Friday's Feast and Obama

I hope someone's reading here. Sometimes I wonder. But then, it's mostly for me, anyway! The photo is a cool tree in Lee's woods that had been struck by lightning.

Friday's Feast

Appetizer: Invent a new flower; give it a name and describe it.

I grow weary of this forced creativity.

Soup: Name someone whom you think has a wonderful voice.

Linda Ronstadt. It's perfect.

Soup: On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how clean do you keep your car?

8. The inside is nice and clean, and I keep it that way. I have a hard time getting it washed often enough, so it has been covered by oak pollen. Rain has washed off some today, I hope, while it's resting at the Park and Ride place.

Main Course: How do you feel about poetry?

Poetic.

Dessert: What was the last person/place/thing you took a picture of?

A ball of yarn. I took more stash photos a few days ago, but have not cataloged them.

Obama

Judy, a colleague from my past "career" who usually posts pretty photos of flowers from her coastal New Jersey garden on her blog, linked to this really nice article on Barak Obama today. So, I'm sharing. Read it. It gives you a small bit of optimism in a rather pessimistic time in history (like, aren't they all?)

I agree about the fake creativity aspect.

In other news, I caught a cute CNN story about Obama’s appeal with the younger crowd, toddlers in this case. It seems that his name ranks right up there beside "mama" with the prelingual crowd. Something about the way it sounds....

I read your posts, too, even though I rarely comment. Sometimes I don't get here for a while but then I'll catch up.
