Abstracts for the Abstracted (1)—

Mostly people think of modern art when they hear the word “abstract” —

But “abstracted” can have other meanings, such as:

Separated or disconnected; withdrawn; removed; apart; Separated from matter; abstract; ideal; Abstract; abstruse; difficult; Inattentive to surrounding objects; absent in mind.

Yeah. I’m all of the above. And why?

We are moving!

The packers come tomorrow, the loaders come the next day, the deliverers come the day after that; and it’s welcome to a new address, telephone number, zip code. The View is still from the Woods however, even if it’s a different county.

And the only change in our street address is dropping an “e”, from Hawthorne Road to Hawthorn Lane. Plus ça change, plus c’est la meme chose. (As Steve Martin famously said, Those French! They have a different word for everything.)

Anyway, everyone — there’s no way I can get out blog posts for the next few days without making it strictly visual. So here’s a selection of some of my favorite abstract photos. They may not please anyone else, but I like ’em, and they’re doable. One a day for a while? We’ll see. Here goes numéro uno:

    I have been away and have returned to witness your moving chaos 😉 Loved the post about the daffodils and the impermanence of their beauty. It is snowing (again!) as I look out the window. Bonne chance with your move and don’t get so distracted by the abstract that you forget to send all your staying-in-touch info!

    I guess I should have put my French comment on this blog instead… 🙂 Ah, c’est la vie. Interesting, I have a phone call with Alliance Francaise in a mere 5 minutes…

    Quoi, le Petit Prince?
    Le mouton qui menace sa rose, peut-etre?
    Je voulait dire seulement “les affaires”, comme en
    Revenons à nos moutons!
    after having gossiped and chit-chatted enough, it’s time to get down to business — the phone call with the Alliance Française. Fun stuff, I hope?

      Alliance Française = work stuff, but cool work stuff. The call went well (thankfully!); so it was quick and easy. Love it when that happens. 🙂
