"When I say artist I mean the man who is building things - creating, molding the earth - whether it be the plains of the west - or the iron ore of Penn. It's all a big game of construction - some with a brush - some with a shovel - some choose a pen."
- Jackson Pollock (1912-1956)

"You should always know when you're shifting gears in life. You should leave your era; it should never leave you."

Lines of rhyme flowing from the music of the wren
Sonnets sitting like angels atop clouds resting on hilltops
Waiting to instill those with pen and ink to script lyrics to enlighten
There are triolets among the petals of coneflowers, pink, red and yellow..."

As tumbleweeds start rollin' up against the fence.
Then the wind blows in a chill, and I catch a whiff of chlorophyll.
That storm must have dropped a streak of hail.
As the front draws closer still, lightning strikes just past the hill,
Hank crowds my leg, tryin' to hide his tail..."
- from An Inch or Two of Rain by Jerry Schleicher (1946-2015)

(Don't look too closely at the nameplate on this building, lest you experience a letdown. While the old Drummond, Montana, train station building has found a new life at Fort Missoula, the pictured building is of more recent vintage, but still is an important feature on the Fort grounds.)

In my mind and in my car,
we can't rewind we've gone too far..."
This shapely taping setup can be seen up close and in person at the Livingston, Montana, Depot Museum's Film In Montana display. Good times.
