...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 )



I’m gonna gold pan my reality
’til everything I see’s in happy relation
the stuff inside
and out

A gold pan that’s my mind, or window
or mirror… all… embroidery…
a metaphor that’s more,
a handle
on the big It

I’ll hold it tenderly, that gold pan
and when I find stuff that’s not so happy,
treat it with compassion, mend it, heal it,
work it o’er into the rest like a loam
that cures the culture

I can rest; I can rest at times
and I can work; there’s much work
to be done ratcheting pieces
into place

When I’m tired I’ll put myself
into the dish, lay in the hammock,
suspend myself in web of life and Spirit
natural machinery passing its energy through me
kindling the best regenerative capacity
I have

~ Lady
