Nice post, especially that first picture!
Surprise a flash from your past ! Can’t believe I bumped into your word blog today. I’m thrilled and inspired to see you haven’t lost your touch. Great work as always. Love the editing, your funky transitions sinq well with that awesome mix ! I can hear you laughing ……
I think I saw you had been working with animals. Good for you! I’m an animal whisperer every chance I get (chuckle). For a decade we had a hybrid wolf neighbor that I miss dearly. I was with the master (the neighborhood kingpin) when he passed and we looked after his beast in his vacant house for 2 years til he past. Some people do some caring things in their wills.
Hope all is well! We are just getting by and continually making lemon aid from lemons. The world hasn’t been kind to us aging folks.
The days of the BIG Belly Laughs are long gone. The wildest thing we do is stay up and watch SNL if able. I did get some belly laughs Cinco de Mayo, it was a good one which shock me with a athlete hosting. Hope for humanity appears from surprising souls.
Peace & Ecology
Your so f..king cool Otway. That’s a truly profound act of kindness you gave to your 4 legged neighbor. It doesn’t surprise me at all that it was pure reflex for you. Dito for me on most of the above. Only I think I have topped it and plan on writing a book,seriously. I have been practicing massage on humans for 26 yrs. and now I’m diversifying to canines. Still studying for the certification and should be finished in another month. It’s a whole new world ahead of me. I have squeezed all the lemons I’z gots at this stand and have to open a new one to survive. Lovin the vintage thang as a stable. I’ve sold stuff all over the world and have met some pretty cool folks. Right now, I’ve inspired an Irish woodworker to make a massage roller out of Hawthorn wood from an intuition I had. He went with it and now I’m waiting for the first one he made in the mail. Check out what he sent me about the wood after I told him I felt it had medicinal properties and he needed to make it to sell for folks :
” The hawthorn features widely throughout our own native Irish myth and legend, Hawthorn or the ” Bread and cheese bush, or May day bush” has a very strong Celtic connections through Fairies “The fairy bush” Druids and alike but more importantly the Irish used the fruit from this tree for survival during the famine. More positive symbolism of the hawthorn is of an emblem of hope. Its genus name Crataegus, comes from the Greek kratos, which means strength. Its branches are said to have been carried by the ancient Greeks in wedding processions, and in Celtic lore, it was said the hawthorn can heal a broken heart. ”
Peace out Bro
Here’s Andy the Irish woodworker’s site :
I sent you an email………………..

I checked out petety’s site, San Fransico suits him, glad to see he landed there. He looks great. I wonder what ever happen to Neesie. I found Nat’s site online awhile back. Been in touch with Byron Peck, he’s doin some nice mural stuff in DC facilitating opportunities for kids in his community as well.

Ok Otway here’s the post on the massage roller. Be sure to read how it came to be.
Pretty cool stuff !
I’ll be in the country this weekend and will inquire with my tree friend about if he knows of any locally. It would have been nice to seen it blooming. It looks more like a scrub, wonder how old the wood is for the size of the massage roller. My friend has a tropical tree that baffles us how it is growing here : http://otway.wordpress.com/2009/09/27/virginia-mahogany-2/
Check out this vintage tinee tiny Sanwa Shokai Mycro Japan 1940 camera that works ! :
This woman’s shop is wonderful !
My father had a spy camera during WWII that he use all during his tour of Europe that was about that size. I have no desire to mess with film again but am overwhelmed with emotion when I go to a movie theater and see something on the big screen shot with film. The Red Violin comes to mind as really affecting me. I’ll be on film in “Lincoln” if my scene doesn’t get cut?
Thank you so much for sharing the link above Otway ! I had no idea your Dad was muti talented and a great photographer
