The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.

Who has two thumbs and learned how to drive a 1914 Ford Model T today? This girl.
Baseball and boring books about the Civil War. Two of Jonmikel's favorite things!
Evening at the docks in Rockland, Maine.
The view from our window is looking a little more Spring-like today!
Event season at the Owls Head Transportation Museum is almost here!
Obey Giant! Out and about in Portland after oncology visits for Jonmikel.
Uninspired today. On an unrelated note, the ceiling lights in the bedroom are a 50s kind of ugly.
Kat’s 365 Week 18: The Diagnosis
Wed, 15 Jul 2015 12:35:16 +0000
Trying to stay positive the day after diagnosis.
For those of you who don't know, my husband was diagnosed today (yesterday now) with an aggressive form of cancer that at best will leave him with physical challenges for the rest of his life. We're exploring our options at the moment, but he could really use some good juju from everybody right now.
Enjoying a quiet evening in our apartment.
The schooner unwrapping has begun!
Even though Mainers don't seem to appreciate thoroughbred racing, I have my Derby hat on and my mint julep at the ready. It's post time at the Kentucky Derby!
Art Walking in Rockland, Maine.
The first sail boats have arrived in Rockland Harbor!

With all the goings on as of late, I almost forgot to take a photo today.
Waiting at the hospital.
Jonmikel getting ready for surgery. :-(
Pulley on the wing.
Introducing: The Raven, a completely custom car built from 1950-1959.
Admiring my 1918 Victor Victrola. Still works, if anyone wants to listen to some classic Gershwin.
Working on my jerk chicken recipe.

Trying out the new restaurant in town, Comida.
Welcome back to Maine.
Saying goodbye to the view from our house in St. Lucia.
View from the top: Looking out over St. Lucia from the top of Gros Piton.
Sunset at Sugar Beach.
Looking out over Gros Islet and Rodney Bay from Pigeon Island.
St. Lucia. A proper Champagne Thursday.

Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes. On our way to St. Lucia.
Opening the garage!
Well played, Belfast Public Restrooms.

Ohmygawd, why are you waking me up to stick a camera in my face? I hate you.
No, it's totally cool, Drunk Montreal Hipsters. I hated that mirror anyway. Je vais le remplacer par un meilleur miroir!
I've got my Cincinnati supplies, so let's play ball! Happy Opening Day, y'all!
The cannons at the clock tower at Vieux-Port Montreal.
First baseball game of the season! Cincinnati Reds vs Toronto Blue Jays in a desperate attempt to bring baseball back to Montreal!
Leave it to the Pardos to make a mad dash to Montreal, get in at 10:30 pm, and make a break for the first (albeit touristy) brewery they find.
Thanks to some cigars from my Best Woman, Laura, my packing for St. Lucia is now complete. This is all you need, right?

No Jimmy Buffett concert (even a virtual one from Key West) is complete without a little bit of these beauties...
Sunset on Damariscotta Lake. Yup, still frozen.
The boys in the shop were nice enough to let me sneak a photo during a quick break while they were working on the 1932 Cragar racer.
Checking out the Denver - Rio Grande model trains at the Midcoast Model Festival at the Owls Head Transportation Museum.
Setting up for the Midcoast Model Festival at the Owls Head Transportation Museum.
Happy anniversary to us!

Holy shit you guys, bare ground! That's a big deal this year...
Lamps at sunrise.
It might look like a pretty Spring day, but at 15 degrees with a windchill of -5, it's really not.
Needed to take a trip to Augusta for housewares, so we stopped into The Gin Mill, an old speakeasy, for a liquid lunch.
Friday night calls for rummy bears! The allosaurus indicates which ones are soaking in vermouth for the gummy Roys.
Fuel up, sir?

Bumpah stickahs. The crinkled bit on the left is the last remnants of our Conch Republic Flag. Time to invest in another one.
Doin' a little pre-St. Patrick's Day snacking and run into a bar buddy with a badass stein that he picked up when he visited Closter Schlögl in Austria.
A 1935 Stout Scarab, a concept car with swivable seats and a card table inside. The future was so bright back in the 30s.
Bash. If you ever get the chance to see these guys, take it. Immediately. “]
Here we go again! Because Maine.
A 1904 steam-powered pumping engine meets a 1918 American LaFrance tractor. It's love at first sight.
Drink Local. Live National.
