Note: No clever symbolism intended in the second photo; I just needed something to keep the book open. Although, that is my father’s old ashtray, and that is his brother’s old briar pipe. Click on both images for a larger view.


Recently Linked: My thanks to Robert for highlighting my comment on his beautiful memory collage (for lack of a better term, for really, his work is much, much more than that, as you will see as you travel around his site), young couple of yesterday.

Thank you! Robert is working some good magic with his photos, and of course the word “photos” hardly does them justice.

Ashtrays and pipes — I live with these and so many other similarly sacred objects every day. And you see our mutual friend in the background. We both know he approves.
