Inspiration for this Flash 55 ~~ space and how
it is utilized
in both living and/or work places.
We flirted with words, acted on impulse (ever so playfully at first.)
Words that flew back and forth though space, across time zones, continents,

language. Stories, histories, likes, dislikes. We shared tragedy and
triumph. Space and time ultimately ended
us. I miss him.

Our city has grown by leaps and bounds since we arrived ten years ago. I miss deer roaming through our neighborhoods, a magical sight ... now the magic is gone. Huge swaths of trees and brush destroyed to build a four year college in the middle of Bend that will impact traffic and disrupt homeowners for decades to come. Our city leaders have goofed on this one, big time!!!
To paraphrase Karin; artifice is a strange word. Certainly, it has negative connotations, often carrying the idea of falsity or insincerity. But artifice also refers to stratagems that are marked by the artful, the genius. Using Picasso as inspiration, Karin suggests we compose a poem that gets us to some expression of the genuine.
