Transcending Utility In Downtown T or C (#376)
Posted by lambskinny in New Mexico, Photography, unique fencing on December 27, 2014
Always something fun at Tin Can Traveler — unique fencing. Check it out.
When does something go beyond its function as a useful item to become something more? An expression of artistic freedom ? Imaginative? Visionary? Fun?
Displayed for you here are a few of the utilitarian forms of fencing I found skirting the yards of some homes here in Truth or Consequences (T or C), New Mexico. Fences that, perhaps, go beyond form and function to be…..something else….something imaginative, something expressive, something more.
Truck fence of old license plates
Sticks and stones…..and wire mesh to hold it together

A Tornado? Here?

Tornado in November?
“ . . . high winds . . . 12:00 . . . headed this way . . . possible tornado . . . till 3:00 . . . some heavy rain . . .”
I stared wide eyed at the park ranger on the beach talking to our neighbor. “Did you get all that?” he asked when he turned my way.
A tornado watch! We were aware that the hurricane season is over at the end of November, but a tornado season? Checking a Florida disaster website, I discovered that there are two tornado seasons in Florida. The summer season ends in September and the Deadly Spring Season (yes, folks, that’s what it’s called) starts in February. Where does that leave us in December?
It leaves us on a tiny scrap of land called Long Key, where one could sprint – if one was capable of sprinting, and there…

Advice From A Mountain
Posted by lambskinny in Awards, Blog, Photography, Uncategorized, Wordpress on December 8, 2013
Advice from a mountain? Yes, and pretty good advice, too.
Savor life’s peak experiences
There is beauty as far as the eye can see
Stand in the strength of Your True Nature
Follow the trails of the Wise Ones
Protect and preserve timeless beauty,
silence, solitude, serenity,
Rise above it all
Make solid decisions
Climb beyond your limitations
Leave no stone unturned
Never take life for granite
Get to the point
Patience, patience, patience
Life has its ups and downs
Let your troubles vanish into thin air
To summit all up
It’s the journey step by step

Mugshots are ugly
Posted by lambskinny in Awards, Blog, Photography, Uncategorized, Wordpress on June 30, 2013
One of the best “I got a Versatile Blogger Award” announcements I’ve read!
What is an ugly picture?
How about a mug shot? After all such pictures possibly personify best what is ugly in human society.
Daily Prompt: Shape up or ship out/Ugly
The following is a Versatile Blogger Award response masquerading as a fictitious news article. 😛
Singapore – Donna the local mongrel who was previously turned in for investigation by the authorities for the first suspected unlicensed protest to be staged by a dog in this country has fled. It is rumoured that the dog police whispered in embarrassment the statement that Donna the local mongrel, made her escape when wardens let her out in the yard to read her pee-mail. The authorities do not have an answer as to why the local mongrel held in custody should have access to pee-mail or any kind of communications with the dog network. They have refused to comment for this news report.

And I just love snow…
Yesterday was a bright sunshiny day. It was also day 5 of a 6 day work week for me, and about -17 Celsius with a brisk wind. I looked outside in the morning and said EFF THIS, or words to that effect. This is March for the love of all that’s holy, not January. It wouldn’t have been so disappointing to get all this snow if we hadn’t been seeing bare roads and snowless walkways and little tiny hints of spring. Now they’ve disappeared again.
I know I should not be saying bad words, not only because they don’t sound very nice, but also because they have no power to change the weather.
I will blame being tired of working, and maybe also the fact that muttering ‘oh dearie me’ like a proper grandmother just doesn’t cut it sometimes.
So for future reference, I have strung a few Eff words together and tried…

everyday life captured by the lens
So simple. So sweet.

A little – literally! – fiction for your Sunday.
One day you drifted into my life. Taken by your grace and strength, I plunged into our relationship head first without really knowing how deep I was. My mistake. I can no longer keep my head above water. You say you can save me but I fear you’re my anchor.
