Silence.


I have a need for solitude, she wrote. That’s what this picture is about. Quietness and solitude. And, peace. I’m going on a news diet. I can’t keep reading about… everything. That’s not true. It’s about to be baseball season. I love baseball. The season is so long that the sport becomes a symbolic ofContinue reading “Silence.”

Party At Ground Zero


I started working on this picture so long ago that I forgot what picture I was going to use when it came to publishing this page. I suppose it’s a leftover of lockdown fuzziness. Or maybe I’m just losing my ability to think and remember stuff. I’d like to remember important things. Maybe photographs andContinue reading “Party At Ground Zero”

Time Passages


Finally. It hit me this morning. I am in mourning. Not for the life we all once had. Although, that’s part of it. I’m in mourning for the passing of time. Not, the time that I’ve been discussing. That time has no meaning, no concept these days. Another kind of time passing. The kind thatContinue reading “Time Passages”

Time Fades Away


The sound time makes as it passes by. I slept really late for me. After a pretty bad Saturday, I awoke at a little after 10 am. The house was already very busy. Dog food was making. Laundry was washing. Breakfast had been eaten. After Friday nights horrible news I was convinced that I wouldContinue reading “Time Fades Away”

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”

The Blue Distance


The thing that I’m looking for. It’s not really a thing. It’s a person. Me. I’ve written briefly about my paternal family. I knew the family mythology. I knew what we were told. Every bit of it was wrong or a lie. A while back I took Ancestry.com’s DNA test. I reckon not much isContinue reading “The Blue Distance”

Ms. Lollipop


Storms come and go. This storm dropped a lot of rain. Its winds tore down some branches from weak and dying trees. All in all, it wasn’t as bad as it could be, or the hurricane that so many rumor mongers were posting on social media sites. There was no hurricane. There was even cyclonicContinue reading “Ms. Lollipop”

Borderline


Changes. Many changes. I really messed up some folks today. Here’s what happened. I decided to make some major changes to Storyteller. You can’t see them. The changes are made in the architecture of the site. The WordPress technician and I worked very well together. We knew that he had to fix a bug andContinue reading “Borderline”

Song of Sunday


A mood. A quiet mood. A peaceful mood. A jazz mood. Because it’s Sunday. Because it’s Sunday I was going to photograph a second line. Way out in the Lower 9th Ward. I’ve chased this second line in the past. It’s yielded some good pictures. I even traveled some to get here. Today. But. IContinue reading “Song of Sunday”
