John Waters took the stage of the 1928 Byrd Theatre shortly after 8pm and did not stop talking and pacing for almost two hours. Waters shared his love and hate relationship with Christmas, christmas presents, mangers, film, music, and our modern society. Waters said he was tired of gays coming out and he was going to come in again. He discussed some new projects and his disdain for old boring people and how hard it was to be an outlaw these days.

Waters performed to a packed audience of adoring fans. The December 20, 2017 was the 17th stop for Waters on his 18 stop Christmas tour. Waters also performed at the Byrd Theatre in 2015.

3:00 am
Dreams of times that never came to pass
Fortunately
But familiar folk all around
Keeping me up
Worrying me just the same
Not real
Thank god.

This is the ship which my father took from the US to Australia in February 1942. He would not return home until May 1945.

The SS Malolo was built in 1927 as a luxury liner which sailed from San Francisco to LA to Honolulu. It was pressed into service as a troop transport ship from 1942 to 1946.

Pumpkin Patch

Timeless pumpkin patch.
Pickin’
sortin’
Hot in the sun,
cool in the shade.
Miles from home
    transported to another

      time.

October!

From Richmond to West Virginia and back again

Posted in Photography, Politics, Richmond with tags on September 27, 2017 by kozmicdogz

On our recent trip from Richmond Va to West Virginia we did not see any confederate flags, or pumper stickers, signs or any other tributes to the current president.

I thought maybe the tide was turning,
but that is yet to be determined.

September

The crepe myrtle intensifies,
The hydrangeas turn to rust,
and Dogwoods turn orange and brittle
autumn is upon us;

although still warming afternoons
the summer slips away
and the sun starts sleeping earlier
each and everyday.
