Paint your life complimentary

Having turned my nose up, at an early age, to the snobbery of class consciousness, I chose a lifestyle of flirting with privileged poverty. Noodling on high notes, over the heavy base lines of theology and science, I learned to orchestrate and harmonize in complementary colors. Thirteen notes and three colors create worlds of beauty.

Living in poverty can mean that you are living in an economically disadvantage situation. It can be because of circumstances or it can be by choice.

Fernandina Beach’s illuminous Krytal. Everything here, on the island is bright and shiny, with the exception of air and water.

On the surface of this photo is a small wave breaking. If you look at the bottom of the photo, you will see a crocodile. We crossed paths that day. Me, being blissfully unaware of his presence, until I came home and downloaded my photos. Continue reading “What Lurks Beneath”

Cyber B. Jones

The cyber world simulates the other.

Society demands bells and whistles, words and content followers, comments and photos.

Those in the know, tell you what is best, what has value.

I just can’t go there. Mr. Jones can have what he has, and I will keep my minimal blog at the risk of being called “low hanging fruit”.
