Henry Monk

Below is a photo of Henry meditating.


Henry spends a lot of time in meditation.
I believe this behavior is a carryover from

his previous incarnation as a Buddhist monk.

Feeling Small



This is a painting I did a few years ago,
when I was going through a period of
feeling really miserable...

Ouch!

When will I learn not to dangle catnip toys so close to Gracie? Her claws are fast and sharp!

Why I'm Not A Dentist

I am not a dentist because dentists frighten most of their clients, and cause them pain, AND because they have to spend time looking at awful stuff like this:

My Cup (painting)

Here is a small painting I just finished, the first real painting on canvas I've done in several years. It captures some of the good feelings I've been having lately...

Gorgeous Gracie

Here's a photo of Gracie from a few days ago... She is my youngest cat, a stray who came to me injured and traumatized. She is also a big fan of catnip!


And here are photos I took just a few moments ago, while she was rolling around in one of the kitty beds, in a catnip frenzy. In the first, she is looking up at the catnip toy I'm holding above her, and in the second she has the toy. You can see it is a very well used toy, too!




And last but not least, here is Gracie sprawled out in post catnip bliss. It is only in the last week or two that I've ever seen her lying around in this upside down position. So I'm thinking she has reached a new level of emotional comfort here in her new home. That makes me feel good too.

Me, 30 years ago...


Back around 1978 I lived near one of those photo booths that you could go sit in and have photos taken, and it would spit them out in a little strip. It probably cost about 50 cents. Below are some from 1978, and one strip (where I have bangs) from 1980.

Tobias & The Paper Towels

One of my cats, Tobias, is quite keen on helping me unpack the groceries, especially if there are paper towels involved. I took these photos of him 'helping' a few days ago.
