This week's word just happens to dovetail neatly with a personal project, "Dog Days", that I've been working on -- so here's the star of our show, Sirius, who's responsible for the Dog Days of summer!
(Funny side note -- one dictionary says this about Sirius: "It is a binary star with A DIM COMPANION, WHICH IS A WHITE DWARF." Oh YES -- a sidekick and some backstory!)
A glass star made by a friend, hanging over a collection of flea market globes, became the setting for this shot. My finger puppet, Dogmatic, curious about who's been shining in his window all summer, goes to the ends of the earth(s) to find the source. Curiosity may kill the Cat, but for the Dog, it only increases his wealth & depth of knowledge.
