Refrigerator Door Project
I have a :new:  :idea: I want to launch and I need your HELP please for it to succeed.:fingerscrossed:
It's a great way to get featured and be in the running for a subscription.
It is called the :spotlight-left:Refrigerator Door Project :spotlight-right:.
What I am asking you to do is actually quite fun! :nod:
:bulletred:  Take a picture of the front of your refrigerator.
:bulletred:  Then post the photo in your gallery/scraps.
:bulletred:  When you upload it, as one of your keywords put refrigeratordoorproject (all one word).
:star:Don't forget in your description to tell me what you call "it" in your neck of the woods.
YES!... I want to see the cool stuff on the front of your refrigerator door.
I will then [+fav] and put it in my folder called "Refrigerator Door Project" RDP for short.
At a later date, I will do a huge NEWS feature with the participants and disclose the winner of the subscription.

Pillar of Salt
Pillar of Salt
When the angel appears before us, my love
flee, we shall, as commanded.
But one of us –
which will it be?
will look behind.
This season is full of salt
and vinegar
upon itself,
The Apostasy is upon us
and we are waiting,
stuck in living rooms
and dying
stretching not
for salvation
but the remote control.
The tower of Saruman stands regal,
eagles fear its very top
next to us an angel
cries out, wings bleeding.
What magick is it that makes us
look behind
as the city
rises in lava
and judgment?
We clear this wager
from the table,
its pepper shaken
off us
in the hope of brighter days,
when our love was my skin
on your skin and unstoppable.
These wounds need no
salt, their sting
enough to drive us
from the City
where fire reigns.
We are not blessed
but we live
in comfort.

As I get oriented to my new home here in Wisconsin I am slowly beginning to take more pictures, and will slowly add them. It has been a long but very good transition. Thank goodness for DA to keep providing me inspiration. I'm hoping to get out some more this weekend to explore and take pictures. There are so many beautiful places here I'm not sure where to start. A little bit of traveling will help.

I do miss all the folks back in Iowa.

I want to do photos with you again. I have ideas for crazy things and spring is coming; lets make the most of it. And if you'd like, I'd be honored to have you at my show at the Picador next Saturday (not just to take pictures).
Miss you much.
