The Wheel


The wheel is turning and it won’t slow down. Can’t back up and you can’t stand still I learned a lot today. I learned it before breakfast. I watched The President’s discussion about the horrific number of pandemic dead in our country. 500,000. That’s 120,000 more than the city of New Orleans. I listened toContinue reading “The Wheel”

Into The Morning Light


Once upon a time. I lived in New Mexico. We lived there after Hurricane Katrina hammered New Orleans. We needed a little peace. Solitude. Quitetude. I don’t know how long we planned to stay. I thought maybe a year or two. It turned out to be almost five years. We heard the pounding of theContinue reading “Into The Morning Light”

Where The Beauty Is


The original title was going to be “The Boys of Summer,” after reading about a number of great baseball players of my youth passing. But, Eddie Van Halen died. He was 65, a year younger than I am now. He died after a very long battle with cancer. He family was with him. He wasContinue reading “Where The Beauty Is”

Where The Beauty Is


This is another event that the pandemic killed for this year. The Albuquerque Balloon Festa was supposed to fly for its 49th year. You might think that being out on a cold and windy balloon field would be safe enough, but people come from all over the world. They need places to stay, places toContinue reading “Where The Beauty Is”

In The Morning


In the morning. When you rise. Do you think of me? From an old Crosby, Stills and Nash song. Without Young. The band that will never play together. That’s a long story. Maybe I’ll tell it some day. At least, as I know it. Let’s just say that there are too many old resentments andContinue reading “In The Morning”

Dawn


Like Bart Simpson, I didn’t even know that there is a 5 am. “When did they start that,” Bart asked.  Obviously, I know. I’m rarely up at that time. I like to work into the night. My job has never been anything like 9 to 5. For me, it’s always been work late, sleep late.Continue reading “Dawn”

It’s My Swamp


Yes. It’s my swamp. First, the picture. Then, the real comment. We were walking early in the morning when I happened upon this little scene. We don’t always walk in our neighborhood. I always carry some kind of camera. So, I used it. I enhanced the picture in post production. And, that’s really it. ForContinue reading “It’s My Swamp”

Daylight Again


“Daylight again. Following me to bed. I think about a hundred years ago. How my fathers bled. I think I see a valley. Covered with bones in blue. All the brave soldiers that cannot get older. Been asking after you. Hear the past a calling. From Armageddon’s side. When everyone’s talking and no one is listening.Continue reading “Daylight Again”
