Texture Tuesday ... getting there




Riding solo.
5  o'clock alarms can be hard task masters,
but it's easy to own the world at this hour once you're on your way.

Any seat was potentially mine ...



or I could line dance up that aisle!
(Freshly waxed floors ... they look pretty.
Not like in summer, with crowds and scuffs and well, mayhem everywhere).

Nary a soul to place a footprint at this hour ... not even me,



for I am spending time with a literary friend ~



Until dawn breaks, when I glance up to see worlds crossing over ...

as I have.


Where did I go?
To a most extraordinary workshop
 ~ with dogs ~ 
more to say about this next time ....
and if you are a cat person, perhaps I'll see you the time after that.

Linking up today with Texture Tuesday, Anything Goes eDition.
Techie mumbo-jumbo:  all photos shot with my iPhone, processed with the following apps ...
ProCamera (for zoom & selective exposure)

    1. BIG WHOOSH, Carolyn!! I've made a mental note for next time. There wouldn't have been a soul to see me except for maybe the occasional ferry worker making the rounds. Next time ;>D

      Thank you for your visit here!

    1. Suzanna, it was AMAZING and I will tell all about it. They let me take a few photos of the dogs *working* so that should help explain this "new sport" better ~ stay tuned, dog friend!

    1. Good to hear, Mo ...turns out I am struggling a bit with the book, not sure why just yet. Not feeling very pulled into the Salem perspective yet, finding it difficult to develop empathy for any of the characters. Funny tho ... I still like it.

      "imminence." definitely. And I did end up with company during the last leg of the journey ...

  6. With those beautiful images of clothing you really must get into Wolfe Hall. I have read it twice now and it really is an amazing read. Thanks for your comment.

    1. Me fave tunes for that enterprise are anything from *the boss,* but the type of socks don't seem to matter one bit ;>]]
