Petra the Poodle//

Petra is the better half of my friend Sarah's poodle pairing (Tobie was featured recently as well, so shut up Tobie, you had your day in the sun).  Petra had a slipped disc that required her to wear fabulous glamour pants (read, eco friendly cloth diapers) when indoors for the good part of a year.  I'm happy to report, our girl has healed and voila! she is now glamour pants free!!!! 
(although those hot pants were nothing short of adorable). 

Rosanna Warren//Man In Stream

You stand in the brook, mud smearing
your forearms, a bloody misquito on your brow,
your yellow t'shirt dampened to your chest
as the current flees between your legs,
amber, verdigris, unravelling,
today's story, last night's trevail...

You stare at the father beaver, eye to eye,
but he outstares you - you who trespass in his world,
you have, however unwilling, yanked out his fort,
stick by tooth-gnarled, mud-clabbered stick,
though you whistle vespers to the wood thrush
and trace flame-flicker in the grain of yellow birch.

Death outpaces us. Upended roots
of fallen trees still cling to moss-furred granite.
Lichen smolders on wood rot, fungus trails in wisps.
I wanted a day with cracks, to let the godlight in.
The forrest is always a nocturne, but it gleams,
the birch tree tosses its change from palm to palm,

and we who unmake are ourselves unmade
if we know, if only we know
how to give ourselves in this untendered light.

When Harry Met Sally//The Ending...

When Harry Met Sally//Orgasm Scene

When Harry Met Sally//Favorite Quotes

Sally: Well, if you must know, it was because he was very jealous, and I had these days of the week underpants.
Harry: Ehhhh. I'm sorry. I need the judges ruling on this. "Days of the weeks underpants"?
Sally: Yes. They had the days of the week on them, and I thought they were sort of funny. And then one day Sheldon says to me, "You never wear Sunday." It was all suspicious. Where was Sunday? Where had I left Sunday? And I told him, and he didn't believe me.
Harry: What?
Sally: They don't make Sunday.
Harry: Why not?
Sally: Because of God.

Jess: You made a woman meow?
Harry: There are two kinds of women: high maintenance and low maintenance.
Sally: Which one am I?
Harry: You're the worst kind; you're high maintenance but you think you're low maintenance.
Sally: I don't see that.
Harry: You don't see that? Waiter, I'll begin with a house salad, but I don't want the regular dressing. I'll have the balsamic vinegar and oil, but on the side. And then the salmon with the mustard sauce, but I want the mustard sauce on the side. "On the side" is a very big thing for you.
Sally: Well, I just want it the way I want it.
Harry: I know; high maintenance.
Harry: With whom did you have this great sex?
Sally: I'm not going to tell you that.
Harry: Fine, don't tell me.
Sally: Shel Gordon.
Harry: Shel? Sheldon? No, no, you did not have great sex with Sheldon.
Sally: I did too.
Harry: No you didn't. A Sheldon can do your income taxes, if you need a root canal, Sheldon's your man... but humpin' and pumpin' is not Sheldon's strong suit. It's the name. 'Do it to me Sheldon, you're an animal Sheldon, ride me big Shel-don.' Doesn't work.

Jess: No one has ever quoted me back to me before.
Marie: The point is, he just spent $120 on a new nightgown for his wife. I don't think he's ever gonna leave her.
Sally: No one thinks he's ever gonna leave her.
Marie: You're right, you're right, I know you're right.
Sally: Most women at one time or another have faked it.
Harry: Well, they haven't faked it with me.
Sally: How do you know?
Harry: Because I know.
Sally: Oh. Right. Thats right. I forgot. Youre a man.
Harry: What was that supposed to mean?
Sally: Nothing. Its just that all men are sure it never happened to them and all women at one time or other have done it so you do the math.
Harry: I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible. _______________________________________________________
Sally: You see? That is just like you, Harry. You say things like that, and you make it impossible for me to hate you.

Icona Pop//I Love It

Lissy Elle//Reasons to Arise and Wash Hair

Artist Statement...
I discovered photography as an art-form when I was 13. It quickly became an escape from the trials of adolescence, and an excuse to let it soldier on. The reason to get up in the morning and wash your hair. To re-arrange your bedroom furniture. To save your money for a Nikkor 50mm 1.8 lens. To explore an abandoned house. To tie two dozen apples to trees. To cut out a thousand paper stars. To practice ballet. To learn to levitate. To have tea parties at the age of 18. To forge, through art, a place for yourself in the world and fight tooth and nail to stay there.

Pet Envy//Tobie Wan Kenobie

Tobie is my dear friend Sarah's standard poodle who, ahem, has high standards. 
Just look at that freshly coiffed summer hair, bright red bandana and comfy human bed.
Tough life you got there, Tobes...  tough life... ;)
