This first week of the year has been moody, quiet. My mind has been distracted, the fog photos from last weekend’s Sunday morning are a reflection. In too deep, far gone into the woods. Until the animals came …


I took a drive to San Francisco today. Wandered my usual haunts by Union Square and visited the galleries. As I left the gallery complex at 49 Geary, there is a toy shop up the block. These guys were looking at me and drew me back. Casual snaps, quickly done, but they lightened up my mood and made me laugh. 

Sometimes, that’s all it takes. I teach another workshop this weekend. Now I know it will be fun.
