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

Tie Dyed Bighorns

I've been playing with some photo manipulation and it's a neat way to share some more of a subject you have already put out there.  Just a few pics.

Mini VayCay

I took a little boat ride this evening.

Just needed a little peace......
 I guess I'm lookin' for a beacon.

A signpost of reassurance.
That we're really ok.

Life is an onion.

Jessica Watson is a 16 year old Aussie lass about to finish a solo, non-stop, circumnavigation of the earth in a 34 foot sailboat.  An amazing feat. I've been following her blog for awhile and it just blows me away. GO CHECK IT OUT!

BTW, if you go to "The Voyage" page and zoom in, the little pink location markers are blog posts. A cool way to surf her blog.

Nekkid Emporers/ SB 1070

This is what I'm talking about!  As Joe Friday would have said, "Just the facts Ma'am."  Her accent makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. I practically love this woman.

Food Chain/Bluegill

Yeah, I eat bluegill. A delicate, dance of the palate across the bones of sacrifice.

A gentle poaching with just a few spices. Clean and scale, then be gentle.

With every morsel,,,,,remember....

Remember the beauty of singular moments.

And be thankful that you aren't his dinner.

Distended Belly/Pregnancy?

If you are pregnant, you will probably pee alot  and you need to keep up on your replacement fluids.

Whether gloating about your sperm count,,,,,,,,, or gestating, either makes you thirsty.

Do fish get thirsty?

Last Nights Ram.

I saw two big rams last night. One far away, the other close. 

Some perspective:

That was after he FINALLY turned towards me.

I'm having a focus issue with my camera. Hence the "I want a new camera" mantra.  What I'm seeing in the viewfinder and what uploads are about a half bubble out of plumb the last few days.  But still, a desert monarch up close is always cool.

I Love My Mother/Everybody Does

My Mom's favorite color is purple. Happy almost Mother's day Mom.

Bad Shoes? Yes, But, But, But, WOW!

Having played some organ in my time, this blows me away.  Look past the shoes and the uniform, and watch those feet.  WOW!     At the 1:00 minute mark those twinkle toes really start poppin'.  And then at the 1:30 mark......."Look ma, no hands."   Cameron Carpenter.

Deep Breath/Breathe,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Again

Sometimes we forget it's Saturday and need a swift kick in the back of the pants to remind us that a state of imbroglio is not necessarily permanent.  Sometimes we need a natural anti-depresssant.  I'm lucky enough to know who to see for that prescription.  Well,,,,,,,,,,,,,not so much a who,,,,but rather a what/where.

A subliminal yet conscious unclenching of the mandible.  A disconnect from  the oil slicks of life.

He's not worried about offshore drilling, unless it was in his cove.  So maybe sometimes we get too focused on singular issues and forget there is a great big ol' world out there, all we have to do is look up.

Look up? At what? That big rock?

Well that group of desert bighorn sheep up there on that big rock  above the beaver cove wouldn't hurt your eyes.

Remember Steve, breathe,   in...........out..... and don't forget to look up.
