Project 313 – Post No. 020

I can’t deny I’m having fun with these.

However, today I want to touch on a serious issue. 

. . . nah; just joshing you. 

So, here’s the thing . . . I’ve been writing long tirades about this or that thing. I’m reasonably certain few people read them and while I appreciate them who do, I occasionally get into a time bind. 

This is one of them times. I think the next few posts will have little by way of my wonderful insight into the human condition. 

I hope people can cope. But, just in case, I would like to provide a useful link for helping the time pass until I once again fill this space with long-winded and meaningless ramblings. 

I mean, honestly, I think most people don’t need the link as they just skip over what I write, but a few people do find my ramblings of value, so here’s a quality substitute to my insightful and worthwhile tirades. 

HERE is your link.

And now, the photo:

I don’t see many mushrooms here on the island. Then again, I don’t go places where they grow. That one was in front of our mailbox so I had an opportunity to snap a photo without too much of a detour (about 13.75 inches deviation from the path I normally used to walk). 

The joke today is yet another instance of the genius of Ethel. 

Since I’ve started naming my doodles I’ve come to realize the cosmic significance of their meanings. What I thought were mindless patterns driven by a (mostly) stable-but-curious mind are, instead, deep insights into humanity’s struggle with finding meaning and purpose. 

Sometimes, the wisdom contained in these doodles is so deep that even voicing it would require the balance of most human lives. 

Still, I think the names I come up with accurately capture these deep meanings. I can’t yet speak to the purpose because that would require a second title and who’s ever heard of a work of art sporting two (two!) pretentious titles? Certainly, not me. 

Errant Paths and Squigly Side-paths . . . and Dots

And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.

  1. A pretty mushroom but I don’t think that I would risk eating it!

    I watched your link, but it dried up!


  3. Okay, for the past 8 hours and 12 1/2 minutes I’ve been watching that paint dry. Can I stop now?! Ha! I am usually the first one to touch the recently painted surface…too soon…to see if it’s dry yet.
    Photo: I love mushrooms! To look at! To eat! (The edible ones!) They make me think of magical places where the mushrooms are homes to shelter magical creatures from the sun and rain.
    Cartoon: Ha! Ethel is so helpful! I love it!
    Doodle: I would have entitled it “Woman Giving Man Directions to a Store Across the Street”. Okay, now all the women can be mad at me! Ha!
    HUGS!!! :-)

      Oh, you were so close! I’ve heard all the action is at the 8 hours and 23 minutes mark.

      I’ve always liked those mushrooms (to photograph) because of the texture. They get pretty nasty-looking toward the end of their cycle, but early on they’re almost huggable — you know, if I were a hugging person.

      Yes, she is.

      Ha! I wish I got directions that were that clear and concise!

      Happy Friday, Carolyn, and thanks.

      • HA!!!!! Darn! I just missed it! That’s what I get for being paint-impatient!

        Huggable mushrooms!!! YAY!!!

        HA!!! Yeah, you wouldn’t want directions from me…just use GPS. I’m like, “Okay, turn left where the old barn used to be. Then right at the medium sized rock and then go left where that patch of sunflowers bloom…” HA!
        Happy Friday to you, too!!! :-)


      • disperser says:

        Actually, those are the kinds of directions you get here as well. In part, I believe, it’s because even the locals have trouble pronouncing some of the street names, so directions are always based on landmarks.

    The TEXTURED mushroom and its framed photo are just plain beautiful!

    You’ve become a real Doodle Dandy!!!
