I knew Linda’s prompt this week was “pretty” and I wasn’t sure I would write a post, but this morning, this link: http://wordwomanpartialellipsisofthesun.blogspot.com/2016/11/the-corundum-conundrum-sapphires-rubies.html landed in my inbox.
Steph writes a blog that is a cross between science, often geology, and wordplay. She often has pretty photos of rocks, electron microscope patterns, geologic formations, and today, some very pretty gems.
Her blog is not on WordPress, so it is hard to re-blog other than by link, but I hope people will pop over to Steph’s blog and see some beautiful corundum in various colors.
Thank you, Steph, for sharing pretty pictures and words with us!

I am thrilled to share with you a new videopoem from the Boiler House Poets!
During our recent reunion residency at the Studios at MASS MoCA, we collaborated on a poem about our beloved Boiler House and each recorded her own lines.
Marilyn McCabe, one of our stalwart Boiler House Poets who has experience with videopoems, graciously handled all the photography and editing to produce the amazing final product.
Steph has posted some amazing photos of corals, along with a post explaining more about them. Check it out! https://wordwomanpartialellipsisofthesun.blogspot.com/2016/07/bum-in-ocean-in-situ-microscopy-polyps.html
Time to share another post from Stephanie, who loves science and words and fabulous photos!
This post features the strength of honeycombs, hexagons, and Fibonacci sequences with gorgeous photos of very tiny organisms:
Thanks to all my blogger friends for their advice on my new theme!
I looked through my photos and found one I thought would crop well as a new header image.
Boiler House Poets and people familiar with North Adams, Massachusetts may recognize the street sign. It was just outside the apartments where we stayed during the Tupelo Press/Mass MoCA residency. (If you want to know more about the residency, check my blog archive for November, 2015.)
I will leave it to my readers to ponder the deep inner meaning of Center Street being one way and what that has to do with the Top of JC’s Mind…
I still wish I could make the title/tagline font larger, but I think it doesn’t look quite so tiny with the header image breaking it apart from the larger-font post title.
It just occurred to me that my link to my “About” page got lost in the shuffle of the theme change. I guess that will be my next problem to solve.
I’d appreciate any comments/musing/interpretations on the new header image.
