… to grace the windows of a certain kitchen in Berkzerkely sometime this spring or summer — watch this space!
I like the way the water-color paint look of the sky in this photograph: the way the periwinkle blue in the upper corners fades into the powder blue in the center. On another topic, dusk is getting later! This shot was taken at 5:20 PM!

Sunny yellow flowers for a cold winter evening — in the teens!
A poem of the Boomerang Man’s own making takes pride of place in this week’s original Boomerang — and deserves being quoted in full:
Bill was jest a grimy miner
underneath the ground,
Diggin’ “dusty diamonds”
all the year around.
One day a drunken bully
gave him a wicked blow
An’ fer many weeks he lingered
unfit to go below.
The day he went to work agin
a blast caved in the wall
And caught the bully squarely
underneath the fall.
Bill risked his life to save the bum
an’ the fellers asked him why
He didn’t pass the critter up
An’ leave him there to die.
“Well, Bull has got a mother
who loves the ornery bo,
An’ while he don’t amount to much
she’d hate to see him go.
Then, too, I kept a thinkin’
tho a bum that’s mean an’ tough–
He’s still a human bein’
an’ I reckon that’s enough.”
Written like a bonafide peace-nik!
In other news, cousin Lincoln and his wife are new parents! And the baby boy is named Lincoln too! It seems that Mabel Eno caught a glimpse of the new addition inadvertently …
Union Square with a weak sun burning through fog on a 20-something-degree morning … no wind, though, so not that bad at all!
