I have a student who took these two shots... these are from her show.
They look much better in person. I don't do them justice.
I wish that you could see them... she has such a wonderful eye and point of view.
She is only 15 years old. Amazing young woman.
This is the view I had from the room where my oldest was born. What a nice place to enter the world.
It reminds me of Riverworld by the late Phillip Jose Farmer.
It is about a world created with the purpose of testing the morals of human society. It is populated with historical figures, including Alice... of Alice in Wonderland. (Yes there was a real Alice who was tutored by Lewis Carroll. The Alice stories concocted for her amusement.) Sir Richard Burton, Alice Hargreaves, Samuel Clemens, King John of England, Tom Mix, Mozart, Jack London, Lothar von Richthofen and Hermann Göring and others.
These people awake, naked, hairless with a tube tied to one wrist containing what they need for immediate survival in a strange new world that seems to be only the banks of a long, long river. You can die in Riverworld, but will be resurrected in your original awakening point to begin anew. People meet, bonds are formed, groups gather. Some quest for the why. Others for explanation... ie; religion. Naturally wars begin... people are after all, only people.
Do they pass the moral test? How do they change and what lessons are learned? Interesting stuffs. Some of the books are better than others. What I enjoyed most about them is the history and insights to possible personailities of historical beings otherwise unknown to me.

Mickey Mouse on a motorcycle...
I had to photograph him sitting there straddling that headlight. If you enlarge it... you will see a pony tail hanging from that right handlebar... the driver's right, not yours. That's the hair that used to be on this fellow below.
We had a very long conversation in this parking lot. His hair? Cut off so that he could qualify for his job as a carney at the fair across the river. Now I ask you... since when do carneys have a dress code?
Lovely man. Recently surprised by divorce... the money he spent on his bike was all he left marriage with... and soon after put a huge dent into the tank with his head... leaving him in a brain trauma sitation. Four years later he is still trying to piece together what caused his crash. Yet his damaged head can recall all sorts of Disney memorabilia. The brain is strange creature.
Sman again... my fish-man hero.
Here because my freezer died. Heck, my whole refridgerator bit the big one! My fish supply with it... (large sobbing sound here).
Sman to the rescue... with more steelhead fillets. I am smiling once more. Fat and happy full of fish.
So back to school in the morning. I bought stuff for my lunch. Often the PTO comes in to feed us our first of the year meal. But I hate to count on that and be hungry... then end up settling for food that isn't good for me because it is available. The fridge there works.
It will be safe if the PTO comes through again.
Time for bed. I can't belive that this day is here yet. Trying to wrap my head around it with little affect. I wonder if I will be able to sleep?
Had a meeting with StbX to hammer out final issues so that I can get the damn papers filed before my time on them runs out and I lose my hundreds... divorce is expensive. It's my "treat". I do that tomorrow too... because I am not giving up any of my weekend for anything.
Cross your fingers for me and wish me luck. Here we go....
