In The Days Of My Youth


Yesterday was terrible. Luckily, it only got worse. It really started the night before when we learned that a man who is a friend to us all in the arts community was shot four times in an attempted home invasion. Bad guys can’t shoot. What could have been four shots to the chest at pointContinue reading “In The Days Of My Youth”

A Little Sunday Art


T his is without question a Sunday picture. Maybe it’s more like an Easter Sunday picture. At any rate, it’s a spring picture. It is one of my brightest pictures in a long while. It is layered and experimental. The base layer is the same as the top layer except it’s been moved around aContinue reading “A Little Sunday Art”

You Just Have To


T here was big news in New Orleans yesterday. New Orleans Saints (American football) Coach Sean Payton retired. The city is in shock. Some say it’s just a game. I think that the team impacts the city in many ways. Allied jobs rise and fall because of what the team does. He’s an honest man.Continue reading “You Just Have To”

Garden Party


A Sunday photograph. Something bright and colorful for those of you who are still digging out of the wintery white stuff, which is a large part of the country. It’s already been some winter. And, there is a polar vortex coming. It’ll probably start raining fish like it did in Texas a week or twoContinue reading “Garden Party”

But, this is the start of Carnival and that means something even though I can’t photograph it. But, during paradeContinue reading “Thinking of a Place”

Way Behind The Sun


I t seems that this is one of those days. Mondays are like that. I start on the solvable issues and move to the fun stuff like writing this blog. I keep reading to, and talking to some bloggers who just have a terrible time doing this. Off the top of my head I’d sayContinue reading “Way Behind The Sun”

Autumn has the Purple Sock Blues…


F irst, the title. It’s a children’s song about autumn. It’s just weird enough for me to like it. The music is fun too. The picture is quintessential fall. All those golden colors contrasted against the evergreen leaves. That always makes my day. I hope this picture makes yours.

Windfall


A lot of WordPress writers are taking part in NaNoWriMo which, to my brain, reads like “No Mo Writing.” Writers are supposed to churn out 50,000 words during the month of November. I’d try to do it but I don’t have enough to say. Besides, my fiction would go something like this. One night heContinue reading “Windfall”
