A note to our friend Pam and her Ragdoll Cat

laRGE and small kitty

All cats are different...


While visiting Pams lovely new home, we could not help but notice the giant, rug-like thing that was taking up most of her kitchen table.  I ambled over with my beer in one hand and reached out to touch the silky fur with the other when 2 large blue eyeballs flashed up from what I thought was the furry depths, then quickly closed.  I noticed the purr then, “ah, my, but that is a large cat…”  He is the Jupiter to our little, Ragdolls Pluto, the Hummer to her Mini, the whale to her guppie… You get it.  All Ragdolls are not the same but all Ragdolls are beautiful!

Thanks to Pam for this foray into silliness on a Sunday, love ya!  Later, LI

Thank you Steve Jobs

Li with her first Mac Plus


Li with her first Mac Plus

From the first time I played with Hyper Card and MacPaint on my Mac Plus at Rola Kimmerling in the 80′s I was hooked on Macs. Even back then, the creative possibilities seemed endless and more importantly to me at the time… it meant that I did not have to worry about the angst of paste-up, the “and” that fell off the board cause I didn’t wax it well enough, the slick that landed under the drawing board, got stepped on and had to be re-out-put on a tight deadline, nope it was all in the box!

Thank you Steve for your bravery and innovation, for your ability to bring your vision into reality, and for making it easy to be an artist AND love a computer!
