11 Random things about myself

At some point random things about myself are no longer random. Pieced together, they define who I am. Here are some ‘random things’ about this current moment…

As I write this, I’m sitting in my office having breakfast…one of my favorites, toast with almond butter and a cup of coffee, black. Sally, one of my cats, is sitting on a chair behind me. For such a tiny cat, she snores so loudly! My music player is on pause. I was listening to Nirvana’s rendition of ‘The man who sold the world’. The first time I ever heard a Nirvana song was at a spaghetti wrestling party in early 90s, and no, I wasn’t a participant! The weather outside today is a little too creepy for my taste. The skies are grey and the wind gusts are very strong at about 70 km/hr. I don’t like the rattling sound that it makes as it hits the roof of my house. Plans for today? Well, I might go outside this afternoon to take some photos, but may choose to stay in to assemble a dresser.

Well enough ‘random things’ said for now….

My street…


My house is surrounded by open fields. On a recent rainy and misty winter day, this house was the view from my front porch.

I live in the Canadian countryside. This time of year, there are not too many people walking on the streets. So, my mission of finding great subjects for street photography is limited. I did come across this old barn. It’s falling apart. I’m sure it once stood proud, but now it holds a history that is a mystery to me.
