again and again

in the watercolor class yesterday: Tulips. Again. We “did” tulips last week, too. I did not mind. This week, the teacher came with three lessons, take home lessons and stuff to work on: Using alternative tools to “nail” these tulips and getting around worrying about the details, kind of: Abstraction without losing the motif. Doing […]

Musk, conditioning, code and collecting words

Yesterday, well, yesterday, the blog was down for quite a while. A technical glitch, nothing serious, but my IT guru told me to wait writing and doing anything on the blog before all is set to normal again. So there we went: No post yesterday. Another glitch: I got a lot of birthday wishes for […]

4 coming in, 1 leaving for the moment

Today’s picture is a scaled down version of a 10 MB rose that is super dramatic.

click rates and taking a deep breath

get it now

It is nice to be back from Florence!  The four days in this great city, attending THE fair for selective perfumery, were just awesome. But, guess what: at the end I had a hard time standing, in whatever position, and my voice sounded like Zara Leander`s after a couple of drinks and cigarettes too much. […]

Consolidation of a newsletter

Today’s picture shows you the result of one of my activities yesterday: Getting passport-ready photos done, without glasses, not smiling, showing no teeth, for a visa application that needed to get out yesterday, super urgently, as there are not many days left to get it done. I did the photos in one of these do-it-yourself […]
