Aarrggghhhh!!! or, my Oscars rant


A little bit of lipstick won't hurt you, neither would a smile.

Skinny legged tuxedos are fab, but gentlemen, please. Facial hair must be groomed. Keanu Reeves, hello?

I so nude colored clothing.

Thank you, Zoe Kravitz, for giving my daughter a perfect example of how to be daddy's girl.

found poem

in cleaning out my gmail (because procrastination takes many turns)

The Bright Field
~R.S. Thomas

I have seen the sun break through
to illuminate a small field
for a while, and gone my way
and forgotten it. But that was the pearl
of great price, the one field that had
treasure in it. I realize now
that I must give all that I have
to possess it. Life is not hurrying
on to a receeding future, nor hankering after
an imagined past. It is the turning
aside like Moses to the miracle
of the lit bush, to a brightness
that seemed as transitory as your youth
once, but is the eternity that awaits you.
