Wow, it seems as if its been forever since I last posted anything here. I have a cyclical work pattern. I’ll go from several free hours a week to almost none and then back again. It gets so bad at times (like lately) that finding 90 seconds a day to make sure I haven’t overspent […]Read more "Summer, Fall doldrums…. Exceptional American Marketing"
Time is a funny thing. It runs through our lives, or perhaps we run through it. Its a real force, but it doesn’t really have a physical avatar. Or does it… Coins, I have found to like footprints of time.Read more "Laundry or Introspection?"
It was unusual for me to get the number of local shots I did here. Mostly due to the fact that I had roughly 90 minutes to kill while I was unloaded.

The games are no longer broadcast on KARN and the Travelers have a new home across […]Read more "Seeing foalhood vanish…"
Few things in life just ‘snap’ together like they were crafted. This lovely coincidence this morning in Oklahoma City after an intense downpour left me feeling in awe.

On my way through Colorado, and the weather should give us a smooth trip, even while parts of the country get hit with the white stuff. The photo is old, but from the Limon, Colorado area of a pretty rainbow I managed to snap. What made it interesting to me that day was the fact […]Read more "Rainbow trails"
There are times in my travels when I come across things that have such a haunting effect on me that I cannot help but to stop and wonder. I had a pickup in Coffeyville, Kansas this morning and I saw a number of homes that were rotting away, sagging roofs and such, a few burned […]Read more "A ghost of religion"
