No Laughing Matter. I'm no photographer.

So here was this morning's project: a request. But lemme clear the air on my photog skills: I got none. **Note the brighter light on the right, and the glare in several areas. Ace!

Remembering the classic line from Ferris Bueller, "Sir--Please. ...You have nothing to worry about. ..I'm a professional."

One Day Like This.

Beautiful day! Got some last-minute shopping done, stretched some last-minute painting sales, and enjoyed the weather. It was actually pretty warm today. Must be spring.

Time to plant the chickens!

Hey Joe..

Watched "The Future is Unwritten" a bit back, and have had the soundtrack on my playlist ever since. It's a strange mix-- Elvis, U-Roy, MC5, Woodie Guthrie.. and Joe Strummer's several band-lives.

"Tracy, are you serious? That's crazy-all-over-the-place!"

I know, right?

Complete with Joe-as-DJ comments in between songs. I can't explain why, but it makes me feel like BBQ'ing.

and painting Joe again. .. and again.

Hey man, what's up?

Oh, everything and nothing, thanks for asking..

Working on a commission tonight... second of 2. The first I finished earlier today, then slacked. Now this:

Really cute tikes!

AND, I received the newest Naomi Klein book in the mail (which actually isn't new, but..). Started reading, but this weekend was full of the usual holiday chaos. Not familiar? The first thing I read by her was an old Harper magazine article. --a knock-your-socks-off sorta thing.

Holy Crap is this your lucky day or what?!? I just found it online here.

"Tracy, this is a Friedmanite economics expose during wartime-- I'm just not into it"

It's 8 pages (with pics). You'll thank me-- Really. That's how I get all my chocolate, ya know.
