Goddess v Medusa

As an adolescent I remembered watching Jason and the Argonauts as well as other movies based on Greek mythology. I didn't really think about the images of women and men.

Surf

Surfers paddle out over the receding waves Hold back for that perfect one Rolling waves race each other Piggyback and l eap frog Curl over the surfboard Tease and taunt The board a seesaw Surfing skills put through the mill Who will win the battle - The surfer or the wave?

Happy Birthday Ana Maria

The gatekeeper brands with fluorescent ink Birthday tables adorned with blue and white stripes Trios of balloons announce the celebrants name Buffet of games catch the eyes of the children With blinking lights and a multitude of sounds Giggling children racing from one open game to another With...

Hidden from View Below

Sailing across the oceans of clouds Layered above and below the plane Peaking waves dot the horizon Smoothing out as the plane passes over the mist Sun splashes hues over the clouds Occasional gaps from thinning mists Allow glimpses of mountain peaks Lights blinking on to dot the landscape First one...

Do You Facebook?

Months ago I was trying to find a venue for my two new businesses. Ways to get the word out and start making money. My son told me about Facebook and Myspace. I decided to check out the websites and see what happens. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine what would happen to me! I played around... Sign in to see full entry.
