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.

On the 14th of April, I stood in the cold wind in the middle of a yard for about twenty minutes shooting photos and videos of an Osprey intent on doing pretty much little beyond perching on a tree limb … Continue reading
I figure I would post a few photos along with a quick update. What better photos than them prodigious crapping machines known as Canada Geese? On nearly-still water with the dawn breaking behind them, they made for interesting subjects.

I’ve mentioned before — or should have — the Old Kona Airport State Recreation Area is the haunt for our daily walks. Depending on the day, we walk anywhere from 4.3 miles to 6.4 miles before hitting the gym. On this particular … Continue reading
I had high hopes, once here, of snagging lots of bird photos but Hawai’ian birds turned out to be surprisingly difficult to capture. I mean photograph, but I imagine capturing them would also be difficult. Almost every bird I see is … Continue reading
We arrived in Kona at 8:15pm on June 16th. By the time we got the luggage, got the car, drove to the rented condo, lugged all our stuff up, all we could do was crash . . . it had … Continue reading
