OddityA flock of odd colored birds follow you everywhere…Last week, it was odd—at least I thought it odd—when I recalled these seagulls seemingly chasing me, staying in my shadow. Maybe, I was in their shadow. It was odd. Oh, I said that. Well, it really was. It was odd to the point of being downright […]

Art appreciation of certain stuff

Art Appreciation of certain stuff Do you need to agree with an artist’s lifestyle or politics to appreciate their art? To spend money on it?Are you serious in asking this? Now, I am sure how it might be more “convenient,” to be on the same page. But, I am sure Thomas Paine, Andrew Jackson, and […]

So far, so good and many have already learned, at least, a smidgeon more than the average bear about the humans who were always built up […]
