People who have near death experiences all talk about a peaceful, euphoric , bright light enveloping them. From the moment we are conceived, we are moving towards that light. This is my heels diggin' in, I don't wanna' go, reluctant journey, into the light. Stephen

Food Doesn't Come From Grocery Stores.

I think it's a shame, that most people believe in the grocery store fairy.

I don't.

I'm not dead......

However, this magnificent, organic, free range, mule deer buck,,,is.

 It's complicated, but I choose to err on the side of natural sustenance.

God's Candle.

John Fogerty sang my favorite song. ".....put a candle in the window......."  A signpost of affirmation. Like lighthouses.

"It's going to be ok." 


 "Yes.!" ........"ok"

"For sure, I mean FOR SURE? You're really the dude who dreamt up Claude Monet?  Right?".....  "Yes."

Pretty cool, huh?  Little moments like this Monet onslaught, just fuel my life. It's not that I'm so cool, but more the fact that I lived it, and recorded it.

How lucky am I? 

humble, digital scrivener.

Non-Midnight Oasis

Sometimes, here, in the evening, it just totally rocks.

Low Tide.

      My lake is constant level. To an extent. When a whole bunch of the water flowing to LA and Phoenix is pumped from here, the straw has to stay in the coke. But there are at least 1 or 2 low tides every year. Usually for pump station maintenance. Like today.

In just those last few precious moments of cinnamon light, lying on a pad, in the mud, playing photographer, I had a visitor.

Seriously, I'm talking about a really cool moment.

OK, OK, I know it's not in focus. But you get the idea. (Dear Santa, D90 please.)

Anyway, about that low tide......It was just an excuse to go down to the water.

Did you see the arched, "prepare to dive" coot?  (clicpic)

Recently, Around Here

Feel free to use any one of these pics in any way you want. They are my gift to you. I hope you put them in a calendar and make a million bucks. Me and my camera are just a conduit, to move moments in time forward, to now. I hope you like them.

Yeah, it's been a cold winter. Traditionally, we've been the official "hottest city in America."  Not this year. Crossman peak has been snowcapped twice already.  Dang that Al Gore.

But mostly, it's been good. As usual.

The Needles. Oration not needed.

Botannical Phalanx. Tough neighborhood. The day job can be prickly as well.

I should have stayed in school. Then I could have slept in. But then of course I would have missed this on my way down to the work scow. This sunrise was glorious. I don't use "glorious" very often.

This golden shot is from our regional boating safety center. Agua cop shop.

Ok, last one. Goodnight and I hope these gifts end up on a few desktops
