I’m in a cloud-gazing mood. This week, let’s write a cloud into our story/scene/poem/what-have-you. Need it be a boring little fluffy thing in the middle of a bright, blue sky? Well, that’s entirely up to you.

Phones are certainly a part of modern day life. Mobile phones, anyway. This week let’s study the telephone and write some words about it. Just to keep it interesting, though, I’ve gathered up three telephones of a slightly more antiquated variety. Brrrrriiinng!



Roy Lichtenstein, Ohhh… Alright…, 1964. Oil and magna on canvas. Private collection.



Richard Estes, Telephone Booths, 1967. Acrylic on masonite. Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid, Spain.
