Mute Monday: Favorite Desktop Views.















I like my world to reflect my feelings. No. That's not quite correct. I like my surroundings to empathize with my emotions and help me to succeed in my endeavors instead of working against my psyche and contributing to the confusion. Since I do an awful amount of work on my computer I find myself changing the wallpaper to suit my needs. The paper I'm using now but didn't publish is a total eclipse of the sun. I like it because it forces me to realize that light can be obscured yet still be there if we look for it in the right way. One must also be careful not to go blind by looking directly into the sun.

that's a whole lot of pretty things to look at. Groucho looks especially winsome. A good way to start the morning.

NYD said...

Squirrel~ Welcome! It's always good to surround yerself with beauty.
I actually took a few of them pics.

The Grunt said...

The Hindenburg shot is always terrifying.

VE said...

You took a photo of Bogart and Tom Waits? Wow, you got around! The daisies were a nice spring shot.

Corn Dog said...

Widget test okay=>

NYD said...

Grunt~ Yes, it is. But it's good to look upon it and think of the horrors of the man-made world and the highs of Plant, Page, Jones & Bonham. That gets the Juices flowing

VE~ Getting the shots of Bogart and Groucho wer a little difficult. I had to power up the camers with a mocrowave oven and my instant coffee maker to travel back in time.

The daisy shot is from my farm

Corn Dog~ Yesssssssssss! My widget is working just fine.

i rather like the daisies and the funky colored tree.

glad to know your widget is in working order though that seems to be some rather personal info to be divulging.

I never change my wallpaper, but now I'm thinking it's actually a good idea. I like the daisies.

How can you have Bogie without Bacall? ;)

Serena Joy said...

Niiiiiice!

NYD said...

Lime~ Thank you. Those just happen to be my own.

Anon-B~ I need to change the wallpaper. It's kinda like rearranging furniture. It gives me a feeling of refreshment.

Thursdaynext~ While Bacall was incredibly lovely, she was just one in a long line of Humphry's gals.

SJ~ Shweeeet!

You had me hooked with Tom Waites and my son hooked with Pocoyo.

Scary Monster said...

Groucho and Waits STOMP!!!

The Troll said...

I use the one that came with the puter. There was no Mute Monday this week. Next week is: GREATNESS!

Bogie certainly qualifies.

NYD said...

Sorry, Troll baby. I took some liberities and posted one independently.

I guess I used up my Bogart too soon.

Purdy pictures, but I'm still back there with all those Ps, amazed not only at your skill at using them, but also at just how many words there actually are in the English language. Like, even the Danes, a relatively progressive modern society, only have about one word to our every five.

The 4th picture scares me. What is it, a Japanese Port-a-Potty?
