A place for pollen

May 12, 2010

It’s been awhile since I have added bits of very ordinary beauty. Found these on my walk tonight with Elke. These are ribbons of pollen, gathered at the edge of a pool in a park. Elke wasn’t too convinced of the beauty in the slime, but I saw it as floating tapestries. I bet she [...]

Finding the right trouble

September 24, 2009

Big dreams last night. In one, I was in a large body of murky water and saw a dark shape below me, which I realized was a dog. Then there were two. And then, there was an entire pack of large, black dogs swimming all about me. Although I am fond of dogs, especially large [...]
