Café Crem

Art, Music and Words around The Coffee Table

a day in the life of a writer+

The Billboard: “I capture this photo after the snowstorm where I live. I never knew the billboard was there on that street near the snow covered park until I had to detour this road and there it was.”

“the snow storm 60cm the worst in 50 years on record.”

“Our Christmas Dinner Party with friends held at a former Catholic Nuns Retreat home turned into a New Bed & Breakfast.”

Bonus: “I was sitting at the dinner table and snapped this shot with my cell phone and voila!!! an extraordinary moment captured. I said in the picture above that this home was a former nun’s retreat and the light must be Christmas Angels.”

Merry Christmas/michael

  5. Such great photos again, Michael! You really have the eyes of an artist, which is much more important than any technique you can learn somewhere… I don’t know if I told you already, but when you teach art, the first thing a good teacher should teach is to look… at least this is my opinion… some people can see, they don’t need to look… you seem to be one of them.

  6. Hi Michael!

    Fabulous photos! I especially like the one of the Light of Angels. That is pure serendipity!

    You all look like you had a wonderful party. Ours is coming up on Friday. I’m really looking forward to it, as is everyone else.

    Great post!

  8. Inherent within the vast ocean inside each of us is a curious observation! We are all in the same vastness. Is it not noble and our duty to do what destiny commands us to do? We cannot escape what is already been tasted when are lips have been parched by the sun and our thirst quenched by the springs that empty into this ocean. Are we not the little springs no bigger than a footprint at the top of a mountain each of us feeding into the vastness of the ocean each of us is a part of? What a great idea to think that each of us is unique like the foot step like mountain springs, and we all flow into the vast ocean and become one. So in our uniqueness there is serendipity and in serendipity we find that part of our stream that fed the vastness of the ocean within without that is our uniqueness. Perhaps that’s why God said I Am! within each one of you and the mountain stream metaphor provides a possible explanation as to why. Don’t mind me. I have been stuck in the house for 3 days and just got back from having a coffee at Tims and felt to write. Peace/michael
