I think
I am
a 50 year old fool.

Essentially a stagnant effort on my part

I wrestle with having the gumption to take risks

I must force myself to run towards a whopping, superior, effulgent horizon


My lack of self worth is like a bully strong-arming me

Try as I might

I remained confined to this everlasting state of misery

Throw out (or in our case move it to another room) the old & bring in the new…

Photography, The Written Word

This bucket lamp has been in my family since as long as I can remember, so that’s 50 years. They don’t make sewing bucket lamps anymore. There is a good chance that this solid real wood lamp is probably 70 years old or more. Sadly it died, and I am not inclined to try to fix anything (needs to be rewired). So we moved it out of the living room and it resides in the dining room.

So, the wife & I bought and built (well her more than me, cos I suck at building fixing things) this ornate balsa wood lamp with two lights & shelves. Classy ya ask me.
