Very proud of this article.  I have one more article coming out with Laurel Highlands Magazine.  A little sad I will not be working for them anymore, kinda hard to write about things in the Laurel Highlands of PA when I am living in the flatlands of Florida.  I am highly appreciative of my friend Herb Speers who did the photography for this piece along with the next one.   I am also extremely happy that Herb is still doing freelance photography for the magazine.

Christmas

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Hey Let's Go! Calvin, Hobbes ...

                                            “CALVIN: This whole Santa Claus thing just doesn’t make sense. Why all the secrecy? Why all the mystery? If the guy exists                                                   why doesn’t he ever show himself and prove it? And if he doesn’t exist what’s the meaning of all this?

                                             HOBBES: I dunno. Isn’t this a religious holiday? 

                                            CALVIN:  Yeah, but actually, I’ve got the same questions about God.”

Patient

Edith Sitwell, eccentric genius - Telegraph

I am patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it.   Edith Sitwell

Dame Edith Louisa Sitwell DBE (7 September 1887 – 9 December 1964) was a British poet and critic and the eldest of the three literary Sitwells.

Like her brothers Osbert and Sacheverell, Edith reacted badly to her eccentric, unloving parents, and lived for much of her life with her governess. She never married, but became passionately attached to the gay Russian painter Pavel Tchelitchew, and her home was always open to London’s poetic circle, to whom she was unfailingly generous and helpful.

Sitwell published poetry continuously from 1913, some of it abstract and set to music. With her dramatic style and exotic costumes, she was sometimes labelled a poseur, but her work was praised for its solid technique and painstaking craftsmanship.
