    Humor: A Long Day

    After a long day of hiking in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, I was exhausted, hungry, and still several miles away from my vehicle parked at the trailhead. So, I decided to call a cab for a ride back. Fifteen minutes later, this vintage 1920’s Cadillac taxi arrived – with no driver. Unfortunately, the keys were neither in the ignition nor tucked under the visor…alas.

    Stepping Back

    It’s like I’m outside at a circus, looking through a dirty glass window, watching all the kids having fun inside…

    Climbing tall ladders to reach high wires. Pulling a lion’s tail. Stepping on the oversized shoes of clowns.

    In time, I turned back to pass between bended fence posts and begin my journey home – 10,000 steps.

    Poem for a Friend

    Happy Birthday Carla Milho 🥳🎂🎁

    A lovely lady from Lisbon, Portugal, Carla is a wonderful writer and a dear friend. Please visit her site to wish her a Happy Birthday 👋🏻

    The time has come to celebrate
    Share gifts and cake and love
    Wishing all the best for Carla
    With blessings from above

    At forty-six and in your stride
    The world at your command
    The time is now, to seize the day
    Pursue your dreams as planned

    So eat your cake, and smile and laugh
    This day belongs to you
    And share good times with all your friends
    Some old, and some brand new

    Poem in Response

    Carla is often a source of inspiration for me, to which, having read her writing yesterday entitled, “Ballerina“, I offer this poem in response…

    So beautiful your words
    As the heart from which they flow
    Your precious spirit true
    Dancing eyes of green aglow

    Desert Landscape

    Wishing to locate a source of water, it became apparent to the weary desert traveller, when, upon seeing an unexplainable series of flat screen monitors so far from civilization, that he must be experiencing a mirage.

    Look no further, though, to discover a plentiful resource of refreshing products featuring my digital artwork, available in these shops:
