Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.


PostCrossing 3: Lounge Here!

These urban silhouettes by PRaile were my inspiration for this series. I’m kind of surprised that I have so few downtown-type pictures, given that I can see it from my front porch, but I did find this picture that I took a while ago of some random bar.

Instead of completely silhouetting it, I played with the “photocopy” filter in GIMP and kept some of the wording. Then I masked out the background and tried a bunch of different scrapbook paper backgrounds.


I’m quite pleased with the results, and one of them even got a fave on postcrossing! How cool is that :-)
