the shed: pitchfork & tub

I took this image perusing through the shed. Thought nothing much about it. Today, I decided it has a rustic, rural charm and the pitchfork is, bar none, one of the best implements devised by a peasant woman. But, trying to find a decent quote or poem about a pitchfork pushed me off into a netherworld, or is it the mainstream world?…when I looked into pitchfork. That’s one contemporary realm that made me feel I was Rip awakening to a new reality!  I did find ‘the difference between heaven and hell is how is on which end of the pitchfork’…not exactly the clever message I was looking for. Maybe I should have gone with the wash tub.

Transitions can be subtle…

The image below doesn’t seem to depict much in the way of being volatile or powerful. Yet, this image was as the weather transitioned from a few gusts of wind to, for the next several hours, sustained forty mile per hour winds with gusts pushing 70 mph in Portland and at 90 mph on the Oregon Coast. The front pushed up the Oregon Coast into Washington, skirting Portland, with nary a raindrop in Portland and temps in the low 60’s. 100,0000 residences were without power; traffic signals went out snarling rush hour/holiday shoppers traffic; and in one tragic moment a tree fell killing an 11 year old boy in a car and injuring his mother. Not a huge weather event, but the transition below was a perfect image of darkness over taking light.

Birds on the Wire….

‘Oh like a bird on the wire,  Like a drunk in a midnight choir, I have tried in my way to be free.’ Leonard Cohen

Two Views of a Staircase….

“Like drugs and alcohol, stairs take you up and stairs bring you down. Stairs are neither in one place nor another. They bridge the vertical. Stairs have no allegiance. Stairs live in a private world of the abstruse and mystical. Don’t thrust them. More people die falling down stairs than on airplanes.”  Chloe Thurlow

“However tiny or ramshackle they may be, don’t ever despise the stairs which take you up to the higher levels!”  Mehmet Murat ildan
