Commentary

That Was Then, This Is Now.

With apologies to the band Soft Cell, and the writer S. E. Hinton, who ruined reading for roughly half the middle-school aged children in America with her nausea-inducing drivel, but still doesn’t deserve this.

Sometimes I feel I’ve got to run away
I’ve got to get away
From the pain you drive into the heart of me.
The love we share seems to go nowhere

And I’ve lost my light for I toss and turn – I can’t sleep at night.

Once I ran to you
now I’ll run from you

This tainted love you’ve given –
I give you all a boy could give you.
Take my tears and that’s not nearly all – oh
tainted love – tainted love….

Then.

Now.

Photo I Like

A Photo I Like (for no good reason at all, except that I can) #1

I have saved hundreds of photos over the years–thank the sneaky gods for terrabites-wide external hard drives–because there are thousands, actually, even though I do occasionally do some house cleaning.  In these dark and busy days–all sorts of meetings this week, NaNoWriMo sucking time hungrily, and I’ve got a cold that manifests itself worst at night, keeping me awake coughing when I should be sleeping–the time seems right to share some.

In fact, here is one now:

This photo is called “John Brown2”–if he’s the Sheriff, I’m wondering if, every time I plant a seed, he’ll say “kill if before it grows?”  Just a thought.
