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.

Colonialist’s Blog is running a 50 Words Flash Fiction Challenge. The writing prompt is “Wounded”. If you want to participate, leave a 50 words (including title) flash fiction piece in the comments of his post. My contribution is reprinted below . … Continue reading
I mentioned in a previous post that I had some hot air balloon photos. The year was MMV, Labor Day weekend. That means the Colorado Springs Balloon Classic is underway . . . or preparing to get underway. By the … Continue reading
Yesterday I had the most views I’ve ever had in one day since I started this blog; 48 visitors and 314 views (that’s more than 6 views per visitor). I’m not sure if it has to do with my Viable … Continue reading
Some might recall this video I shared earlier this week: I added the photos below to the existing SmugMug gallery HERE. If you watched the video, you know the 19th and 20th offered the opportunity of photographing two different isosceles … Continue reading
We moved here (ten years ago now) coming from a land of lakes rivaling Minnesota. Considering Michigan is a peninsula (two, actually), water could be experienced at will. Yes, we knew we were moving to a high desert area (the idiots … Continue reading
Some time ago I mentioned I applied to the Viable Paradise Workshop held every October on Martha’s Vineyard (this year is the 19th workshop). The post where I mentioned all that is HERE. That post also contains a copy (minus the … Continue reading
Dear readers, please rate the following based on your level of certainty of their existence using the following scale: 1) Oh, I KNOW they exist! 2) I don’t know for sure, but I live my life as if they exist. … Continue reading
This paragraph is here because otherwise this poor excuse for an editor continuously loses the setting for opening the photos in a separate window or tab. Aggravating that, and I still don’t see why I can’t have that as a general … Continue reading
Things occasionally cross my path and I think . . . wow! And then I move on. I might share them on facebook, or send them to my family and friends . . . I might even tweet about them … Continue reading
Nearly three years ago I wrote of a walk I took in an area that was a planned development hurt by the housing slump of 2009. These were some of the photos from that shoot . . . The SmugMug Gallery … Continue reading
Still waiting for my replacement hard drives, but I’m hobbling along by doing manual backups and modifying my workflow. Likely, I will keep this workflow as it is more streamlined than what I’ve been doing. It also takes up a … Continue reading
I don’t normally go to these things. However, I had a pretty bad day Saturday. Well, not that bad considering all the ills in the world. OK, OK . . . just mildly inconvenient. One of my drives, the one … Continue reading
So, I came across this Kickstarter Campaign. Here’s what one of the cameras looks like (image copied from their Kickstarter page and for which I do not own any rights): They have a lot of models but were I to … Continue reading
So, there is a photo challenge this week . . . it’s “vivid”. There is a challenge every week, I think, but only a few catch my eye. This was one of them. One day, in the month of March … Continue reading
