I fly far without wings
or illusions.
I immerse my body in sunlight, wholly,
motionless, like a stone shaped
in ancient time.
My soul rests in my brain—
I see it drag in the shadow like the long tail
of the thieving magpie that visits me, magically calm.

 —from ‘An Image’ by Chen Jun 陈均 (1974-)

It is up to you to give it a meaning,

and value is nothing

but the meaning that you choose.”

This image and poem predate selfies and my blog.
Why is the poem addressed to “Mr. Joe?”
I have no idea.
“Do not seek answers
which cannot be given you . . .”

“Is It, Or Is It Not?”   1 comment

Foggy Morning — Photo-Artistry by kenne

“Is it, or is it not?”

Look Again,
The image you see
Is not what is.

Look again,
The image you see
Is not what was.

Look again,
The image you see
Is not what will be.

Look again,
The image you see
Is not what is real.

Wine for Two, Revisited   Leave a comment

Deck Shots“Wine for Two” — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Wine for Two
(May 2008)

Picture this,
the setting sun
beaming streams of light
through the trees.

Occasionally moving
with the breeze,
sending beams dancing
across the glass tabletop.

Captured for the moment
in two glasses of wine,
only to be released forever
to the hearts of each lover.

A visual of the mind
seeking a mindless void
for each heart to fill
but a fragment of the matrix

The new field of vision
changing the way things are seen,
the glasses in the picture
forever changed to one.

Azalea Bloom-2-blogLate Bloomer (Azalea) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

In early spring the south and gulf coast are abound with azalea blossoms. When we moved to the Arizona desert from the gulf coast, we brought along a potted azalea plant. Each spring our little plant had many blossoms. However this spring there were no blossoms. But much to our surprise in September one blossom emerged. — kenne

The First of Several Planned Gathering In Houston   Leave a comment

Dinner at Lupe Tortilla's in The Wooodlands blog IIKatelyn Turner, Janie Turner, Joy Otrey, Kenne D. Turner, Mary Ann Turner-McCloud, Buddy McCloud, Katie Turner-Bailey and Kenne G. Turner (Lupe Tortilla’s in The Woodlands, Texas, July 27, 2018) — Image by waiter, Saul

We have been planning Joy’s 70th birthday for several months. We knew Kate and her Family who now lives in New Hampshire would not be able to make it to the beach house gathering in Galveston this weekend. We also knew that Katelyn, Janie and Kenne D. would be camping in Central Texas.

Then, a couple of weeks ago we learned Kate would be attending a conference in Houston this week, so plans were quickly made to have dinner on the 27th — Kate was very pleased. We arrived in Houston at 3:30 pm with plenty of time for dinner at 6:30 pm in The Woodlands.

Tomorrow we leave for the Galveston beach house.
