The coffee table
The coffee table is wood, perhaps hand-made. If so it is well-done, the corners nicely mitred with a little butterfly-stamped piece of wood to hold the edges together snugly. We had picked it up at a garage sale. It was a sunny summer day, and on a whim we ...

August 7. That was a Friday. We went past the blueberry fields to Wigeon Slough. This time the Pitt River was calm, like a poorly-rolled piece of glass you could put sticks into. That's a bad metaphor. Anyway it wasn't windy and choppy like the other time. The water was low, but the tide was coming in and we only grounded the canoe a few times. We had lunch on a sandbar (we later figured it was the second-best sandbar), ate blackberries (sorry, bears!) took a few pictures and waved to people passing by.

This time we went right where the river forked, or more properly, came together, since we were going upstream. What a delightful experience! We even saw a big fish, a mottled black-and-white creature that led us up the creek for a bit before disappearing.

Finally, however, it was time to turn around. A big tree blocked the path. On the way back we glided slowly past herons who showed us their fishing skills. We called them Pat the Heron. There were two of them, and they both can be Pat. Why not? After eating a fish they would wiggle their bums.

And then, back across the Pitt, through the blueberry fields, across the bridge, and back into this other world. A world without Pat.

Under a tree
Under a tree in a park Poking through the dried grass: old dry twigs and defleshed leaves. A tree's garbage dump.

Cherry blossoms
Incredible pinks.  Drink them deeply and quickly:  In two weeks they're gone.  It's against blue sky  The magic of pink happens;  So fleeting and rare  If I didn't know  they'd soon be gone for a year  Would I still see them?

A missing story
Now it's gone. All Winter long, in fact, perhaps even as far back as the Fall, this old truck sat in the parking lot. It would have been invisible to me except for the coffee cup on the fender. When I first saw it I thought the owner must have placed it the...

Buffer zone - proof of concept
An art form emerges from the marketing department I find Slideshare fascinating. It's a way to share presentations. Most of them appear to be about how to make presentations, but that's the nature of the medium, or the message of the medium, or something li...

I watch the moon
Through the telescope  a half-moon's serrated edge.  A thin slice each day

An abstract image becomes a glass diorama.
