The Shore (A Poem)

My latest piece, hope you like it.

The Shore

I’ve been to many places

But this is where I have to be

I’ve encountered many faces

But yours is the only one I need to see

There’s a desperation in this world

That needs healing at its core

So may you be its soothing ocean

As it rolls gently to the shore



Another Fantastic Social Site for Artists

It’s been around for years and has a bit of an old-school reputation but as a person who recently signed up with Reddit, I can tell you that it has a lot of communities to benefit artists. You should check it out.

The Stunning Work of Heather Crawford

While I enjoy working with photography, graphic design and literature, there are some artistic ventures that I stay away from other than for the purposes of silly fun. One of those is drawing.

That being the case, I have a real appreciation for anyone who has a true talent in this skill. That’s why when I recently learned about the work of Heather Crawford, I was so impressed that I got a commissioned piece done and will likely request more as gifts and for home decor projects.

Please take a moment to check out her work on both her Facebook Page and official site. You’ll be glad you did.

Shooting a Video with a World War 1 Lens (100 years old)

It’s always too to see art and technology from two different eras come together. I found this video posted on a social media site and thought it was too cool not to share with CD readers.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

Off To The Side (A Poem)

He stands off to the side
The left side
She stands off to the side
Just like him
They like it there
Away from the rest

They are angry
They are frustrated
And melancholic
And enraged

Whether the best of times
Or the worst
Always the same

Their hope is in hopelessness
Their joy in misery
It’s all they know
And this what they crave

It must be
The most pitied of existences
