Just a Note – November 21, 2014

Hope to see you tomorrow ..

Bastet and Sekhmet's Library

Hello … I’m having connection problems and can barely write a post using this editor .. and I’ve got to keep things to a bare minimum (uploading photos is an odyssey).  The problem isn’t confined to one computer … so we’ve eliminated a virus attack to a specific computer … at least that’s good news.

My mail-box takes about 10 minutes to open an e-mail … my W.P.  reader won’t open properly (lots of html hash and little blobs where photos should be) so I’m thanking my stars and calling myself  lucky  that I’ve been able to do as much as I have today …

If you’ve commented and I haven’t answered you, please excuse me … I hope the problems clear-up as quickly as possible and I thank you for your loving patience.

I hope to see you tomorrow – Bastet (Georgia)

30 Days of Haiga – September 8, 2014

They tell me that there should be a full moon … and as the calendar agrees I must accept that as a fact … alas, we only have clouds in the sky and some wonderful lightning … so I recycled a spring moon set to do this haiga 😉

BTW, I wish to thank Rick Daddario for this wonderful opportunity … this is the second year that I’ve participated in his annual September event and for all of you who enjoy photography and haiku … this is the moment to put them together and have a little fun. You can do the daily haiga … or just pop one up when you feel inspired.  Rick also gives prompts … but he doesn’t insist that one uses them.

I’d also like to thank him for asking for clear skies over our rain-swept valley …

The first is a genista or broom plant:


heady perfume
your lovely yellow blooms
speak of summer

This second photo is nothing more than the common clover flower ,,, but I jazzed it up a little:

you made fantastic rice

The Albums (Haibun)

Jason looked at the baby pictures in the album his mother’d left him.  There he was…a toddler, surrounded by toys.  Later on, laying in the grass, the old family cat asleep with him.  He’d loved that cat…Misca was its name.  Each photo a return to some far off age,  memories.  His first day at school, his first camping experience with the scouts, and there was the Christmas of ’60 when he got his first “typewriter”, a funny bit of flimsy metal with a dial to pick out the letters.

Years passed each special moment immortalized in a photo.  Each photo placed lovingly in a book for him by his mother, now gone, yet, looking at the albums she seemed so near.

At seventy he realized that many of the people and scenes in the photos were gone forever.  Misca didn’t survive his childhood, his best friend in…
