It’s 2016 and I’m – gasp – 54 years old. Driving in the car I hear this song. There are several really nice tunes this year. But Starboy takes the cake for me. Back in the 80s and early 90s I had written a couple of songs that played with these themes. But none of […]Read More Reelin’ in the Years – 2016
I once had a professor who came to Canada from a communist occupied European country. How he got out of there, God only knows. He was a tight-lipped, taciturn fellow and generally hard to talk to. One day I tried to talk to him about where he came from. He admitted the standard of living […]Read More Is North America Really Devoid Of Culture?
I signed up for deviant art many years ago. After retrieving my PW I’m good to go. This time I’m just testing to see if you can hyperlink to images like you can at, say, Flickr.

And managed to get this interesting photo, which I digitally recomposed with Photoshop Elements to give something of The […]Read More let me out!
I recently got a new tablet and haven’t really tried out the camera. Seems to be just adequate but it doesn’t really matter. Was having a serene moment last night with this candle. Now that the nights are getting longer and the days shorter, it’s time to reflect on the cycles of life. The past, […]Read More Burn slowly, the candle of life
After a downtown Mass I spied this prayer card and almost took it. But then I though, no no, that’s just not right. Some sweet soul left it here and it belongs at the foot of the statue where it was placed. So I took this photo, instead. Turned out way nicer than just the card […]Read More At the feet of the Son
