“I am surrounded by dead bodies. I sit quietly, watching, for I will kill again. The crushed and twisted remains lie strewn across the tables on either side of me, a testament to my determination. I am without remorse.”
This is my version of, “it was a dark and stormy night.”

Hail! I heard something fall on the roof, then something else and then it thundered down, hail! The boards on the deck are just under six inches across, for reference. I have never before experienced hail of this magnitude, but have driven by banks of it on the side of the road, shortly . . . → Read More: Weather!
Poplar Two. I’ve been playing around with my camera, enjoying patterns and perceptions. Life is all about relativity! This image is part of my Altered States Gallery, which has just been updated.
I don’t think frugal quite covers what Attila and I do with our scant resources. It is not desperation. It is . . . → Read More: Celebration of Gifts
If you insist on looking under rocks, you may find things that you do not want to touch. Recently this happened to me. I interacted with a politician.

Happy Mother’s Day to all Mothers!

After much investigation, I found GGG Grandaunt Bella’s Death Registration record. The record was obscured by a faulty transcription: a misspelling of her surname. She lived to be 88 years old, and spent the last years of her life at the County Gaol. She is listed as a vagrant, although that seems a bit . . . → Read More: Retired to the County Gaol

On the job yesterday, I sat down for 15 minutes, between 8:15 and 5:15. It was a very busy day, and I should have sat out my unpaid lunch hour, and taken my two ten minute breaks, but I didn’t. If I had, the work would not have been completed, . . . → Read More: Bella
The nights are cold, as the temperature listed here, recorded at 8:00 a.m., confirms. The leaves are quickly opening to the world. We are surrounded by a green riot; every shade of imaginable green is displayed as far as the eye can see.
The early morning is cool and crisp. It is the perfect . . . → Read More: Yellow
