May 8, 2015. Looking south past the Mid-Hudson Bridge from the Walkway Over The Hudson Historic State Park.
Thanks Red Molly…
“…takes a cigarette/puts it in your mouth” – Bowie
nope wrong song…
So you live day to day,
And you dream about tomorrow, oh
And the hours go by like minutes
And the shadows come to stay
So you take a little something
To make them go away
I could have done so many things, baby
If I could only stop my mind
From wonderin’ what I left behind
And from worrying ’bout this wasted time
The challenge is time
Well, an answer, I believe, is found in this snowy portrait…
Words to live by…
“The more ugly, older, more cantankerous, more ill and poorer I become, the more I try to make amends by making my colors more vibrant, more balanced and beaming.”
Vincent Van Gogh
The challenge this Groundhog day is vibrant. Sadly I have searched the archives and do not have a picture of a vibrant groundhog.
I do, however, have a vibrant creature…
I spent the last week as TA for a great class taught by the very talented Winona Barton-Ballentine (check her work out!) called In Design For Photographers at ICP. I worked on a little booklet there which I am somewhat pleased with (I have more to do, but it is heading where I want to go.)
I had hoped to put it onto QH so you could see it. In that cause, I have been attempting to figure out how to embed a PDF into a post so you don’t have to click on a link to see it. I have not yet been able to make that work. I know it is possible in WP.org but I am not sure it is possible in WP.com. So, the indulgence I am begging is twofold.
1: If you are a WP maven can you guide me through how to do this?
2: Will you please click on the link and take a look? (FYI: One page may be NSFW depending on your work environment)

See the fireworks The Quotidian Hudson created by blogging on WordPress.com. Check out their 2015 annual report.
The challenge this week is Eye Spy.
Here are the eyes of Glòria Juan Villegas, a young stand up comic (and acting student) in NYC.
Can look like this…
“They are playing a game. They are playing at not playing a game. If I show them I see they are, I shall break the rules and they will punish me. I must play their game, of not seeing I see the game”
I think now, even Kid Rock would admit he had things backwards.
“I do not believe that artists or actors and people should be out there like voicing their full-blown opinions on politics because, let’s face it, at the end of the day, I’m not that smart of a guy. I play Rock ‘n’ Roll, that’s what I do. Who would you trust to make your decisions, Donald Rumsfeld or the Dixie Chicks?”
Please go see The Unknown Known
I have been listening to The Dixie Chicks a lot these last few days. Those young woman were really good and tight. If they hadn’t been destroyed by the Bush cabal and its followers I think country music would be much better today than it is. The Chicks were hardly the worst casualty of the Bush disaster, that honor is split between the people of Iraq, our troops, and the our economy but they were a casualty none-the-less.
