I have long admired the frenetic “Drip Period” art of Jackson Pollock, whose work captivated the American art world during the late 40s and early 50s. He and his art became enormously famous overnight after a LIFE magazine interview in 1949.
More than half a century later Pollock continues to influence and inspire. TV commercials, print advertising and younger artists employ some of his methods.
Somehow I must be channeling his artistic soul because I see the influence in just about all things. So much so that I have begun to document the ‘sightings’ with my Smartphone. Here are some examples. The titles are self explanatory.
I would like to express gratitude to the ‘Guardian Angel’ who discovered my motorcycle keys left in the ignition. They turned them in and then the keys were returned to me. It would have been a long walk home without them.
So, have you ever been blessed by the honesty and goodness of someone? A guardian angel perhaps? Share your story if you have one.
Two wheels tomorrow and the next day and the next and so on for the entire month. At least that is part of my plan to celebrate BIKE MONTH. This Wednesday (May 8) I will be taking part in the Mall to Mall ride — from Manchester Center to the Fulton Mall in downtown Fresno. The event is being put on by the good folks at iBikeFresno.org. who are inviting riders to meet at Manchester for a start time of 7:45am. Check out the iBikeFresno website for more details.

Since this is the final weekend of the Rogue Festival here are a few more words to add:
OK. I am getting ready to go to the Rogue Festival this weekend and needed to pick up a few Rogue Bucks. I was just a little confused by the new math. Can someone explain it?
The Eternally Grateful Dead.
What? All I asked was, “Would you like to do a little cardio?”
“Thank you Susan. I sense that you are frugal and tad bit possessive.”
“Let’s just say there is a ‘bun in the oven’ “
“She just deleted his browsing history.”
“Like they say, ‘You are what you eat.’ “
“YOU ARE SICK – I can hear what you’re doing over there whoever you are
so, let me make one thing perfectly clear to you … I can be ready in an hour.”
“On second thought I’ll meet you down there!”
“You misunderstood, I said pair of dice.”
“snow licky boom boom dem”
‘I admit it. You are irresistible.”
“OH MY GOSH – DID YOU SEE THAT?”
” So, have you learned anything in that Marketing class?”
“… and that is why you should never hitch a ride from strangers.”
“Really? It’s like 20 below out here!”
