I'm exhausted so I have a very mundane, very short blog post to share for today. My dojo attended an all day aikido seminar at a local college...a good time was had by all...I photographed the first half and practiced the second. I'm ready to call it a day... 317@59 Continue reading

My tea tasted like a different time and a different place this morning. Funny how the senses work, the connections that are made in the brain. I can't say whether it's comfortable or uncomfortable...it just is. My mom is transitioning out of her corporeal form. Her 101st birthday would be... Continue reading

I had a dream this morning. I was trapped in a cave...or a tunnel...I'm not sure. At some point, I realized I was in a dream and decided to push on the surface above me to release myself from this confinement. Gradually the hard ceiling started to stress and show... Continue reading

It was a day for getting stuff done...which included a visit to the dentist. Fortunately, no novocaine was required. It was also a day for keeping the wood stove going. This evening, we'll call it a night early. I'm working hard on getting more sleep in these darker days. Sleep...it's... Continue reading

It's a gray, wet morning. Throughout the night there was a steady, but gentle rain. The piled up leaves are settling under the weight of the wetness, which was the intention behind getting all that work done yesterday. I'll be off to VisArts shortly. I'm not sure what I'll be... Continue reading

Mother nature was accommodating and had the rain hold off until I finished my yard work. This was another four hour session wrangling leaves (the driveway alone was covered with a two inch layer the whole length). It's interesting to think about other leaves I've dealt with in homes of... Continue reading

We are back home (I picked up Avery before I got to the house). It was a good trip. Perhaps it didn't go exactly as planned but even in the hiccups it provided good and useful experiences. There was a lot of visiting involved with good connection, which is so... Continue reading

It’s going to be a busy day, so here’s just a quickie post for this November 10 (November 10? Seriously? Already??). I enjoyed my sunrise view this morning and am now sipping hotel tea. There’s some fruit and yogurt in the fridge that I got last night at Wholefoods when... Continue reading

Well, it was a long full day. Travel up to Alexandria, Metro over to DC to meet a friend for lunch (with a pit stop at the Whitehouse to see demonstration activity and take a few pictures). After lunch we checked out the Renwick which I’ve been meaning to visit... Continue reading

I'll be getting some things together later, for a little road trip up north this weekend. There will be gallery visits (both for pleasure and for work), monument photographing (if the rain isn't too intense), friend and family visiting, and concert going. I haven't been out of town except for... Continue reading

Early morning light, seen through two different instant cameras...and a strange vision in my bedroom... Not much to say today. Lots of dreams lately...very vivid (in fact the details from last night's dream seemed like they were from real life...very confusing). I won't elaborate. So...onward I go. 307@59 Continue reading

While yesterday was a sunny, crisp autumn day, today was a gray, cool one. It rained during the night and into the morning, with heavy overcast after that. 4:30 p.m. was already so dark! No long shadows or golden light this morning. Instead there was muted tones in response to... Continue reading

I wasn't going to start my day with blogging. Then I saw that light coming in the windows, as it only does a small portion of the year, and one thing led to another. Truth be told, I have to get outside and mow my lawns (including the layer of... Continue reading

Oh November, with your clear, windy air snatching leaves off trees to blanket the ground below. Your long shadows and ever darkening days, pushing me to go within. You remind me of the year I first moved into my own apartment, that funky little upstairs one bedroom in a suburb... Continue reading

It was a weirdly busy, but mundane day. The Halloween decorations are now stored for another year and my few little Thanksgiving decorations (because yes, I do have those...and I refuse to go immediately from Halloween to Christmas!) are out. I brought in wood and kindling (which included sawing some... Continue reading

I went out last night and took pictures of the decorations and jack-o-lanterns in the dark. Only a few children came by for candy, but that's the norm for this neighborhood. At least I was able to give a little bit away. The rest of the bag is coming with... Continue reading

Finally...I can say "Happy Halloween" and "Blessed Samhain" for real! I've been on the go since very early this morning, having attended six a.m. weapons practice. It was a wonderful way to start the day, which has been absolutely spectacular with moderate temps and clear, blue skies. Avery had a... Continue reading

10 years of Halloween...a picture a year from the holiday for the past ten. Time trips my head out. Current events don't help with my mental stability, so I have to be cautious of where I "wander"...existential angst seems to be my continual partner these day. It's not a good... Continue reading

It's almost Halloween. I've been so caught up in other things, though (houseguest), that I'm not feeling it. After early tomorrow morning, I'll be alone again and hope to be able to get in the mood. Not only that, but I feel the need to come back down into myself.... Continue reading

I don't have much to say. It's been busy, connecting with my family visitor these last few days. I'll have company for one more day before returning to my regularly scheduled life. I don't always do well with balance. So, here's a mediocre effort at a photo for today...with me... Continue reading

One of my brothers is visiting me this weekend. He hails from Florida and therefore is enjoying the autumnal weather. We took a drive out past Charlottesville today to Edible Landscaping, which was having their persimmon festival this Saturday. I'd never been out there in cool weather, so it was... Continue reading
