    Today, I thoroughly appreciated being able to take a day off from work just for some personal down time, and I enjoyed the time away a great deal. It’s not that I did a whole lot. It’s more that there were some good memorable moments throughout the day. And the day started with a...

    They Yell At Him

    by  •  • 1 Comment

    They yell at him because he was coach here, manning the helm in the famous Pit, and he left and became coach there instead, in the pavilion where Wooden built a dynasty, where making just the Sweet Sixteen is pretty much a failure. They yell at him for only winning two-thirds of his schedule,...

    Valentine’s Egg

    For Valentine’s Day night, I did what comes natural to me. I watched Return of the Jedi, to round out my revisit to the original three films in the franchise. I was about two-thirds of the way through the film when it dawned on me… Darth was a cold mean man because his heart...

    It's a dark filter.

    Last night, I recalled I still had a set of neutral density filters in my camera bag I had never used before, and most specifically, and ND-10 filter that I had picked up on sale a month ago at Amazon. I determined I’d go somewhere after work this evening and give the ND-10 filter...

    It was a true Monday today. I came home tonight and sat down to watch a TV program to step out of it all for an hour, but, like my eyes of late, my hearing related to the TV is not so good at times as well. I don’t know if the issue is...

    Today, for whatever reason, I decided it was the most important time ever to get some stuff out of the house, and that stuff I needed to remove meant the clothes I had separated out years ago- not days, or weeks, or even months ago, but yes, years ago- which have sat all this...

    Not Today

    Another Saturday morning at the coffee shop. The breakfast was tasty and energizing, but I return to my standard state here. Another perusal of previously written words on a project. Another rabbit trail off onto Wikipedia and the Boeing website for more B-17 information. Another gathering of random facts. It took 108 planes over...

    In Gratitude For Beauty

    by  •  • 2 Comments

    I worship You, Lord, God of all beauty, Who has given, by thought and word, the severe majesty of mountains and valleys, sunlight kissing the young woman’s face, the satellite’s view into dark infinity, cool air on my neck on a hot afternoon, layers of violins striding over deep cello, the elevating hug of...

    I thought I’d walk up Central a little this evening after work to see if there was anything worth shooting. I am still trying to understand the exposure triangle and how to use the camera’s settings out of Automatic mode to get a nice picture. The light was golden on the tall buildings north...
