    I suppose one must look up from their latte and recognize the horrors of the world, but if we were to always be on the lookout for the Hamburglar, wouldn’t we miss those delightful sights of beauty and joy, accompanied by Enya’s juojenum-quavering warbles? Balance. It’s all about balance. We will never catch a glimpse of the beautiful transgendered fey if we are too busy worrying about someone’s sweaty mitts snatching our Mickey D’s.

    (Is it just me, or does the Hamburglar share a passing resemnlence with Opie Taylor?)

    (Cor blimey, look what his remarkable photo has inspired!)

    my dear jocelyn, how you manage to weave the silly with the sublime is certainly inspired by the muses….whether or not they have innocent behinds, i know not.

    you and groom are both brilliant.

    That really is a stunning photo. So amazing, in fact, that I nearly missed the Hamburgler. What a pity that would have been.

    Poetry?! On O Mighty Crisis?! And an original poem at that? I’ll have to check and see if that snow outside is coming from the sky or if the deep fiery depths have not gone cold and frosted the ground above. 😉

    I should expect PBS to be calling The Groom quite soon with an offer to do a documentary on his amazing photographic skills. A beautiful shot.

    Let me sail, let me sail, let the Orinoco flow.
    Let me reach, let me beach on the shores of Tripoli.
    Let me sail, let me sail, let me crash upon your shore.
    Let me reach, let me beach far beyond the Yellow Sea.
    De de de de de…
    Sail away,…

    Damn, it looks like you’re reduced to semi-colons and binge eating.

    Unless maybe the photo is just a fluke? You can always hope for that.

    I am so NEVER letting my man take a photography class. I so need to be the better one at that 😛

    Gorgeous photo. I too get jiggey with Dr Seuss 🙂

    your hubby does take a purdy picture.I just about switched to autopilot and damn near packed a backpack…

  10. Green Girl in Wisconsin says:

    You have skillz, madame. Truly.

  11. kmkat says:

    Gorgeous photo. Cold and shivery and crystalline and almost scary. Unlike Bruegel’s painting, which is warm and homey, butt scratching and all.

  12. Chantal says:

    That’s one stunning photo

  13. Logophile says:

    I love Auden, and that is a perfect example of why.
    I also worship Dr Theo, I’m with you there.

    Groom is a photographic GENIUS.
    BTW? How are the genuis’ tender bits?
    Better, I hope

    I always leave your posts for last when I’m flipping through my google reader – just because I so enjoy savoring your beautiful writing and subtle humor.

    It’s a good thing that I did that today though, because even though the humor is not lost on me… the time I spend reading blogs particularly on days when I’m “snowed in” (by choice, not by nature) is time I could spend with my boys. And I would have stopped reading the blogs. Which is what I’m doing right after I click “publish”.

    Now we know the hamburglar isn’t too busy scratchin’ and sippin’ to enjoy the remarkable beauty in this messy world 🙂

  16. jess says:

    I love that poem And that painting. And now I have Groom’s photo to go along with them. Nice.

    (Oh and did not, BTW, but I still love you. Glad you like them 🙂

  17. the cubicle's backporch says:

    Wow… that is a great photo.

    And suddenly now I crave McDonalds. Was there a subliminal message in there somewhere? 😉

  18. Jill says:

    You always manage to crack me up, even when I’m not expecting it. I think your poem is divine.

  19. heartinsanfrancisco says:

    Great photo! I’m familiar with Jim Brandenburg’s work, and your husband ain’t no slouch neither.

    His painting with and without the Hamburglar reminds me of Goya’s Maja paintings in which she appears in the exact same pose both dressed and naked.

    And don’t knock binge eating. It’s a rough job but somebody’s got to do it.
