A boy and his dog Well, age-wise, I’m no longer a boy, but a heart, I am. Just a photo from this morning’s walk with my buddy, Hobbs. I really do enjoy these early morning walks with him while the sun is coming up. It’s so peaceful, quiet, and I get to see lots of sights in the morning that don’t seem to be available later on. I can almost count on seeing bluebirds sitting on mailboxes and on the…

Yesterday, June 5th was Tony’s high school graduation. Next week is his 18th birthday. ‘C’ is for cookie, that’s good enough for me. ‘C’ is for cookie, that’s good enough for me. ‘C’ is for cookie, that’s good enough for me. Oh! Cookie! Cookie! Cookie! Starts with ‘C’ — Sesame Street – Cookie Monster This song lives on in my head. I had to listen to it every single day for what seemed like eternity, but was probably on the…

I promised my wife that while she was away this weekend that I’d have her car looked at. The brakes have been squeaking. This week was busy with the usual stuff, so I waited to do it until this weekend. The place that we get our cars repaired is Tuffy Auto Center. Tuffy is located pretty conveniently, when you’re driving. Well, I had made up my mind early this week that I would drop the car there on Saturday morning…

Pondering – Olympus 35 LC Ilford HP5 – Rodinal 1:50 Of course this photo has absolutely nothing to do with what I’m talking about, but I like the shot, so I posted it. I took it while on the way to work. I saw this guy staring in the window. I lifted the camera, took the photo, and never broke stride. He didn’t have clue that I snapped a picture. Score one for the quiet rangefinder, though in truth, it’s…

As I lay on my back, staring at the ceiling, gulping air, eagerly awaiting my next breath, feeling my heart beat in my chest, watching the dust motes float through the air, inhaling a few hundred of them, I thought: Geez! This is only 20 minutes into the warm up!!! The floor feels good. Cool. Firm. Not moving. May the nausea continue to stay a bat. Breathe! Breathe! Certainly, I did not feel alone. All across the room, giant lung-fulls…

Well, as you know, I try a number of things. Why not, life is short. So, now I need to find another guitar teacher in due course. I want/need something physical, though. I don’t remember when I first saw Tai Chi, but when I saw it, I thought that it might be for me. It looked peaceful. On Tuesday, I visited The Peaceful Dragon in Charlotte, NC. I had looked at it just before I went to Charleston. While I…
