Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

I wish I had been one of the twelve. I wish I could have stood in awe, overwhelmed by the majesty of the vision . . . and never wanting the moment to end. But that time is past, and … Continue reading
Right off the bat (bat, get it? never mind), I was not impressed with the movie. I mean, great production value and all, but a cavernous (get it? Cavernous, bat-cave . . . Sigh, never mind) disappointment to this viewer. … Continue reading
This year has been a very good year for hummingbirds both at work and at the D’Alise residence. At work I maintain four window feeders. They are the most bother since deer empty them every night. At home I have … Continue reading
Consider for a moment just how far behind I am in my postings; there are flowers, spiders, butterflies, bugs, a ton of hummingbird photos, birds in general, sunsets, and other odd stuff all sitting on my hard-drive screaming at me … Continue reading
Vitriol – Cruel and bitter criticism We are in an election year . . . I therefore expect both Republican and Democratic parties to cast aside any pretense of civility, and to sling sulfuric acid at each other. I … Continue reading
The year 1990 saw us take the first of what would turn out to be many trips to Hawaii, specifically, the Big Island. We rented one of the condos at the Casa de Emdeko. Now, one can say it became … Continue reading
A few weeks ago I entered a contest at The Dark Globe. To my great joy and surprise, I got the Gold: I thank the Swallows for their incredible, and unscripted, performance, and I thank the judges for what was … Continue reading
Given the tremendous success of the last post (damn-near ten people read it – more so than my usual posts), I’ve come to a realization. People are nosy about other people. They want to know what makes them tick. They … Continue reading
One of the popular things in the early days of FaceBook (a couple of years ago) were lists of one’s personal preferences. Ostensibly to enable people to get to know you, I always saw them as ways for people to … Continue reading
There were many resources I used to identify the various plants and flowers, but the ones I found most useful were (in no particular order): http://www.wildflowersofcolorado.com/index.html http://www.easterncoloradowildflowers.com/index.htm http://www.swcoloradowildflowers.com/index.htm#top Still, a few flowers eluded identification. In part this is due to … Continue reading
On the way up to the Mount Evans Summit we stopped at the Dos Chappell Nature Center. Adjacent to it is the Mt. Goliath Natural Area. The following are all from that area. Now, it is true they are subtle … Continue reading
The second of what will probably turn out to be four total posts on the Mount Evans trip. I’ve encountered some indifference, if not outright disdain, for my rock photographs . . . well, cellulose lovers rejoice! Also lovers of … Continue reading
The Dark Globe is running a “Tell a Story Contest”. People can submit from 3 to 8 photos to, you guessed it, tell a story. There are three themes one can choose from; Love, Growth, or Survival. Below is my … Continue reading
A short post while I work on prepping the Mount Evans Fauna entry. Middle of July, I take a break from work to go and photograph the tree swallows chicks being fed by their tireless parents (another upcoming post). I … Continue reading
