The Buddhas and the Bicycle

Just a
little photo
to fill a very
empty space

and a clickie
or two
for substance

Photo note: ungepatched

Addendum: yet another strange combo

Fair Warning


View image

As the regular reader might have noticed all of us here at Dakota have left you to wander alone on the vastness of the internet for quite some time, but we would be shirking our responsibility to certain readers if we didn't warn " those of you who are not used to being pushed around and .....find... yourselves in unfamiliar territory" that amnesty for tax dodgers who tucked their bonuses in Zurich came to an end September 23. UBS, the Swiss bank that actively lured some of you abroad, was supposed to have revealed your name to the IRS already. However, you may still have a small window through which to turn yourself in without going to jail.... just going broke.

Remember, before you do something stupid like this again, be sure to buy yourself a congressman first

Photo note: A little window, like we said - in a cute neighborhood with a vinyl storm

Hanging On By A String


I dreamed
I held
my dying friend
in my arms
stroking her
freckled cheek
although she
has no freckles

and then
we rode
all the way
the elevator
from atop
a skyscraper
to the bottom
where I lost her

I was bereft

no wonder

I'm the one
with freckles

Photo note: Someone's idea of a whimsical holiday decoration - a metaphorophoto for the tenuous connection the creative aspect of self has to the organism - notice the rather large hole in the heart
