More Water


Summertime. Sometimes, the living is easy. This was one of those times. I was sitting by a pool when the clouds started dancing around as a seasonal storm was getting ready to pass through. I couldn’t even see to focus because the light was so strong. I just pointed my smart phone, hoped for theContinue reading “More Water”

Frozen Again


  Summer. Now, I’m seeing pictures everywhere. The ten best pictures of summer project is coming along nicely. Much to my surprise, so is the dumpster project. My book projects are in the phase of, “are we there yet?” We were doing a little grocery shopping when I turned down the aisle in the frozenContinue reading “Frozen Again”

On a Sunday


” If my words did glow with the glow of sunshine. And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung, Would you hear my voice come through the music? Would you hold it near as it were your own?

She is one helluva blues belter in the mode of Janis Joplin. We met them in Memphis. The redContinue reading “Primary Colors”

That’s film to those of you who grew up in the digital age.I’m posting this picture now because one of the things that I did in the past few weeks is that IContinue reading “LA Boots”

Viewed from its back side, which faces the road, it is probably one of the most painted and photographed places in The United States. But, seen from theContinue reading “Blue Light”

One Time, One Night


A wise man was telling stories to me, about the places he had been, the things that he had seen. — Los Lobos. I may not be all that wise, but those lyrics by Los Lobos (Just another rock and roll band from East Los Angeles) sum up the core of storyteller. I’m just tellingContinue reading “One Time, One Night”
