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.

NOTE: an astute reader noticed a big error on my part. In my rush to get the post out, I misread the identification of the bird . . . it’s not a Cattle Egret but a Black Crowned Night Heron. … Continue reading
*** Caution: If flashing stuff bothers you, don’t scroll to the bottom. *** OK, so, two things . . . one, I have a lot of posts with ducks. Two, I’m old and it could be I’m getting mixed up … Continue reading
Once again I face the looming deadline . . . this post needs to be finished in the next 14 hours. It seems like a long time, but there are snacks and other distractions that will attempt to thwart my … Continue reading
*** Caution: If flashing stuff bothers you, don’t scroll to the bottom. *** The previously linked post with Canada Geese was pretty well received. HERE is another short post on the bird that is the bane of many golf courses. … Continue reading
Today, I LINK one of the strangest ducks I’ve ever seen. Then again, I’ve not seen that many ducks. And now, the photo: I like the colors and the treatment, but it’s uncomfortably close to MAGA hat.
I figure Monday is both when people are most dejected from being back at work and also have the most vigor from having not worked all weekend. In other words, the perfect opportunity to LINK one of my long posts. … Continue reading
OK, so I’ve screwed around with the calibration and think I have an adjustment where things look like they used to. It may yet be the calibration I’ve picked results in me thinking I’m presenting one thing (gorgeous colors expertly … Continue reading
Another Sunday . . . typically, the least viewed of my posts are the Sunday posts. It’s why on Sunday is when I’d post many of my “pondering” pieces. Tirades about this or that thing that few ever read. No … Continue reading

I posted a pond post in the previous Project 313 post but I thought I might really go all out and link THIS lengthy post about the same pond (but probably different denizens). And now, the photo: You don’t see … Continue reading
Another post from years ago that might appeal to some . . . THIS post is about a pond and its denizens. That was a common stop whenever I wanted to practice photographing birds in flight or at rest. And … Continue reading
*** Caution: If flashing stuff bothers you, don’t scroll to the bottom. *** I mentioned before that I do long posts (although there aren’t many recent examples) and THIS post certainly qualifies. As a bonus, the comments include a discussion … Continue reading
Once again, I have to rush through a number of Project 313 posts. As usual of late, HERE is a post from a few years ago that might interest some. I’m cranking these out pretty fast so if I accidentally … Continue reading
One of the first things we did when we got into Colorado Springs in late 2004 was to visit Garden of the Gods. I had never seen that much red rock before. HERE are the photos from the place. And … Continue reading
