1311


We chatted this morning, the Nalis St James book club, with author Balkrishna Naipaul. He told us he has nine published novels to date, ' Arc on the Horizon' is his first novel. Chatting with this author, time seemed to just slip away, as we entered the dimension of a man, broad in spectrum, and tiny in the universal scheme of reality; i was so extremely happy to be in his presence, especially since i'm reading at present his first novel.

songs of morning birds
his plan divined in chorus
shapers of today

i listen to the heatbeat
of dreams awakened in sunrise

Series Picture Post Cards #34; revisit Picture Post Cards #33

They seem to be everywhere, holding their trophies for distribution, stopping passersby to engage in instructional chat. Responses they receive are not always kind, yet they keep at it, day in day out. Who are they? Salvation they state is written in the pages of a holy book. Are there keys to the locked gates at Paradise?

A HALLOWEEN SPELL

Her vacant stare notices, as she passes the building site,
She lacks nothing a halloween witch preoccupied might,
List to her amalgam of scary preparations;
Fence, brick, gravel, trash, tentacles, everything on sight;
Spellbinding mouth will cheat the balance of gravity this night

rough curves of pumpkins...
market vendors exchange
notes for coins

(playing cards inset, from google)

Many a group, would choose to put aside Sunday to get together to have fun, to lime; and many of these limes are All Fours Limes'. I have played card games, for as long as i can remember; with family, relatives, friends, and co-workers. Uppermost in my mind however are those lunch-time and after work games, when friendly competition games of All Fours were played. The thrill of 'hanging the opponent's Jack' which was followed by loud uproars, and sassy picong

Sunday Savvy...
all those silly gestures of
the All Fours Game
