Shadow Play is Serious Work

A  L  O  H  A !
 "There are 
infinite shadings 
of light and shadows 
and colors... 
it's an extraordinarily 
subtle language. 
Figuring out how to 
speak that language 
is a lifetime job."
                            Conrad Hall

" Find beauty not only 
in the thing itself 
but in the pattern 
of the shadows, 
the light and dark 
which that thing 
provides. "
                               Junichiro Tanizaki

"The hardest thing
to learn in life
 is which bridge
 to cross 
and which 
to burn."
        David Russell

Your Visit
is what makes this 
F U N!

Thanks for allowing us to reflect on the shades and nuances of life and the bridges taken and bridges burned with dancing flames that cast shadows of might have beens and what ifs upon our lives...

Burn enough of them and you'll quit simply because you're tired of the heat on the ass.

Hey, I've seen beauty in the seemingly ugly. How about that.

Such a wise ability: to know which bridges to cross and which to burn!

Charles Gramlich said...

I try not to burn bridges, but some I should have burned.

I love it when my shadow follows me, and sometimes I turn around and chase it myself! Hehehehe!
