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. […]

Habitual Thinking

A programmer friend of mine wrote me a note the other day, lamenting that he tried to figure out how to solve a programming problem, but was having trouble because he just couldn’t “see” the solution like he used to be able to. He’s been working for over 20 years in more of a system […]

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 […]

Off the Cuff

I’ve never understood Halloween. People use it as an excuse to dress strangely. Anything goes. Why just on one day? Why not any other day, if that’s how you want to dress? Today we went to the Art Center to enter a painting in an upcoming exhibit. Usually, I have very little interest in the […]

Stormy Day

The first storm of the season is usually the one remembered the easiest. How true for our first storm of the “winter” that arrived on Oct 22. It was such a beautiful morning as the big clouds in the south were confronted with even bigger darker clouds from the north. I was busily shooting pictures […]

This is the time

OK, Read this: On ‘Personal Freedom vs. Authority, the Struggle of Our Time and Computers are the New Drug’. 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 […]
