traffic light outside, take two

Two hours. The green light is only about 15 seconds, the red light is about 45 seconds. You can barely see the green in the picture, though in person it appears much brighter than the red.

geese flying south

Add Video video

I haven't seen the geese flying south for the winter in a really long time. My studio must be in their flight path. They are so loud!!!

Mermaid or mud flap?


This is just down the road from us. I think she has to arch her back that way to hold up her enormous breast.

For those who care, this is a one hour exposure of the traffic light as it shines on our house.

low flying planes

















We went to Bangor, Maine for Jon's opening last week. Maine has some of the most beautiful skies I've ever seen. And some low flying planes!

A Moment for Food

Lately I've had some pretty crazy and good food. Starting backwards from today... Bacon and Sausage pancakes at the Purple Cow House of Pancakes in Maine. This is a picture. Yes, that's butter in a pool on top. These are even bigger than my head, and delicious.

Before that, we had Mascarpone stuffed strawberries at Nick's on Broadway in Providence.

Last weekend, I had a "garbage omelet" at The Wooden Spoon in Ashford, CT. It was "chef's choice" and had ham, onion, red peppers, and the most amazing, cream cheese. So good!

Finally, next door to the Wooden Spoon is the Concrete Factory, a farm stand and ice cream stand that has the best ice cream I have ever tasted (better than We-Lik-It in Pomfret, better than Graeter's in Louisville and Cincinnati, almost as good as the gelato in Venice). Their Coconut Cream Pie flavor is amazing, but the true test of good ice cream is the vanilla, and it is transcendent.
