The Final Post on TRIOS: the New Whitney Museum, Cork, the Lake at Annaghmakerrig

It is the day after Thanksgiving. Snap out of your food comas, everyone!

Self must say, this year’s Thanksgiving was brilliant. Self ate more than she’s ever eaten in her life. Her friend was up at 6 a.m. because she and her daughter are going to the mall. But self has an on-line class to get caught up on, so she chose to stay behind.

Before delving into her student pieces, however, self peruses her archives so that she can make one last post on WordPress Photo Challenge this week:  TRIO.

Self took the first picture in a museum she considers one of the best in the entire world: The new Whitney Museum. On exhibit right now: a retrospective on Frank Stella.

The second picture is from one of self’s happy places: Café Paradiso in Cork, Ireland.

And finally, a picture of the Mother of All Happy Places, a place that signifies peace, happiness, mindfulness, inspiration: the lake in the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Annaghmakerrig.

Fan Fiction: Synth, Chapter 2

KTNS-12 is an android, only two days old, when Alma Coin decides to try negative reinforcement to get her compliance to a command and slaps her.

KTNS-12 doesn’t give an inch.

The story is told in first-person, and the writing is wonderful.

No, I say with my body. Back off.

Alarm flashes through those colorless eyes as Coin realizes her mistake, and instinct keeps my gaze locked on hers until she turns away in defeat.

I will not be a pawn, I decide. I am a Queen in my own right, standing alone but proud on my side of the board. Or, at least, I will be in time, once I have experience to match knowledge.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
