Seven years is how old this corner of the web would be if it were a furry, four-legged canine. Granted, this little blog can’t bark, chew things, or play fetch (yet), but it certainly feels like that much time has passed since I laid my first words on this space*. Indeed, (Cat)herine has seen more template changes than I care to count.
What has changed since that illustrious and now deeply romanticized (how quickly the lines I stood in have faded from memory) solo trip to Japan is nothing short of a miracle: a greater appetite for American fast food, certainly; a deeper intuition of direction, perhaps; a higher tolerance for feet pain, unequivocally.
Admittedly, I haven’t tasted a Mickey D’s patty since returning to the States, and though my sense of direction has improved, my planning skills most certainly have not: A headless chicken comes to mind should Google Maps ever fall to the Dark Side. I also haven’t touched the Canon AE-1 I used to shoot these film photos (because my ineptitude in most things hardware broke the twirly lever to wind up the film), but that may be for the better**. I promise, however, that (Cat)herine is on to bigger and bloggier things for its second year of existence, so make sure to watch this space.
**To be in one of my photos requires you to stay still for a minimum of 30 seconds, see again my ineptitude in hardware.
