Big Banyan, I think.






































I went down a new street for me last evening and came across this amazing tree, It was so huge I couldn't get it all to fit in the lens of the camera. but it pays to go to new places as you can see. Posted by Picasa

Water in hot Oil

I just washed my iron skillet and dried it off by heating it on the stovetop as I always do. I poured a little oil in there the keep it moist for future use as I always do. There were a few little drops of water on the side that hadn't dried yet that dripped down into the hot oil. The little drops burst into little tinier droplets and danced around the oil in every which way then suddenly went "pop!" one by one and with that pop, they were gone.
To me this was surely a form of life. As I watched these little bubbles of water dance around on their oily universe, I wondered if in that tiny little droplet of water there might had been little tiny planets and little tiny people and little tiny scientists trying to figure out how the iron skillet began. If this be the case, I'd like to tell them it began how I have just described, well really it began from the skillet I bought at big lots, or the water from my sink, or the heat from the stove, or the iron mined out of the earth to make the pan, or hydrogen and oxygen, or the electricity that comes to my oven to heat it, or the wires that bring electricity to my house, or the coal burned to make the electricity, or the pipes that bring the water to my house, or the spring that the water in my pipes came from, or the............................................
I can't help but think a scientific unified theory is like the donkey with a carrot dangling from a string in front of it's face. Posted by Picasa

Discipline

Discipline is an important thing in life, maybe the most important. It is the never ending training of ones self to be better. There are allot of things in this world I can't change. But the one thing I do have control over is me.
Choice is what makes us human.

I don't know what kind of tree this is, I was somewhere on Gulfstream Blvd. in E-wood.

Indian Mound 2

More Indian Mound Park

I just can't get enough of Indian Mound Park. The trees there are incredible. I took this pic on Saturday after a nice long bike ride. It was a great day, I rode, thought, then had a good recording session that night, and the next morning. After the band left that I was recording, I was so tired, I felt like I could fall over and sleep where I stood. It was a good tired though, tired from doing things I enjoy. Posted by Picasa

Gulls

After work I rode my bike down to the beach. It was about an hour before sundown. I snapped this photo of a couple being harassed by seagulls, and I think I really captured a great moment of these two. If you zoom in really close on the couple, the expression on the man's face says it all.

My Loved


my loved is beautiful
she is long and slender
refreshing and tender
stunning and together
no matter what the weather
her love is beautiful
my loved is not actually mine
she is a perfect moment in time
like a drop of dew on a leaf
or feeling a kiss still on my cheek
my loved

Some maps are wrong

Sometimes even roads that are on the map will lead you to a dead end. When this happens, just turn around and try again. Remember, it was a lovely ride after all.
Picture taken off of Oxford Road in Englewood Florida, before I reached the dead end. On my map I thought I had found a new way to work. Maybe it does go through, but the road is blocked off. Posted by Picasa
