Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. I like this photo. You keep telling us that he is resigned to you taking photos, but this doesn’t look like it. Sure, there’s some tolerance, but it looks more like amused, wanting to say something, and a hint of wanting to climb under the table and hide. LOL

  2. Brig — I like this photo. I took it almost a year ago. The camera was new. I was new, and O’Ceallaigh was freshly in love. The good news is, he still looks at me like that — camera or not.

  3. What a handsome fella you have, Quilly. 🙂 Thank you for sharing and it is very nice to meet you, OC.

    Nope…didn’t just snap the snow on quince pic…it is soooo hot right now that just looking at something cool is helpful. I have a picture of ice on berries that I was looking for, but settled on that.

    Again, thank you for pointing me in the right direction since I thought everybody in the band was him, but him. I won’t make that mistake again.

  4. Cath — he has very expressive eyes.

    Juliana — thank you.

    Nessa — you are soooo silly.

    Amber — there were probably others confused as well who, unlike you, didn’t say anything. Right now they are silently thanking you for your bravery.

  5. Carletta — when OC saw that I featured him online, he was speechless. He just kind of got that dazed look in his eyes ….

  6. Hi, OC. You’ve got a spoon there. I’m wondering if a dessert was involved as this picture was taken.
    You’ve got yourself a good looking man, Quilly. I’m sure he is as kind as he looks.

  7. Brian — in a happy kind of way.

    JD — I believe ice cream followed his meal. And OC is kind. Sometimes he seems a bit too good to be true.
