More Spookyness

These characters are in photos I took at the Bread and Puppet Theatre in Vermont.  When I visited, there was no one at all except me in the giant, two story, dark barn where the puppets are kept.  There was no  electricity and I used my camera's light to make my way across the ancient floorboards and snap the pictures. It was October. Mwaaahahahaa !

Mingei Community Quilt

Remember the Mingei Mermaid?  The Community Quilt is now hanging upstairs in the Museum until December 18th.  My little mermaid is 'three across, two down' and happy to be there!

I Give You The "Bird"



Manipulated Photo

Poem to a Homeless Man 
in an Orange Shirt, Singing

Caught in a living hell,
singing songs to broken skies,
standing on pieces that fell.

I admire your tunes and verse
I’ve heard angels
who sang much worse.

Hey, bird, keep on singing,
all orange and blue -
Maybe the sky
will fall up for you!

Like Alice...

Like Alice, I am tall or small
and, falling, change like leaves to gold.
Arriving at the Hatter’s Tea
I smile, and chat, and quite agree
no one has ever seen me old,
and yet I’ve grown.

And you are there at chess with me
although I never learned the game.
We bow and change from square to square,
trying to see beyond the board.
Nothing’s the same.

Then I am on the path alone.
The Cheshire smile is fading fast;
the rabbit’s clock is running slow.
I don’t know where I need to go.
Still I watch the plot unfold,
just because I’m never told
what happens next.
