Guardian of the Glade   Leave a comment

Summoned from the waters of the sacred spring, the Guardian watches over the Glade of the Goddess, fending off those who would profane the holy shrine with their violence ….

Go Go Round   1 comment

What might we have if Gordon Lightfoot’s early song, “Go Go Round,” was brought forward from the Sixties into the distant future …?  The NEO-Japan sale event has some great clothes to illustrate it.

Alone upon the sidewalks of despair
’twas there she wandered
With her suitcase in her hand
Her fate she pondered

4767 C. E.

Ariel Sherman, relaxing one night on the front terrace of her mansion in Vidran City, saw the flitter descend from traffic level outside the estate, aiming for the parking area in front of the garage. The golden cyborg smiled as she recognized the color and markings on the air vehicle. Laying aside her bookpadd on a side table, she stood and headed down the stairs to the ceramacrete pathway between house and garage.

Diconay Boa has been around for years, but has never made an edition of Contact Sheet.  This is a bit remiss of me, as I’ve followed her for all this time, and her work is excellent.  This photo, anticipation, amends that lateness on my part. 

I chose it because, in an extremely economical setting, Diconay combines both intensity and humor.  The lack of color forces a focus on the tableau in the foreground.  Diconay is plainly waiting for something or someone; and her desire for resolution creates the intensity of her gaze on the clock.  At the same time, her expression, combined with the fixity of her stare and the cigarette she is smoking, inject a note of absurdity that I find wonderfully irresistable.

Well done, Di!

Night Mail   Leave a comment

This is the night mail crossing the Border,
Bringing the cheque and the postal order,
Letters for the rich, letters for the poor,
The shop at the corner, the girl next door.
Pulling up Beattock, a steady climb:
The gradient’s against her, but she’s on time.

The Lamp of Life   Leave a comment

Always we are following a light,
Always the light recedes; with groping hands
We stretch toward this glory, while the lands
We journey through are hidden from our sight
