A company shouldn’t get addicted to being shiny, because shiny doesn’t last.
Whither goest thou, America, in they shiny car in the night?
When hope is not pinned wriggling onto a shiny image or expectation, it sometimes floats forth and opens.
Here are more “Shiny” things.

My weekly hundred words.
The multiple rolls down the mountainside were over instantly.
The rest, an endless dream. Somehow escaping the smashed car. Crawling up what seemed a cliff. In shock, shivering, as we waited for a passing car in the night. The doctor saying there were no mirrors. My friends looking quickly away. The drive to the city. Plastic surgery. The metal holding my re-shaped nose taped below raccoon eyes.
In the airport, my alien head subjected to averted gazes, I vowed to never look askance at the deformed, the challenged, the different. Theirs was forever. I would heal.
My friend, the driver…uninjured.

I wrote this a few days ago as I was cleaning up the yard. Very different meaning tonight. Both meanings apply. It might be appropriate in the US that a definite chill has arrived tonight as tomorrow is tax day.
Clings tenaciously to earth
Hides burgeoning life
“Spring is the time of year when it is summer in the sun and winter in the shade.”
~ Charles Dickens, “Great Expectations”
(Or summer in the morning and winter at night.)

When you start taking photos, you begin to see things differently, to see potential photos everywhere. Bring your focus close to you and you’ll find a plethora of beautiful photos waiting to be recorded. This week’s Phoneography Challenge (or, to give it all its gravitas, the Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge) is “Macro“, just the place for those photos. I looked in my glass and in my mixing bowl and came up with the following pictures. Any editing was done on Picasa 3, my newest toy.
