There was wine. And then there were two arts.

The top one has a line taken from an Alfred Tennyson poem, The Princess. It is tl;dr, yo. The poem is about higher education for women. The image is photos of an academic honors society, from a 1957 high school yearbook.

La colère petite

I love how he throws himself into the flop position when he realizes I won't let him explore under the fir tree. Other than that, he quite enjoyed his snow adventure. He only decided he wanted to go back inside when the neighbor's Weimaraner came flying out their patio door.

Piglet likes to hold hands. And by hold hands, I mean he likes to put his paw on you and hold you down. Preferably while sitting on your chest, so you can't breathe.

Piglet is, well, a piglet. He will eat just about anything, including potato chips. Maybe especially potato chips.

"Nothing Gold Can Stay"

Sunrise Over Wright Quad
Sunrise over Wright Quad

Nothing Gold Can Stay
by Robert Frost

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood!

Sometimes she's so sweet it just about kills me.


Ear of Judgment


Bough Down
Karen Green's Bough Down

I got this from the library and read it and reread it and then I didn't want to give it back, so I bought my own copy.

Goodwill Haul

Because I needed more books.

It's a foggy, melancholy post-election morning

I had to stay home today, because our fire extinguishers are being inspected. I thought I'd better change the battery in my smoke detector, too. I tried two different new batteries, different brands from different stores, and neither worked. So my smoke detector is dead, I guess. I'm stuck at home until maintenance shows up to replace it.

Happy Damn Tuesday!

I Voted

If you can vote, please do so. If you cannot, I am sorry. I voted twice as hard on your behalf. Hopefully we can get some of these infuriating voter disenfranchisement laws repealed.
