“The Daily Dazzler” – is a picture that caught my eye or touched my heart for one reason or another.

Congratulations Ted – today The Daily Dazzler is yours – I love the retro look you have happening here
- good question too – but “love” and “lust” are often confused ☺.

Osip Mandelstam by Mary Ann Reilly

We Live, Not Feeling
- Osip Mandelstam

We live, not feeling the country beneath us,
Our speech inaudible ten steps away,
But where they’re up to half a conversation -
They’ll speak of the Kremlin mountain man.

His thick fingers are fat like worms,
And his words certain as pound weights.
His cockroach whiskers laugh,
And the top of his boots glisten.

And all around his rabble of thick-skinned leaders,
He plays through services of half-people.
Some whistle, some meow, some snivel,
He alone merely caterwauls and prods.

Like horseshoes he forges decree after decree-
Some get it in the forehead, some in the brow,
some in the groin, and some in the eye.
Whatever the execution – it’s a raspberry to him
And his Georgian chest is broad.

The White Elephant Sale by Bunny Clarke

The sitter I have known for a while.
Gertrude a lovely girl and a good friend.
She came from Glasgow.
Studied in the local University then fell in love,
as one does on a Mediterranean island.
She had four years of married bliss but,
as is now way too normal,
Love faded then got jaded then,
as one does on a Mediterranean island,
they parted ways, him finding solace
in another woman whom he had been
seeing for a while unbeknown to Gertrude.
Of course, when the love died she found
she didn’t much like life in Glasgow anymore.
So she returned to her previous daytime job
of Credit Manager and did a little bar-work
in summer.
I met her in ‘Fuego’, the best and only
Latin-American Night-club, some years ago.
Having spent quite a bit of time in Scotland
in years past we struck up a friendship
that has lasted.
An interest in fitness gives her
the arms and legs of an athlete
and yet her soft feminine self is undiminished.
One great thing about being a painter is
that many single females,
once trust is achieved,
have little trouble posing for a painting.
So may I introduce Gertrude, better known as “Gertie”,
my confident and self-assured Scottish friend.
