Point. Click. Point. Click.



1.  Must clean camera:  Soon.  It is acting up just enough to put the fear of failure in me.  First Place on the list is to encourage me-own-self to do it before it quits altogether.  My walk this morning included a quick trip to the Summer Bridge, which, of course, is stacked neatly beside the road.  The river is high and roaring swiftly below flood stage.


Water is everywhere.  All the small gullies and ditches run with clear, oxygenated water.



I feel a painting coming on.  I love the abstract nature of the cement shapes.


This morning, as I walked, the air cold, the wind cold, everywhere noise and action of the rains.  We have experienced crazy storms, piles of hail, wind, rain and snow.  Even today you can hear the water soaking into the garden, dripping from the trees.  Clouds are piling up, perhaps more is on the way.

I love it.  These days of being socked-in, have been productive.  Revision, and submitting my work.  Catching up the laundry.  Back to the work.  Cook dinner.  Back to the work.  Back to the work.


At this time of year, the moss is alive with the rains.  It has a short amount of time to do all of its housekeeping, reproducing, and greening.  Then, the sun comes and dries it to a crisp, and it waits patiently for the next wet season.

2.  Stay with the work:  finish.  Revise.  Send out.  Do More.  Finish.  Revise.  Send.  Do More.

Happy Day.

...and another for Beautiful World? YES, to images and text. Good work, girl. May all the publishers take startled breaths when they see your poems and reach for the quill pen to say YES.

My UNIQUELY styled Wallpapers. During some ten years, I have developed an extremely complex and unimitable technique that should carry some interest of anyone pursuing a serious artistic ambition and expertise. And it's quantity as well: by now close to 5 000 wallpapers, all created by me. Why not tune in on my rapidly growing art blog? Its Copyright Anyone, as it SHOULD be for this genre!

And I write poetry in several languages:

SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE

There's much in the world that you can't explain.
It's revealed for you to remember
by the whispering voice of a distant train
or a midnight rain in november.

Horizon within! You can always find
the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
Is Nature naught but extension.

Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
by fear and longing you roam
that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
...on your random journey back home.

Single Swingle

Casualidad sopla la sangre
de alguno señor desconocido
durante los pocos restantes
momentos del resplandor de faroles

que se vislumbran tras el follaje
flameando de las obsesiónes
igual efimero como gotas
del cinzano de la soledad –

En aquel tiempo me levanta
dentro uno incidente avejentado
que en seguida palidece
al camouflaje de abstraccion;

chica, nadie conoce que tus grisos
ojos significan aún; con todo
el sueño que hube evacuado
tu escudriñas nuevamente.

My Spanish poetry!

LE FRUIT DU CIEL

Un orage nocturne illmuna maintenant l'Amazonie, franchis les Andes, envoya des jeux de cartes gigantesques et frappantes en bas à la Pampa –

Puis: petit déjeuner à melon; café fumant !

À la bague du cigare tu lis, étonné: GÉOGRAPHIE.

Poétudes

Das Leben dergleichen Halbfaßung
der Welt wahr immer nicht wahr,
nicht wahr? Die fristlos Entlaßung
am Ende wird kaum wunderbar.

So laßen uns Menschlingen viele
besonders besonnene zum
Zeitweilegem Zeiten als Ziele
des Lebens halbfaßen darum.

We need a new analysis of probability. My hypothesis is that disorder is as constant as energy, since increasing material disorder, entropy, is counterbalanced by increasing structural regularity, symmetry. I tell you the Law of Entropy and the Law of Symmetry, ruling approximatively equal universal validity derive through bifurcation of the still more basic Law of Probability, that is, math, and rather simple math at that. Can you dig this?
