  i have been buuuusy!
working on my site, blog, proofs site.... still not close to being up & ready to go but closeR.

i did a shoot for by's boss today. she has more animals than us - 2 horses, a miniature donkey(!!!), two tortoises, seven dogs(!!!), and four cats. she lives out west where you can get lots of land and i'm jealous.

i did just pics of the daddy's favorite, a bulldog named daisy. cuuute. just finished processing a bunch and uploading them. overall i am not all that happy with them, but at the same time it was a good first shoot i think. i had never met a stranger to shoot their dog before. it was like an hour before sunset, so that would've been good, only the skies gloomed up and it was pretty dark. that sucks. and the dog was difficult in a few ways so i didn't get the variety i wanted, but not all dogs are going to be easy so it was good. i am looking forward to practicing more. before i used to dread it.. fear of failure. but now i think i have a LITTLE confidence and it has made me want to try harder... i feel like i am learning a lot and have a lot to learn so have nowhere to go from here but up. and that'll take work and practice!

in other news, amanda got here tonight. poor kid had such a bad time flying by herself for the first time. but she's here and hopefully her luggage will join us tomorrow.

tonight at the pet store i am surprised i didn't get kicked out. i had a bit to kill between shoot & airport so went to the store to get a treat bag. some lady was buying a bunny for her kids. a CUTE ADORABLE TINY baby bunny. of coures the store guy was telling her a bunch of b.s... they were picking out rabbit shampoo when i walked over there, for chrissake! that and he tried to lie and say the bunnies were already spayed. already spayed my ass. but i tried to make the lady understand that you need to spay & neuter rabbits and you can litter train them (she had no idea) and that it makes keeping them way more pleasant, AND that she could make sure she integrates the bunny into their lives rather than just leaving it in the cage. i hope it works out for them. i honestly just worry so much... a life in a cage by yourself is just no life, you know? so i hope that's not what they give that little sweet girl.

okeeeee, time for bed. early for me but i got a niece to wake up for now!

Making a difference

A small boy lived by the ocean. He loved the creatures of the sea, especially the starfish, and he spent much of his time exploring the seashore.

One day the boy learned there would be a minus tide that would leave the starfish stranded on the sand.

When the tide went out, he went down to the beach, began picking up the stranded starfish, and tossing them back into the ocean.

An elderly man who lived next door came down to the beach to see what the boy was doing. Seeing the man's quizzical expression, the boy paused as he approached. "I'm saving the starfish!" the boy proudly declared.

When the neighbor saw all of the stranded starfish he shook his head and said: "I'm sorry to disappoint you, young man, but if you look down the beach, there are stranded starfish as far as the eye can see. And if you look up the beach the other way, it's the same. One little boy like you isn't going to make much of a difference."

The boy thought about this for a moment. Then he reached his small hand down to the sand, picked up another starfish, tossed it out into the ocean, and said: "Well, I sure made a difference for that one!"
