Camera 5 (April 22, 2010)

Follow the road to the Y and then keep going

Some wondering may be required

Handful of cliches concerning the beaten path

I'm not sure that the movement is conveying like curtains or even chickens I've heard of in at least one case

When it is Thursday in Texas it is usually Thursday here

The gray area is where it gets interesting and yet barely matters

That's been the question all day

Camera 10 (April 21, 2010)

It's raining here.

The off in "on and off"


And then distracted from intention.

There is something new.

This is like everything.

This is like keeps it light.

Camera 10 (April 18, 2010)

I wish you could see the spinning
I'll find something better when I have time

Cleaning up pits
Over-accomodating, rationalizing, and appeasement
Against charity, neighborly, and The Zone
This morning in Baltimore.

Try to get your head around it while the stereo says the strobe lights and the disco will take us home

Six corners of my mind for five states and the District of Columbia

Camera 14 (April 15, 2010)

I could have had my eyes on you late last night
While windows were breaking under my windows.

Coolers of ice emptied over the pavement.
Five coolers is some kinda horrible party.

Sometimes when I say, “I don’t understand why _____,”
I’ve offered my daughter a shoulder
And been pulled inside the cone of shared ignorance.

Sometimes I’m just lying.

There might be 32 teeth in every mouth you meet
And that’s just the people.

Words I've Added to Spellcheck


I was spell-checking a document and my computer frowned upon "McRib"... and figured it was time to give my computer a learning. Which led me to wonder if I could pull the history of words I've added. It wasn't easy, but do-able. Gives an odd look inside me? Inside my life?

Justin asked how I got this list... here you go...

In MS Word2003 (who know what the new one does)...
Tools > Options > Spelling & Grammar > Custom Dictionaries > Modify ...

That pops up a list. But unfortunately you can't cut and paste from it, so I had to open a notepad next to it and manually transcribe. I ignored all the "person names" that have been added over the years (like "Sirois") in my list.

This Life It Is So Awesome (You May Not Be Aware of What You Are Missing) {Nostalgia Shoutout to One of the Ones I Love}

Camera 18 (April 13, 2010)

This isn't the best color to pile on. A chest cold can be behind shortness of breath. If I turn back the clock to her thought, "It isn't an escape fantasy anymore if you've bought a ticket," is that wheelhouse or breaking the bone to break it? It was the job of some officials to note the recession isn't over. Meanwhile, other officials went out to lunch for a coworker's birthday. A food challenge is a game show concept. I don't wholly subscribe to connections between collecting and death. I believe in taxes. Sometimes you can't just sleep it off.

I saw District 9 and I really liked it. You should check it out.

Camera 17 (April 9, 2010)

I thought you'd save me,
I thought I hated you,
This isn't my home,

but you didn't.
but you're beautiful.
but I'm coming back.

We'll Make It Talking

call it delight if you call it anything. Set a dog on your freedoms
when I bring up things like this, it's not for my health
she is next to cleanliness, at least more than I can say
another day, another chance to fall on the stairs
they call it boating for a reason
but you can't treat him like a piece of common trash. You have to respect
an apple a day, a sun, a moon, a sister, and a brother
keeps falling every which way, and before you know it, you are found with
barely a screatch or excuse. A day like Thursday only comes once a week
let your anger ring in your inner ear and the marketplace
First Noby Noby Boy vs. Writing experiment... Written on my phone, in the app, in one sitting last night. Photo's taken with the self-same app this morning right after breakfast.

I don't think it is all that successful, but starts sketching out possibilities and opens a hundred flowers in my head. (And was fun.)
