Spring Morning Rain

The beat of the
windshield wipers begins
and holds steady
as the dark clouds
of the worlds concert hall
slowly open
to the rhythm of the rain.

Passing headlights
provide the light show
joined with
the whoosh and hum,
a tire chorus
on wet pavement.

Spring’s early morning
experimental symphony.

… on… traveling to/in the US….

So clearly the holidays are upon us.    If you will be traveling by plane either to the United States or flying within the United States you will definitely be meeting up with the local TSA (that’s the Transportation Security Administration – not my Initials Terry S. Amstutz).  Your local TSA agent will make you feel uncomfortable, offended, confused and bewildered (much like I do – as some of my friends all attest)….  Well here’s two videos to tell you what to expect  and what you can and can’t do.   Enjoy.   HAPPY HOLIDAY TRAVEL everybody! Welcome to the absurd world of travel by plane.

TSA – The Pokey Pokey


TSA – 12 Banned Items Of Christmas (fyi – You can’t fly, but you can drive across the border with any of these items.)
