It is almost impossible to do anything other than read the ST on an iphone.


BTW

What Sound Are You Listening To Right Now?

Shirley people listen to stuff besides songs.

Hey MFM my friend's mom, Linda Abbott has an opening this Thursday the 14th at the Merced Multicultural Arts Center. She lived for many years in Yosemite. I'm going to assume her show will be Yosemite themed paintings. It sounds like you're a patron of the Merced scene so check it out. Way back when, she was neighbors with Wayne Merry.

BTW nita really likes that card and wants to know if they are still for sale.

The card that I just sent, right? I can't remember the scene, but will look toute de suite and get back to you. I'm dropping in there this morning and if I see it I'll recognize it. Was it the El Cap watercolor by Helen Swickard?

Here's the low-down on LA's show.
http://lindaabbott.fineartstudioonline.com/event/36474/merced-from-my-point-of-view

I want to meet her since I have been taking so many photos downtown and of the homes in the older section of this Tree City USA. Is Chico listed as one of those? I'm sure Visalia must be. Petticoat Junciton tried to become one, but the Shady Rest isn't all that shady.

Barks worse than bites? A question for the future to decide.

I once heard, yep, I did, a phrase that has stuck in my head like some old Grateful Dead: "the tyranny of another generation's music."

Trees do not have ears but can detect sounds, so that puts the ancient question to rest, BTW. Trees are like dogs, notorious for shedding.

There is a tale that some long-ago wag may have used the name in jest.
Waggy: "Let's call this part bark, Shaggy. It's got dog pee all over that bottom part, just like yore foots. And it's all shaggy, too."

Shaggy: "Bite me."

I've posted to the Great Tree thread.
It's very "grovy" there.

And looking at a tree's shapely head
Up in the winter air
Is somewhat the same as looking at
A pretty lady's hair.

It's all in the moment with a camera. Your picture-taking is like mine (and so a lot of us) in that respect, it seems.
The process goes like this as I see it:
We are struck by the moment and lift, frame/compose, shoot, at least with a digital camera.
Or, like you told me, about when your were taking shots with film, like this: Lift, frame/compose, THEN wait till it's perfect so you don't waste film (thus losing spontaneity and some of the FUN) THEN shoot.

As I'm walking though the park or along a street, the view is constantly changing, so how can I be sure, that what I see is real...

(Sorry, slipped into song mode.)

You get the idea, I thingk.

The man who considers himself an artist will set the shot up, wait for the right conditions, shoot, then go home and look at what he's done, judge it for himself, then do it all over. Am I right, Claude Fidler? Am I right, Dean? I would need to type this whole page over if I wanted to remove that extra "g" in the last paragraph, were this a negative.

But I hope this little disquisition helps show you what
I DON'T KNOW. How can I find what that is except by listening to criticism? And you know how I feel about critics, neebee. My new friend Larry might have some things to say.

I only know that what I think I seem to have seen or heard or otherwise experienced may or may not have been real or true.

The corners of my eye lead to the corridors of my mind?  I knew that.

It's why I don't think of myself as a bigot, though I have prejudices.

I was taught to distrust Russkies as we all were as boys and girls, except the very youngest. (Vitaliy would have been an outcast. Anastasia would have been shunned or deported--freakin' ice climbers AND Russkies, the double whammy.)

My new buddy Larry is Russian. And his stage name is not Pablo, like I dyslexically thought--SEE?--but Pobla. He is also a devoted fan of his home, Merced. We are gonna get along just Hunky, Dora.

So, Pablo turns out to be Pobla. His little "Pobla Studio" is on Main St. in the Tioga Hotel building, next to the empty lot where the Greyhound Bus Station used to sit.


FLASH--This Just In!
"At first she just looked and tilted her head sideways back and forth.
Then, she went to the window and barked. Then I said 'what's that?'
That sent her off her rocker. then she calmed down.
Same reaction she has when the cyotes sound off around here."

The report on Tim's dog when he had her listen to the Wolf Howl on YouTube. We are truly spreading the joy around here!


Getting back to Pobla Studio, the gent's name in Russian is the origin of Pobla. I don't recall what he said his first name was, but the second was Lavrentiy, or Lawrence, or to me, the stooge, Larry. Pob/La is the combination of the two names. Might be a diminutive of Pavel on the first name.

We have much in common, I'm thinking, and a lot to learn from one another. I call the dude Larry, in jest, but the name will either stick or not. Our visit yesterday morning was cut short by the arrival of two young friends, Irene and Mike and their daughter, name forgotten before I could write all this down. Irene laughed and so did Larry, when I used the name to indicate I knew what Lavrentiy meantiy.
