SoCS: The Organ of it All

Organ. Hmmmmm… Linda G. Hill requests I use the word organ in my post. I wonder if she smelled Natasha’s chicken livers cooking the other night. I hate liver, an organ meat. I know this because I keep trying liver and it continues to taste disgusting. I will eat chicken hearts and gizzards, but liver? No. I’ll stick with my bacon and organic chicken eggs. In other news, I’m officially on vacation. I left the organization that delivers my paycheck atRead more

One-Liner Wednesday: Bridges

I was only able to use the trail once last fall before the weather turned cold and the morningsRead more

It’s your turn now: for this week’s challenge, bring together two of your photos into dialogue. What do they say to each other? A conversation ensues between bike and board… “I’m here, can you feel me?” Why, yes, I can.   The board engages the trail… “Will you hold us together for this bike?” Why, yes, I will.   The trail talks to the tree… “Are you able to show the way?” No doubt, able I am.Read more
