The Hard Way


H ave you ever shared a dream? We did. This morning. I woke up thinking ,”Whew, what a dream.” I was thinking about what I saw and felt, when from the other side of the bed came, “Oh my God, what a dream.” I started talking about my dream and pretty soon she was fillingContinue reading “The Hard Way”

Time Out Of Mind


W hat are you going to do for the fall? It took me a minute to realize my friend was asking about autumn, not the fall of the country. I really don’t know. I know that I won’t be traveling, at least until sometime until mid to late 2022. I’m hoping that my booster vaccinationContinue reading “Time Out Of Mind”

In A Gentle Way


Saturday. The week ends quietly with a simple study of light and color. It’s something that somebody who claims to be a photographer should understand. Lately, on the socials, I’ve seen a lot of pictures that make me wonder. For every good photograph there seem to be three or four pictures that tell me thatContinue reading “In A Gentle Way”

Naked To The Eye


Walking. It seems that the only pictures I make these days is on a walk, mostly with the all seeing dog. That isn’t working. I’ve been hinting — or, maybe I’ve been clearer than I thought — at not being all I could be right now. I read a longish article in The New YorkContinue reading “Naked To The Eye”

Anywhere


What do you think? Everywhere. They are everywhere. Pictures. I made this picture when I went to the hospital. There. That got your attention. No worries. My doctor is based there. I went there for a “wellness” visit. I was waiting for the elevator and looked out the window. It was storming out there. Wind.Continue reading “Anywhere”

Droplets


Water. I read once that the next big war would not be fought over oil. It would be fought over water. I also read that in this time of proto climate change which includes droughts, higher temperatures around the world and extreme weather events, that there will be more immigration than ever. I read that evenContinue reading “Droplets”

It Starts Somewhere


It’s the season. We talk about summer, summer, more summer and another summer. That’s how it is down here. But, there are phases. We are entering the wet season. The rainy season. Hurricane season. The time when we watch each storm as it forms off the coast of Africa.  Many of those storms don’t amountContinue reading “It Starts Somewhere”

Frozen Planet


Nature’s way. You know that I live in a semi-tropical place. You know that we aren’t built for freezing weather. I bet it never occurred to you that when tropical plants freeze they die. I didn’t ever occur to me until I started living here. That’s not to say every plant dies in cold weather.Continue reading “Frozen Planet”

On Monday


There are days. And, there are days. Yesterday started with a mass shooting in Las Vegas. The numbers kept growing. From two, to 20 to 50, to 58. Dead. And, the wounded. Somewhere well over 500 people. People. Human beings. Attending a concert. Listening to music. Then there was me. I was right. I shouldContinue reading “On Monday”
