No Fun

“You’ll bounce.” They said,

And so, I jumped. Without a

Doubt, I’d toughen up. “Boys

Don’t cry.” The big one said,

When I fell and bumped my head.

If these are friends, I’d rather

Have none, cause none of this

Is any doggone fun.

Children in Forest by Viktor Vasnetsov, 1874

Photo Challenge & Poem: Weathered

The Daily Post photo challenge inspired a photo and a poem.


Skin hangs loose
On weary bones

Eyes look passed
The past hearts of stone

Beating heart
Beats on despite the unknown

52Frames is a Weekly Challenge Photography Project for creatives around the world. Each week, participants have 7 days to go out, take a photo, and submit it to the community. It is this creative challenge that not only improves one craft but also enables you to see the world differently.”

I have decided to join the 52Frames project this year. The albums are posted on Facebook so I am not sure of a quick and easy way to share here on WordPress so if anyone wants to follow along “like” the 52Frames Facebook page to see everyone’s weekly entries.

The first two challenges have been posted. Here are my entries.

Week 1: Self-Portrait, extra credit “imperfection.”

Do you see what I see?

Week 2: Blue


Be sure to visit the 52Frames site to see past challenges and keep up with the ongoing weekly albums.

Upcoming for week 3 is Leading Lines.

Worcester City Hall Fire & Ice Art Show

I am a bit late getting this posted because of the holidays and such but I wanted to blog about it before the show ends.

I had two photos selected to hang in the Worcester City Hall Gallery for the theme of Fire & Ice.

The show runs from November 30, 2017, through February 2018.

The Spring show is coming up. The theme is “Rebirth.” I am considering entering again. It’s always fun to have art hanging in a gallery. The shows are sponsored by Worcester Cultural Coalition. If you are interested in entering, you can find more information here.
