Sandra Bacchi's "Watermelons Are Not Strawberries"

Sandra Bacchi is a Pittsburgh based photographer and cinematographer. I discovered her current project, "Watermelons Are Not Strawberries" via Edge of Humanity Magazine.

‘Watermelons Are Not Strawberries’ is a work-in-progress, as I continually seek to better understand myself and increase my awareness of how I react to challenges related to my experiences as a mother. The photos reveal to me how uncertain and obscure my life became with motherhood. At the same time, there is an undeniable clarity in how my daughters lead the way for me to follow a brighter path as I journey through my everyday life.

This is my favorite image from this collection. I adore how the girl's dress blends so well with the tree's summer-lit leaves.

Also check out We Are All In This Together, another of her collections.

Looks like a great mission statement.

The Cure's "A Forest" and the Evolution of a Band

I've heard this song countless times. Today, Youtube popped this up in the recommended list and I happily listened. Seeing other versions in the sidebar from 1979, 1981, and 1992 made me wonder about how different each one sounded. I enjoyed witnessing the evolution of Robert Smith's personal style as well.

Below is the 1979 version, which has a more traditional punk vibe (it says something that I can say "traditional" and "punk" without any sense of irony).

This one is from 1981. Not a huge transition, but I notice a less punk style and something that becomes much more recognized as The Cure.

By 1992, we have a clearly distinctive style that is The Cure, and not confusable with anyone else.

Thanks for giving a few minutes of your journey through the vast wasteland that is the internet. Let me know what you think in the comments, and give me a share, if you're so led.

Darkness shrouds my windows
Cool air slowly dissipating 
The day's heat
All my house asleep
Though voices drift in
Through the open windows

I should sleep, but know the 
Vanity of such endeavors
At least at the moment
So I stare at this screen
Type a poem
Envisioning the coolness
Soon to come

Please come check out more of my poetry at
