Yes, I love my bug close-ups. This ladybug was a trooper, and by the end a mangled trooper, while crawling up and down our arms during our nature walk last week. I'm sure it had hoped for a more minimalist morning. Week 8: Minimalist All you need on a sunny day.
Oh, you know, just minding my own Zionist business at the IDF museum in מתחם התחנה in Tel Aviv (gorgeous area, go sometime), when in a room about Israel's generals I notice a photograph symbolizing hope, future, and cold peace... Ho hum, just having a grand time with my ex-arch enemy. What's that? The pattern... Continue Reading →
After a mock wedding at kindergarten where my son was the groom, we all met up at the library afterwards and he ran off with the flower girl... Week 7: Love sneak a hug.

What is that? There's no crackers here..." It looks like chocolate. "Did you go into my special cabinet?" I ask her, with a suspicion that foreshadows... Continue Reading →
Challenging week. I actually submitted a flaky photo - a blurry pan with pancakes - just for the sake of submitting something (I've never missed a week!) but in the last few hours I was lucky to 'run' into this opportunity... Week 5: Panning Winner gets pan...cakes.
