Sprucin' the place up a bit. The word spruce has been around since the 16th century. Spruce moved from being an adjective, describing leather and other goods from Prussia, to a verb, meaning 'make smart and neat'. I love words.

    Ted ~ Life is about sharing information. I started out trying to keep my dyslexic son afloat until help arrived. Later I did time as a clinical educator (during the ICU years) and adjunct faculty (IU ~ Anatomy & Physiology and Microbioloby). Information comes in packets of words. I love words, or did I already say that?

    Jim ~ Weeds are amazing little forces of nature. You couldn't purposely grow something there if you tried all summer. I think I must be a weed. I'm pretty sure my tenacity is equivalent. Thanks for proppin' by.

    I love words. I also love doors (and The Doors). I should get some of my doors up on jpgmag too - I spent a good deal of time travelling in Tasmania taking shots of all sorts of doors. I love the contrast of tone and texture in this one, and if I think about the psychology of it all, I guess it would relate to the idea of things kept hidden ('behind closed doors') but also the promise of the revelation of secrets when the door is opened.

    Tom ~ I wish I could fill the bathtub full of words and just steep in them. Would LOVE to see your doors ----> begging to follow. Please post. What I like about this image is that an entire novel lives here. I consulted the dream dictionary about the psychology of this and here's what it said: 'To dream that the door is closed or locked signifies opportunities that are denied and not available to you or that you have missed out on. Something or someone is blocking your progress.' About the 'hidden' theory, I researched 'blur' and that is the attribute that infers hidden or secret. I posted a self-portrait recently and, yep, blurry as they come. I find the subconscious fascinating. You too it appears.
