Haiku Monday: Homecoming
Flower of the field,
daredevil flying low; crash
Halloweenish in the air lately:
I shot a little video of the changing leaves on my street, set to the music of the most elegant horror movie of all time. (guess) ****only 24 seconds!
You know you're a redneck when.....
You may recall the week I spent posting about the process of making this painting of Flannery O'Connor. You'll be happy to know I managed to eeeek out a 2nd place prize which involves actual money. It was the perfect reward; it left me the "best of show" to aspire to. It was an excellent exhibition 0f 143 pieces whittled down from 600 something. This year I got lucky with a judge that wasn't married to realism. The grand prize winner was way off the reservation. Big paintings are the way to go.
Yet another excellent (and free) internet platform:
Edging into my blogging time is Pinterest. I have always been an image archiver with most of them loaded into a hard drive and retrieved when curating little essays, like, say, on bad easter rabbits. But Pintrest makes it fun to organize content. Here's a screen shot that shows a few of my collections. You can "follow" me there -and anybody else too. Or follow by topic or search imagery. Its great, I love it but it is addictive.
You know I also have a Tumblr. Pillbox Elk. I use it mostly to store GiF's that I like. And movies, like the Luche Libre video featuring Javier Solis singing "Payaso" and an introduction to sacred geometry.
Have you looked at your blog in dynamic views yet? It looks great! I will be making the switch. The sidebar goes away, though, when you do, so I need to figure out some ways to work around that. I've also been trying to use my Google Voice phone more too. The coolest thing it does is when you click on a person on your email list, google calls them, and rings your cell phone when their phone starts ringing. In a very google big brotherish way, it pulls up the person's picture as it appears on your cell phone. Oh yes.
My friend Started a Blog that is about a big public art piece she did. She doesn't know anybody on blogger, and isn't likely to become a frequent blogger, but if you have a moment, would you pop over there and answer one simple question? By participating, you expand the project, keeping it alive and in flux. The address is: http://www.onemillionthoughtsofjoy.blogspot.com/
What's everybody doing to celebrate this gorgeous autumn we are having?
