Reboot ~

The Cave is Undergoing a Revamp for the Spring

I want to:

Stay SFW – edgy yes – funny yes – fired for visiting – no

 A Reblog once a month – I don’t think we, as bloggers, reward good content enough.

Post my own photos and art as much as possible – a free-range chicken, all organic with no copyright infractions is the goal.

More projects and challenges with other bloggers. This is the center of the blogging watermelon – it really is! Making connections and friends. Sweetness!

My own challenge of hitting every type of blog genre in 2016 with an attempted post.

I mean all the favs:

Fashion- Music- Art – Photo – Food – Healing – Religious – Political – Conspiracy – Poetry – Sports – Books – Fiction– Redneckism (is that one?)  – Travel – Fitness –  Love – Sex – Collectible Coins – Movies –  Cartoon, Antiquing, Geek, Ancient Greek … etc., etc., and etc. (yes – I will take suggestions)

I want to do as many as I can – with no limits on if something is too edgy or too sketchy — How far can I push myself? Don’t know? Are you scared? — yeah …me too…ain’t it grand!

If you want to know why I want to do a blog genre mash-up bust-up house party with strobe lights and underground techno music

I think that we should all write about *everything – in the writing and discussion is where answers and clarity come from.

The web is better when we make it better – so yeah –I am going to write about it all!

I guess the short version of the above is:  I’m doing everything and some of it twice – so keep up please – and enjoy the ride!

* Not to worry – I will give fair warning if it’s going to be something that would shock you!

This is a drawing I did for a poem by Tiffany @ tiffanybeingfree

It was great to try a sketch from her idea. The poem deals with some intense subject matter and the process of healing. It is an honor to help in this small way.

Bloggers working together –  Always a rewarding experience. For me, it knocks me out of my comfort zone and makes me swim a little harder. I need that because it is too easy to get complacent and start doing boring stuff — Helping others makes my own work better! So if you have an idea for a little co-bloggery with the cave — Please send it my way and maybe we can do something!

 

Next, we head to a blogging challenge with my friend Mek from Australia @ https://10000hoursleft.wordpress.com/ who likes to write stories based on artwork.

And I got to pick one — So I took a trip to Maine for a little Wyeth theme.

Chambered Nautilus by  Andrew Wyeth

The challenge is to write a short fiction piece based on this painting – I will leave the length of it up to you (I’m thinking 500 words or so?)  – this is a no stress “walk about” kind of challenge. I am going to try fiction for the first time (yea- me!), but if you want to write a poem or something else, that is cool. I only ask that you do it sometime in March and let me know so I can link them all together. This could be fun.

————————————————————————–

And finally:

This is my home and you are all welcome in for a virtual cup of tea, coffee or beer anytime. We are always open!. No need to remove your  shoes or make a fuss – you may want to pet the dog so she knows you are cool. Other than that — relax.

I want everybody to just enjoy the cave.

Mi casa su casa

Cheers and here we go!

  1. Nice! Extensive renovation work at The Cave by the sounds of it! Always enjoy dropping by, Wayne – I’ll bring some cake!

    1. I am looking at that print right now Cheryl! I double matted and framed it for my mother-law which passed to my wife when she died — and is now in my office here at the cave — I love that Wyeth. But – my favorite Wyeth — and my favorite painting of all is “Soaring” . I loved it as a print in a book — and when a Wyeth exhibition came to my town with that painting —- Oh My God! I can’t tell you what I felt – Like a hyper-reality — like reaching into the soul of an artist and having him reach into yours —- Yeah – I will write more about art.

      1. So Wayne, your reboot is already off to an inspirational start.
        I read your post, the art/writing challenge immediately set off a bunch of questions in my head, I scribbled them down on paper. I didn’t realize there was going to be a challenge a half hour ago and now I have a submission!:D

  2. I’ll have a black coffee, no sugar thsnks, Wayne. We call that a long black in Aus- I think other parts call it an Americano- others still probsbly just call it coffee haha.

    Oooh…nice challenge painting- will have something for you this month!

    Spot on that writing and discussion is where clarity comes- one of the reasons I write!

    Congrats on the re- boot, looking forward to the genre adventures you take us on 😊
