‘Smug’

Standard

For those that haven’t put me on the closet shelf labelled “remove from having to look at him and listen to him, BUT STAY FRIENDS,
you are probably like me. I don’t have all the answers but enjoy participating in the search for the correct ones.
I am not parked in a ‘safe zone’ waiting for the Golden Ladder. I am not ‘smug’.
I’m wearing my battles with decisions and thoughts, heart and mind on my sleeve.
I do not have IT made.
I trust that attempting to be, attempting to contribute, and learn are acceptable and I shall walk on.
And I am not alone. Thanks for the company and the conversation. rdd

Shroom Creatures (Photo art)

Standard

This morning at light, I was allowed to find these Shroom creatures from Pandora/ Avatar. They had landed in Kenzie’s flowers which, if you know the movie, was apropos. They came to make contact with something of Kenzie’s.
So, I caught them before they flew away back to Pandora and the ‘tree of life’ with their discovery! rdd

The Best Men

Standard

The Best Men

The best men know spear chucking, archery, running swiftly, kill the mammoth are natural, and when accompanied by the fine arts of roasting, and saucing, tilling and wenching are as important! …… These are good,…… these are good and make the whole man. A kerchief around the neck seasoned with sweat, tanned crown of thinning silver hair…… some leather and a glint in his eye ……….. Aye! ….I’m almost out of bourbon….. so a bit of shopping too! Aye…..LOL, LOL
Good Friday Evening to you.
