Just In Time


I t’s not quite spring yet, but the weather is warming. Nature is starting its march toward the heat and humidity of summer. That’s good because it’s been a long and cold winter. We’ve all been through a lot. I’ve never lived in a time when there were so many big issues occurring at once.Continue reading “Just In Time”

Not to Blame


L et’s start with this. Thank you to those of you who expressed your sympathies about my pain issues. I still haven’t heard from my doctor. I wonder how he’s gonna feel after about 75% of his earnings go into my pocket. Even though he doesn’t care about me, I take my life seriously. EContinue reading “Not to Blame”

November


This stuff never changes. It’s swamp growth. It doesn’t care what season it is unless it’s super cold with temperatures down in the low twenties. Then, like every other plant, it dies. But, it grows back in a fairly short time. So, my year starts today. A friend of mine suggested that I start my yearContinue reading “November”

Believe in Life


C atching up. Or, Ketchup. Just as I predicated, violence begets violence. There was a protest in Wisconsin. Black people came out to protest the Rittenhouse Verdict. Standing guard on the perimeter where serious looking Black men armed with long guns also known as AR-15s. That verdict made everyone fair game on the street. WeContinue reading “Believe in Life”

They Do Things Very Strange


L isten to it. This photograph feels like a song. For me, it’s a Steely Dan song. For others it’s probably something different. It helps that Sunday afternoons — when I write Storyteller’s Monday post — is generally Steely Dan day. I usually listen to one or two albums will I develop, process and workContinue reading “They Do Things Very Strange”

It’s All Light


Fall. This is supposed to what it looks like. Bright orange, yellow and red. Leaves on the ground. That’s autumn. That’s fall. A change of seasons between summer and winter. The air cools. It dries out. I’m not dripping wet from humidity. I feel like being out a lot more. That’s what this picture isContinue reading “It’s All Light”

The Leaf


A little rain fell. The water cleared and cooled the air. It also left little droplets on the leaves that weren’t calling it quits for autumn. I generally have problems with rain drops. I cannot keep them sharp. I got lucky. That, or I picked the proper focal length for this kind of work. It’sContinue reading “The Leaf”

Outside Looking In


We all watched something two nights ago that we shouldn’t have. They called it a debate. I’ve heard also sorts of negative descriptions. They all fit. I can think of some worse ones, but they aren’t fit to print. I read that the folks who host the debates are going to change them. I readContinue reading “Outside Looking In”

The Sky About To Rain


See the sky about to rain, broken clouds and rain. Locomotive, pull the train, whistle blowing through my brain. Signals curling on an open plain, rolling down the track again. See the sky about to rain. Some are bound for happiness, some are bound to glory. Some are bound to live with less, who canContinue reading “The Sky About To Rain”
