You Just Have To


T here was big news in New Orleans yesterday. New Orleans Saints (American football) Coach Sean Payton retired. The city is in shock. Some say it’s just a game. I think that the team impacts the city in many ways. Allied jobs rise and fall because of what the team does. He’s an honest man.Continue reading “You Just Have To”

Fast Car


B efore you ask, and I’m glad that you might, I’m good. I’ll stay on the lookout. As they say, no news is good news. B ack to my band of the hour. I’ve drenched the house in their music. They are very, very good. They may be one of the few “new” bands thatContinue reading “Fast Car”

Believe in Life


C atching up. Or, Ketchup. Just as I predicated, violence begets violence. There was a protest in Wisconsin. Black people came out to protest the Rittenhouse Verdict. Standing guard on the perimeter where serious looking Black men armed with long guns also known as AR-15s. That verdict made everyone fair game on the street. WeContinue reading “Believe in Life”

Not California


R escued from my archives. I found this picture while I was looking for something else. That’s sort of the way I make pictures, on the way to some place else. The funny thing about the picture is that the subject doesn’t exist. Not anymore. It was a designer’s idea as part of the landscapingContinue reading “Not California”

Summer Days


N ew work. It’s been a little while. I took myself for a walk. I went to a little park that has benches, sat down and took some time for myself. The bench that I sat was our favorite bench. It belonged to the all seeing dog, Sophie Rose. I don’t know what it didContinue reading “Summer Days”

Daring Mind


T echnology is never my friend. We’ve long had an Audible account. I thought I might like to listen to a book while I work. After all, podcasts and a book being read is about the same thing. Along comes Apple. Between their normally high rate of paranoia and the slowness of their server I’mContinue reading “Daring Mind”

Wandering


I believe that by being pain free for the past week or so is resulting in much better seeing. I think my consumption of necessary pain meds created a sort of brain fog. That’s not to say I was walking around loaded out of my mind. I wasn’t. I didn’t. And, I don’t. But, thereContinue reading “Wandering”

Downhill From Everywhere


Yesterday was a day. Did you ever have a day when technology was not your friend? When saved passwords were not saved? When nothing loaded? When the internet was so slow that you had to perform a hard reset? That was yesterday. Let’s hope things go a little better today. Let’s hope people settle down.Continue reading “Downhill From Everywhere”

Only the Song Survives


On Palm Sunday. The world is upside down. Time has no meaning. People are living in fear. Stupidity is the order of the day. Still. There is hope. Even though the current state of change is very negative, there are those of us who think that if we make it to the other side thereContinue reading “Only the Song Survives”
