Vaudevillians

Mural of Vaudeville stars on Elisdore Theatre Salem, OR

Smiling, we remember

The laughs they brought to us in days of old

Stars of Vaudeville

Senryu

This mural is in downtown Salem, Oregon on the back of the Elsinore Theatre. It was painted in 1984 by art professor Jim Mattingly. It is titled “Theatrical Heartscape” and depicts characters from vaudeville because the theatre has a long history of vaudeville. On the mural are—W.C. Fields, Theda Bara, Marlene Dietrich, and Charlie Chaplin

A Classic

Image of Clark Gable and Vivian Leigh in Gone With The Wind

What a novel idea said he

Nurtured in conspiracy

Yet, born out of necessity

It’s words still live quite timelessly

Syllabic Verse

“Gone With The Wind” written in 1936 by Margaret Mitchell is still my favorite novel and movie of all time

My Jewel

Sting of Pearls plant

Living String of Pearls

Sits upon my window sill

Silent Succulent

Haiku

(I just love my String of Pearls plant that I purchased last summer at our local Farmer’s Market. It sits on the a southern facing windowsill in my bedroom and really seems to like the filtered sunlight that streams thru as it has been steadily growing beautifully.)
