I Go Weak

Admiring this brilliant photo by Steve Gingold I pondered the words for my title. I’d found the photo on his blog, requested permission, got a prompt response, and wanted to publish. I considered Silent Admiration (my response when I first saw the photo) but it seemed too ho-hum. I focused on the beauty of colour and form and faintly heard the strains of Alison Moyet singing these lines…

I go weak. I go weak. Weak in the presence of beauty.

        1. Ok.. so I was clicking on the hound photo OR the Argus name in notifications, associated with your comments. Clicking on either would result in me being taken to a screen showing a background picture of a music concert and a message saying “independentsguide.wordpress.com is no longer available. The authors have deleted this site”.


          1. Hmmm … at the bottom it says “Websites” and lists my two sites. Clicking on the ‘Dreaming Cavalier’ will take you to my nice, gentle, ‘easy-listening’ website.

            Clicking on Cassandric will take you to my ‘social observations and comment’ website where I indulge a freedom to speak freely that few people have ever had/used. I mostly try not to offend but don’t hold back (which may explain why I attract so little interest?).

            On my sites anyone may say anything about anyone or anything, so long as they (a) keep it reasonably seemly; and (b) accept that anyone else likewise.

            And I’m often a sarcastic old poop—when all else fails, really, what have we got left?

            1. Yes, I’ve seen what you describe when I’ve clicked on your gravatar elsewhere, but when you show up in Notifications it doesn’t work like that. Maybe I can get a screen-shot of it if I try.


            2. I’ve sent you two screenshots via email to show you how the dog pic and argus name are associated with an outdated site. If I click on them WP tries to load the old site.


    1. Hah! to you too. I thought you’d dropped off the planet.. haven’t had this terrible flu that’s going around have you? We’re just getting over it. Maybe you’ve put a new post up – I’ll check .. but I can’t even see your site… what’s going on?
