While the association with my avatar may be subliminal, it was not intended. My daughter is enrolled in a photography course through the California Conservatory of the Arts. She was assigned the task to capture different moods in both parents or two family members/friends. Moods were anger, pensive, frustration, boredom. This was my frustration, and I disclaim that I cannot act.

My daughter shoots almost exclusively in black and white. When I showed her the message from Spooky she thought it was really cool. She had not seen my avatar in a long time and the pose and monochromatic mood were coincidental. Really.

However, now that you mention it, I think it might be fun to try. So does she. So I will give it a go and see what shakes out. Closest to genius that I certainly will ever get....

Here is another from the same sitting for her assignment...

Is that your 'wanker of the year' pose?

After an all nighter, the first day of 2008. Taken from behind the House of Blues, Atlantic City, NJ. Not enough drinks and a cell phone camera, bad combo.

And is this the before or after shot of you visiting the casino?

This was daybreak after the show. Mr. and Mrs. WSS? unfortunately had to leave soon after the concert.

After the beating I took gambling, the sunrise was a beautiful diversion.

A pretty true approximation of my current state-oddly there is a portrait on the stairs that resists aging.

I much more prefer this one from a long ago time before cell phones existed.

Mood, I am with you. That odd portrait at the top of the stairs that shows no wrinkles, gray or the ravages of time. This probably better expresses my feelings as I approach 60:


"I Look Into My Glass"

I LOOK into my glass,
And view my wasting skin,
And say, "Would God it came to pass
My heart had shrunk as thin!"

For then, I, undistrest
By hearts grown cold to me,
Could lonely wait my endless rest
With equanimity.

But Time, to make me grieve,
Part steals, lets part abide;
And shakes this fragile frame at eve
With throbbings of noontide.

Thomas Hardy
