Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




pining for release
the sound of shattering glass
earthy summer smells

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #99: Levels

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. Hmmmm…

    …went beyond a certain level?

    A before shot?

  2. A before shot? Pretty much the same except for an obnoxious reflection in the window. The real question is which is pining more; the frog on the inside or the one on the outside? Do each want that which they cannot have?


  3. <chuckle> My read involved broken glass…

  4. Hmmm…. I should clarify.

    As in someone tossing a frog mug through the glass, for personal release, you see.

  5. Yes, pining to break the glass window that separates them.
    Levels: inside vs out, live vs ceramic, free vs stuck
    I walked into my Mother’s kitchen to find this scene. In my imagination the live frog had fallen in love with a ceramic frog and the look on the ceramic frog was one of wanting to escape its bondage.

  6. Ah, now that would be a new level all together.

  7. Yep.

    My question now is, “Why was I going there?”

    Something I’ll keep in the back of my mind while I edit thousands of frames shot the past few days.

  9. Ha! Can’t wait to see them.
    Right now I would like to throw a mug at the TV. I am sick of terrible, crazy news. But then I would be part of the violence problem…..

  10. I don’t watch TV — my FB newsfeed is disturbing enough.
