Always ethereal, always eclectic, I write as the mood strikes, when there intrigue reveals itself. Usually that means something controversial or adventure of some sort.

I've tried really hard to be unprovocative, but have as yet been unsuccessful.

I did not succeed.

My goal was to get all 100 ceramic pigs in Seattle. I did not succeed. Thorns came up, and I had to buy a yoke of oxen, and I just got married. And, it turns out they pulled them all off the street today, and are going to auction them off to raise money for the poor. I thought there would be more time. You always think there will be more time. Most sad, is there were some great dolphin and salmon pigs, with dorsal fins and tail, but I could never get them when I had my camera with me.

So, here are my last four images, which I'd been saving up to add to. To see the old pigs, go here, and scroll down.
In front of the Seattle Library.

I can see how getting married would cut down on the time available for pig-spotting...

Congratulations on getting married! May I ask, if you don't mind: what fascinates you about pigs? To me, as much as I love animals, theya are one of the least attarctive of God's creatures.

I've always loved them- since about the time I was reading Charlotte's Web probably. They are incredibly intelligent, probably the 3rd most intelligent group of animals, and definitely the most intelligent domesticated animal. They are the cleanest domesticated animal, naturally being poddy-trained from birth. They espouse mud, but are often forced into it through poor farming practices and because they have so few sweat glands; they prefer clean water. They have an incredible sense of smell and muscular nose for plowing and uprooting. They are fastidious and polite, being the only farmyard animal that won't overeat. And most of all, the most beautiful curves I've seen in the animal kingdom, at least on land.

Correction: The most beautiful curves on land, or the most beautiful non-human curves on land? [grin]

I don't know. I haven't spent much time with the human kinds.

I was actually planning to join the Sadomasochism Bestiality Necrophilia Club in college, but I figured it would be just beating a dead horse.
