Quote of the Day

January 2, 2010

You see fleeting perfection of form merging with a significant substance, and you make a clicking noise only a hair’s breadth away. You have then judged something, reported something, ostensibly truthfully… And when you made a clicking noise you said something eloquently if you are skilled.

Burk Uzzle

(1938 –    )

American Photographer

Burk is the guy who took a bunch of Woodstock pics.

From Boing Boing:

“Burk Uzzle shot the festival from the vantage point of a participant. In one particularly telling photograph, a sea of humanity as dense as a carpet of wildflowers in a meadow spills over a hillside; in another, a young hippie couple standing in a tender embrace under a grandmother’s quilt became the icon of a generation. Rather than document the music, Uzzle chose to focus on details of living, existence, and enjoyment over that three day period. In so doing, he captured the spirit of the festival and ultimately an era.”


And here’s the story behind one well-known Woodstock photo:



Poem: Meeting

September 25, 2009


clipart for Meeting


                       On the bridge, he sips her breath,

                       seals her back, is of her shape


                       what she is not. I am already that

                       which they abhor – my unintentioned


                       place in their sun, intrusive. If

                       those waters could keep their gaze,


                       I’d slip into shadow, retrace my

                       own false steps, turn up elsewhere –


                       though when I first began, this path

                       was mine. They notice me – and


                       part. Half a step beyond, I am

                       tempted by their love to try again.
