Micron

Operation I – Step One: Moving Micron

Micron is my beloved space-cockroach, my favorite nano-beast, the one and only chihuahua of my heart. It’s Day One of Ireland-related planning, and, of course, dog-travel is the first point of order. As of 3:15PM, I’ve spent about four hours researching, getting quotes, and talking with vets to fully understand what it takes to move a small dog from California to Dublin. Turns out it’s an expensive pain in the royal butts, but it could have been worse: until last …

Photo Flurry 096 – Sundrops

It’s fair to say that I love my work. [Some people might suggest it would also be fair to say that I’m a filthy, antisocial art hermit, but we won’t listen to them, no.] Painting, drawing, writing, shooting – all of it, love. But making time for actual lifestuff has become a vital aspect of my existence over the past two years. I’m increasingly fascinated with the idea of superior time-management – of finding my ideal balance between work and …

Photo Flurry 061 – Up in the Park

This is what I require, as often as time allows: Air, and green, and gophers, and a good book above the city. And watching Micron watch the gophers. There is no way to truly know whether she wants to befriend or destroy them. We let her get close enough to see and really smell them, but not close enough to find out her intentions. I’m 3/4 through Rant, but managed to resist plunging my hand into all those inviting burrows. …

With only a few days left until 2011, this will be the final Biorequiem post for 2010, but I’ll still be around on FB and Twitter. Now, photos from a fantastically delicious Russian dinner at my mom’s with Ales and Micron. Mom knows how to BRING IT, as always. ♥ Micron, modeling her new snow princess harness with mom. Deviled eggs with caviar. Mmmf! Rack of lamb, ready to be baked. Micron the Destroyer Appetizers: salad, bread, various cold cuts, …

Photo Flurry 25 – Pre-weekend Mini-chunk

Gaze into Micron’s eyes. She wants to inform you that your weekend will be made of pure win. Resistance is futile. Aaand now I go, leaving you with a new, 5-day-migraine-inspired addition to the 365 project. Until Monday, when Ales and I unleash something new and terrible upon you. Photo is hypersaturated. In reality, my hair is approaching the pale dusty violet over gray+cobalt+amethyst+black that I asked for at a salon last month. They failed to deliver. I took matters …
