I didn't take many photographs over the winter, and so there haven't been any updates to the photography on this site for a while. But now that spring is here, along with the re-emergence of bugs and flowers, I have the camera back out. I've added a new set of thumbnails along the top of the page, all from this set
of spring flowers (which you'll find listed on my photography page
, for future reference).
Derek has some oddly similar photos
up himself. I guess there is only a couple of ways to photograph a crocus, huh?
In a completely unrelated, yet apparently similar note, I find this sentence from a write-up
on crocuses (crocii?) very funny:
Very few early-flowering bulbous, tuberous and cormous plants are so massively planted as the Crocus.
Doesn't sound like it's talking about flowers, does it?
From Once Again, the City Beckons
, a short article on the current trend toward urban living:
Unfortunately, immigrants without options and yuppies without children cannot by themselves revitalize our cities. Only ordinary families with ordinary incomes can do that. If New York -- or Boston or San Francisco or Chicago -- is to return to the glory of its past, then average men and women must choose to remain in the city after they have children.
That's us! Once we get to NY, my ordinary family (we actually have 2.1 kids!) will single-handedly revitalize NY!
When I'm really busy, I feel guilty about posting here on glish. When I still have email from last week to respond to, I'm afraid I'll make enemies if I don't answer that email before taking the time to post here. When I have windows to paint, porches to repair, and webistes to build, how can I justify spending time on this narcissistic shrine to myself? He asked as he decided to go up and see what's on tv.
