About Me

Short Version: This is my personal blog. My home on the Internet. Here you will find my writings, my photography and posts about writing, photography and anything else that floats my boat.

Long Version: My name is Dart. About 1,000 guys in America may have that as their first or middle name. It can be short for “Darton”, an English word that means quiet, peaceful meadow. Or deer park. Or a forest of deer or something else depending upon your alcohol intake. Obviously it is from England.  Or Scandinavia.

The word “Scape” means an extensive view, scenery, a picture or representation according to dictionary.com. Examples include Landscape, Waterscape, Cityscape, Mindscape, Moonscape, Seascape.

Thus, Dartscape is my view of life, the universe and beyond.  For those of you who are older than the hills, you might remember the very first graphic internet browser, called Netscape.  This was in the mid-1990s.  It was about that time that I purchased the domain name dartscape.com.  Decades later, the browser known as Netscape is long gone, but I continue onward!

Doing what?

Blogging about:

  • The art of writing and my efforts to have more of my fiction published.
  • The art of photography and my effort to have more of my photography published.
  • Nonsensical thoughts that scamper into my mind from time to time.
  • Anything else I think of.

During the Pandemic Crisis of 2020 I started posting jokes. I have a somewhat English sense of humor so not everything I find stupid hilarious will make you laugh. Trigger Warning: These jokes may be considered “off color”.  If you are a Karen or extensively sensitive, I suggest you refrain from reading my jokes, or pretty much anything else on this site.
