed in myself.


A Potato Head toy put together in a mixed-up way, with four eyes, two sets of teeth and other unusual choices.

When Sonny created this beauty, he didn’t second-guess himself. It was so perfect it needed to be photographed.

Update:¬† I threw this out here and then spent weeks messing with the set-up, looking at applications, new models, “optimizing,” etc., and thus, sabotaged myself. I ended up with the site address not working and myself locked out. Typically me. I had gone from getting the word OUT to wanting to have things set up perfectly from the beginning. There’s that illusion of perfection showing up again. The unobtainable!¬† *scream*

*sigh*

What’s more important, the vehicle or the passenger? The vehicle is now up and running again.

I present the passenger, the traveler, a life.

The journey has begun.
