Hat Daze by daw
To write with the hat on or off is a question to ask oneself everyday.  I even have two other sites devoted to types of days, Hat Daze for the normal writing with your hat on or off and Bad Hat Daze for the days that you just have to have a go at a subject and don't know if it is a hat day or not...

Into the Lights-photo by daw

The Room
The blackbird, red of wing flew as my eyes heard its call: "over, over." And she would not return. And she threatened with her claws.    She sang the song fierce. She sang the song stabbing, through her partner's skin.    And my eyes heard but the soul still could not...

Why is it that when I take a photo of myself I turn to the left?  When I used a mirror effect I chose the left side of my face to duplicate and I no longer had a round face.  Why is it I always hold my head to the left, my mouth droops to the left, and I taught math for 32 years to the left?  But...

Being in a Normal Transition
When I was young I thought it perfectly normal to want a room in the attic.  My mood swings were normal, I was "just that age."  It's normal, my allergies are really bad this time of the year.  Then the swing kept swinging and the allergies were year round and the attic was any small...

Sizz...ling,  my brain walks back through time. am I there, or are the arms of the octapus ride still spinning me?    I place my hat, to connect the wires; too dazed to smile, well-done, retired.

When I turned 50 I started to have un-birthdays.  By the time I was distastefully having my 40th all over againI wondered, why!  Then, like Bob, when I turned 39 I knew it was all worth it.   Oh, have you taken the Real Age Test yet; 60 can be the new 40 if you try.
