Missing My Mojo
I just loose track of my mojo, my moxie, my swagger, my game. Not
for long, usually, but recently it's gone walkabout. Mojo: "Self-confidence, Self-assuredness. As in basis for belief in ones self in a situation ... ability to bounce back from a debilitating trauma and negative attitude." Urban Dictionary Online
quality that attracts people to you and makes you successful
and full of energy"
situations like this, the only reasonable thing to do is to show you
photos of cats.
is Lucy, one of my herringbone tabby sisters that let us live with
them. It was taken in twilight, handheld, in very bad light with my
shiny new camera that I'm trying to learn how to use. Pretty snazzy
little zoom lens, not especially fast and therefore surprising in this
newest family member is Mi-ke ( close pronunciation Me-kay, Japanese for calico; "three
fur"). She was born in our garage and is still so much a baby.
Doesn't she have a great face?
is not a cat, of course. It's me in an old London Fog trench-coat
that I found while doing some closet diving. I paired it with black
Pixie pants from Old Navy, a fairly recent Bisou-Bisou surplice
blouse and some cute mules I finally found at good old Target.
not only mislaid my mojo, but I've lost my brick wall on my porch.
The wall is still right where I left it, of course, but this new lens
that I'm so fond of requires more distance than I have between me and
a three foot drop off the porch. So I have to find a new place to
make my shoot-and-run photos. I'm trying the north-lit garage front.
Not ideal, but I persevere. I do like it that, along with the lovely
sharp lens, this camera has a very nifty "soft focus" tool right
in-camera ... and I don't feel even a little bit guilty about using
the way, if you see my mojo wandering around, would you please tell
it to come home?
Even mojo-less, I can still find my way to the Always Sleek and Chic Patti's Visible Monday . Hope to see you over there!
