We were married in my mother’s living room, 42 years ago, and are still best friends.
My only regret: I doubt I will ever fit into that dress again.
Updated 2015-01-06: She found me! Sophie Cornell sent an email granting permission to use this photo, and she included three additional photos of small stones. Thank you, lovely lady!
One of my blogging inspirations is a program of mindfulness prompts called Small Stones that was offered in January for the last few years. It doesn’t seem to be happening this year, at least not formally, but I intend to continue writing my own small stones at least once a week.
I like to list my inspirations in the sidebar of this blog, but a column of plain text links is boring. This year, I found the perfect photo to illustrate my series of Small Stones, and attempted to contact the photographer to obtain permission to use it.
Unfortunately, the contact form on her site returns an error message.
If anyone knows how I can contact Sophie Cornell, please let me know.
On this first day of the new year, I’d like to look back at the old year for a bit. Oh, not the usual “this went well but that didn’t” blurbs. My retrospective is more along the lines of an author’s acknowledgement in the front of a book.
Every freelancer has a support system. We may not have employees or staff, but we have individuals and groups that we depend on for survival and sanity. In my case, I am grateful for:

Since this isn’t a single-theme blog, and my main goal is to become better at writing non-technical non-fiction, I use blogging challenges to prompt me to write outside my comfort zone.
Yesterday you saw Cavendish as an adult cat. Today, I thought I’d show Cavendish as a six-month-old catlet.
At that age, Cav had two speeds, bat-out-of-hell and stop. I caught this picture just as Cav went through a phase change.
