At last, the season of harvest!
I have finished my new canvas,
titled The Canna.
I put the finishing varnish on,
and I will have an image to post next time...
I got new spectacles, at last...
Not just shades,
I can actually see with these !
Me in my new specs

Lately, I'm feeling an unsettling restlessness
flowing through me,
but no words to express...
I'll say it with music.

Once Upon A Time - Jay McShann
Once upon a time, a girl with moonlight in her eyes
Put her hand in mine and said she loved me so
But that was once upon a time, very long ago
Once upon a time, we sat beneath the willow tree
Counting all the stars and waiting for the dawn
But that was once upon a time - now the tree has gone
How the breeze ruffled through her hair
How we always laughed as though tomorrow wasn't there
We were young and didn't have a care
Where did it go?
Once upon a time, the world was sweeter than we knew
Everything was ours - how happy we were then
But, once upon a time never comes again
-Once Upon A Time

Typhoon # 9 has blown over.
September is a month of
unstable weather, in Japan.
After a few typhoons,
it gets to be almost pleasant.
I catch what light I can
working on my canvas-
I started it in August,
and it is almost done.
I will present it here,
when it is!
I will be making more appearances in September
at The Ritz-Carlton.
Please visit my calendar page,
click SEPTEMBER LIVE,
for more details...
Has anyone else noticed lately
the way newscasters,
and people in general are wearing
the ass out of the adverbs
"literally", & "virtually"?
It's starting to make me literally
want to go caveman
on virtually everyone who uses them!
