Pressed / shed

"On a wall shadowed by lights from the distance
is the screen. Icons come to it dressed in capes..."

From "The Screen of Distance" by Barbara Guest


Class is wrapped for the semester! After a round of defensive driving tomorrow (to offset that speeding ticket I received while returning from a medieval conference) I will have more time to wander with a camera.

Congratulations on completing another semester!

Thanks so much for "Pressed/shed" and for introducing me to Barbara Guest.

Thought of you this morning while reading this;

"I feel like poets and writers are the monks writing illuminated manuscripts . . . " (Marie Howe)

Irony abounds: of course you'd speed up, coming from a medieval conference, to get back with the times.

Admiration also abounds; this is a lovely shot, reminding me somewhat of my face after a too speedy shave.

That is one of the finest metal sheds I've seen in several years of collecting!

Hey everyone!

am: Thanks so very much, for the comment, the link, and your continued "coming back for more." Yay! for both of us!

Shelly: *snork* And yes, I wonder if the Clyde Police Department and Municipal Court count on a few extra tickets when the TEMA Conference travels to Lubbock...

GrannyJ: High praise, thanks much!
