"Jackass"

"Concerning the difference between man & the jackass.
Some observers hold that there isn't any. But this wrongs the jackass.
"  Mark Twain, 1899
The Quotable Mark Twain, R.K. Rasmussen

I'm opting out of social media for a bit. I will work harder on my creative skills including looking at images that didn't seem special when they found me. This one, for instance, was a beautiful flower I found in a pond at high noon at Hillwood. The backdrop of the flower was the deeply shadowed stone bank or wall of the pond. I'm a fan of the stark contrasts and textures and complimenting colors. 

I'm also a fan of Mark Twain/Samuel Clemens. I find his skills delightful and inspiring. I have read and re-read many of his works. I will provide a quote by him in many of my posts. As a source, I'm using Rasmussen's "The Quotable Mark Twain." The quotes won't necessarily match the image or the story of the post but they will always make me smile and I hope they do you, too.

I am going to post this post (hah! see) on FB but then will no longer do that after today. If you haven't already, please click on the "Subscribe RSS" button on this page.
