Quotes, excerpts, slides, ideas and a POE-pourri of seasonings.

Uhhhhh, excuse me, there’s a moon in my coffee.

Looking<>Seeing

Wet your palate with a collection of my artwork, photography-like stuff and links to some Instagrams.

jOURnal

My bLOG jOURnal comes in many flavors. For starters, try the skit idea, Shoot Hockey Marsh Vrooms., then pick up a little fake history from The Origin of the Thinking Cap.

The main dish, however, is the poetry. Poem may be a four letter word, but don't let that stop you.

I recommend Frigid Bridget Meets the Icebreaker or Two Lovebugs Flying Into the Light. I could go on but I Gotta Draw the Line Somewhere.

Follow the Pen...

For those with a taste for adventure, Follow the Pen... is seasoned just right.

The appetizer, a brief  'story behind the story.'

Then click on the corresponding picture to link to a digital short.

When you are finished, close that window and finish with Rate Your Read, a light desert of a survey designed to make it very easy for your palate to wear the hat of a food critic.

Five lines off our telephone pole looked like a good spot for a flock of birds to land. I remember thinking how the lines reminded me of a music staff and the birds formed notes upon them. The scene, and that I had been reading a book about Leonardo DaVinci, inspired  Birds On A Wire.      I  wish I had gotten a photograph of the scene, but I was later able to get this shot with the robin standing in for the flock.

Birds On a wire

I had read Leonardo DaVinci believed music and math were closely related, that music, like math, could be calculated. Click through the Birds On A Wire images above to learn the musical message the birds communicated to Mr. DaVinci. 

Don’t take pictures for granted...take them for memories.

Excerpts...

The difference between use and abuse is only two letters, “a” and “b”. Since those letters are the first two in the alphabet, the distance between use and abuse is a short one.

Meeko

Quite possibly my biggest critic, Meeko has managed to delete several of my blog attempts. He is brutal in his methods. In one stealthy and lethal pounce onto the keyboard he can wipe out any efforts he deems unworthy!

Chaotrix - a chaotic matrix such as that created by a flock of migratory birds practicing for their journey...the flight of the chaotrix.
