Idle hands ...

Been ailing ...
digestive problems.

Spent today at home napping off and on.

Began perusing facebook and found an
interesting B&W photo of Janis Joplin.



Liked the composition, the naturalness of her pose.
Decided to tweak it some, using Photoshop.
Here's the final product:

Confronting ...

Came upon this posting on facebook today:


Applaud her courage ...
but am in absolute awe of her great good luck.
The flake with the AK could, just as easily,
have pulled the trigger on her.
It would have been,"Goodbye, Antoinette. RIP."

Am not saying that she was wrong.
She used the only weapon at her disposal,
Psychology
... and it worked!
