In the spirit of rememberance…

Ghosts of holidays past…

Haunt my waist line…

The trick of the treat…

Plays out too sweet…

When the scale…

Groans beneath my feet…

Happy Halloween…

….

Hmmmmmm…. mind if I have a bite more to eat?

.

Stay safe… and save me some chocolate!

Warm milk…

the soothing flicker of fire…

a collision of vision…

and a liquid flame…

rises higher…

Consuming dreams…

like a confused funeral pyre…

When you hit the wall of reality…
The concussion leaves a strange imprint…

Multi-tasking is a myth…
When the world throws a rainstorm at you, sometimes you just have to take cover…
And let the drops land where they may…

Why can’t I get everything done?
My artwork, my writing, my laundry, my acting, my teaching, my parenting, my homeschooling, eating, sleeping, breathing, this blog….
Every thing I NEED to get done…
Is an excuse for the OTHER thing I didn’t get done…

I feel like I’ve been trying to juggle raindrops…
Every little thing thrown my way, I’ve tried to catch and do something with…
I try to……………
Learn something…
Control something…
Help something…
Accomplish something…
Document something…
Play with something…
Notice something…
Remember something…
Acknowledge something…
Realize something…
Judge something…
Love something…

And most of all… Do SOMETHING that makes it appear that I know what I’m doing…

What a perfect path for failure…… No one can juggle that many raindrops…

And if you try too hard… in the end all you get is wet… and too tired and distracted to see the rainbow…

I’m ready to get wet…
Ready to enjoy the rainbow…
So, go on world… keep dropping those raindrops…
My sun’s coming out either way….

They always say, “Ask your kid. They know more about this computer stuff than you old geezers.”…
I have found that that is not always true… after all they have to learn it first some place…
If age has taught me anything about “software”…
It’s that most of my problems can be smoothed over by dark chocolate and a bit of well aged Scotch…
And hardware problems are well beyond my reach when I grab for the sledge hammer…
So, I accept that at some point my children will surpass me when it comes to technology…
But knowledge is not the same as wisdom…
and I have plenty of one and just enough of the other…

I am Picasso’s muse.
It’s not that I inspired him, nor was I his model. I never even met him…
But when I look in the mirror, I say to myself, “I am what Picasso made.”
I am playful, fractured, blue…
and then…
I reconsider…
Maybe I am more like Miró… or Matisse…
I muse on this a little more as I look at the lines of my face…
I know that no one could have created a visage such as mine…
Without a great deal of artistic “taste”…
and I still think Picasso would have been amused….
by the lines of my face…

A bit of improv writing… nonsense at its best… and worst…

The soft mist rolled off into the darkness…

Leaving a trail of tiny dew drops…

A flower, shaded and closed…

Took a breath…

And opened…

Bending to the morning sun…

Unfurling color to invite the eye…

And tease the soul with its transient glory…

October’s project is one of opportunity…
When I have the opportunity… I will express a bit of nonsense… and post it here…
no pressure… no pain… no puns…

Okay… there may be a few puns… I’m only human…

If only chocolate bunnies bred as fast as the furry ones….

.

Little Thumper’s tickling my nose…. ACHOOOOOOoooo!

Oh… yeah… calling rabbits “mutant squirrels” is an inside joke that comes from my crazy fun family…
and yes, we call squirrels “mutant bunnies”…. and you should here us giggling at the zoo or state fair…
no animal is safe… everything is mutant…

A very belated “Seriously Silly Sunday” post for my September project… Sept. 28th to be exact.
