Late … I could swear I posted this before crawling into bed last night…  Grrrrrr!

Today is the final Friday of September, which means it is the Final Friday Salem Art Walk – which I usually participate in as CC Willow.

Today will mostly be all ‘CC Willow’. I have to pick art up from the two closing Art Shows – Spinnaker Place’ & Paint The Town’.

But from there I am going straight to Prism Gallery at the Reed & start setting up for The Walk. I will be directly inside the gallery itself/ That leaves me in place to be the evening docent for the opening Steampunk Art Show.  (And in the same room with the fruit & wine!) We are doing hats this time around; preparing for Salem’s second annual Steampunk Ball on October 26th.

I already have my hat piece finished and submitted this afternoon. S … I’ll; post the picture tomorrow from the show!

Sept 28th’s prompt is a Lord Byron quote “a drop of ink may make a million think”.

Inspiration? here’s a video of a drop of ink diffusing on water.

Today’s poem is a Poem of Witness, a piece in response to Simone Weils’s The Year of Factory Work.

This was written about about Guatanomo By, when one of the stories broke about human rights violations there. The article revealed how Gitmo Bay guards had photographed themselves being inhumane to their prisoners – all sorts of human rights violations. Lyndie refers o one of the guards in the photograph,

Looking at Lyndie
