Daily Prompt: Keep Out For Now


Who is the one person you hope isn’t reading your blog? Why?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us OUTSIDE.

There really isn’t anyone I don’t want to be here. I hope everyone comes here, lol. If I write in the blogosphere, its open season, that’s the way I look at it. If you really want to stay private, don’t own a computer.


When I walk Molly I sometimes snap random photos.

This wall is in the parking lot of a community shelter, it makes quite the statement.


These are not exciting, but they did make me think. The window with the bars is someone’s home, I was at street level looking down. Not really the view most of us dream about when we are having our coffee Sunday morning.



Daily Prompt: A Mystery Girl


Tell us something most people probably don’t know about you.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us MYSTERIOUS.

I’ve had a keen interest in Egyptology since I was a little kid,  maybe it comes from watching one too many Abbott and Costello movies, lol. I loved the idea of treasure hunting and uncovering lost civilizations.


I’m also a big fan of Vincent Price. Many of his films were so cheesy, but we still love them. And yes, I loved watching them when I was a kid, obviously I had a varied childhood. 🙂


What’s not to love, Kermit the frog and the master of horror. The day Kermit lost his dad was the saddest day ever.

I love to garden, even though I can’t grow house plants worth a crap, lol.


Dead is dead, what can I say.

There we go, just a sample of the mystery girl!








Daily Prompt: The Artist’s Eye


Is there a painting or sculpture you’re drawn to? What does it say to you? Describe the experience. (Or, if art doesn’t speak to you, tell us why. Photographers, artists, poets: show us ART.

This is one of my all time favorite pieces, it’s called ” Catastrophe”, by George Rammell.


This piece just screams togetherness in the most bizarre way. It was created in 1976, his first large sculptural project after graduating from art school.

What makes this even sweeter is that George Rammell is a BC artist, I had the good fortune to take a weekend, rock carving workshop with him back in the eighties.

His work continues to inspire and intrigue me.



Amazing Discovery’s From The Boob Tube


Television is polluted with so much trash, that we sometimes forget there is content on the box worth a second look.

The cable in our home was given the heave-ho quite some time ago. My husband and I both have computers, and of course there is Netflix, lol. I’m laughing because it is not the most up to date form of entertainment, but it is only $7.99… what can I say, we are cheap and like it this way.

Earlier this week I was cruising along, in my Netflix-potato mode, and thought I’d give ” Documentaries” another try. I’ve noticed one called Searching For Sugar Man, after all, how bad could it be? Silly pessimistic girl that I am on occasion. Little did I know that I would find an incredible story.

YouTube saved the day, because I found one of his albums…. for FREE…oops, maybe I’m not supposed to advertise that, ah well.

What an amazing human being, and the music goes without saying.

Daily Prompt: The Best Mode Of Travel


You’re going on a cross-country trip. Airplane, train, bus, or car? (Or something else entirely — bike? Hot air balloon?)

Photographers, artists, poets: show us TRAVEL.

I love traveling by car, because that means I can stop wherever and whenever  I want, and since I’m a bit of a control freak it works for me.  If I didn’t travel by car I wouldn’t have seen this fine work of art.

Or I wouldn’t have been able to converse with time gone by.

The freedom it gives me to go down small back roads and visit monster size animals just can’t be beat.

Taking the train across the country some day would be awesome, but think I’d miss being able to do the stop and go thing. Who knows, maybe I’d be involved in a great mystery and that would make it all worth while.



Daily Prompt: Take Care


When you’re unwell, do you allow others to take care of you, or do you prefer to soldier on alone? What does it take for you to ask for help?

Being sick is something I’m not accustomed to, it rarely happens, and when it does I prefer to crawl away and hide. I’d have to be in really rough shape to ask for help. Living with a very patient man makes it easy though, he’s always there regardless. :0)

Some of us are just more stubborn I think, for me it probably has something to do with the pioneer blood that runs through my veins. That sounds really good anyways.

Imagine yourself having a cold three hundred years ago. Instead of extra soft tissue to wipe your nose, you would have sandpaper like fabric, that must have felt good… Oh, and lets not forget the chamber pot under the bed full of puke and other wonderful morsels. It would have been hard to crawl away and soldier on, without calling attention to ones self.

Almost makes me want to stock pile soft puff tissue and air fresheners.

Daily Prompt: The Normal Side Of Life


Is being “normal” — whatever that means to you — a good thing, or a bad thing? Neither?

The word normal is highly over rated, and misused. People use it when they want to fit in, or don’t want to seem unusual.

Being different is a gift that we should all embrace. Take for instance, the fact that I drink coffee in the shower, with a ceramic cup, now that’s really living on the edge, and NOT BEING NORMAL.

I cringe at the thought of being like everyone else, gross. Being a little drone in the human experiment never appealed to me, and I’m not about to change any time soon. People are obsessed with being normal. Take for instance the social media giant, fakebook, you know who you are. Your not with the in crowd until you have a fakebook page, and all the fun, useless apps that go with it. Social media can be a good thing, until it becomes so polluted we are wading through what Jane had for breakfast and how many times she went to the bathroom.

The obsession with normal causes people to be less tolerant of each other, and that is not a good thing. Diversity should be embarrassed, and not looked upon as though the person has lost contact with earth.


You just need to be yourself, whatever that may look like.
