Life: From A to Z At the risk of sounding cliché, the letter “D” made me think of “dancing to the beat of your own drum.” I’ve noticed that my thoughts, views, and ideas about […]
Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain. JOSEPH CAMPBELL I thought about JOY all day, ever since I saw the prompt for RDP Saturday. I had visions […]
I have a collection, Of masks that I wear. Some say “I’m OK,” Others show that I care. There’s a smart looking one, That I wear when I work, And one that looks angry, When […]
I’m back for Day 3 of my “Write Something New Every Day” series. No poem tonight. I thought I would spend a little more time on imagery instead. I went a little crazy with color […]
If feels like the dead of winter, The leaves, they have lost their hues. Birds are refusing to sing, and… The sun has a case of the blues. The streets, once bustling with magic, Cry […]
NO MATTER WHAT Hmmm… well isn’t that a wee bit grandiloquent?! Between the Word of the Day, grandiloquent, and the weekend writing prompt, peristeronic, I’m beginning to think that I need to keep a thesaurus […]
Celestial sphere, Eternal light in the dark, Eyes fixed upon you. Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge: Eye & Light
I’m happy to report that my inner child is still ageless. Well, I had a little fun today, and it made me feel like a kid again! I had some big ideas for art projects […]
Hollywood has unfortunately become a memory. It’s nothing but a sign on the side of a hill. —Mickey Rooney I haven’t taken my walk yet but I’ll be on my way shortly! I’m still testing […]
I watched little leaves, Drifting in the wind.Spinning, twirling, floating.Landing ever so softly,On the ground beneath my feet. On the branch above,One was still hanging on.Quivering in the breeze. And I wondered…Was it shaking from fear,Afraid […]
City life is millions of people being lonesome together.—Henry David Thoreau I took some additional photographs of the sunset a few nights ago (pictured in Mesmerized) and I liked this one because of all the […]
They’re coming for us! Swords blazing bright, fight or flight… Get out while you can! It kind of ruins the mood when I try to explain everything, but this Image and Haiku are just too […]
Butterfly kisses, Sweet memories, pure and chaste, Taste of innocence. Today’s Everything Red is another recycling project; a collage of red roses with a guiltless white. It stands out like a sore thumb… the white […]
Let the fire inside you burn.
I’m having a fun time with this new series. The possibilities are endless, and I think of new things every day. I’ve recycled some older pieces for today’s Everything Red. The red abstract is from many moons ago, and the shadowy aesthete is my youngest son—posing in a photo I took over a decade ago, at an art museum.
Sometimes a dramatic rescue is a simple act of showing up. This piece is all about Gil. I think of him when I see red, especially if it’s an emergency vehicle. He’s the kind of […]

What a wonderful day it is!
First things first. I got my hands on some new filters for Photoshop (thanks to a fellow blogger). Now that my options have increased… so have my ideas. This is going to be a great week!

Something is Stirring
I thought I would use this particular Garden Art piece to do a little journaling and (publicly) admit something. I’ve been wanting to share this for awhile now, but I didn’t want it to be another one of “those things” that I bring up and start… and then never finish.
First of all, I want to share how excited I am to be finishing up the Alphabet Game. This is the FIRST time I’ve started a series on my blog—and actually stuck with it until […]
