A genius idea from Laura and Jeff for making moving fun or atleast bring a smile to your face when lifting heavy boxes.  A new brilliant business venture in the making perhaps?…

park view: big spotted dog

 

Stumbled upon this pic recently.  It was a Union Square Farmer’s market find.  I don’t know my dogs well, but it is best described as a Great Dane Dalmation mix.  It was beautiful and one of the biggest dogs I’ve ever seen.  A great animal!  If I could have only gotten his face in the pic.  Where does someone keep a dog this big in the city??

wild hearts…

 

Inspired by the horse diver, Sonora Webster Carver, who made horse diving popular in Atlantic City around the 1930s.  Sonora became blind in 1931 upon impact of the water which detached her retinas.  She continued to dive in the show for 11 years despite being blind.  Images above are from the horse diving tower at the steel pier in Atlantic City.  I always think about how much I love the movie “Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken” which was based on events in her life.

white rabbit_jefferson airplane

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don’t do anything at all
Go ask Alice, when she’s ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you’re going to fall
Tell ’em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
To call Alice, when she was just small

When the men on the chessboard get up
And tell you where to go
And you’ve just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low
Go ask Alice, I think she’ll know

When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And the red queen’s off with her head
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head, feed your head

(“White Rabbit” by Jefferson Airplane)
