All images COPYRIGHT 2013 SCOTT of WHOKNOWSWHEREORWHEN. My visage has been appropriated a number of times as followers have been kind enough to let me know as they've seen it pop up and it's not flattering. Hssssssss.
The thing that has fascinated me most in life is Time, the passage of it and my relationship to it as I age.
I was born in 1957, and as each year goes by, I find out more events that took place in that splendiferous year: the first artificial satellite was put into orbit by the Commies and set off a panic here....the first Pink
Flamingo lawn ornament rolled off the assembly line, and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" was first published, by Dr. Seuss, Burt Bacharach joined with lyracist Hal David to create some wonderful songs and five days after I was born, John Lennon was introduced to Paul McCartney...kinda neat, eh?
Things that matter most to me are family, close friends, my kitty kats, plants, art, making art....laughing and making friends laugh, continuing to find peace of mind and working on self-esteem....and I see so many posts of affirmations on Tumblr esp by young folks and I wish them luck with this one....it's probably more of a life-long journey than something we magically land upon.
I love the plant world, sometimes I think, as if I actually was one. They're the other major form of life we share this planet with, but very few treat them with the dignity and respect they deserve.
We hear of animal rights, thank God, but not enough of plant rights.
I remind people: we need them, for the air we breathe and the food we eat, they basically don't need us.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
"Where or When" is a song by the team of Rogers and Hart. Lorenz Hart was a gifted lyricist, who happened to be gay, and wrote lyrics to some of the most beautiful love songs I've ever heard. The wonderful melodies were composed by Richard Rogers, before he teamed up with Hammerstein.
Negative Connotation: a liberal environmentalist the conservative right hates. A term conservatives bandy about to describe someone as harmless by their doe-eyed love of nature but dangerous ‘cause they’re too biased and dumb to weigh both sides of an environmental issue. And they do throw it around like mud, and it hurts each time I read it.
(My) Positive Connotation: a flattering term used to describe someone who cherishes and respects nature, in part due to their knowledge that we need plants to be able to breathe and eat—-they really don’t need us. Maybe we should explain that to the many idiots that still don’t believe in climate change, the part, at least, that humans have contributed.
Me last summer hugging a 300 (?) year old White Oak at a family member’s farm to prove a point! What a beauty. And all it’s seen in its lifetime. All those summer storms, rains, snowfalls and sunsets. Amazing.
