• I Saw The Light (Meter)

    After adjustments: f/8, 1/30 second, ISO 100.

    It was a good day at work: quiet, slow progress made on projects. My eating has slipped a little the last two days- sugar has found me a few times more than it should have, including in a raspberry mocha today- but that’s okay. I did have a talk with Tim this afternoon that...

    I got up at 4AM this morning to try and get outside before the super moon started eclipsing and then blood mooning after that. Last night, I laid out everything I thought I needed for the morning on the table in the living room: the camera bag, a portable chair, a tripod, headlamp, mittens,...

    Shoot for the Moon

    It’s almost 10, but I am going to try it. I’ll try to get up and get some photos of the super blue blood moon in the early morning. The camera bag is laid out, and a camping chair, and a headlamp, and a coat. My camera does not have the most powerful lens...

    The Discomfort of Discipleship

    by  •  • 0 Comments

    It is a recurring call, the coaxing of Christ, to constantly forget your follies and to leave yourself for the welfare of those around you. The kingdom of heaven exists on the currency of love alone- a love which is open-handed, unconditional, and which is focused not on the giver, but on the receiver....

    It wasn’t a second Christmas celebration actually, but kind of, because today, after we had recently finished off the last of the batch of Christmas-only cookies we had made at the beginning of this month, we had the novel idea of making a few more. So this afternoon I went over to my folks,...

    A Good Day

    Following the leader.

    It was a good full day today. I got up at a good hour and spent a few more of those at Flying Star, posing as a writer, but really mostly watching some old training videos from back in the 1940’s on how to preflight and start up a B-17. Why? I started a...

    Gratitude

    by  •  • 0 Comments

    Note to Self: Learn to say “Thank You” more. In words. On notes and cards. In posts. On phone calls. Gratitude lifts the eyes and the heart upward and outward. It reinforces happiness, or sparks it if it lacks. It constructs contentment, and celebrates one’s fortunes, not lingering upon deficits. And it reminds us...

    Tonight my sister kidnapped my mom and took her off downtown for a movie in a museum theater. My dad had a quandary- he could just sit at home and enjoy watching an old movie, or he could meet me for dinner. The salad and bread sticks appeared to win the day. I met...

    The Muses Sleep

    by  •  • 0 Comments

    I came into this year with a feeling of urgency, with a need to be, as I felt it, proactive about love and craft. I would change my daily patterns and alter my life course. I would dredge up love and write madly, if only to force my muse to stay by me. Three...
