Hi. My name is Catherine. I am a freelance writer and illustrator, who occasionally does a spot of research.
I live in Cape Town with my husband Doug and our dog Larry David. I like to draw, walk in beautiful places, and watch crap loads of television. Doug likes to play music, take photos, and make the most delicious sourdough rye I’ve ever tasted.
If you are interested in all things culinary I contribute to a breakfast tumblr called BKFST with my wonderful internet friend Miss Moss. I also have a tumblr for things I like but don’t get around to blogging about.
Please feel free to write me an e-mail and/or comment. I love hearing from my readers.
Thank you for the postcard! I just love it. Isn’t it fun being part of the Benevolent Postcard Society? Happy Holidays!
I found you on the Interwebs. Your webpage is cool. Cool indeed.
I just received your April BPS card – Thank you! It was lovely (just my style).
I have to admit: I am not living in NY. I grew up there, but I am living a bit all over the place. In fact, I was just last month in SA/Botswana/Zambia/Namibia. I love your country and look forward to every visit (I’ve been there 3 times). You can see our travel photos on http://www.bumpytours.com.
Otherwise I like to post some of my photos on my blog of where I am, what is inspiring me.
It was a pleasure to discover your blog – very nicely done!
Looking forward to staying in touch.

I saw your post about the Austrian shoemaker. I usually don’t comment, because I feel it’s too self-serving. But my father’s shop on 72nd and Lexington does better shoes than any European store or cobbler. He has been said to have the skills of a surgeon and the soul of a poet. Not sure if I believe the poetry, but I’m sure all poet daughters assume their father are just speaking whatever they’d like.
