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.

The lightscatter blog had THIS interesting image in a recent post. I would duplicate the image here but I’d rather you go see it there. Anyway, I liked the look of it and I made a half-assed attempt at duplicating … Continue reading
A not-so-quick post . . . Those are leaves just under the water surface (some are poking through the surface). I picked a photo at random from a group of similar shots. I had planned on a quick post, but … Continue reading
Just a quick post . . . And from there . . .

Some readers (one) made mention of traveling back in time and reading my prior Halloween offerings. “Good luck with that!” I thought, “Time travel is kind of messy.” It turns out they meant revisiting my prior Halloween posts. Well, ever … Continue reading
Another Halloween . . . not that we celebrate, but I used to write Halloween short stories. Not always, but I at least offered up a graphic or photo. The last few years, I used the free PanosFx Spooky Halloween … Continue reading
I take a lot of photos with my Samsung Note 8 but despite my best intentions, I’m way behind in sharing them. This post attempts to make up for some of that . . . except you won’t see the … Continue reading
Sometimes life has one sit and wait for stuff to happen. Like, for instance, a few times this week. Well, then, one takes out their Note 8 — if one has a Note 8 — and snaps a few photos. … Continue reading
. . . specifically, this field. That’s an unedited photo from the Nikon P900 of a field in the Crab Orchard Lake Wildlife Refuge. It was an overcast day with intermittent rain (it wasn’t raining when I snapped this). I … Continue reading
postI mentioned in the last post this familiar visage might be Apollo or David . . . . . . but I figure I could play with the image and try to coax other figures from it. So, I … Continue reading
His name is Bones; Bob Bones and this is an old photo of his: That was taken with my then-still-functioning-Samsung Note II and processed with Pixlr-o-Matic, a precursor to Pixlr. I wanted to do a quick post to let readers … Continue reading
One of the advantages of traveling is . . . you don’t follow the news as much. The consequence is that I miss out on a whole lot of indignation and consternation. I mean, sure, I get the peripheral noise … Continue reading
Our exercise routine used to be thus: 1.5 hours at the gym on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Sometimes we’d get in additional walking. The 1.5 hours were split between free weights, aerobics (rowing for me), and weight machines. … Continue reading
