Image of a large fluffy white cumulonimbus cloud against a brilliant blue sky. Sky ranges from baby blue at bottom right to cadet/royal blue in the middle to a deep near-indigo at top left. In the left bottom corner, black electric service lines cross the image at a 45-degree angle. In the middle of the heaviest electric service line sits a lone mockingbird.

Stark black & white photograph of a large piece of red velvet, folded back over onto itself multiple times. The folds in the fabric make a mirror image in the upper and lower halves of the photo, with the tops of each velvet ridge appearing to have a silver line running across the top (a photo effect).

Closeup, vivid color photo of a clear glass sugar dispenser next to a cream-colored ceramic Waffle House logo mug. Both sit on a laminated Waffle House menu, the Hashbrowns section of which is included in the lower middle portion of the image (

In foreground: a Waffle House logo coffee cup about half-full of light coffee, and to its left are three a knife, fork, and spoon on a white paper napkin. The rest of the frame is a wood-grain (Formica) laminate table top, light in the middle and dark around the table edges.

Close-up view of one wheel of a freight train car, massive and rusty-brown, on a clean silvered steel rail. The asphalt of the railroad crossing shows behind and in front of the train car wheel. In the background hangs the red-and-white striped reflective rail crossing "arm" that lowers automatically when a train approaches. Spring-green tree leaves fill out the far background, beyond the crossing arm.

Close-up view looking down into a clear acrylic glass of milk, near the rim of the glass. In the background are the edge of the tan/brown wood-grain laminate restaurant countertop, the rim of a heavy off-white ceramic cup full of coffee, and the colorful laminated Waffle House "Favorites" menu. A clear plastic drinking straw extends up out of the glass of milk and past our view, out of the photo to the upper-right.

Blue and white holiday lights on a string whiz past the camera in a blur of off-white rhomboids and bright blue dashes against a dark 9pm late December sky.

On a gray, overcast day, we look up into the green-painted, rusty steel beams under a railroad bridge, and also see the mossy concrete edge of bridge showing in the upper left corner of photo. Hanging from a thin piece of plastic fishing line is a 12-ounce Pepsi-Cola can bearing the bright red-white-and-blue standard Pepsi can design and logo. Presumably, the fishing line tied to the can is affixed somewhere on top of the railroad bridge, off camera.

Goodbye to 2018

This photo to close out the calendar year was an accident. No, really.

After applying a new red lipstick, I blotted the color with a square of toilet paper, then tossed the TP square into the toilet bowl. Several hours later, long after I’d flushed the toilet, I lifted the lid and saw the carmine-red half-kiss still on the side of the bowl.

The beauty of blazing red pigment against clean-yet-crawling-with-germs white porcelain? It’s a fitting metaphor for 2018.
