Been slowly working on my own version of this year's anniversary pic over the past week. Used to only take a day. Still not quite done yet, but the baby cooperated today and I am really close now.

I, too, would like to post something green for St. Patrick’s day... did you know the Cat’s Eye nebula has a lot of [OIII] emission, which makes it glow green? A lot of images show it s as blue or red, but it’s really a pretty green object visually.

The full moon was high in the sky as the werewolf pack stalked towards me, their eyes blazing with betrayal.

"Hey, c'mon... It's not that big a deal," I asserted.

The Alpha stood, growl-whining at me, "You only... pretended... to throw.. the ball!"

"So how can I make it up to you?"

"Throw!" the Alpha barked, the rest of the pack echoing.

I pulled back my arm and hefted hard - they bolted after nothing, again.

Risky, but hilarious.

Intensely Somber
The picture is from last week, the feelings are today's.
