Statue Story Holiday

Seen last autumn on holiday in Montreal...


Man contemplating his window of opportunity.




Man having romantic thoughts.



Man thinking of a cow.



Man who failed to climb the ladder of success.




Man having hang-ups about being placed under a gag order.
.



Two men having the same out of body experience.

  6. Agree that these might become a novel. Wonderful comment upon time and life. Like the ladder one most. Please have a good new week ahead.

    I've already planned the sequel: it's called "A Man Walked Into a Bar."

  9. jann,
    As others have said to me before,if I'm so clever why am I not rich? Rich in humour, I guess.
    :-D

    Glad to see the pix didn't incur a gagging effect in you!

    Maybe the title of the book could be "Man Having a Novel Idea."

  17. Bella,
    I'm glad you get such a head rush from these sightings, but I'm afraid that's all he wrote!

  18. Gillian,
    They came came to me in a flash, after an extended period of head banging.

  19. Man oh man, you've mangled and tangled up my mind, and under those daunting, haunting, staring dark be-he-moths, am fleeing back through windows of opportunity and doors of perception to a space where they can't come looking over my shoulder... :-)

  20. Owen,
    No need to lose your head over it all, but just be careful that they don't head you off at the pass. They could be heading your way. Just thought I'd give you a heads up. You might try lodging a complaint with the head man if all else fails.

  21. What a lovely tangential walk I took here!

  22. Novel post and puny indeed! Great tales you weave, mon amie. I hope that your transition is going well.

    Bises,

  23. It was supposed to say "punny" not "puny"!

  24. these are brilliant! the pictures would be interesting without the titles, sometimes funny, but it is the words which make everything into a touch of genius!!!

    my favourite one is "Man contemplating his window of opportunity" - it is so deep and, if one stops to ponder longer, unsettling, when applied on one's own life...

  25. rosaria,
    glad to have you along. I tried visiting you but was baffled by the Google circle thing. I guess you could say it did my head in.

  26. Genie,
    Glad that you appreciate my puny efforts.
    :-D

  27. Roxana,
    Please forgive me for laying a head trip on you (old slang from the sixties/seventies). Couldn't resist the opportunity to use it here!

    I was so thrilled to catch sight of this bound, gagged, and hung statue being lifted into place. The symbolism was just too wonderful. And when I went back later and found it installed, there were just so many more "windows" of opportunity awaiting. How could I resist.
