They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream.
from ‘Vitae Summa Brevis Spem Nos Vetat Incohare Longam’ by Ernest Dowson

Pure whimsy, compliments of my gig with
Urban Cottage, a local vintage shop with a knack for creating readymade still lifes in their shop displays.

Surrealist funhouse still life complete with dreamy distortion, random objects and disembodied human forms. Open to subconscious rambling, window shopping or whatever floats your boat.

Reflections are always revealing. Especially when they supply a glimpse of another world beyond the looking glass…

This is my favorite kind of image – something mundane turned mesmerizing through the lens and the mind’s eye. It has all kinds of beautiful suggestion and also works on a totally abstract level. I keep thinking that it looks like amber in a re-animated, liquid form. And I imagine all those imprioned insects stretching and wriggling their legs after so many petrified eons…

The Nokomis bridge evokes the seaside. Crossing it into the city, I find refuge in the simple act of coming home, as if we inhabited a remote island sanctuary. And, in a way, we do.
