Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Shadow Shot Sunday/ Mellow Yellow Monday, May 16-17


This swing is always
Imagination's rocket
To far off places


I don't usually co-mingle my memes, but this one works for both, and I'm feeling pretty much used up today.

That's exactly right for a swing! Even after (way too many) years, I can still re-capture that feeling. Nice shadows too!
