15-05-19 What’s Going On?

“It (death) doesn’t really bother me except for it’s forever. When I think about forever, I get upset. Like the Land O’Lakes butter has that Indian girl, sitting, holding a box. And it has a picture of her on it, holding a box. With a picture of her on it, holding a box. Have you ever noticed that?”

This is the image that I sent to Leanne Cole for her weekly Monochrome Madness blog. Lots of excellent work. You should check it out.

SET THEORY

In a dark room a candle is lit.

Everything in that room
is at once illuminated on one side
and projects a shadow on the other.

Everything that has light casts a shadow.
Light and shadow go hand in hand.

But if the flame itself has no shadow,
Does the candle’s flame really have light?

15-05-05 Cinco De Mayo

Life has been extremely hectic and busy, so much so that after 3+ years, I decided that the QH was going to take a little break. If I blogged, good. If I couldn’t get to it…well tomorrow is another day. The rest of this week continues hectic, culminating in my picking up Abigail on Friday as she comes home from her first year of college. I plan to sit down with myself this weekend and decide if I go back to a daily schedule, a three day a week schedule, or just let the blog posts fall where they may. I certainly do not intend to retire…

You kind folks will be the 2nd to know!

I was in the East Village on Sunday and came across this wonderful scene.
