Full-time photographer. Love reading. Love writing. oh yeah...love making visual discoveries with the camera
Real life activities make me jot down short reminders as poems. As a photographer, I am a sucker for the way light plays with us on earth and so must catch it and show others its beauty and playfulness. The same with the random notes I make. They, too, are like snippets of captured light that must be shared. It is the feedback that can make all of it important or ludicrous. More on this later...

I'll make you some sticky buns. Thanks for the comment.
Hi Carl, sorry for the late thank-you, but I haven't forgotten. Moved to Germany, so I've been a bit busy. Anyway, thanks for the read and comment on Frank Meets Francine - much appreciated. fos.
Thank you so much, Carl! Means much that you enjoyed "Pool Toys" enough to comment. Best, HM
Thank you for your read and comments on my poem "Remembering the Future," Carl. I greatly appreciate it.
Hi Carl, thank you for commenting on my "Marmalade". I don't know if he was wearing a hat, he may be the kind of man who does. He once told me while walking down Sappho street he was singing "Que sera, sera..." to himself. And added that he was too old for this. But probably not old enough for a hat.
Thank you for your comment on Spaghetti Woman. In fact, I think we are all drawing from our collective unconscious about the stratosphere, where the fragile ozone layer exists. Just today the NY Times said that worsening storms due to global warming are harming the ozone layer with a backsplash of water in an area that is normally desert dry. Our surival on earth depends on it. I'm not surprised it's popping up in lots of stories. I also enjoyed your unfortunate Invisible Woman.
