Dahlias!

I've been going to Meijer Gardens since it was first created many moons ago in Grand Rapids, MI.  It continues to grow and has sculpture all over the place, both inside and out on the grounds.  Recently Ai WeiWei had an exhibit there, and he left behind a permanent installation called Iron Tree.  I fell… Continue reading Dahlias!

Beware: Sleeper nanobots, seen means inhaled unaware. (Videodrome is real.) Spores disperse through organism’s cavities And invade synapses. Many times sneezed/coughed/pissed/shat out to fertilize i.e. contaminate other fields. Symptoms may not be felt for days, years, or even decades later. Or infection may be immediate.

Gentle on my mind

The first time hearing Glen Campbell was on an album, I believe, Gentle on My Mind.  My mom belonged to a record club and this one was one of many old style country (back then it was modern country) LPs in her collection.  I listened to this album over and over again, visualizing the open… Continue reading Gentle on my mind
