I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.

  1. Hmm. .. your image is broken… reporting 404.

    I have been experiencing upload issues on my blog. Perhaps the same wordppress issue.?

  2. Probably and thank for letting me know. I tried to link the photo a few times. I’m not sure if I should leave it alone and let WP fix their issue or if I should try to re-link the photo.


  3. If you can upload to another site on the net…. say, Facebook … then you could try linking to the image url.

    Oterwise, just try uploading to wordppress intermittently.

  10. Hank, you know it is your turn on the Carpe Diem Renga Party right? Looking forward to your post!


  11. I love the way moonlight evokes a scene rather than illuminates it. Tantalizing indeed. Just enough suggestion that the mind insists on filling in its own opinions.

    Lovely image. Lovely poem.
