Sorry, the Blue-footed Booby, The Galápagos Islands, Ecuador. Nice bit of misdirection, I thought…
“In his face there came to be a brooding peace that is seen most often in the faces of the very sorrowful or the very wise. But still he wandered through the streets of the town, always silent and alone.” ― Carson McCullers, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter
O brothers mine, take care! Take care! The great white witch rides out to-night. Trust not your prowess nor your strength, Your only safety lies in flight; For in her glance there is a snare, And in her smile there is a blight. The great white witch you have not seen? Then, younger brothers mine, […]
Nathalie is thinking to herself that this party might not be a total waste of time, after all. She’s just spotted the dashing Jonathan at the other side of the room, but he’s being cornered by some old biddy, who will have her say to him, no matter what. You know the type! She looks […]
I do not smile all the time! I have a choice. I could scream with rage at the injustice of some of the blows that life has dealt me (and I’ve lent a hand), but what would it change? Not one little bit! On the other hand, I could (and I do) look for the […]
Him: “Darling, you remind me of a pearl!” Her: “Awww, thank you, sweetheart!” Him: “Do you know how a pearl is formed, dearest?” Her: “No snuckums.” Him: “Through CONSTANT IRRITATION!” *And that’s when the trouble started…*
I know exactly on which day ‘forever’ falls. How do I know that? Let me tell you the story. I was in love with a woman, whom I thought was my twin soul. When I was with her, I could have sworn that she thought the same, silly me. Well, maybe she did but then, […]
Oops! I think I did a boobooh…
Whatever you do, don’t step on them! From Put a Smile on My Face
Been there, done that! Translation: “The things you do when you’re in love… Dear God!”
I’m gob-smacked! I’ve done it now. I’ve Burcked myself. I gaze in impotence at the sight of the ineptitude before me. This pitiful drivel down lanes of dreary drudgery, Would perhaps look good in kindergarten, but surely not up here! I’m stumped, I tell you, at my wit’s end. They’ve left me all […]
I would like to have a little experiment, and I invite anyone to join me. Think of an instance in your life, where you’re sure that, what you experienced then was love and hold on to that feeling. Imagine a little box. Put that feeling in the little box and wrap it up in beautiful […]
I was going for a walk, the other night, by myself. When I passed in front of a restaurant, I glanced an elderly couple and my intuition told me to stop right there and observe. Experience has taught me to always obey, when my little voice tells me something like this. Try and picture the […]
That got your attention, didn’t it!?
A full Moon tearing at my innards. Mad wolves howling in my brain. This ebb and flow of change…? Dizzy, I wonder where is North? Tidal waves of ferocious hope crash against my fragile sanity. A plethora of new prospects spreads like rampant wildfire. Drawn and quartered by indecision: a collision of conflicting needs, disintegrating and […]
Yup, found it!
I’m translating this from a post in Dutch on FB – http://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?fbid=142608759209659&set=a.126167937520408.23311.100003816082021&type=1&theater: They want to put even more gross pictures on packets of cigarettes!!!! Why not pictures of starving children on McDonald’s packaging???? Why no pictures of tortured animals on cosmetics???? Why no pictures on bottles of beer of accident fatalities, killed by drivers under […]
Translation: “Cheer up, Bud. Anybody can make a mistake!”
From “funny jokes & pics “ A farmer brought a Rooster home. As soon as the rooster entered the farm, he started screwing all the 200 hens. The farmer is impressed. At lunch, Rooster screws all the 200 hens again. The farmer is becoming uncomfortable and worried now. … … The next day, he […]
Well, it is my Trademark…
Shame on them!
Its funny sometimes, how the little things matter, how we listen to gossip, and mindless chatter Its funny sometimes, how we stress for no reason, we feel down on a sunday, or we change with each season Its funny sometimes, how we can feel so alone, wanting someone to visit, wanting someone to phone Its […]
Now the day is done, Now the shepherd sun Drives his white flocks from the sky; Now the flowers rest On their mother’s breast, Hushed by her low lullaby. Now the glowworms glance, Now the fireflies dance, Under fern-boughs green and high; And the western breeze To the forest trees Chants a tuneful lullaby. Now […]

Outdated, discarded, once as orange as a pumpkin, now more a cantaloupe—speckled one, at that. Wind battered and dust rusted, once showroom shiny, now no one’s dream. But I found you—you with your boy toy grill, a faded smile in the…
One of my favs!
Man, born of stars: his own galaxy. Essence of four birthed by the Moon. Three times seven reflecting the Matrix. That illusive mirror was always within. Breathe sunlight for your progeny is infinity. Sirius-ly! The Helix is everywhere.
Beautiful animal in a beautiful setting.
That put a smile on my face…
What a horrible affliction!
I want to state for the record that this is NOT a picture of me or my Gran!
