When walking past my Dad’s bee boxes this morning, I was pestered by one and it became lodged in my hair.

Recently, DJ, the Buffhead, and I have been bush trekking. The State Forest, five minutes drive from my house, has dozens of fire trails you can meander yourself and your canine along.

When you’re up before the kookaburras, mate, you know it’s… Continue reading My Day: The Beginning and End
I was away at painter’s tech this week. Each day I drive across this river to get to class. I walked down to the little jetty one morning and snapped some shots of the boats, the river and the general ambiance. Doesn’t this boat make you want to jump aboard and chugger-chugger away?
