*keight and =DuncanJBerry say it's time for another gang of ten or, in this case, fifteen. Since the first two slots are spoken for, that leaves a lucky thirteen for the rest.
This isn't just for us "established" photographers and painters. So, come on, you new watchers, jump on in.
The first thirteen folks who comment on this journal get to be part of pearwood's lucky thirteen. I will go through your gallery and pick three of my favorite deviations for display here. You can post the same offer in your journal, though that's not required. (It's a happily benign Ponzi scheme.) The html for this page is here. Previous gangs are here.

The swing set was safe.
No ogres or trolls, nor mechanical demons
could breach the tall metal ladder of the slide.
Higher and higher we flew on the swings,
until we landed hard on the ground.
Sometimes with bones broken or muscles twisted.
I wish I could find it again,
that giant made of rusty steel pipes and chains, oil and aluminum.
Along with the magical places it led too.
Back in the woods it rots,
guarded now by the very monsters it used to resist.
But I still remember, and that is enough to feel safe.

My dear favorite band,
How you get into my head and write my songs, I will never know. You probably hear that all the time. But it's so true, you realize. It's like these pieces are already sleeping in my soul and awaken only when I put your music on.
I've met you before; maybe you remember me. I was the girl with the tight bun, dressed in the 19th century clothes like some time-forgotten figure in the corner. I gave you a folded piece of paper and ran away; when I turned back you were looking after me. The headlights of the bus were glinting off of tears sitting in your eyes. We both know what I wrote, and I think I'll leave that in the pa

Feel free to use any of my waterscape or landscape photographs as stock images. I ask only that you let me know, and that you post a link to the original.
The Heidelberg Catechism, published in 1563, remains one of the warmest expressions of the Christian faith ever written. This is how it begins.
What is your only comfort in life and in death?
That I am not my own,
but belong --
body and soul,
in life and in death --
to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ.
He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood,
and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil.
He also watches over me in such a way
that not a hair can fall from my head
without the will of my Father in heaven;
in fact, all things must work together for my salvation.
Because I belong to him,
Christ, by his Holy Spirit,
assures me of eternal life
and makes me wholeheartedly will and ready
from now on to live for him.
