12-18-14 Shall We Dance?

I went to Northampton yesterday to pick up Abigail and her friend Ingrid for their Holiday break. Being college students (1st semester, 1st year no less) they were running late so I went to get gas. As I pulled into the station I saw a wonderful and remarkable thing. Luckily I had my camera with me. I didn’t want to intrude but I still like what I got…

12-16-14 Morgan O’kane

I had a few minutes to play (I hate killing time, rather have playtime) between appointments this morning so thought I would see what was up in Union Square, other than the “pop-up” Christmas market.

Heard some excellent banjo music coming from the north end of the square and headed that way. I found Morgan O’kane siting near the subway entrance playing.

I stood and listened for awhile and then did something I simply don’t do on the street. I bought one of his CDs. When I got home, I popped it into the CD player and have been listening to it, over real speakers for the past hour.

Check him out if you have the chance.

12-14-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Twinkle

 The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Twinkle.”

We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle.
Marilyn Monroe

In response to this week’s challenge, I thought the back cover was appropriate.

Nothing twinkles like sunlight hitting petroleum floating on water!

12-12-14 A Delightful Evening

Friday usually means The Weekly Photo Challenge here at QH but not tonight. The #ICPEDUBOOKS signing ended just a few hours ago. I had a great deal of fun. The signing went very well. I have randomly grabbed a few shots – except for exposure adjustments they are just the way they came out of the camera.

I have way too many people to thank so let me just say that Winona Barton-Ballentine who taught this course and wrangled 12 very different folks into producing some seriously bad ass books, rocks.

It was great to see Susan Amy Rosenfeld, Jeff Antkowiak, Louise Pedno at the event and the support I received from Melanie Neilson, Kathy Gunst and Andra Watkins is very appreciated. A special shout out to Katherine and Abigail for putting up with me for the past four years…

Ever the promotional genius…notice the way I am showing the back cover of the book. (Thanks to Louise Pedno for the picture)

12-11-14 Throwback Thursday

This will only be the second (third?) time I have featured a picture I did not take but I’ve been cleaning file cabinets and this appeared.

Why the beard? It seemed a good idea at the time…

Tomorrow is the big day. I expect I will be posting pictures of the book signing…
