Do you know mushrooms?

I never ever eat a mushroom I am not 100% sure of... and these, that have been popping up in my yard, I am not sure of. I am hoping someone in Blogitland can give me some clues to name these. I posted photos of a mystery mushroom which I thought might be amanita over in Davy's blog,... Sign in to see full entry.

Can this blogger be saved?

My dad told me years ago that when I was a baby, I always woke up crying. A few times, dreaming a joke, I have awakened chortling. I woke up this morning, and my fingers were typing on air... Like a baby babbling, like a chimp muttering ASL signs, my fingers were going through the motions...... Sign in to see full entry.

Movie night

One of the best movies of all time.... I am sitting here watching Benny & Joon. Great cast, lovely character studies, a really entertaining, moving movie... If you have never seen it, you can rent it... If you have, you can always see it again! Has Johnny Depp made any bad movies? I didn't much care... Sign in to see full entry.

So, Naut, did you have tasty fresh lobster on your holiday?

LOBSTERS ON PARADE Across the abyssal plain, in waters weighted with the entire ocean and as utterly black as night can be, lit only by the thrashing sparking flaring of creatures bizarre by any notion of ourselves, the lubberly kind... Across these heavy deeps in measured tread of little feet... Sign in to see full entry.

Herding Cats And Puppy shots

This little border collie pup does not yet believe that it can't be done. In fact, if anyone can do it, he can! Just ask him! Davy fiercely confronts my four grown cats, who sit and stare at his antics, and occasionally swear under their breath at him. He--our Dauntless Davy-- is not discouraged!...

Remembering... with love

It is time... A year ago, my dad went into the hospital for heart surgeries. There were complications, and the day after Father's Day, the life support was shut down, and he was allowed to go. He was 85. For most of the 55 years I knew him, we did not play well together. The decision was my own, to... Sign in to see full entry.

the one about taking a piece of art to the poetic place... The painting was a modern thing with broad swaths of dark reds and falling wings... A figure, losing the heavens... Maybe someone else recalls such a thing by artist and title? Icarus in the Sky Icarus, Icarus, foolish lad! It's the worst... Sign in to see full entry.

Poetry on a classical theme...

some time back I had occasion to research the Gorgon, Medusa--was amazed and inspired by what I found! MEDUSA O maid, you once were lovely, full of grace, and named for Wisdom in eternal female form-- Metis, Maat, Medha the names you bore... But the passing generations, reshaping and restructuring...
