La Ronde

A Structuralist Tale: Six single pictures that may be seen independently from one another. Yet they are connected by a ‘structural’ idea, a formal rule. The story has no beginning, and no end: Pick any picture you want as a starting point. And you can also read the sequence backwards. Shuffling the pictures would not work though. Does this provide narrative? It is up to you to decide.

You’ve got a (festive) friend in me

A new pal arrived this week, and he’s been making himself useful by helping me set up the Christmas decorations. Here’s the six steps Woody took for spreading Christmas cheer!

Step one: Untangle the lights! What a lifesaver!
Step two: Hang baubles!
Step three: Fall off the table and get saved by the tree (Don’t try this at home!)
Step four: Find candy canes (one of the four main food groups!) No tree is complete without piles of them! (Eating candy canes is optional at this step!)
Step five: Play around whilst on a sugar high from too many candy canes!
Step six: End the tree decorating with hugs from bendy Santa!

Anomalous Encounters

Anomalous Encounters
by Joseph Cowlishaw

Deep and old - creaky wood
Windy voices of childhood
Shadows play and make a scene
Crunching breaking through ravine
Lungs burning... running, waiting
Ambushed by a bizarre moan
Crushed under a furry stone
Something eerie blurs past
Blackness sparks - eyes of last

Happiness is a butterfly

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. – Nathaniel Hawthorne

Ace & The Dame

It was an ordinary Thursday, but she was no ordinary dame…
“Strange… These clues just aren’t adding up…”
She was a mystery… and I was starting to fall for her.
“So… it’s comes to this.”
“Guess this means our Friday night’s canceled, eh, doll?”
She was no ordinary dame… *sigh*
