I don’t know about you, but as for me, there is only so much death, bombing, murder and mayhem that I can take in a given period for I hit the “tilt” zone. I could not read even one more news story about murder and death today. I watched pet videos instead.
[ I also weed-eated the edge of the yard, trimmed blackberries vines over the fence, pruned cedars, watered the garden, miracle-grow-fed the garden, swept the garage and driveway, re-stacked what’s left of winter wood, shipped two jewelry orders, and now I am making black beans and rice. So I have been a productive little Cherokee. 🙂 ] Enjoy.
A fabulous collection of photos which has been circulating the internet arrived in my in-box today and I wanted to share them. Spread the love and send them on!
A very talented sculpting artist who was born and raised in Long Island NY, Ray Villafane, is reputed to be the master carver behind these stunning Halloween Jack O’ Lanterns. The name of his studio appears on some of the photos: Villafane Studios. Enjoy!
If you love all things visual, as I do, and if you admire the power of images to convey a face-slappingly stark message, you will enjoy browsing this page of magazine cover eye candy from http://coverjunkie.com:
I found these while researching a new post on the premanufactured “personality cult” of Barack Obama, which you can find here.

The Human Form as A Floral, Digital Renderings

Anonymous Digital Renderings Circulated on the Web in Early 2011.
These anonymous digital renderings circulated the web in early January 2011, and employ a high level of creativity and Photoshop skills. I thought they were spectacular and wanted to post them for others to enjoy. They fall under the blanket copyright of all content posted on my blogs. I have reason to believe they may have originated in the Mideast. These, to me, are especially novel and delightful.
