MySpot: Purplish Autumn









"Everything we see is celebrating one last violently hued hurrah before the black and white silence of winter. 
Fall is begging for us to dance and sing and write with just the same drama and blaze."

Shauna Niequist

MySpot: Dull November






"Usually, I cannot just voluntarily sit down in deep thought and begin writing nor would I want to. 
Nearly everything that comes together, comes together in pieces, out of life."

Criss Jami

’Twas a Yellow Rose




"Rose, oh pure contradiction, 
joy of being No-one's sleep under so many lids."

Rainer Maria Rilke

MySpot: Persuasion




"You pierce my soul. 
I am half agony, half hope. 
Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. 
I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, 
eight years and a half ago. 
Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. 
I have loved none but you."

Jane Austen

MySpot: You Know the Sun is Shining





"It's better to burn out, than fade away."


Nirvana 

A Grapy Over Tangerine Dusk



"The sun tells the best joke of a day full of them, 
setting so spectacularly that you can almost smell the tropical paradise lazing somewhere 
over this rim of endless, gray socialist towers. 
Miles of square windows explode orange, red, and purple, 
like a million TV sets broadcasting the apocalypse. 
Clouds unspool. 
The sky drains of birds."

Tod Wodicka

MySpot: Like an Yellow Leaf











"My way of life 
Is fall'n into the sere, the yellow leaf,
And that which should accompany old age,
As honor, love, obedience, troops of friends,
I must not look to have."

William Shakespeare

MySpot: My Brother has the Best Sister in the World :)








"To the outside world we all grow old. 
But not to brothers and sisters. 
We know each other as we always were. 
We know each other’s hearts. 
We share private family jokes. 
We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. 
We live outside the touch of time."

Clara Ortega

MySpot: Black and White View




"At one side of the palette there is white, at the other black; 
and neither is ever used neat."


Winston Churchill

Advice from a Mushroom



Be down-to-earth
Sprout new ideas
Keep a low profile
Know when to show up
Stay well-rounded
Start from the ground up
Be a fun-guy!

London, 2015: Black&White London



































"No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life;

Samuel Johnson, quoted by James Boswell
