WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: SUNSET

The redness had seeped from the day and night was arranging herself around us. Cooling things down, staining and dyeing the evening purple and blue black.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: MY FAVORITE PLACE

Paradise isn’t a place.

It’s a feeling.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: I’D RATHER BE….

You’ve seen bumper stickers that read “I’d rather be…”.  Yep. Twitter on Wheels.

 

Writing in public places is meant to be read.

 

 

I think a bumper sticker creates a relationship between the “writer car” and the “reader car”.   One of my all-time faves ~ “This Bumper Isn’t BIG ENOUGH For What I’ve Got to Say!”

 

 

 

Stick figure families were popular for a while. Not so much anymore.

 

 

I guess the writer car is saying I don’t care about your stick figure family to the reader car. So there.

But bumper stickers aren’t all raw-knuckled and razor-edged.  Case in point: Koren’s beasts.

 

 

 

I’m a stonking huge fan of his unreservedly brilliant animal cartoons.

 

And when I head up to the children’s room at the library, a entire constellation of critters cavort up the stairs.  Animals with books, a whimsically playful bunch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They all have a book or three.

My response to “I’d rather be…”?

 I’d rather be at the library.*

Going up?
