    I am not a sink

    May 14, 2024. This is not a sink. That said, it's not clear what it is. It's located in the Thai Express near where I work and where I had lunch today, on the counter where we empty our garbage and stack our trays. It serves no purpose other than to n...

    A Room Becomes A Turntable

    For today’s Daily Create, the prompt was to “remix your world” using an image. I had a photo of an empty basement, where my band used to practice, and when I did a little tinkering in LunaPic, the room became a turntable (by accident). And of course, a turntable requires some scratching. Peace (and sound), […]

The one above is from the Daily Haiku prompts off Mastodon, where today’s prompt was “moth.” This second is inspired by a poem shared by Terry, along with some explanations and possibilities and the concept of a “silence map” took hold in my mind. A third poem […]
