  • one hand clapping

    polymiasma – foto by Smith According to Quantum Mechanics, we cannot observe Reality without altering it. Evidently when no one is looking, Reality is simultaneously all things and all possibilities at all times. It is only when we interface with Reality–by looking, smelling, touching, tasting, testing, thinking, poking, probing, asking, measuring, mapping–that it collapses from […]

  • s and m (sick and macho)

  • the paintings and the waitress

    jukebox Sunday night – foto by Smith You never know when or where you’ll have a random unexpected art conversation with a stranger. My in-laws took us out to dinner to celebrate my father-in-law’s and brother-in-law’s birthdays. As we sat down in the Great Lakes Grille and Flying Burrito Cantina I noticed back in the […]

  • feline fellatio

    lap cat – foto by Smith I was watching our calico-tinged tiger cat Mandy on the floor cleaning herself licking licking licking her fur and I told Lady “You know, I could gather up all her shed cat fur that’s blowing across the floor and glue it to my penis and then she’d lick my […]
