Our world

What is our world coming to.
We cry and laugh
we work and rest
but do we stop to reflect
on this condition that
afflicts our modern society.
Wish I could talk more about
this subject, but today if you
write your beliefs it will come
back & bite you.
One has to agree with modern
societies or hibernate like bears
who have found a peaceful medium
and adhere to it, but not the humans,
one poet used to say:
"The person who gets up first is the
one to make the rules of the days...".

It's spring

Hello everyone yesterday April 16, 2018 was
a weird spring day.

For once our meteorologist kept their words,
ice, ice pellets, cold, wind, slush, rain,
freezing rain all in the space of 24 hours...
and that's our spring of 2018.

A long time...




It's been a long time that I did not
post anything new.  First of all I'm
a person who enjoys exploring and
trying new ideas, sites, processes,
I love to experiment with photos
and as such I'm always on the lookout
for new textures, new colors, new
actions.  So hope you got where I'm
arriving... I downloaded a program
believing it was from a safe site and
did I get the surprise of my life...
My computer was almost smoking
by itself.  It would open, close,
go dark, go slow, go so fast that one
could only stare at it and before one
realizes what's the problem it just
dies on you.
Now what?
how could it happen?
How come my anti virus did not pick it up?
How come it was listed as a safe sites
and then kaboommmm it killed my computer.
Tried for a few hours to see what I could do,
to no avail, it was completely and surely dead.
I'm no expert, so still panicking called the
Computer Man for a solution...
Oh dear, please bring it in, we will look at it
and then I will tell you the cost to put it back
together.  So ok, how much could it be?
My list of problem was half a mile long.
1) it needed to be reformatted.
2) I needed a list of programs that I had on my "box"
3) did I want the latest version of this or that program
4) did I want the latest version of the operating system.
5) did I save all my materials on the hard disk or another place.
also...
it looked like my video card was shot,
my cd player was shot,
my sound system shot,
my mother board could be shot

I started to turn white at all this mambo jumbo,
I said "is there anything worth saving on this darn box".
my computer man said: "Lady buy a new one and bring it
to me so that I can make it to your specifications..."
So until I find a computer that pleases me, I have to
contend myself with my old and reliable 10 year old portable.
Hopefully that will teach me to not be to adventurous and
don't believe when they say "Download from this safe site"...

So hopefully I'll get all my material back and be more active.

Do not stop time...

Tic Tac Tic Tac says my grandfather clock
do not laugh I still have a clock that looks
older than I am...
Sitting in a corner counting the time
ticking away, never tiring or complaining.
From it's position he says hello and goodbyes
but most of the time no one pays attention.
I'm the only one who still look at it
believing that he realizes that if not for me
it would have been disposed off a long time ago.
It's his duty to keep me company when I'm
lonely and sad.  He's happy to see me happy
when I count the tic tacs in anxiety for
special events. He quiets down, feeling my
sorrow or my strange moods.
At times I let myself to sleep with it's
murmurs and wake up joyful enough to
blow the clock a great happy kiss.
That's what love of old object is all about,
since I am part of the older generation
who does not want time to stop....

Love

No paper needed
to write about love,
paper can be washed out.
Even love etched on stones
won't last, since stones
can be broken.
Do etch love in our hearts,
where no one can touch it or
erase it, it will remain forever
there to be part of us.
