Warhol's Lizards We

A  L  O  H  A !

" I'm not a teacher: 

only a fellow-traveller

 of whom 

you asked the way. "

 George Bernard Shaw 

" Why one man 
rather than another?
 It was odd. -

- You find yourself involved
 with a fellow
 for life -

- just because he was 
the one that you met 
when you were nineteen. "
 Simone De Beauvoir 

“One should either

 be a work of art,

or wear a work of art.” 

 Oscar Wilde 

" I really believe
 there are things
 nobody would see
 if I didn't
 photograph them. "

Diane Arbus 

Ah, Chameleon days! 
We all change coloration, 
emotional shading,
many times in a day, 
a life,
as we try to blend 
with others,
with the environment.

Protective coloration,
Flamboyant display,
I've done it all.
But sometimes,
as short as a glympse,
or over a lifetime:
let your flag fly!

Show Your True Colors.
Those who matter
will smile,or salute!

                       Warmly, Your Friend cloudia

...or give you the finger because they think they matter, which they do in a general "well the whole of humanity wouldn't be the same with one less asshole in it."

You must be Arbus' cousin, as I've seen many things I wouldn't have noticed without your cruisin' camera! (Da gecko's been partying a tad too much.) DrumMajor

I’m with de Beauvoir, it doesn’t seem fair at all.


De Georges Bernard Shaw à Diane Arbus, la route est longue qui en fait voir de toutes les couleurs à ton magnifique animal de compagnie. Bel été à toi.

I am now trying to work out whether I am a work of art or whether I am wearing one Cloudia!

My world is a colorful one ... like the chameleon , it is just a natural shift with the surroundings. I have always admired their natural quality .

Kay said...
