I was recently invited to attend a community event in North Creek, New York. Just as a friend, to come join in the fun. Small town, friendly warm people that care very much about their community. It was a wonderful day of races and events, culminating in a band and dancing. It was like an old fashioned barn dance updated to a present day beat. The Back Porch Society was the band that had everyone's feet moving, smiling, laughing, spending good time together, neighbors and business all united to have fun and better the community.
Every year I have taken my four children wild blueberry picking at a special place dear to my heart, Lake Minnewaska. I have grown up hiking this preserve and it's wonderful to share it with my family. We hike to the waterfall, then to pick Wild blueberries, huckleberries, and wild black raspberries if you time it just right. we all fill a quart container, and pick in a beautiful field of low lying blueberry brush, and large blueberry, huckleberry bushes that grow intertwined with one another. After picking and eating in the sun, fingers and lips stained with juice from the berries, we head to the lake to take a swim. Cool and clean from our swim we hike to a wonderful precipice above the lake, a perch so fitting for a picnic lunch. We eat, talk, and spend wonderful time together. We end our day at the lake with a walk to the boat launch to skip some stones. Upon our return home, we make homemade berry ice-cream, and scones! Simply to die for! But for me the best part is the day we share, the memories we make, and the special time we have all enjoyed together.
I was given a challenge over the winter, to do a series of self portraits about my feet,legs,high heel shoes. In the winter these toes and legs are married to my ski boots. I have been waiting for sun kissed skin, and a nice pedicure. Then to the task of trying to make these muscular short legs, look long and sleek, and sexy in my high heel shoes. The shoot was fun, a lot to explore and discover.
Well, this is it. After untold hours of struggling through developers who didn't know what they were doing and a number of publishing applications, I've finally managed to launch Kpomography, a task possibly more complicated than putting a man on Mars.
