16-04-08 WPC – Future

There is no present or future; only the past, happening over and over again now.”

Eugene O’Neill

The Challenge this week is “Future”.

By the time you see this it will be my past…

Looking out over the Indian Point Marshes towards Blackfish Creek, low tide 2/29/16. (My apologies, I have a failing nuclear power plant on the brain. This is the Indian Neck Marshes not Indian Point…oops – edit 4/2/16 @ 6:23 pm)

16-03-25 Weekly Photo Challenge Half Light

In memory of my uncle, Edward Devine Johnson (1926-2016)

There’s a certain Slant of light,
Winter Afternoons –
That oppresses, like the Heft
Of Cathedral Tunes –

Heavenly Hurt, it gives us –
We can find no scar,
But internal difference –
Where the Meanings, are –

None may teach it – Any –
‘Tis the seal Despair –
An imperial affliction
Sent us of the Air –

When it comes, the Landscape listens –
Shadows – hold their breath –
When it goes, ’tis like the Distance
On the look of Death –

Emily Dickinson

16-03-16 Ailsa’s Travel Theme – Square

“It is the vice of a vulgar mind to be thrilled by bigness, to think that a thousand square miles are a thousand times more wonderful than one square mile, and that a million square miles are almost the same as heaven.”

E.M. Forster

I replaced my 2 year old color Squares this week.

16-03-15 The Ides Of March

CAESAR
Who is it in the press that calls on me?
I hear a tongue, shriller than all the music,
Cry ‘Caesar!’ Speak; Caesar is turn’d to hear.
Soothsayer
Beware the ides of March.
CAESAR
What man is that?
BRUTUS
A soothsayer bids you beware the ides of March.
CAESAR
Set him before me; let me see his face.
CASSIUS
Fellow, come from the throng; look upon Caesar.
CAESAR
What say’st thou to me now? speak once again.
Soothsayer
Beware the ides of March.
CAESAR
He is a dreamer; let us leave him: pass.

A perfect sky for this day…
