What’s the Best Camera?

Answer: The one you have on you.  For most of us, that's our mobile phone.  Sure, there are limitations, but it's still possible to get some good shots!    "Jolene's Life in Focus" actually started as an experiment in mobile phone art early in 2010.  Long before I ever owned a DSLR, I had my Motorola Droid.  So, I …

Little Hands

This post is an experiment to see if I can upload a photo and blog directly from my phone, the original Motorola DROID. Tonight, I'm at Red Robin in Burlington, Washington with some friends and their children for a birthday.  These little hands belong to Rick and Angela's son, Alex.  It was amazing - he …

Espress-O-Junction

Espress-O-Junction, in Burlington, Washington,  is my favorite drive-thru espresso stand between Mount Vernon and Bellingham.   The baristas know what I want before I order it, I love the rich flavor of their espresso, and the little details like chocolate covered coffee beans on the lid just top off the experience.  And really, when you have a long …

A Piece of Dirty Dan

Yesterday afternoon ended with a London Fog from Tony's Coffee (always done to perfection) and a stroll through the Village Green in Fairhaven where I stopped to read my new book, The House of God by Samuel Shem.   Chapter I of this book made me wonder if medicine is a good field to go into.  The jury is …
