New things are fun, aren’t they? New clothes, new ideas, new days… they make you feel reborn. Although it’s probably dorky to say that out loud. And yet… I just did.
Here’s a new photo. I took it last month, recently processed it. The light was just right to make this row of bright green pine trees look like a welcoming committee against their darker brethren scaling the mountain behind them. So I named this photo that: “Welcoming Committee”. ‘Cause that’s how I roll.
If you click on it, it’ll take you to yet ANOTHER new thing… my revamped photo site, which I’m still tweaking. This is so much fun… creating new stuff and sharing with you first!

Looking Back, Taking a Breath
Stuff is happening. Fast!
I imagined summer to be “catch my breath” time. Hahahaha! Oh the folly and whimsy of it all!
The past few months have seen the launch of The Arcanum, a photo trip to the Olympic Peninsula of Washington, followed immediately by a trip to NYC, filming several episodes of The Chat which I’ve had NO time to edit, speaking engagements, my first photography show at Coffeebar, Truckee , the unexpected availability of the “Dream Team” for my fabulous new website (a 4 month, SUPER time-intensive process… it’ll launch in October!), a couple of Virtual Photo Walks – one of my favorite things to do, interviews, meetings about potential new projects and now… I’m newly the west coast Influencer/Artist (is that actually a title?) for Macphun Software and Tonality Pro, for which I did a press presentation in San Francisco, am now making videos and am TOTALLY stoked about it. Yes I fell behind on my blog and on The Chat… but like I said, growing pains!
These developments are all incredible, wonderful. I could only imagine them a couple of years ago. They’ve also pushed me in new ways – to do more, think more, be more creative, move faster than I had ANY idea I would be at this point!
The New Now
As an artist, this is exciting – because it feels like my dreams are now taking physical form – and are moving forward.
As a human, it’s change, requires growth and has its requisite growing pains.
And as a human being doing my best to “live my life as if it were my art”… I am beginning to realize that this is the “New Now”. Unexpected, demanding, fluid, thrilling.

This Summer Won’t Be Lazy!
I thought this summer might be relaxing, once I got past installing my photography show here in Truckee. That’s this week! More soon…
Then new stuff sprouted. You know the seeds you plant in the fertile earth, that with sufficient light, water and loving care eventually poke their heads above ground? Yeah, that stuff.
In my case, these sprouts (the ones I can talk about, anyway) are:
Here’s The Short List:
1. A new website is officially underway. But not just ANY website… it’s the first one in my history that’ll bring together all my worlds. Photography, voiceover, speaking, The Chat, teaching, LIL Galleries, products, blog… all under ONE ROOF!! But wait, there’s more! This site is being done with my absolute dream team of a web designer, programmer and copywriter, who will all help make the vision behind it all come to life in a way I’ve never quite managed before. It’ll contain fabulous functionality, be fun to interact with – be abfab in every way.
2. I’m working on a new collection of photographic art. This is one piece from it:
(Working title: “The KHutt Collection”. hahah! I’ll probably change it, but that entertains me right now.)
