    1. Yes it is mine. I picked it up a few weeks ago on craigslist, It weighs too much to lug around so I have another on the way. I love experimenting with different media. And I just love writing poetry on a typewriter...smiles

  4. I agree, the ground is good...everything good starts there. And, that photo of your typewriter is simply magnificent!

  5. I guess I interpret this differently then others... I concur on the photo, however. Very cool image.

    1. I am curious how you interpret this. I can see some possibilities, and I actually think I meant something else when I first wrote it...but now I am not so sure. :)

  6. I agree that if we really look closely, ground is beautiful and it is the stuff of which we are made. Nice.

    1. Thank you. I have always disliked writing poetry on the computer. I have trouble connecting with my words and hand writing or typing helps me connect so that is how I present.

  8. Very lovely share ~ I like the snapshot presentation ~ And yes, being grounded helps, though I like to keep my eyes set far away ~
