All Are Welcome......





THE ACROBATS
I'll swing
By my ankles,
She'll cling
To your knees
As you hang
By your nose
From a high-up
Trapeze.
But just one thing, please,
As we float through the breeze-
Don't sneeze.

Hi Everybody....The other day I was talking with someone about poetry, writing, and artistic expression on our blogs. It's obvious that some bloggers are very talented. If you've ever read any story by James Goodman, ever read any poem by Mona or Shadow, ever read a novel by Serena, ever seen any photography by Barman, the quilting talents of Lime, or gasped at the culinary genius of Uncle Buff, you know exactly what I'm talking about. I made the statement that if poetry and writing were your K thru 12 Education, I'd be in Pre-School!!!!!
I guess with that thought in mind, the late great Shel Silverstein rings a bell .
He wrote songs such as "Freakin At The Freaker's Ball..."A Boy Named Sue", and many many other silly little ditties. (As well as the pictured above classics). So when any of you may think that your artistic talent isn't worthy of a post, just remember...Sometimes there is Great Beauty in Simplicity....
Have a Wonderful Week....Peace...!!!

shel silverstein has been one of my favorites for a very long time.

i can't take credit for the quilts on my site though. i have only ever made one small table runner and helped piece part of a quilt. my mother, grandparents and great grandmothers made the other quilts i have displayed.

Serena said...

There is indeed a lot of talent in the blogging world. Much simplicity, too, but that's another story.:-)

Great post!

Missy said...

Galen,

if I were a vain person I might have been slighted :P~~~~~~~~ As is, you've mentioned me before, and my so called talents pale compared to those others you've mentioned.

Truly a plethora of talent rings around us. Not to mention your nurturing nature.

It's freakenlicking icy here. Moving up your way or there about.

Carry on.
