take my hand and climb with me…

one hundred and four degrees: ‘days just blow away…’

If I Get Old ~ Elliot Brood

one hundred and four

Slow tick, life’s clock. Wrinkles. Minutes slip, past.

The hour, glass. Half, full? Or empty.

Perspective, depends purely. On ageless, angles.


I’m going to make a brand new start…

      Thank *you* for your kind words, Peter… ah, yes the grand contemplation of time. Served with the evening star and a splash of whiskey! Love from the Overberg, Bx

    “Ageless, angles”
    You create such beautiful imagery via your poetry. Beautiful again. I could read these all day..

      Deep appreciation for your comment Andrien… my medium of choice is certainly words: love playfully painting with ’em. Likewise your magnificent photo’s – they transport the viewer into a whimsical realm of pure magic. How about creating a book? I’d be in for one!

        That would be awesome! Seriously! 🙂 We should totally collaborate on stuff sometime. You could write something and I could take a photograph interpreting it or I could take a picture, and you could write something interpreting it!

        OH!!!!!!! I would *love* that… yes! yes! yes! I already have this trilogy of poems which I think would fit some of your existing images and (perhaps?) inspire some more. Have you watched the Wim Wenders classic “Wings of Desire?” If not, I suggest placing it high up on your To See/Do/Read list. Right alongside The Night Circus! Please send me your email address: I’ll mail you the poems and if they resonate, let’s collaborate! 🙂

        Of course! I would love that! This will be such a cool project to do!!
        I haven’t watched it no, but I’ll put both of those at the top and check them out! You can contact me by e-mail at adrienclay36@gmail.com!
