One Story


Yesterday was interesting to say the least. Apparently, every software company released updates this week. Three hours. That’s how long it took me to get to here. I still don’t think that I’m done because I see that I have six Apple upgrades. I won’t do it if it requires a reboot. That takes foreverContinue reading “One Story”

Circle


So it was. It seems that my attitude has gotten worse towards opening schools too soon just because there’s a dangling carrot. They say follow the money and I did. Don’t fully open the schools and the state loses federal funding. I have a couple of words about it. Two words. I won’t write themContinue reading “Circle”

Color of the Blues


Blue seems about right. It’s quiet. It’s comforting. It brings peace. Just as I sat down to write I learned that Little Richard passed. One more death in a season of deaths. Last night I learned that a guy I knew in New Orleans passed. Another death in a season of death. It’s enough toContinue reading “Color of the Blues”

A Little Magic


We could all use a little more magic right about now. So. I photographed storm clouds right before they dumped rain upon us. I added some post production. Well, a lot of post production. Eventually, I made this picture. I can smile at this picture. Maybe you can too. The weekend. I mostly stayed awayContinue reading “A Little Magic”

It’s All Too Sureal


Surreal? That’s probably the least of things around here. It really comes down to people, who as Jerry Seinfeld once said, are the worst. Even though all St. Patrick’s Day parades were cancelled. And, even though the governor put a limitation on crowd sizes, some people just had to gather on Magazine and Bourbon StreetsContinue reading “It’s All Too Sureal”

In Another Time


Another time. Another place. Did you ever wonder how you got here? I don’t mean here as in location. I mean the twists and turns that your life took to get you to your place right now. Right this minute. Lately, that’s what I’ve been doing. It started with the koan, “learning.” That is myContinue reading “In Another Time”

Seeing What isn’t


This is an accidental picture. I wasn’t even thinking about looking for a picture. I looked up and thought “this doesn’t look good.” I did what I could to stop it. I froze time. That’s my magic power. That lasted all of the 1/500th of a second. The clouds kept moving. So did I. I’veContinue reading “Seeing What isn’t”

You Deserve a Break Today


I thought that I was finished with this series. Then, I saw it. One more picture. The one with the golden arches tucked neatly into the bottom right hand corner. I composed it that way. But, it was hidden in the funk of low-lying clouds. Even though it doesn’t look like it, this picture tookContinue reading “You Deserve a Break Today”
