For a little more than a week I have had the pleasure to spend a lot of time with Persil. As I mentioned before she's a beautiful cat, though a bit psycho at times. Her breed apparently has a hard time spending time alone and that becomes very clear from her behavior. She craves attention, all the time. Of course, it has been practically impossible getting her in front of the webcam...

Lizz Wright

This is... Great music! The last one is the first jazz song I ever sang; Reaching for the moon.

Popsicle toes are always froze

While I was lying in Bruno and Cecilia's fatboy hammock (great buy!) the other day, this was my view. It made me wonder where my funny feet will take me. Reminded me of a cute little song my mom used to play a lot when I was growing up; popsicle toes, by Michael Franks.

When God gave out rhythm
Sure was good to you
You can add, subtract, multiply and divide by two

I know today's your birthday and I did not buy no rose
But I wrote this song and instead I call it, Popsicle toes

Popsicle toes
Popsicle toes are always froze
Popsicle toes
You're so brave to expose all those Popsicle toes

You must have been Mr. Olympian
With all that amplitude
How come you always load your Pentax when I am in the nude
We are to have a birthday party and you can wear your birthday cloths
Then we can hit the floor and go explore those Popsicle toes

You've got the nicest north of America
This sailor ever saw
I like to feel your warm Brazil and touch your Panama
But Tierra del Fuegos are nearly always froze
We've got to seesaw until we un-thaw those Popsicle toes

Cat Man Do

As of next week, I'll be spending a month with Persil, the beautiful mixture of a Sacred Birman and Norwegian Forestcat, whom I've lovingly nicknamed psychocat... (pictures will follow). I've spent a few nights with her and must say she's quite demanding - not so much for food though, mostly for attention. Her mommy Miriam showed me the clip above - wow, this could have been inspired by Persil!

My mom has never been a fan of photo albums; all her photos are scattered in a couple of boxes. Every now and then I dive into them and I always end up finding something cool. This is my big brother Ed and me. See how I'm protecting my dandelion...

Opa turns 80

My grandfather celebrated his 80th birthday last week. We went on a boat trip and had a good day together.

I took the opportunity to capture images of the house my grandparents have lived since as long as I can remember... With love to both of them! - even though they are not digitally wired ;)
