Expectations: Tomorrow Is Not Promised   Leave a comment

Expectations

Who are you,
you who share
my very existence
with your expectations,
sometimes calling them
traditions,
placing more value
on the worth
of your expectations,
unwilling to understand
neither the what
nor the why
of my very being.

Who am I,
I who share
your very existence
with my expectations,
sometimes calling them
logical
placing more value
on the worth of my expectations,
unwilling to understand
neither the what
nor the why
of your very being.

Who are we,
we who share
a finite existence
with our expectations,
sometimes calling them
unconditional
placing more value
on the worth of our expectations
unwilling to understand
neither the what
nor the why
of a finite being.

Who are they,
they who share
our very existence
with their expectations,
sometimes calling them
laws
placing more value
on the worth of their expectations
unwilling to understand
neither the what
nor the why
of our very being.

Who are We
We who share
an infinite existence
with our expectations,
sometimes calling them
spiritual
placing more value
on the worth of all expectations
willing to understand
both the what
and the why
of a universal being.

Tufted Titmouse   Leave a comment

Tufted Titmouse, Kingwood, Texas (October 9, 2021) — Image by Hugh Poland

The Tufted Titmouse is not found in the southwest but is common in eastern deciduous forests and
a frequent visitor to feeders. The large black eyes, small, round bill, and brushy crest gives these
birds a quiet but eager expression that matches the way they flit through canopies, hang from twig
ends, and drop in to bird feeders. When a titmouse finds a large seed, you’ll see it carry the prize to
a perch and crack it with sharp whacks of its stout bill.

Becoming is Superior to Being

A box of film negatives purchased at a Chicago auction in 2007 by John Maloof, a young real estate agent, may turn out to be the discovery of the Emily Dickinson of Photography. To date, little is known about this private, “keep your distance” excentric. Yet, as the photography world becomes aware of her captivating photos, she quickly becomes a much-admired photographer after her death two years ago. Starting the past Friday, the Chicago Cultural Center has a one-woman show, “Finding Vivian Maier: Chicago Street Photographer.” Only time will tell if Vivian Maier will reach the statue of an Emily Dickinson of Photography, but interest she has already created can’t help but make one wonder.

Here are some links where you can learn more, see some of her work, and judge for yourself:

Michael passed away in early December. He was a gentle person, a musician, and a teacher. Over the years, I have had many opportunities to photograph my friend. Currently, I have to go through my photos to produce a video. — kenne

Old Tucson Studios — Photo-Artistry by kenne

TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — It’s been just over a year since Old Tucson Studios closed its doors.
The famous western attraction shuttered because of the pandemic. Now, after a long and at times
secretive process, Pima County is getting ready to announce who will take over the lease.

“The proposal period now has closed and they are actively considering whatever proposals have come in,”
said filmmaker and Chair of the Arizona Film Expo, Daryl Mallett.

Mallet was also a member of the Pima County Old Tucson Task Force. They helped in the county’s
process of finding the right developer to take over the lease of Old Tucson. Although he doesn’t know
who County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry will recommend to the supervisors, he does get a sense
the decision will be announced soon. — Source: KGUN9.com

Desert moonlight dwells in the shadows

Changing with earth’s rotation

Creating a multitude of conflicting images

Daring you to select one to perfect

At the expense of the others
