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

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)
