...and they lived happily ever after. Smith & Lady: poets, artists, photographers & adventurers.
Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )
 
   
 
 

Captain Quark

Thought I’d soften my external image a bit to lure our reluctant spring forth more quickly, so bought four used t-shirts at the thrift shop for $1 each.

The first three definitely fit the agenda – colorful, gentle, positive . . . the 4th took another tack.




Here’s a little something from the quantum menu.

Captain Quark

Quarks come in six types, or flavors:
top, bottom, up, down, charm and strange.

Protons are made of two up quarks
and one down quark.

Neutrons are composed of
two down quarks and one up quark.

I myself am comprised mainly of strange quarks,
leaving me somewhat quirky.

And lastly, recorded a new song yesterday – Peter Ball’s music, mix and recording, my lyrics and vocals. An odd, off number vocally and lyrically, but interesting musically. Going to have to fire the vocalist, maybe have a talk with the lyricist. Click here to hear Ablution’s Way

Ablution’s Way

As I rise in morning wake
if Allah wills a toke I’ll take
morning buzz because I can
in my daily measure of man
as I sit and seek which street to sweep
for my soul’s clean to keep
all to rise above small stuff
for sometimes kind is just enough

Cuz where you go is up to you
go due your done and fun your do
go do your do and fun your fun
then do the new dance day of sun

Hello day let’s walk this way:
compassion, listen, patience, play
and if grass goes and I can’t toke
at least then I’ll be in on the joke
so buzz buzz be and coffee be
bringeth forth my morning bee
I’ll buzz here and write words there
and take fotos of everywhere

Cuz where you glow is up to you
go due your done and fun your do
go do your do and fun your fun
then do the new day dance of sun

I’ll scout about and sniff and wheeze
and report back if you please
just so you know there’s some odd
hole down the road to soothe your whole
cuz where you glow is up to you
go due your done and fun your do
go do your do and fun your fun
in this new day dance of sun
