I’m 60 now (well, actually, this Friday, Dec. 4). I have acquired a wee bit knowledge during those 21,900 days. Some of it has come from 1.) simply living to be 60, and 2.) 40 years of hanging around guys like these, some 15-20 years older than I. Men like Mr. Clarence (age 83) and Mr. William (age 74).

Older cats sort of adopted me since I was about 20 (I was usually the young-blood in the nightclubs). I always had the voices of those with 15-to-20 or more years of life’s experiences talkin’ in my ear (usually with gravelly, whisky-and-smoked-toned voices, spoken at a quick staccato). Looking back I was a lucky kid in that I’ve always listened to them - I didn’t tune them out. ~ View On Black

 

Much of what they said has helped, and most of their observations about this life have turned out to be fairly accurate. And, that accuracy has grown, not only in reach, but in breadth, with each ensuing decade I’ve endured: 20’s, 30’s, 40’ 50’s.

 

True they don’t know CD’s or DVDs or my hot-shot, modern fishing equipment. But hell, my grandkids have to setup my cell phone for me, program my DVR and tell me the name of damn-near everyone on TV and in music videos (“who the hell is that,” seems to be my most used expression nowadays). Yeah, eventually, we all find a comfort zone in this life – some nuts-and-bolts era we slide through – and technical time simply stops there.

 

But not human time. It is still one of my life’s savored pleasures to sit out by some water and fish with these older, wiser guys and listen to their stories. They came from a tougher time. A time that made boys into men, and girls into women. They are made of tougher stuff than my group. I still need, and seek out their encouragement.

 

And, I’ve much yet to learn from them. I like to think of myself as still having a lot of growing up to do: more development as an emotional, mental, spiritual and artistic being. A bit more guidance from the elders can’t hurt that cause.

As I said, Mr. Clarence is 83, Mr. William, 74. I always address elders I know by their first name, with a Mr. up front; Mr. Clarence, Ms. Edythe. It is not as formal an address as Mr. or Mrs Smith, but still one of respect to those who, most certainly, have earned it in my eyes. They do this far more in the American south, than up north.

 

But, anyway, "you shoulda’ seen them two gentlemens sprinting up and down the shoreline, tamin’ that 15-pound fish" (a steelhead). SPRIGHTLY and patient! – a lesson in itself and an example of hope for the years to come.

 

"That fish wasn’t gonna’ run away from them, that’s for sure. And it didn’t. And they giggled and laugh liked young men about the whole thing." ;-)

The photo was taken as I was exiting a subway station in Manhattan.So,who actually was the Lady in Red in history?Some say it was Polly Hamilton,played by Pamela Sue Martin in the 1979 movie drama titled "The Lady in Red".Polly Hamilton (née Edythe Gertrude) was one of the two women who left the Biograph Theater with American gangster John Dillinger the night he was gunned down by FBI agents in 1934 as they were closing in on him.In the film Polly Hamilton was coaxed into wearing a red dress as a means of identifying and betraying Dillinger to the FBI agents.

In real life however the Lady in Red was actually the other woman in the trio,a Romanian and former madam named Anna Sage (née Cumpanaș).Facing deportation for "bad moral behavior"Sage used Dillinger as a bargaining chip to gain permanent residency in the U. S. as well as get cash reward for his arrest,so she tipped him off to the Feds.On the night of Dillinger's betrayal Sage wore a white blouse and reddish-orange skirt.After leaving the theater with Dillinger and Polly Hamilton,Sage separated herself from them.Then with her skirt turning red from the theater lights,she walked in front of Dillinger.Ohhh,I got it!:open_mouth:

The late afternoon sun strikes the front entrance, as if trying to inject some life into this old home.

 

Built in 1930 by Edythe Merriam MacKay with her father's money, the estate was used as the summer home of the MacKay family. Designed by Arthur H. Sharpe, the home incorporated all of the latest amenities; the grounds are typical of estate planning of the 1930's, and are a great place to take your camera for a walk.

My first visit to East Lansing didn't disappoint. The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum is a fascinating structure. This vantage point provides a dramatic entry onto campus as facade and curtain walls soar effortlessly. Yet as you walk around the structure there are portions that feel surprisingly heavy and clunky. In the end the bold design acts as to counter to the rest of the traditional buildings on campus which is perfectly suitable for the modern art displays housed inside.

You can flap your wings frantically, but you'll never take off until you let go.

- based on the wisdom of Edythe Miller (my Mom)

  

Happy Feathery Friday

 

This is the guest bedroom, at my Aunt Edythe’s house. As I sat on the edge of the bed, smelling the coffee, scrambled eggs, buttermilk biscuits (with honey or alaga syrup) and bacon cooking, waiting for Edythe to call us with one word, “breakfast." I thought I should take an image. Oh, and everyone says "Good Morning" and smiles when they see you come to the table. This was taken during my spring 2008 visit.

 

goear.com/listen.php?v=644b588 - Clair de Lune ~ View On Black

 

Spring whispered to me through the open windows and curtains. There are few sounds except the sound of quiet - remember that? An occasional car, the birds, rain, dishes being removed from the cupboard, a quiet voice here and there. I am a child again.

 

Aunt Edythe is my Grandmother’s sister (Gramma’ Idell). Edythe Gillette Nance is her name. Gramma died at 98, so Aunt Edythe is about 93 or 94. They live a long time in that family. Whene I was a kid, all of us cousins used to playfully put the letter “E” in the middle of everyone’s name. That stood for “everlasting.” If only that were true.

 

Stepping into my Gramma’s house or Aunt Edythe’s house, is like stepping back into time. Their homes have always been elegant, simple, tasteful, exceedingly comfortable and welcoming. The wood is old yet cared for; exquisitely polished,warm and soothing to the eyes, touch and smell. The colors have always been clean pastels, with accents of primary colors here and there. Comforting, serene and nurturing environments.

 

The China gets used for dinner (though never for breakfast) and I used to drink iced tea from the crystal (I am still trying to recapture the taste of that tea in those glasses). Linen tablecloths and candles are always on the dining room table; silk and down on the beds.

 

See that hair brush? I even dared to brush my beard a little bit. Heavenly.

 

The overall feeling to their homes, and these intimate rooms, is and always has been, of a slower, more orderly and elegant time. A time when being a guest, and having a guest in your home, meant something special. There exists in this room a sense of…gentle and gentile civility, comfort and culture.

 

Oh, did I mention clean? We kids thought Lysol, Ammonia and Bleach were the names of cousins we'd simply not yet met. :-)

 

The adjective "class" is difficult to describe, especially as it is all but lost in today's world (this is neither a lament nor a putdown), but they had it. Think white dresses and gloves on the women and girls, and ties and hats (removed) on the men and boys, just for Sunday late-afternoon dinner at one's relatives. Simply not done today - anywhere.

 

While at Gramma Idell’s or Aunt Edythe’s, one can caress the 24 hours in one's day, instead of counting it down.

 

I don’t think anything in this room is less than 30 years old. Most things are 40 to 70. It has changed much in the 50 plus years I can remember visiting it. This pace and style of life is lost now. Our parents, the Depression and WWII group tried to keep it up, but the 1950’s quickened life’s pace too much. We kids (the Boomers) let it go completely. Tis’ a pity.

 

So now, I shall just have to continue to luxuriate in this room once a year or so when I visit Aunt Edythe…until she is gone. But, at least, then, I have images to look at…until I too am gone.

 

Once again, my words feel inadequate. Can you feel the lives I am writing about? From this small view of a guest bedroom? I hope so.

Michigan State University has a new art museum: Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum. Finding a vertical line here is difficult. The museum is the work of Zaha Hadid.

The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University has few vertical lines. Even the nearby trees tried to conform to its "lines". This is a window facing toward Grand River AV on an overcast night. The museum is the work of Zaha Hadid.
