Lets not watch t.v…..

IMGP6610“Never try to outstubborn a cat.”
Robert A. Heinlein, Time Enough for Love

When my cats aren’t happy, I’m not happy. Not because I care about their mood but because I know they’re just sitting there thinking up ways to get even.

Percy Bysshe Shelley

Lets kick!


This was a while back when I trained at my first Tae Kwon Do club. The club was an old boxing gym that the instructor had taken over. He got some of the students to decorate,wire and repair the place a little. I was handed a paintbrush. I painted a sign and then I got this piece of hardboard in front of me, 4′ by 8′, and a brush and two pots of emulsion. This is a picture of the instructor doing a flying kick………..

I don’t know where this is now  I just found this photo of it but I quite like the dynamics. ( the photo is from an old slide so very slightly overexposed and a bit marked.)

So still

As still as the stuffed bird in the museum that will not fly again


 and as still as the air was around the seed pods before a gust would shake their composition and send them elsewhere OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

then this Robin Hood like chap was standing so still until money was thrown at him, an exercise in extreme patience and control
