365 Project - Day 5 - "Cabinet of Curiosities"

January 05, 2011 - "Cabinet of Curiosities"

Still feeling sick, but definitely better. Spent most of today resting and recovering.

Wrote a music review article for my blog of my picks for the "Top Ten Albums of 2010", which you can find HERE.

Quiet. Calm. Relaxing day.

Running out of "oomph"... decide to poke through my Cabinet of Curiosities, looking for a photo. Collections of bones... skulls... teeth... religious artifacts... divinatory tools... and other "goodies".

My eye gets caught on this small skull from a rather young raccoon. I found this while walking through the woods near Lake Mohegan (NY) with my friend Chip back in 1993. The skull was still "fresh" when I found it... and I had to boil it and bleach it to get it to the clean state that it's in now.

I pick up the skull... place it on a bit of black fabric... take some shots while remembering the past. Then I put the skull back in the Cabinet... and take one more shot - which turned out to be "the one".

Fond memories...

Life is good!
