Section 5, Chapter 4; First Line:

The rest of the day swirls past in fog, one of wet gray heat, the other of the cacophonous voices on the pages and in her head.

When history finally permits the ghosts to speak, they tell stories of heroism . . . and of harm.

Jewels and Gems: The Fruits of the Earth

Photo copyright Wings, 2015; all rights reserved.

Now posted at The NDN Silver Blog, it's this week's entry in our ongoing Jewels and Gems series. Today, it's a stone of summer, one that evokes the colors of the fruits of the earth (and of the earth itself). The earrings sold years ago, but the small cabochons remain available in Wings's inventory of stones, as does the large cab shown near the end of the post. If it's a stone that speaks to you, he can create something just for you; simply inquire via the Contact form.

The post is here. Wings's main page is here. As always, shares of the site links are much needed and much appreciated.

On a programming note, my appearances beyond regular postings will be scattered this week, and those may occur later than usual in the day. We began irrigating again yesterday evening, and that will consume most of the week, particularly for Wings, which means that (migraine notwithstanding) I'll be picking up tasks in other areas. My e-mail is still being held hostage regularly, so the most effective ways of reaching me at this point are through the site Contact form, or FB and Twitter DMs. What I can promise is that for tomorrow's post, I'll have a new and and absolutely stunning piece by Wings for the day's featured item.

An icy wind stings her skin like tiny needles.

Ghosts pay visits via many bridges and paths, some in this world, some in another.

Now posted at The NDN Silver Blog, it's our Monday Photo Meditation for the last week of July. This week, our focus is on color and hue: on the blues and greens and browns and golds that are the colors of the season in this place that we call home.

The post is here. Wings's main page is here. As always, photos are available for purchase in any of the usual three formats; simply inquire via the Contact form on the site. Also as always, shares are much needed and appreciated.

Igniting the Air, Birthing the Rain

Now posted at The NDN Silver Blog, it's the final entry in this week's Wednesday/Weekend series highlighting Wings's own work. As with yesterday's featured item, these are brand new, completed only yesterday. They are also my own brand-new favorite, a work that speaks to me at levels and in ways that defy my ability to articulate them.

The post is here. Wings's main page is here. And, as always, shares of the site links are much needed and much appreciated.

The marsh hawk coasts just within sight on the currents of a burning blue sky. 

He is harbinger and escort simultaneously, the sign of ghosts about to rise up, and the one who midwifes their resurrection.

A Fall of Water and Sky

Now posted at The NDN Silver Blog, it's what I promised you earlier: Wings's latest, completed only this morning. It's also something in keeping with the week's theme, incredibly high-grade material that's wholly elemental
