The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Photo #132 and more!

Yesterday was simply stellar- 70 degrees!

We took the bus to downtown Portland

and had the nicest afternoon.

Alright- some of it was spent in a dark pub

waiting to go into a dark movie house to

watch a 3-D movie about a newly discovered cave

and the 30,000 year old paintings on the walls.

Some of the movie could have been done

differently, but the images made so long ago

were so beautiful. What was the most interesting

thing is none of the images were of hunting and

there was only one obscure human image of a female figure.

After the movie we went over to North 45.

A super duper place for mussels!

We shared a huge bowl of stir fried green beans..

and then shared a huge bowl of steamed mussels in

a spicy garlicky broth. Complete with beer, bread and fries.

Yum. Then we walked the mile down to the bus and came home.

What a fun day.

I like this photo, Kathe. That's what libraries are for. To educate us about things we wouldn't normally think of in a library atmosphere. What better forum than music? cool. :-)
