I like this photo because it’s a bit all over the place – the wild styles of Chihuly, the desert, the manmade structures.  As if it were evolving.

Most of my Creativity is in the realm of the written word though I can do some mean brainstorming on conceptual and design.  I love making connections where it seems none exist.  I am getting into digital photography and appreciating Beauty in any form, wherever she is to be found!

Always liked poems, especially enjoy taking “hard” concepts and softening them up a bit. Easy-to-grasp book (How to Lie With Statistics) that lightened up Stats class inspired this:

Ode to a Statistic

Oh mighty “Stat,”

You’re “where it’s at.”

You could mean this,

You could mean that.

What do you mean, “mean?”

Standard deviation unseen.

You have a sample,

But is it ample?

You have a conclusion,

But is it illusion?

Every statistic,

Like every poem,

Open to interpretation.

And, why not:


Oh, the Worry!

Oh, the mess!

Shall I go in pants?

should i wear this dress?

What to wear?

Is this too tight?

Do I look my best?

Is this “Just right?”

OH, When is death?

When does this stress…


loved ones then can say:

she’d want to be buried

in this,

no, this!

the eternal struggle

of fashion


What do you see?
