Blind Spots


The back reads: “Claudette Christmas ’95”

These are all over the house.  Little things that were hung up when new over 20 years ago.  We have become so accustomed to seeing them that they have become invisible.  No one notices that they are out of season or there at all.  I walk by this every day and it passes within a few feet of my eyes, but it no longer registers.  I know the likely explanation for this has to do with the body’s response to a chronic stimulus, but it feels like there is something else going on.

All in for Comic Con


Giving  NYC Comic Con another try this year.  Did not know what to expect last year and put minimal effort into costume.  Just going for the experience this year and not expecting to get into any panels or get that one great photo.

Life Under Water


Sometimes it helps to change your environment when trying to sort things out.  Went snorkeling by the north end of Lake George last weekend.  Have not been snorkeling in a lake since about 1968.  Was nice to step back from terrestrial life for a while.
