Random Photo: Wm. Blake Tags A Freight

A photo a day keeps the Doctor in play.

I was clicking away with my iParasite as the train was rolling by at about 20-25 miles per hour. I didn’t even see this face, which reminds me of Blake’s visionary heads, an angel of Blake peeking like a shmoo from the side of a freight car, until I uploaded the dpics to my laptop.

So he took his wings, and fled;
Then the morn blushed rosy red.
I dried my tears, and armed my fears
With ten-thousand shields and spears.

Soon my Angel came again;
I was armed, he came in vain;
For the time of youth was fled,
And grey hairs were on my head.

William Blake

  1. My memory of shmoo’s is that they were Al Capp’s conflation of the little blue bird of happiness, a Chinese electronics factory, and Madison Ave:
    if you wanted some thing, and asked nicely, the shmoo would just shit you one.
