Houseguest

One of the things I like about living in a ground-floor apartment in New Orleans are the fluid borders between inside and outside. This little fellow was discovered on my bathroom window yesterday, looking out over the green and bug-rich world of the patio. That's where he is today. I took this photo, fetched a colander from the kitchen and coaxed him to jump. Seconds later, sweet freedom.

  1. Hm, I think I love that glass as much as your lizard does. No, wait, bad choice of words ...

  2. I totally understand, Glenn. All that grime lends a certain je ne sais quois while providing a better toehold for lizards. This equals "perfection."

  3. Love that photo! I love lizards too but, unfortunately, so do my cats. :(

  4. Right about that, C. It's a shame that our cats and our lizards don't get along better. A.
