30 in 30 Day 21 – Lioness

Oil on canvas, 6″ x 6″

Little tired.


The world is too much with us

But still there are things that make it worth while.


This guy does with words what I am trying, always, to do with paint.

I don’t know who he is, but he’s good. Check out his poems. Makes me think about quantum entanglement & all kinds of other things I don’t understand but think about anyway.


Also, please vote on Tuesday if you haven’t already.

Like the cowardly lion closing his eyes tight and chanting, I do believe I do believe I do believe that we can make a difference. Already we have a president capable of complex sentence structure! Magic is real, people. Cast your ballot.

April is National Soft Pretzel Month

But I prefer poetry. Here’s the delightful Sharon Olds reading her “Self Portrait, Rear View.”

Because it is still April

And still National Poetry Month (!) here is the Richard Corey Interactive Adventure, from Llamas.org. What joy awaits you.

April is National Poetry Month

From the Richard Brautigan Bibliography and Archive:


     This poem was found written on a paper bag by Richard Brautigan in a laundromat in San Francisco. The author is unknown. 

By accident, you put
Your money in my
Machine (#4)
By accident, I put
My money in another
Machine (#6)
On purpose, I put
Your clothes in the
Empty machine full
Of water and no

It was lonely.
