Street Festival   1 comment

Festival008 b-w blogStreet Festival –Image by kenne

The festival was always a place of unrestrained joy. The costumes lit up the summer’s day,
a riot of colour to rival any gardener’s paradise. Music filled the air,
festive beats lifted the spirits and made the people want to move, jump and sing.
It was a time to celebrate being alive, celebrate the wonders of creation
and be one with the community. The air tasted so heavenly with the chefs alongside
the parade, every delicious thing ready to be shared with friends.

There are times

I’m not a female,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t male

I’m not a black,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a white

I’m not immortal,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t mortal

I’m not a doubter,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a believer

I’m not a conservative,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a liberal

I’m not a saint,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t sinful

I’m not ignorant,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t learned

I’m not implicit
But there are times
I wish I weren’t explicit

I’m not an Islamic,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a Christian

I’m not an animal,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a human

I’m not in
But there are times
I wish I weren’t out

I’m not lonely
But there are times
I wish I weren’t the opposite

I’m not you
But there are times
I wish I weren’t me

… Still, there are times
I am the opposite
Of the opposite of me

My attitude depends on who you are.

State Of The Blues — Fotofest 2002 Revisited   Leave a comment

Going through some old photos, I found some I took at a 2002 Fotofest event, State of the Blues.
Since we were recently in Houston visiting family, I thought this would be an appropriate time to revisit the State of The Blues.

The splendor of the Joshua tree
is as unique and identifiable
to the Mohave Desert
as the majestic saguaro cactus
is to the Sonoran Desert.

“. . . I now find the most marvelous things in
the everyday,
the ordinary,
the common,
the simple and tangible.
For example:
one cloud floating over one mountain.”
