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.

Eight years ago, November 30th, my back yard in Monument, Colorado . . . Yes, some of you have seen these photos before . . . but not with these treatments. Click on the photos to see a larger version … Continue reading
I am taking April off from Disperser Tracks, from reading blogs, from Facebook, from Twitter, and from the Internet in general. I plan to return (virtually) live on May 1st. Meanwhile, I scheduled a few posts (like this one) to go … Continue reading
Some, probably not many, might have noticed my absence from the blogosphere and the Internet in general. My sister visited for a week, and there was much travel, eating, Firefly watching, and refrigerator shopping (my current fridge is beyond repair … Continue reading
Eight years and a week ago we were up the side of Pikes Peak without a paddle (we hardly ever travel with one). That’s right, we were traveling the Pikes Peak Highway, heading up to the Devil’s Playground area. What … Continue reading

If you are a regular reader to my blog, you read the Chronicles of October 19, 2012 (Parts I, II, and II). Well, the very next day we decided to go on a longer drive. Specifically, to the top of … Continue reading
The thing to keep in mind about his next set of photos is they span a period of just nine (9) minutes. Also, except where noted, I am presenting them exactly as shot. OK, with that out of the way … Continue reading
Today I received an e-mail letting me know of the finished project condensing a number of sources into an official record of the Waldo Canyon 2012 Fire. They only used a few of my pictures and videos, but I was … Continue reading
I tend to look up a lot. Perhaps it’s the hope of finding an escape from this rock, a portal that briefly opens up and offers us the change to leave all the crap, and travel to a better world … Continue reading
As I sit here listening to wind-driven rain pelt my windows, I consider the drastic change from two weeks ago. Ferociously quick, yet seemingly interminable, the Waldo Canyon Fire started on Saturday, June 23, and likely by tomorrow, Saturday, July … Continue reading
Edited to Add: There is a final post that recaps this fire: https://disperser.wordpress.com/2012/07/07/waldo-canyon-fire-colorado-a-recap/ The pictures in this post are a taste of what is in the gallery. I normally process my pictures because the settings on my camera are all … Continue reading
Edited to Add: There is a final post that recaps this fire: https://disperser.wordpress.com/2012/07/07/waldo-canyon-fire-colorado-a-recap/ I am behind in my other photographs, but felt I needed to post these. These are pictures from the Waldo Canyon Wildfire near Colorado Springs. These were all … Continue reading
In 2006 The Gazette of Colorado Springs held an essay and photo contest for Pikes Peak Centennial celebration (a brief history of Pikes Peak HERE). New to the area, I had, as I do now, a profound fascination with Pikes … Continue reading
Before we get to the snow, a quick update on the flowering succulent. Nearly all the flowers are open, with only a few still wrapped up on themselves. Luck is with us . . . the original flowers are holding … Continue reading
