Is It Any Wonder That …

M’lord … where has the American heart gone? Was there ever one?
The ‘Ugly American’ rearing its head!! Has a mask fallen off … to be swayed so easily?
‘When the ‘man’ in charge says it is okay to hate based on race, skin colour, or whatever other criteria, then those who follow his every word, take it to heart. Yeah, words matter, folks.’

“We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in — and we’re stopping a lot of them — but we’re taking people out of the country. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals.” – Donald Trump, Wednesday 16 May 2018

“Frankly, I don’t think the term that the president used was strong enough.” – Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Thursday, 17 May 2018

Trump and Sanders both claim that he was referring to members of the gang known as MS-13.  Perhaps so, but it doesn’t matter, for it is not appropriate for the ‘man’ who is supposed to set an example, as leader of a republic, to refer to any human being as an ‘animal’. And in context, it sounded as if he were referring to immigrants in general. But either way, words are important, especially when they are heard by millions…

What would it look like for him, he wondered, when he wrapped things up?

Never forgotten … ‘Everything came to an end at some point; it was a reality he accepted and confronted so often in his work, even as he tried to out-race it. What would it look like for him, he wondered, when he wrapped things up and told the crowd good night for the last time? How could it be anything other than devastating?’

Live & Learn


It was a question that crossed Robin’s mind more often these days, now that he had put in roughly 35 years as a professional entertainer and more than 60 as a human being.

What did he still get out of doing what he was doing, and why did he feel the compulsion to keep doing it? He had already enjoyed nearly all of the accomplishments that one could hope for in his field, tasted the richest successes, won most of the major awards. Every stage of his career had been an adventure into the unknown, an improvisation in its own right, but there was truly no road map for where he was now. Everything came to an end at some point; it was a reality he accepted and confronted so often in his work, even as he tried to out-race it. What would it look like for him…

Temporarily Away from WordPress …. Will be Back Soon …. Behave While I’m Away …. “!!


~~May 17, 2018~~ 


I’m going away for a bit.

There’s a trip I’m going on.

I’m going back home for a few days.

I won’t be able to post as usual. I won’t be able to reblog either … my phone and my iPad don’t have the ‘reblog button’ anymore.

Don’t know why!

Anyway, I will be looking in every so often to check up on my dear friends.

I will miss all of you.


On the morning of Wednesday, September 20, 2017, Hurricane María struck Puerto Rico, devastating the island and plunging all of its 3.4 million residents into a desperate humanitarian crisis.

I will never forget.

I’m going to see family and friends.

I want to drive around and see what is happening 8 months after this disaster.

IOTD …. “🇵🇷 Images of the Day, Very Special Edition 🇵🇷 …. This Flag is Everywhere …. “!!

RedLineBJason deCaires Taylor (born 12 August 1974 in Dover) is a British sculptor and creator of the world’s first underwater sculpture park – the Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park – and underwater museum.

He is best known for installing site-specific underwater sculptures which develop into artificial coral reefs integrating his skills as a sculptor, marine conservationist, underwater photographer and scuba diving instructor.

His works in Grenada have been listed among the Top 25 Wonders of the World by National Geographic. His most ambitious projects to date are the creation of the world’s largest underwater sculpture museum, the Cancún Underwater Museum, situated off the coast between Cancún and Isla Mujeres, Mexico and Ocean Atlas (2014), a 5-metre tall, 60-ton sculpture off the Bahamas. Taylor is currently based on the island of Lanzarote, Spain, working on a major new underwater museum for the Atlantic Ocean.


RedLineBJason deCaires Taylor’s New Sculpture “Nest” Unveiled
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, July 31, 2017

The new work by underwater sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor – called “Nest” – has been completed with the installation of the final figures.

The sculptor describes the work thus: “‘Nest’ creates a new habitat space, a nucleus of protection and support. The circular formation evokes time and continuum, an echo of the circle of life.”

Now open to the public, the new sculpture, which is comprised of 48 life-size human figures, is situated near the island of Gili Meno, one of the three Gili Islands found between Bali and Lombok.

It’s the first time that Taylor has situated a work in the Asia region; his sprawling masterpiece, “Museo Atlántico,” is located off the Spanish island of Lanzarote.

Commissioned by the luxury resort developer BASK, the new sculpture sits in just 13 feet of water, so it’s possible for snorkelers as well as divers to visit the installation.

We Have Met The Enemy …

Shameful … ‘with friends like that, who needs enemies?’ …. that’s how America is perceived in Europe!

… And He Is Us

Some may think that I am over-reacting when I say that Donald Trump, with his decisions last week to renege on the Iran nuclear deal and to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, has seriously jeopardized our relationship with our allies abroad.  I realize that I am sometimes considered, especially by my republican friends, to be a purveyor of ‘gloom and doom’, an alarmist.  But this morning I was directed to an article in the German publication, der Spiegel, a well-respected publication, that reinforces my opinion.  I think it is very important that we, as citizens not only of the United States, but also of the world, realize and comprehend just what we have lost, what our friends think of us now.  One can criticize ‘globalism’ as much as one likes, but the reality is that we are living in a global world, we…

Puerto Rico Nervously Prepares for Hurricane Season: ‘What if Another One Comes?’

Been through hurricanes but nothing as devastating as María … PTSD feelings and symptoms remain.
Puerto Rico isn’t ready for another hit!!

Repeating Islands


On June 1, a new hurricane season will begin. And Puerto Ricans, who are struggling to recover from Maria, fear they will not be ready.

“What if another one comes? We’re very worried,” Migdalia Díaz, 64, said from her home in Las Piedras, a town of about 38,000 in eastern Puerto Rico where about a quarter of residents are still without power.
