i've started to carry my dinky little camera around with me. some mediocre pictures are better than no pictures, right?

these are bay leaves and lemon verbena hanging in the back room. pretty much the most beautiful bay leaves ever.

i just wrote a whole grumpy post, then deleted it. then i wrote a grumpier post on a different topic, and deleted that.

maybe it's better not to be grumpy right before i go to sleep (or try to).
