Outside Inside

Our inside output
Does not need
Your outside input

So keep your output out
Lest we put our input in!


Little things about our English language humor me, like ‘parking in the driveway’ and ‘driving in the parkway,’ or how one sits up at night but sits down during the day. Similarly, the close proximity of contrasting words in phrases such as “I’ll be along shortly” or “That was hardly soft” tickle my funny bone. So it was that in an email recently a friend used the phrase “outside input.” I no longer remember the context, but the juxtaposition of those two words stuck in my head and begged me to make something of them. And so I did. It’s not much, but it’s something. June 17, 2017.

      1. I have the DVDs and have watched them several times. He came to our area years ago, but my son was only 6 days old, and I could neither leave him nor take him to the concert, so I missed it. Victor Borge died that year. I made the right choice, just one of those bittersweet decisions.
