Photo Friday - Portrait

At Home in the House of the Lord.

At Stern Grove, the hawks still cry out.
The trees harvest rain from the misty fog off the ocean.
The dragonflies arrive seasonally, to dance on the air currents.
The Earth's heartbeat echoes through the drummers on the land.

Needing no instruction,
Children climb piles of rocks.
Making offerings of grass and pebbles to a spirit alive.
We see, and remember that we too know this game.

Thank you to the children.
Reminders from once we came.
Guides to where we strive to return.
Blessings on Mother Earth, and all her creatures seen and felt.

Album art from Led Zeppelin's "Houses of the Holy."

*Dedicated to PDL for teaching me how to get the Led out.*

The Sun is animal kryptonite.

Unable . . .
To . . .
Move . . .

Memorial: fallen body, faltering mind.

Presenting: the gift of a blank canvas.
Nothing to read.

Memorial to a fallen police officer.
Killed in the line of duty?
Not clear.
We'll go, too.
How and when?
Not clear.

President. A definition.

* President (also known as A$$hole,Poison, Capitalism, Presidents and A$$holes (P&A), Kings and A$$holes, The Great Dalmuti, Janitor, Warlords and Scumbags, Scum, or Revolution) is a card game for 3 or more in which players race to get rid of all their cards. The game is popular with people of all ages, from children to adults. It is often played as a raucous and irreverent drinking game.

nb: these photos were taken with a slightly more advanced camera than the 15 dollar camera. My trusty pal, 15dollarcam, is currently resting and recharging its batteries...

This house is a home, the pathway of stone.

What is only driftwood and rocks to some,
could be the start of something beautiful.

Do Not Adjust Your Monitor.

Dig it - your garage could have one, too.

Cycling at Warp Speed 7.

Approaching the speed of light on a bicycle,
does light bend?
These photos would suggest yes.
See for yourself!

Take one of these, and . . .

Some cooling influence for you weekend ahead,
and your head during the weekend.
May it be peaceful.


En Fuego!

Hot today!
So hot, even the traffic lights
are strictly red and yellow!

And not hot as in temperature,
but as in blood that boils
under the influence of
Saturn and Mars!

Eastward rolling.


Where the heart is.
