In further adventures at the zoo, this Bolivian Squirrel Monkey was utterly adorable.

Still slowly making my way through all the photos I took at the zoo on the weekend.

Here's a cheetah looking stylish.

It's taking me forever to process all the photos I took at the zoo yesterday, but here's one of a red panda snoozing high up.

I spent four hours at the zoo this afternoon and am subsequently exhausted and sunburnt.

(Kinda counting it a win that I managed to get this far into the season before my first sunburn.)


This kangaroo is a bit out of focus, but I love it for the expression on its face.

I made the traditional pilgrimage out to the nature reserve and came away with some decent photos.

First up, Common Centaury, a beautiful weed that was plentiful throughout the wetland sanctuary.

Out with the old and in with the new. My mother-in-law gave me a 5-year journal that I finished up last night. I had a lot of fun answering the prompts and seeing how the answers changed (or didn't) from year to year.

This year I'm starting a haiku journal in one of Paperblanks gorgeous 10-year diaries. I'm looking forward to this adventure.

Less than 7 hours into 2019 and I'm delighted to announce my first publication for the year! A pair of my photos appears in Issue 11 of Umbel and Panicle, a nature-themed journal of poetry and photography.

My last manicure for the year is That Glow Tho and Sparkling New Year.

Only 6.5 hours left of 2018 for this timezone!

As I've gotten older, I've grown less and less ashamed of the things I like.

Lean into your weirdness, embrace the things you love, and just be yourself.

Dear Self,

December doesn't end tomorrow. You still have another week to go.
