trolls blow

I just returned to my blog after a long absence to find two bitter and antagonistic comments (which I won't dignify by publishing here) conveniently written by 'anonymous'. We're confident we know the identity of this individual, but since I cannot respond to her personally, given her cowardly choice to remain anonymous, I am taking a moment to acknowledge that I have read her venomous words and promptly dismissed them, and that I hope she can find the help she needs to move on with her life and focus on being a more authentic and positive human being. 

Spreading negativity through anonymous web commenting is a terribly sad and repugnant pastime. Please discourage others from engaging in this behaviour wherever possible. 

Much love to all the rest of you! I'll be remodelling the blog shortly and returning to regular posting later this Spring, hopefully without the further interference of silly little trolls.

Walking in Memphis

Finally got around to finishing the video my husband and I came up with on our last trip to Memphis. He really nailed this one. Best. Air piano. Ever.  Enjoy!

Movin' Right Along...

I think it might be time to admit that the likeliness of me returning to regular posting here is beginning to dwindle.  there's always a chance i'll jump right back into blogging, but for the moment i would like to thank everyone who has ever visited me, and to encourage anyone who has enjoyed their time here to check out my photography site and to follow me on instagram and/or twitter (@PokeSalad). hope to run into you there! xo

A Christmas Message

Hello all,

It's been so long since I have written here.  This year has been a busy one, full of events both fortunate and not.  I hope to come here more often in 2013, but for now, I'll leave you with this Christmas message from my husband and I, along with our very best wishes for the holiday season.

Much love to you and yours

were was monstrum when i was wee?!

check out these wonderfully imaginative playgrounds by Monstrum. the following is from their website:
MONSTRUM believes that playground design should be a reflection of the world surrounding us. We see the world as a place full of colour. We meet boys that like pink and girls that likes trees, so why only play on a monky frame and a sandbox, when you can play in a moon crater or a submarine or a giant spider or an enormous snail or a Trojans horse or a rocket or an ant or a princess castle. The fantasy is infinite.

how awesome is that?! see more here.
