A Photo a Week Challenge: Horizontal Lines

Self didn’t realize how long it’s been since she joined Nancy Merrill’s Photo a Week Challenge! She’s glad she can correct the situation today. The theme: HORIZONTAL LINES.

Twofer: Stories # 13 and # 14, The Big Book of Classic Fantasy

These were the dullest stories ever. How does self know? It took her a full day to read “Feathertop,” and now self is stuck reading “Master Zacharius,” which is about a clockmaker in Geneva.

“Master Zacharius,” by Jules Verne (!!!), is divided into chapters (Oh no!) and the most momentous and scary things happen at night (No, not really) and the dilemma is: should Master Zacharius give his beautiful and virginal daughter Gerande to an ugly, wizened old man? What to do, what to do?

SHUT UP, give her to the old man!

There’s some nonsense about a clock not being allowed to strike midnight because Satan . . .

Whoa! By judicious skimming, self has reached THE END OF THIS STORY!

The next one is by Louisa May Alcott, and even though this one will probably not slay, because it’s about the Frost King, and self doesn’t think fairy tales are Louisa May Alcott’s specialty, it is, mercifully, short.

Stay cool, dear blog readers. Stay cool.

Photographing Public Art Challenge (PPAC) # 5: Mendocino Art Center

Self is still playing catch-up with the Photographing Public Art Challenge (PPAC) co-hosted by Cee Neuner and Marsha Ingrao (It’s now up to #7).

For her post today, self is looking back at the time she taught writing at the Mendocino Art Center. She did that for a few years. It was A LOT of fun.

The Center, on Little Lake Street, houses artists across genre: textile artists, sculptors, ceramic artists, photographers. The front garden and the buildings are packed with visual art:
