    "Ah—the ‘mad’ poet, whose madness was part prose, methinks, and partial authenticity. To see beyond dimension and taste the Outside dents your mortal sanity. I can see it in your eyes."

    Images from a NYC Fire Dept’s 20th century scrapbook- highlighted by staff from Villanova University’s Special Collections and Digital Library. Via The Public Domain Review. Don’t be fooled by the bland name, The Public Domain Review is filled with fascinating stuff. I highly recommend it!

    Photos from the Sacramento Wildlife Refuge. Meanwhile, St Agnes watches over her little church in Zamora, California. A couple chums and I visited the refuge to see thousands of snow geese and other waterfowl. I took these photos with my elderly iphone. I made sure to clean the camera lens with my shirttail first. I’m careful like that. More pics.
