...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 )

Fifty-third Calypso

We’re heading down to the Watershed Stewardship Center in West Creek Reservation Metropark to eat a sunrise breakfast on top of their grass roof. Looking forward to it even though the sky is rain-clouded because it will still be a great way to start our day.

Lady mentioned it’s been 6 days since I’ve posted my “daily” blog, so here’s my new masterpiece.

Anger Management

Rain and dark and chill in heat.
Cuppa coffee and a toke the coming day to greet.
Rinse gaily, add some salt, and repeat, repeat, repeat.

And a Kurt Vonnegut masterwork from 1963.

Fifty-third Calypso
from “The Books of Bokonon”

Oh, a sleeping drunkard
Up in Central Park,
And a lion hunter
In the jungle dark,
And a Chinese dentist,
And a British queen —
All fit together
In the same machine.
Nice, nice, very nice;
Nice, nice, very nice;
Nice, nice, very nice —
So many different people
In the same device.

– from chapter 2 of Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut, 1963

Don’t spill the Ice-9.
