Who Knows What Day It Is?

Give us human beings a few days off from our ruts and we forget what day it is! Joy and I went shopping. Just to get out of the house. We ended up at several places including our favorite pan dulce place here in CC. It was no easy task. The temperature outside is -56 […]

What is the Weather There?

What is the weather out your window? But we have lyrics! Listen to ‘Spark’ Spark (Over The Rhine) It’s not the spark that caused the fire It was the air you breathed that fanned the flame What you think you’ll solve with violence Will only spread like a disease Until it all comes ’round again […]

Some Lyrics for Us All

I Was Made to Love Magic (Nick Drake) lyrics I was born to love no one No one to love me Only the wind in the long green grass The frost in a broken tree. I was made to love magic All its wonder to know But you all lost that magic Many many years […]

A New Height

To follow up on the post ‘Maya’s Return’ I add this as a pat on the backs of Joy and I. Joy and I did both of these pieces. The one called ‘Sueno de la Bruja’ was our first fun with painting dye on silk. Joy knew of the process, and I had the dream. […]

Maya’s Return

Today Joy and I felt a sense of accomplishment. We entered two pieces in a ‘Call for Entries’ at the Corpus Christi Art Center. Panic to make the deadline made for good motivation although I have to say most of the credit goes to Joy for encouraging me to fulfill some of the dreams I […]

Jean Lafitte’s Bed

I am told that a bed I have slept in many times once belonged to Jean Lafitte. I never doubted that it was not. I like to feel that he and I now have something in common. It does seem that the dreams I have while sleeping upon this bed have always had a bit […]

I am a Mexican

I am a Mexican As such I was born Of this soul is my clan Even through death I can’t be torn For death is a friend of mine ~ ‘Mexican’ from me can not be washed Through time or water or dress Use me, hate me, vilify me and it can’t be crushed Being […]

A Hint of Summer’s End

(Created September 16, 2003) I’m not sure that I can put this in words. It’s a feeling. The first cool, smoky hint of dryness in the air. It’s the feeling of loneliness, a sadness one can not ignore when Summer’s hazes are mixed with just a hint of cool announcing Summer’s end. It’s an ache […]

This is the time

OK, Read this: On ‘Personal Freedom vs. Authority, the Struggle of Our Time and Computers are the New Drug’. http://www.joebageant.com/joe/2007/05/ghosts_of_tim_l.html Lyrics from ‘You Set The Scene‘ (Love Forever Changes) This is the time and life that I am living And I’ll face each day with a smile For the time that Ive been given’s such […]

Forever Young

Lyrics: Forever Young Lets dance in style, lets dance for a while Heaven can wait we’re only watching the skies Hoping for the best but expecting the worst Are you going to drop the bomb or not? Let us die young or let us live forever We don’t have the power but we never say […]

Looking back

My days go by and I wish for more Time better spent with work I enjoy But only the past seems to have the door Where I can peek through to see my ideal employ So today I’m blind and wander lost Barely seeing my nose in front of my face With many tomorrows I […]


I have this feeling there are things to be done Mountains to climb, races to run But I’m locked in this house, fog on the window panes And my body is wrapped in cellophane. I can not see the days going by Or break free no matter how hard I try My time is fleeting, […]


I am going on Ebay and sell a penny for two pennies. Then two for four and so on. With all the fools buying on Ebay it should take off. Or, I could go to work tomorrow. What a hard decision! Wish me luck. The greatest treasure is to live life, every day, no matter […]

Making Progress

Joy to Steve: Well, I should have said so earlier, but I couldn’t get online… I made it here just fine and have been busy cleaning up and helping Mama (she likes to complain about David not doing anything). David took over the room I was using since the laptop connects to the neighbor in […]

Ron Paul

I’m with you on this Ron Paul thang. Ron Paul Blasts Unconstitutional Undeclared Wars at GOP Debate I might have to get you to register to vote. But, in my (I was going to say ‘all reality’ but I changed my mind) ………….. in my way of thinking he comes off as too much of […]
