Daily Post Prompt: Abstract Art According to Hillbillies

` Two Hillbillies in an Art Museum: “What is it?” “It’s an abstract.” “A what?” “An abstract. You know – that’s where somebody who thinks he’s an artist takes a canvas and slops a bunch of paint onto it in weird patterns. Then somebody else who thinks he’s an art expert comes along and saysContinue reading “Daily Post Prompt: Abstract Art According to Hillbillies”

Share Your World, 2014 – Week 40

As part of sharing my world, I’m including a picture of tonight’s full moon from my front porch.  Doesn’t God do nice work? Now for the questions. Question # 1:  You’re given $500,000 tax free (any currency). What do you spend it on? I think I would establish a Bible college. Question # 2:  What’sContinue reading “Share Your World, 2014 – Week 40”

NaPoWriMo – Day 1 – Contemplations on “The Last Supper”

This piece is part of my involvement with NaPoWriMo.  The site suggested a prompt for the very early hours of April 1st, aimed at those poets who live in countries where the day began many hours before it did for the hostess of the site.  I liked that prompt, so I decided to use itContinue reading “NaPoWriMo – Day 1 – Contemplations on “The Last Supper””

100-Word Challenge for Grown Ups #85 — ‘Wendell’s Angel’

I’m running behind (no pun intended), but I was so swamped with other work last week that I didn’t get a chance to check out the 100-Word Challenge at Julia’s Place. But when I was there yesterday and saw the photo from last week, I just could not resist writing a story for it. SoContinue reading “100-Word Challenge for Grown Ups #85 — ‘Wendell’s Angel’”

Friday Fictioneers – Week # 77 — A Royal Love Story

This week’s Friday Fictioneers prompt is a photo by David Stewart of a statue in his home city in Korea.  My response turned out to be a love story — maybe because my focus this week is on Valentine’s Day.  Here’s David’s photo, followed by my take on the challenge. A Royal Love Story Once uponContinue reading “Friday Fictioneers – Week # 77 — A Royal Love Story”

Friday Fictioneers — February 1 — As It Was In The Beginning

Well, I am waaaaaaay out in left field on this week’s challenge.  It was fun getting here, but I don’t have enough words to get back.  This piece is definitely “stream of consciousness” writing. Here’s the photo prompt that Rochelle gave us — courtesy of Claire Fuller, who created the sculpture and took the photo.Continue reading “Friday Fictioneers — February 1 — As It Was In The Beginning”

Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows — Week 16

I’m late with “Thursday’s Windows” again this week — due to the fact that I was sick this past week and had my work schedule flopped around, so that I was a little out of sync. Since I’m evidently having a problem keeping up with the program, I think it’s probably time to bring thisContinue reading “Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows — Week 16”

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

I have a good friend who is a professional photographer, but he likes to experiment with computer graphics as well.  The picture below is one of his original computer creations, and I think it fits this week’s challenge nicely.
