Clap for Her!

My oldest and dearest ran the New York Marathon yesterday, averaging ten to eleven minutes per mile. The impressive part: Her time per mile got faster every five kilometers. Cheers, Renae!

Renae, just before the marathon

I’ve been remiss in keeping you up with Renae's photography career. Her first show was a year ago this weekend. Her work has hung in a gallery or been included in a juried show every month since then — in Reston, Newport, Louisville, Brooklyn. A gallery in Vermont wants to put on a one-woman show of her photographs. Check out her work, and buy a piece (or seven) while she’s still affordable.

Renae amazes me; she’s my inspiration.

Great job!! The most impressive thing is the strong finish--it's tough as hell to actually go FASTER as the race goes on. Wow.

Those "Ribbon Series" pieces were beautiful.

Would you like to borrow a lab coat for the show?

Thanks for all the good wishes!
Yes M. I am indeed blessed. Good friends make reaching goals sooo much easier and much more fun and they get to have champagne! And if you really DO want to buy a photograph just send me an e-mail from off my website. (Yeah, good friends let me get away with blatant stuff like that too!)
