New Horizons (per second)
Like a probe to Uranus,
the last of the gas giants.
Only been visited once
by humanoid technology
and technological spacemen
Oh, my, what a nice asteroid belt!
(Might I interest you in some fuel?)
Like a great blob of pizza dough,
Every 16 seconds, heated more and more,
I'm off-centre and tilted (Story of my life)
A whole new speed of space craft and light;
Up close and personal.

Hear the sounds of nature along Spencer Creek... What can you hear? What can you see? Or, simply relax and follow the little yellow ball. Taking some time to just chill out is really good for you says all sorts of research out there (just Google it, if you don't believe me!).
One day I took a walk in #OurValleyTown, Dundas, Ontario. Of all the places, it is my favourite.
My Unstructured NAPOWRIMO, Summer 2016
Because I don't do well with structure when it comes to my creativity...
Original Poetry by Nocola Schneider, EverydayArtEveryDay, July 30, 2016
... And then I had a bit of a creative tantrum, which was super cathartic. I feel much better, thanks.
I'm having a bit of trouble getting in the poetry groove. I guess you can't force these things, So, I'll just relax and let it happen in its own time... After deciding this, I wrote a poem... inspired by an old drawing and my sleeping cat!
Bottom Left: The Process. Bottom Right: Oops, I woke up the cat; Miss Punga does not seem overly impressed.
It's cold and it's snowy in Canada in January but vow to be happy, despite the cold! Wear your favourite winter woollies and get out there! Happiness doesn't just happen so plan for it to happen; in fact, don't accept anything less! LIFE is a special occasion. And each individual moment that make life are special, too. Of course, a good life needs good health, so DANCE with the spirits - Zumba, perhaps! - Stay ACTIVE (& stay hydrated) to stay HEALTHY. GROW a PASSION - a passion for creating. Get your ZZZs and LET's GET HAPPY... get ready!, already! You got this. Make life a meaningful journey... be tasty. Normal? Really? Normal is clearly over-rated. Normal is boring! Never settle FOR GOOD ENOUGH. Imagine the world... it is often irresistibly surprising! Unleash the PASSION. Make a splash! BE STRONG!
Lab 1 -->> Smartphone 30/30...
This project emerged as a result of Lab 1 in Steve Sonheim's Creative Photography Lab - 52 Fun Exercises for Developing Self-Expression With Your Camera.
It's time to go beyond the single snapshot. The objective is to capture an experience by shooting a series of images. Tell a story by taking thirty shots in thirty minutes with your Smartphone. Take a shot of whatever grabs your attention at one-minute intervals. Don't think - just shoot!
Okay, here's what happened...
My ride didn't show up one day last week so I hustled to the bus stop to get the right bus; the one that drops me off right at my door! But, alas, the wrong bus showed up first. (Everybody knows that bus schedules, much like the Pirate Code, are more like guidelines, really.)
When I got off the bus, I faced a thirty minute JOURNEY HOME...
Splashes of colour command a second glance.
Here's to Happy Trails and Happenstance!
... I learned that sometimes wrong is only frame of mind;
Wrong is right if you make it so!
Today is a great day to create a great day.
This site is my attempt at gathering all of my creativity that I have strewn about out 'there'....
