Transmogrify

Transmogrify – transform, especially in a surprising or magical manner. for example, “the cucumbers that were ultimately transmogrified into pickles”

Here is my visual interpretation of transmogrify.

The sidewalk was transmogrified into a bank building.

Enjoy the picture and I’ll see you next week.

Pictured here is the Super-duper Extra Long Kentucky rifle pictured with its inventor Ignacio Broderick Leighton. This little known piece of historical trivia was very important to the early pioneers as they crossed the Appalachians and settled in along the Ohio River.

Quest

The above image depicts a man on a quest. In past eras, this role has been primarily reserved for the male gender, but today anybody can go on a quest – male or female — no questions asked.

After contemplating the subject matter for a second or two, I decided to jot down a few characteristics of a person, who has set on a quest.

  1. One specific goal  —  In this case we do not know what this man’s goal might actually be, but we do know that he has set himself on a narrow path, symbolized by the pole he is walking on.
  2. Traveling Light  — Traveling light symbolizes dedication to the task at hand. In many cases, material objects are excess baggage.
  3. Little Room for Error — As in this case and with many other quests there is not much room for variation. If you veer to the right or the left, you fall off the path.
  4. No distractions  —  In a true quest, the traveler or voyageur cannot be distracted by events along the way. In this case, the man must ignore the crane. It is a bad distraction.
  5. Search for truth — Historically, quests have always been associated with a better understanding of the laws of Nature and human endeavors. That is probably true today as well.

This post is all about going over the edge. This is something that you definitely do not want to do at this place, even if you are in a wooden barrel.

In this current election cycle, “going over the edge” seems to have become the norm. Perhaps, if some of the major candidates would cross the border and consider going over the edge from this viewpoint, they might think twice.  And then again they might not, for sometimes they appear to be in a self destructive mode.

Rare

This white dinosaur (brontosaurus, I think) was spotted while touring through Quebec on a 15-speed Univega bicycle. I do believe that this creature is quite rare, because I have not seen one since, not even at Jurassic Park.
