Desert Orangetip Butterfly — Photo-Artistry by kenne

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly,

but rarely admit the changes

it has gone through

to achieve that beauty.

The Courts Call To A More Staged Authentic Culture   Leave a comment

Abstract Art by kenne

The High Court’s call for

a return to a more

staged authentic culture

disregarding its

political implications

is indicative of its failure

to fully understand the

structure of modern society,

not acknowledging that

the individual is part of

a greater whole

discounting the interaction

between people

and institutions

in the community.

A Rose By Any Other Name . . . — Photo-Artistry by kenne

“O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?
           Deny thy father and refuse thy name;
           Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,
           And I’ll no longer be a Capulet…
           ‘Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
           Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
           What’s Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
           Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
           Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
           
What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
           By any other name would smell as sweet;
           So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call’d,
           Retain that dear perfection which he owes
           Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
           And for that name which is no part of thee
           Take all myself.”

— from Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

Don’t call me a photo bomber

This Blue-winged Bird   1 comment

Eastern Bluebird (August 8, 2012) Image by kenne

He had a blue wing tattooed on his shoulder
Well, it might have been a bluebird, I don’t know
But he’d get stone drunk and talk about Alaska
The salmon boats and 45 below
 
He got that blue wing up in Walla Walla
Where his cellmate there was a Little Willy John
And Willie, he was once a great blues singer
And Wing & Willie wrote him up a song
 
     (They sang,)
     “It’s dark in here, can’t see the light
     But I look at this blue wing when I close my eyes
     And I fly away, beyond these walls
     Up above the clouds, where the rain don’t fall
     On a poor man’s dream”
 
— from Blue Wing by Tom Russell

Red (Flame) skimmer (Libellula saturata) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Philosophy is like trying to open a safe with a combination lock:
each little adjustment of the dials seems to achieve nothing,
only when everything is in place does the door open.
