This past Saturday was March 17th. Otherwise known as St. Patrick’s Day. Just learned about another saint who shares the same day as St. Paddy. She’s Saint Gertrude of Nivelles. She’s the patron saint of cats, travelers and the mentally ill.

Now I’m not Catholic. I’m more informed about Pagan deities than Catholic Saints. However when it comes to spirituality, everything connects. In fact, saints are often used for decoys for various deities in other belief systems. That’s a whole other subject itself.

This saint is not to be confused with another saint of the same name, Saint Gertrude The Great, who was a German Benedictine, mystic, and theologian. This particular Saint Gertrude of Nivelles has a different story. Recently her name has been spread on the Internet as the saint of felines. So next you’re spending quality time with your kitty, give Saint Gertrude a little thanks.

Wanted to do a different type of style, so here’s Valentine number four. Which of course, is two days late. So much for posting on Valentine’s Day itself.

Well okay. My last blog post was somewhat of a purge. If you managed to completely read through the entire rant, I applaud you. Seriously. Thank you.

For the record, I’m not really an angry person. On the plus side, now that’s been posted, time to move on. Well…I had already moved on, but I felt it needed to be addressed nonetheless. Since it was a new year, time to get rid of the garbage.

Anyway…some good news. The ‘Grumpy Cat’ portrait I did last month has now been posted to another website. You can check it out here:

Just scroll down and you’ll come across mine.

Until next time…

Since early this year, I’ve been working on my photography. Taking one step beyond the beloved Instagram, I like to take the photo imperfections, and blend them into the process.

It all started when my good friend found a working manual film camera for under twenty bucks. He passed the goods onto me. Six months later as a belated birthday present, he also found an old digital camera. Added a bit of Photoshop skills to the mix for that unique look.

Here’s a brief collection of what I’ve taken so far:
