Little Promises

I made a little promise to that legendary celeb JZ that I would find a winter lizard here in Hawaii - and quite frankly one does not turn down a mogul with the likes of that power, stature and influence.

You've obviously heard of JZ: nature mogul, award winning word smith, bird artist, rock star, blog ant, science chimp, feathernista , NPRsario and mether to jazz legend Chet Baker.

Forever hounded by the pupperrazi and Boston terrierists alike, her daily comings and goings have delighted, beguiled, bewitched and informed us. How many of us have nearly gotten fired from our workplace for uncontrollable outbursts of belly laughter w
hile reading her blog? If our adoration for her were turned into Grammys or Oscars -- her walls would be lined with gold. Her narrative style of writing is absolutely brilliant and her most recent book is an absolute joy to be treasured time and time again.

JZ, here's your lizard - the gecko of good luck in these islands. I hope it greens any bleak winter days ahead and reminds you of the promise of warmer days just around the corner.

If you haven't found Julie Zickefoose's (JZ) blog yet, I suggest you head over there right now! There is nothing better in the Blogworld. Get ready to learn, to laugh and to smile wider than you thought it physically possible.

Geckito burrito! Thank you, Timmers!! Your blog post is full of bull, but the lizard is very cute and much appreciated. I didn't know they came in such a bewitching green. Hope you're having a regular luau over there. I'm picturing you in a grass skirt, swaying gently.

Wow, what a fab picture and as you say so unusual this time of year... I wonder if it has any greater significance in your life...if I get chance I'll post an interpretation on my site and thanks for sharing, once again.

Wow... I haven't stopped in here in awhile, and what a lot I've missed! There's ALWAYS something interesting going on here. Your photos are amazing, as always.

And I now have three new blogs to add to my favorites. I'm reminded of why I want to be a writer -- and the kind of writer I'd like to be.

So, thanks! And happy travels...

I hope you're enjoying your trip to Hawaii. The lizard pic is beautiful. I hope you don't mind but, I have been perusing your blog to find other blogs of interest. You have a knack for sharing wonderful blogs. Thanks. I will even be featuring a pic from Debby Kaspari's website on Poefusion tomorrow morning. Have a nice weekend, what's left.

Tell me, does poi still taste like poi? I was fortunate to have experienced Hawaii as child, not a tourist.

Your post about JZ was so compelling that I had to check her site. Right you are.

I was about to say I so adore your writing but, I was just feed a peanut butter and mini white-chocolate chips sandwich and wow!

Both the PB&WC sandwich and your blog - Wow!

Tim, no one could say it better. JZ is the ticket. Hers was the first blog I ever read, back in the summer of 06. After reading her archives for a while, I finally found the courage to comment - you know we have a Boston Terrier connection with the same breeder. So, I guess you might say, Julie was my mentor and inspiration to let go of my inhibitions and just do it. Blog.

From a fellow lizard lover,
