“Chloe”

A new addition to the sculpture garden at the VMFA here in Richmond, VA.

“Chloe” by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa (1955).

“Chloe” is an ever changing presence. The light, clouds, sun, and time of day change her, showing many faces and moods.

You will meet a different Chloe at each visit and even as you walk around her. Mesmerizing.

Another year old.
If one is lucky this will continue.
More aches,
more pains coming unannounced,
over hearing whispers about friends and friends’ parents.
We are not the same
and never will be again,
but that is ok
that is the way it just
happens.

Just to be clear…

Ok, just to be clear you cannot believe anything that the current administration says.

If you even think for a second, “that doesn’t sound so bad” go back to sleep or smack yourself awake and stand up.

They are liars and will do anything for money.

Greed is their god,

power is their game.

The Flag is coming down…

Posted in Politics, Writers & Writing with tags , , on January 19, 2017 by kozmicdogz

I am a flag guy. We had a flag pole in the front yard for as long as I can remember. My father was a WWII veteran spending almost 4 years in Australia and New Guinea. We flew the flag at holidays. We flew the flag for birthdays. we flew the flag for visitors. We flew the flag every chance we got.

We followed the rules. We didn’t let it touch the ground and my father taught us how to fold it properly into a triangle. I flew the flag for a full year after the attack on 9/11.

The United States flag is a strong symbol of this country. It has not always been a popular symbol for everyone and has represented some pretty awful things over the course of its history. But I see it as a symbol for all of the people of this country and I claim this flag as mine too.

This past election day I put the flag up at my house. My intention was just to fly it that one day, but because of the outcome of the election and I have flown it 24×7 since. I will be taking it down sometime tonight January 19th, the last day of President Obama’s second term.

It will remain in the closet for the next 4 years.

Although I may not be able to stand it and I may fly it once a year on June 14th, for Flag Day.

January not January

Half moon rising
Northern blue skies with
fog in the South
Dark clouded front moving east
and the birds are scrounging.
Feels more like spring
than the middle of winter.
