Strange Thing Happen on the Way……

Strange thing happen today on the way to the forum…I ran into August Moody! Way the heck down in Nicaragua! He said a few things that might be of note: “I am a great writer. True. Since birth I have had chronic writers block. I have been searching for a cure. Some illnesses, hopefully such […]

Zeitgeist, except a couple

Here’s an e-mail exchange with my brother. Robert Reynolds wrote: Have you ever seen this movie? This guy does an EXCELLENT job of collecting information to illustrate what a lot of us already know. Definitely worth seeing. Don’t hesitate to skip forward to 9:00, though, because nothing really happens before then. Joy wrote: I […]

Four Letter Words

This is a rather dirty subject. I’ve been looking for a piece of property to buy. I want a nice place to live where I can grow some food and explore various other projects. One of the important factors in my search is the growing conditions, the biggest being the soil. What I noticed was […]

Wonderville Revisited

My digital collage ‘Wonderville’ started with a sweet potato that sprouted before it could be cooked. We took pity on the thing and stuck it in the ground outside our back door. We were surprised to see it take off, cover the back entry and actually bloom dark purple flowers. It was VERY prolific. This […]

Joy’s Lemon Basil

We have a garden. There is not much left this time of year except for Joy’s Lemon Basil. It took over our small space and she has made good use of it. The whole house smells of sweet lemon basil as it is ‘drying’ in our oven with just the pilot light warming and drying […]

Divine Bait

Joy and I walk from our house along Ocean Drive often. Along the way we caught sight of this cross hanging from a fishing hook stuck into a post. It seemed strangely ironic. Thus, the name “Divine Bait”. I guess we took the bait and this picture got saved.

My Life As A Chair

I sometimes like to pick up trash. Not just any trash. Something with possibility. Better yet, something with soul. This chair must be 100 years old! After I first saw it and drove by it 4 or 5 times I finally, one day, stopped and threw the thing in the back of my truck. It […]

The World as We See It

. It took me a long time but it was worth the wait. I finally found a movie to rent that I could relate to, laugh out loud to and learn something from: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas It makes me open my eyes to the fact that we are strangers in a strange […]

No Pie in the Sky

I made this pie today: Mystery Pecan Pie I wanted to say it is very good, but, well, it’s a mystery. I didn’t quite follow the recipe, since I had only dark corn syrup and no light syrup. I also added just a touch of lime to the cream cheese part and a small dollop […]

Rolling Thunder Through an Open Window

With window open rain fell as if the night sky was playing a piece from its most loved composer, a master piece. The percussionist was at her best. I don’t believe I have ever heard thunder roll for so long and so magnificently. The long last ending seemed to rattle the window one last time […]

Today’s Lyrics

To make your own lyrics is to put your life to music. Every day is just a song. What do we add to it? Today is the day I have waited for I have time to live, though it be brief Each day is as life; how could we want more And time takes it […]

What if Mark Twain had Gone Deeper?

Mark Twain is a Mentor, Inspiration to me. I was in a dream as my place on the Earth, again, found the Sun. Glory be for that. If it was up to me we would all be spinning off into Oblivion, hopeless. I was with people new to me (in my dream). A woman of […]

Face to Face

  ‘Face to Face’ (photography by V. Thrasher) And I am listening to bombs exploding in the distance As Midnight rolls around I’m thinking of ‘Seeing Past and Into’ Magical diversity abound Are we seeing past?: Color, Gender, Age, Youth Religion, Handicap, Nationality Beauty, Uglyness Children, Old People Strangers, Familuarity And Different Creatures to boot!
