It's All Fun and Games... Until...

It's all in the delivery.

Having my jokes misunderstood is one of the banes of my bane-laden life.

Self face-punchApparently my wit is too dry, my sardonic jests too inscrutable or overly complicated, or my delivery too deadpan. This has been my experience in print as well as face to face.

You think you're among people who know where you're coming from, and then you find out, not so much.

Anyone can send up a lead balloon now and then, come a clunker, blow a punch line, or just plain be completely misunderstood. When it seems to happen too frequently, combined with a self-consciousness about being mis-taken in a bad way, I begin to wonder if there's something intrinsically wrong with me.

So I figure, what can I do? And I joke about it. Hope you get it.

Which has no standard form.

English is a funny tongue
 Which has no standard form.
To sounds and words and letters,
 There isn't any norm.

Just for one example,
 "Alarm" and "Harm" and "Farm" —
What logic cannot tell is why
 They do not rhyme with "Warm."

The Art of

Twelve Yantras

A kaleidoscope of meditative imagery.

Twelve new yantras have been added to The Art of Yantras collection, where the whole "yantra" thing is explained. These originally appeared earlier this year as Daily Doodles, but in these images, the Doodle lettering has been swept off, the yantras are more extensive and images displayed on the page are slightly larger, and slightly sharper (PNGs instead of the Doodle JPGs). A larger (2000x2000) version is available.

Go to the The Art of Yantras page or start with the first of the new images,
Seraphic Host.
Mindful Webworks Marketplace
The 1997 yantras are available on various merchandise in the Yantras Shop at CafePress. The new images are being added to the shop, starting with the first one.
