Drunken Sailor

Delaware River, Philadelphia, PA 07-07-07

I wrote the following rhyme in response to a rhyme written by David McMahon. He has a little feature he calls "Verse and Worse" where it has become commonplace to comment in rhyme. He also has lots of hints and suggestions on photography, writing and looking at the world in new ways.

I went and took
a nice long look
and what did I see
when I glanced at the sea?
In a sinking boat,
barely afloat,
a scurvy sailor
who was more of a bailer.

Goldennib's Garden

I want a new job, but I want a completely different one. At first I thought I would just go to a different company, but there's no point in that. Most of my current job is ok: good pay, close to home, I know the work, I like the people and I have some clout after eleven years. I took the time to update my resume'. I got my professional certification. But, I want something totally different. I want to follow my heart's desire.

Hop, Skip and Jump

I saw the sunrise at the beach for the first day of summer Saturday morning.

I harvested rosemary and lavender on the night of the Honey/Strawberry Moon last Wednesday, hanging the stems to dry on the front porch. I put up a pot of strawberry schnapps, too. It will be ready for bottling at the beginning of October.

My small wild flower garden has a few blooms. My miniature hydrangeas are heavy with blossoms and the elephant ears have a long stalk edge with white bells.

Not Dead Yet

I am still alive. This year has begun as a very powerful time for change, lots and lots of change. I just wanted to make a quick note that all is well, I am flourishing and I WILL be visiting soon.
