Victor Genova withI saw an accident. Two cars. Looked like one car had cut in front of the other and slammed on its brakes. On overpass. Fire engine. Ambulance. A guy leaning against a guard rail. A woman in white hair rushing around. Medics taking a younger woman out of a car and putting her on a stretcher. Whiplash. I walked my bike passed. A few moments later on the other side of the overpass a young woman dressed to the nine’s passed me. Heading toward the accident. Without a care in the world.


The Fall of the Ottoman EmpireYou have to learn to think outside the box inside the larger box.

I read about possible military intervention in Syria. And the drone attacks. And the prisoners still in Quantanamo. And this is a Democratic presidency. Makes you wonder where we’d be if Romney had won. Is America treating the world like a drive-by shooting?

ugly as sin

The Duchess of IslingtonDoes everyone whose on American news programs have to shout? That’s what panel discussions are. And does everyone female ‘expert’ have to be under 35 and beautiful? CNN is like a pageant. And the guys are even prettier. Americans should see Rex Murphy. He’s ugly as sin and interesting as hell.


For your love

Mary and Helen at the galleryI’ve been working all day trying to get the sewage out of our basement. Reminds me of an old rock’n’roll song that I love.
