Seasonal Songs..Uncut December 6, 2013

Somehow I think that some lyrics of many famous Christmas songs are not as well-known as others.

Let’s sing some now, shall we?

Deck the Halls: Uncut

Deck the halls with tacky bling bling

fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

I wrote this song for you to sing sing,

fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

Now we drink with merry pleasure

While we laugh ’bout nasty weather

fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la.

 

Or how about this one?

 

Oh, Christmas Tree: Uncut

Oh Christmas tree

Oh Christmas tree,

Your tackiness delights us.

Oh Christmas tree

Oh Christmas tree,

Your tackiness delights us.

Your costly lights oh how they shine

I cannot pay that bill of mine!

Oh Christmas tree

Oh Christmas tree,

Your tackiness delights us.

Or this classic:

 

Up On the Housetop: Uncut

Up on the housetop,

reindeer slide

tired of pulling a fat man’s ride

Huffing and puffing and needing a break

Wishing he had  eaten one less steak.

 

 

Having Fun December 30, 2012

It is cold today. This is a great day to curl up with a good book or watch a movie on the tube. My preference, of course, is to curl up with my computer and edit my photos.  I love going back through old ones and discovering a different beauty that I hadn’t noticed before.

Photography has become my newest way to express myself. I am very much an amateur, but I am okay with that. I know what I like, so I take pictures of it. All I have is my little digital Nikon and a free online editing program, but it suits me for now. I don’t have the drive to make jewelry or complete paintings at this point in time; I hope I feel those creative urges again. As long as I can write and produce some visual type of work, I am a happy soul.

Most of my posts are on my other website. I don’t write anything, except the titles, because I want my followers to have their own sense of the photograph. Many of my photos I take because I felt some feeling or mood in the frame, but I don’t know if that comes across to others or not. So, no words, just photos so it can evoke an emotion in you. I save my words for this blog!

Here are a few for you to (hopefully) enjoy.

Lightness and Dark May 1, 2012

There is something fabulous about the sun shining through a dark forest. The deep, muted shades of green  accented by the sun-speckled brighter greens cast beautiful patterns. Each shade makes you appreciate the other. Without the light, there is only darkness. Without the dark, there is only lightness. We all need a little darkness and a little lightness in our lives. I  am still searching for that balance, and for the ability to truly appreciate both. That, my friends, is my journey.
