Moral hazard is increasingly commonplace. Moral hazard happens when people make decisions that involve risk while they are protected from the risk. Gambling with other people’s money is a moral hazard. So is gambling with other people’s lives. Susan Sarandon’s glib disregard for the lives of immigrants, the poor, people who might lose health insurance and people of color when she encouraged risking a Trump presidency to “heighten the contradictions” is an example of moral hazard. She’s a white woman who … Read more →
Just because you think you’re so pretty,
And just because you think you’re so hot,
Well, just because you think you’ve got something
That no other girl has got,
I love Just Because clothing, not only because the textures are well-done and the mesh is perfectly rigged, because it reminds me of one of my favorite albums as a kid. It belonged to my parents and I played it over and over and over. One of the songs was Just Because.
Here you can see the entire outfit and you can pick up everything at Collabor88 except the nail polish.… Read more →
I like Station Approach by Lily Lovelace. This seems like beginning of one of those old black and white movies. Everything is of that time and place, the vintage cut of the dress, the floral fabric, the stack heels, her hair style, the suitcases, and the train. Black and white only adds to that vintage feeling. Do you think she might be going home for a holiday? The floral dress suggest happy anticipation. There’s a present tucked into her tote, the only modern looking element. Of course, if it were a movie, someone would … Read more →
I like Feed Your Creativity by Jewel Appleton aka Karalyn Hubbard. Do I even have to say why? Her entire stream is filled with similar work, bringing together elements of Second Life® and drawing.

However, picking just one item from her stream was difficult. Her newest picture of birds is darling.

I thought I blogged this a week ago. Oops! First, I have to deal with the quote I used for the title. The internet is a disaster for quote lovers and this is an example of why. Which Helen Thompson? My guess this quote may have come from the wife of the race horse trainer, David Thompson. I am pretty darn sure it did not come from this Helen Thompson and by the way, I am even more sure that fifth quote is also one that belongs to the woman whose life was in racing, not the psychologist studying gender … Read more →
I like Gelato by Michelle Halster. The ice cream cone is placed according to the Rule of Fifths and it is a focal point in this photo, however, its real intensity comes from the eye contact between the two of them, the way they hold each other’s hands. That sense of being in a world of their own is accentuated by the sky forming an arc around them.
