Mother Superior Vena Cava Shares Her Life In & Out of the Convent!

Mother Superior Vena Cava would like to share some wit & wisdom that she gets in & out of the convent.  She is predicting that there will be a new era of those who long for the convent life & will take the vows & the veil “without murmur.”  She is quite confident that there is enough drama in life & silence will be of much value.

Also known as Her Imperial Highness, Princess Melita Bonaparte, Order of The Most Holy Hashtag, she lives a combination of Religious & Secular life.  "I am in & out of Trouble, just as others are in & out of being on some A-List. I do hope my photograph of this bumper sticker will make people think.  All that judge stuff makes me very tired."

Also known as Her Imperial Highness, Princess Melita Bonaparte, Order of The Most Holy Hashtag, she strangely lives a combination of Religious & Secular life. “I am in & out of Trouble, just as others are in & out of being on some A-List. I do hope my photograph of this bumper sticker will make people think. All that judge stuff makes me very tired.”

Today, she observed this bumper sticker on her way back to the Convent & hoped that it would inspire some happy thoughts in a world that needs them.  “If I can reach one person with this thought (as the kind owner of this vehicle reached me) then the day will be all the better for it.”  –Mother Superior Vena Cava:   22 April 2015, A.

Some Fine Day, We Might Not Have To See This Anymore!

If minds, hearts, souls, can open up, if we can just live & let live, we would not need to memorialise tragedy. Hate is a form of tragedy. It might make for compelling theatre & films. We might not have half of what we do on Saturday Night Live without it, but a peaceful life, with fears done away, could cause a new art form never before imagined. It stirs in my mind, but I must admit, that I have no idea what to call it, nor quite how to respond to a world without hate, without the ritualised killing called war & execution. Having a world without land mines & torture could bring about an artistic revolution that would have us all thinking & acting differently.

Till that fine day comes, here is what we see @ present: 4 Views of Violence & Plastic Body Parts, Store Window, San Francisco 2013.

In Missouri, They Have Some German Dialect Thing Going On, Nein?

My inner Melita Bonaparte felt that there was more to this place than just getting your tank filled up. I sort of imagined Mae West purring this business name out & getting jail time for it, the way she did in New York City back in the 1920s. But, here is is, “Fill ‘er up at your own risk!” Then go, really quickly, go as fast as you can, because you don’t know who might be following you!

Just don’t come and go as you would in ordinary circumstances…you Kum & Go when in Joplin. Just get your business done, and go, just go!

Once it's over, it's over.  There is no going back, unless you pay.

This puts it in context, I think?

It’s on a street called Maiden Lane, so that sort of cleans up the act, I’d say!

And, now, for the GRAND PRIZE–You Tube Has This Video—Yes, a place to go when I get tired of being passed over because I am not related to anyone in the food chain!!!!!!!

Kum & Go Will Be There For You! There is always a need for someone to mop up puke! I can do that!

On The Way to Norway Day…An Art Saga

The journey to participate in Norway Day turned out to be an art saga of sorts. Most impressive, and fitting in (perhaps unintentionally with the simplicity & functionality that results in visual beauty: a tradition in Scandinavian design) was the circular bench, constructed of shaped & welded metal rods, the sort you generally see used as support devices inside a mold being readied for concrete to be poured. This bench is just made from metal rods & is a thing of beauty! I was lucky enough to find it unpopulated & got out the point & click! My camera is not capable of showing it in its entirety, but here is the general idea…

Same bench, more towards the middle-the effect is almost as if it were woven, rather than welded.

This is about the best I could do to covey the overall shape & look of this bench.  It's comfortable enough for a moderate sit down, but does not have the napping appeal that a couch would permit.

Et resurrexit tertia die…

….secundum Spripturus,
et ascendit in caelum,
sedet ad detexteram Patris

Et expecto resurrectionem mortuorum, et vitam venturi saeculi.  Amen.

HAPPY EASTER TO EVERYONE, WHICH IS HOW IT WAS INTENDED FROM DAY ONE!

SCRIPTOMANIA

A little more overview, with some missing details to ponder…20 March 2013

On the streets of San Francisco, daily, some form of undecipherable script looms in front of us, challenging our senses. What does it say? What is the message? Many of these ‘tags’ (which came first the street form or the Social Media form for this term?) are out there, with an aesthetic all their very own. Her are two views of the same one, as my point & click could not get a full view without compromising the details.

I can read the letters, but not the words.

The invitations were all hand made, multiples, with slight variations.  A Bonaparte cottage industry.
