    Small world.
    It was getting late at that point in my trip, so I stayed the night in Bartlesville and visited the Wright tower the next morning. When copper is used for exterior applications, it is typically selected for that very reason; the green "patina". If unaided in the process, it does take some time (years) to turn green.

    Yes, thank you. It was fairly low-key...just spent time with my family.

    Hey, thanks for taking a tour of my pics and leaving the nice comments!
    Glad you enjoyed them. Ponca City was a back road stop off on my final trip home from my work assignment in Rockford Ill., from there I went through Bartlesville Ok., to see a Frank Lloyd Wright building. You will need a very large courtyard to fit Bernini's "Fountain of the Four Rivers"!

    Thanks for the request. I really havn't put much thought in the friends requests since I figured it goes without saying for you and many others, but now we can make it official!
    Salute.

    There is no need to apologize Qimi; I really enjoyed your comments.

    My nieces got busy in school and I haven’t taken their pictures for quite some time now.

    Glad you enjoyed it. I learned of Sargent during one of my visits to the Art Institute of Chicago a couple years ago. The painting I attached was one I posted in the name the painting game. Did you happen to see the Impressionist exhibit at the Kimbell a few months ago? Four Sargent paintings were sent over to the Amon Carter Museum as part of the tour. Here's my post in the Art Thread:

    Thank you for your input of my poem.

    Thanks for comments Qimi. I think you mistook the little boy as my niece because of his dress.
    In fact he was wearing a traditional dress called shalwar kamiz.

    Here is another picture of him.

    Liked the poem, especially the last stanza. Thanks for the pointer.

Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout

by qimissung on 12-15-2012 at 01:13 AM
I live in the United States of America, and we had another school shooting today. With horror I listened to the news reports that a gunman had gone into an elementary school and killed 27 people, 20 of them “children between the ages of 5 and 10.” And I listened tiredly and wearily to the usual rhetoric of the newscast without end as they recounted the “worst school shooting in an elementary school.”
I guess they are doing the best they can, but you simply can’t put a qualifier or adjective

In Memoriam

by qimissung on 04-03-2012 at 11:05 PM
One of my former students-he graduated last year-was shot and killed last night around 10 o'clock.

He had just finished playing a game of basketball and was sitting in a car on a dark street, with his cousin. They were waiting for his cousin's ride when another car drove up. It was someone they knew and they argued over a girl his cousin had been seeing. The young man in the car pulled out a gun and shot them. Victor was shot two times in the back. He was treated at a nearby hospital,

The Anger and The Anguish

by qimissung on 01-04-2012 at 01:24 PM
I read several good books in 2011. I read "Candide," "The Crying of Lot 49", "Housekeeping," "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius," and "The Dubliners." I read others, but these I read last fall and today it is of "The Dubliners" I speak.

I've been wanting to read something by Joyce. Eventually I hope to read "Ulysses." I think that might be akin to saying that someday I'd like to climb Mount Everest, for

The Bird's Nest

by qimissung on 12-27-2011 at 02:20 PM
looking at it I knew it was different
a bird's nest
full of hope and fear
and the cavalier fulsomeness of life
the blind ability to get up each day under the weight of it all
to go out every day believing you were one of the masses
dressed in the same uniform
believing the same things
that god is good
that love will find a way
believing or hoping to believe that
the others would not notice your vampiric differences

I acquire some books

by qimissung on 12-04-2011 at 07:13 PM
I got up yesterday morning, a Saturday, around 5:45. I washed my face and dressed and walked to my car in the dark. I stopped by my local Starbucks and treated myself to a tall mocha.

I then made my way down Midway to 635; from there to Central Expressway from which I exited at Northwest Highway. My destination was the Half-Price Books located there, or rather the warehouse that I knew was located near it.

Once I arrived I noticed, somewhat to my chagrin, that there
