An unexpected and delightful find. And yes, this is Jim Carrey: actor, comedian and now artist.
Sometimes life is ALL walls & windows… no doors.
But it is still life.
And in my confinement I found contentment.
Quietly sitting in the center
To weak to climb the walls
I found a shovel and started to dig instead.
My contentment brought enlightenment
and opportunity… my sight was more
than any window could afford.

Rest in peace to one of the grand dames of World Cinema – no one classier.
She could express and embody emotion and mood in the subtlest ways. She worked with only the best directors.
Jeanne Moreau 23 January 1928 – 31 July 2017
This first clip is from Louis Malle’s film Ascenseur pour L’échafaud – it features the first movie soundtrack composed by the esteemed Miles Davis and signaled a change in his sound that he would explore of future recordings like A Kind of Blue….
Here are some other trailers from some of my favorite films starring Jeanne Moreau.
When the door is shut in your face, you are in a unique position to reflect on other opportunities you may not have previously seen or considered.
Not all opened doors lead to betterment – even broom closets have doors.
a Reblog from Photography in Oman. I absolutely love this beautiful video by Mike Olbinski. FYI – a must-watch in full screen.
Probably like most people, the desperate situation in Syria that has been going on for several years sickens me. I am so disgusted with the politicians playing with innocent peoples lives. But is there hope?
I love this song and video by Maher Zain. It’s filled with powerful images and allegory. Enjoy. Will love prevail through you and me?
* if you purchase this song from iTunes – all proceeds go to Syrian humanitarian relief work. Help The Syrian People: http://humanappeal.org.uk
Do you masticate?
Or, do you just eat?
Mastication is one of those words that I absolutely L-O-V-E. What is it? Well if you don’t know mastication is the act of chewing food, gum, or whatever you decide to put in your mouth (be careful now). To me “eat” just seems so common and bland like something one does out of habit. It is what you do at McDonalds. But “mastication” is filled with glamour. It’s how your mouth romances the food you put into it. It’s the tease and tickle of the taste buds on your tongue it releases flavors and smells of great food for a multi-sensory sensation. It’s what you do when enjoying fine dining.
Of course you still gotta be really careful what you eat. If you eat lots of leafy greens and vegetables you won’t have to suffer this next song.
“I feel alright….yeaaahhh” LOL 🙂
Little did I know in 2012 – when I took this photo of some graffiti on a wall – how relevant it would be only 5 years later in T-rumpworld – where borders are being shuttered and talk of walls being built. East Vs. West and North Vs. South. The McCarthy era has returned with a vengeance – where suspicion breeds fear and hatred.
I look forward to when walls come down and borders are opened – it will happen eventually no matter how hard you fight it – history has ALWAYS proven that walls come down… so why bother to build? Couldn’t better things be done with the money?
…or, how to start your day serious and end with a smile…. 😉 Have a GREAT weekend everyone.

Where have all the swallows gone?
ghosts of freedom
of grace and dignity
gone gone gone
hiding in dark shelters
waiting for the noisy,
angry hunter to leave
fire burns the fields
arrogance tears down shelters
bringer of death
the enslaver comes with a mocking grin
noisily waving a flag
