An Indie lovin’ yet accessible; skeptical but wide-eyed; sarcastic and bittersweet male with wife, two teen boys and a dog; who likes his indie pop (me, not the dog) with good, esb beer; and all things a bit arty, weird but fun (it must be fun).


A Strange Day no.216 by derekdavalos
A Strange Day no.216
A Strange Day no.216, by Grand Duchy (a Cure song), covered by Frank Black and Violet Clark

And I laugh as I drift in the wind 
Dancing on a beach of stone 
Cherish the faces as they wait for the end 
Sudden hush across the water 
And we're here again 
And the sand 
And the sea grows 
I close my eyes 
Move slowly through drowning waves 
Going away 
On a strange day 

Yin Yang face imagery by DonkeyHotey…

Hi Kanchan, thanks for your comments. And you have been giving me nice comments for not "watching me!"

I do love AlteredMixedCollages and the gallery of work there. I am uploading my latest right... now.

Cheers as usual, Derek
