in her glow
we sit pretending
so many things

like we are not old

like we are not imagining
warm alabaster
against our dark skin
fiery silk her hair
between our sure and steady fingers
a scent of jasmine
through the open windows of a moonless night
all infusing
all reviving
her fire our youth

no we are not thinking that at all



So for several years now I have been lucky enough to be following Ron Scubadiver’s Wild Life – a great photo journalist blog

A few days back i came upon the above photo. For some reason it really struck me and i commented that it was inspirational. And then i wrote down the above on the spot. Just a little ruff bit that i kinda like and a good excuse to share Ron’s photo and invite you all to check him out

    In my opinion there is nothing negative to be found in any of your posts.

      it some how seems too little to just say thank you – it is really nice to hear from you another artist saying such things about my work. but what can I say – Thank you Donna J

        You’re welcome, pd. I believe no one ever gets too much sincere positive praise. Supporting other artists I’d also one way I give back for the many gifts live has given me.

        Sheesh, I skid like a Pollyanna, and I’m not really a very positive person. But anyhow . . ..

        As others have commented, I’m very happy to have found your work , which brings me great pleasure on many levels.
