Sunday March 27, 2011 I looked out my window, saw this sky and knew I had my photo for the day. Five minutes later, the clouds were dispersed.


Monday March 28, 2011 Lauren and me out-and-about, I held the camera around her, taking the shot straight down.

 
Tuesday March 29, 2011 The 'before' and the 'after' of one half of this Armour that's located in our livingroom. It is much better now. Next month I do the other half.


Wednesday March 30, 2011 March books After John Allen Paulos's (a mathematician) 'Irreligious' & Joseph Campbell's 'The Inner Reaches of Outer Space', both difficult books for me, I decided to lighten up with: the poet James Schulyer's 'Alfred & Guinevere', the story of a very important moment in the lives of two precocious siblings; Jonathan Lethem's 'The Disappointment Artist', a number of essays describing several of his lifelong obsessions, everything from the movie, 'The Searches' to an abandoned subway station in NYC; E. M. Forrester's 'Marrice' which was written in the 19-teens but not published until the 1970's so can you guess it's topic?; Paul Johnson's 'The Renaissance' which is relatively self-explanatory; and finally, David Levithan's 'The Realm of Possibility' which is a truly wonderful book, written from the POV's of 20 highschool students through some prose but mostly poetry. You may know Levitahn from his 'Boy Meets Boy', a book I adore.


Thursday March 31, 2011 I've made an exception for this day, four years since my dad died, by including a photograph taken by my daughter, Lauren for the prompt 'Dreamy' from her photography class, not the one she used though.

 
Friday April 01, 2011 The 'before' and 'after' at the Spaghetti Factory.


Saturday April 02, 2011 Lauren is already down the hall getting her facial while I, obviously, am getting bored while waiting to have my eyelashes done.

Flickr has so much more

I like the before and after shots -- I got a good chuckle out of the second one.

Oh cool, I'm glad you like those, especially the first set helps me remember that I actually accomplished something last week and the second of our very good time out and about.

I love the sky one and "Dreamy" -- both cool shots.

thank you. I'm glad I was able to include a photograph from Lauren with 'Dreamy', it is my 365 and she is a large part of that.

Beautiful pics hon!
The "Dreamy" one is wonderful!

thank you and I appreciate your kind thoughts.

Did you like Lethem's book? I read Motherless Brooklyn about an orphan who grows up to be a small time hood and has Tourette's. I thought it was brilliant, the things Lethem had him yelling out. I also read one short story of his about two teens who stalk a writer because they are in love with the sentences he crafts. I like the sound of the Disappointment Artist.

You look great in Dreamy! I love the picture.

I did like Lethem's book very much, especially the nonfiction aspect of this one. The other I've read is "You Don't Love Me Yet' about a rock band, also very good, a novel. The two you describe, especially the short story, sounds very interesting, I love the idea of kids stalking a writer.

And thanks for liking the pic, we had a great time doing our little photo shoot.
