Who among us has not dreamt, in moments of ambition, of the miracle of a poetic prose, musical without rhythm and rhyme, supple and staccato enough to adapt to the lyrical stirrings of the soul, the undulations of dreams, and sudden leaps of consciousness. This obsessive idea is above all a child of giant cities, of the intersecting of their myriad relations.
—Dedication of Le Spleen de Paris _ Charles Baudelaire
Althea and I made it in this wonderful photograph by an unknown photographer at the “Friends of Richmond K-9” event this past weekend at the Tidal Basin. We had a close neighbor that owned a wolf hybrid that protected our neighborhood for a decade. We were with our neighbor and his faithful friend as they passed and miss both painfully.
Tom my nephew was working this event.

Came across a larger black widow Friday the 13th.
Taken 6-27-2006 with “Sony Cybershot DSC-S45 5.1 MP” the best digital camera I had at the time, it is a 22 photograph pano though.
“Falling Spring Overlook – Falling Spring Overlook was recently donated to the Commonwealth of Virginia by MeadWestvaco. The dedication ceremony was held in late November, 2004. The scenic waterfall is located on Route 220 in Alleghany County, just five miles north of Covington, Virginia. The property has had extensive renovations to the overlook and grounds so that visitors can more safely stop and enjoy the view, making it one of the most visited spots in the Alleghany Highlands. The water from the falls flows into the Jackson River at the popular gathering spot of Camp Kyle on land owned by the R. W. Kyle family in the beautiful Falling Spring Valley.”
Got by to photograph the Cirque Italia tent today and was privileged to see some of the show. Circus’s under a big top are like no others and the performers of this wonderful family are heart felt.
