MUDD LAVOIE drawing cartoon faceFor instance, look at my portfolio page — argh! Am currently going back in time to every single post since December 2007 in order to upload my pictures directly to WordPress instead of linking to Photobucket. It’ll take me a while, so please be patient. THANKS.

FLOW photo challenge — day 22: in black and white

Posted in whatever

June 1957. My first communion. 
Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde church,
Verdun, Québec, Canada.

After the celebration, we were gathered in the church basement for the official photo. This is only a section of the girls’ group as I want you to look closely and try to guess which one of them is me. (I’ll post the answer in an update at midnight.)

RENO DECO MUDD — kitchen (part 2)

Posted in creativity, whatever

Remember RENO DECO MUDD — kitchen (part 1)?
And RENO DECO MUDD — kitchen (part 1.5)?


Maybe that’s because it all happened in 2013 and, of course, I never bothered to post the final results. That’s so me to leave things dangling.

But better late than never, here’s my pimped kitchen.
Hope you like BRIGHT COLOURS. 🙂

 Even when the weather’s gloomy, the colours brighten up my day.

That’s the dryer in the left-hand corner. Old apartments require loads of creativity — when it’s laundry time, I simply lift the skirt and voilà!

“Mere colour, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form,
can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways. ”

the shadow of emptiness

Posted in whatever

Poured myself a glass of water. Drank it all.
Put the glass back on the counter.
Saw the shadow…
