To Live

The gift of life.


In its purest form. Water droplets on a green leaf. A symbol. An icon. A touchstone. Water and wonderful deep green.

Technically, it’s spring for another five days. It feels like summer in Southeastern Louisiana. The green of this leaf tells us that. It is not light, nor is it shading towards lime green. It’s rich and dark. A summer leaf.

Interesting time.

Five days brings us to the summer solstice. The longest day of the year. People celebrate. Summer begins in nature, not on the calendar. The planet turns. Days grow shorter. Fall arrives. Winter next. Spring again.

The life cycle.

Stay safe. Enjoy every donut.

      Hi Doug. Thank you. Funny you should mention stock. The Robert Harding folks have reached out to me twice. They want my travel work. They also claim to have help up the old pricing models. I’m reading their prospectus. That might be as far as I go. heh.
