Watching The City Grow Dark

Today’s small stones observation came as I sat in this conference room for a late afternoon meeting yesterday.   My picture is a shot of a different street during the daylight. I’m facing east as the sun is setting.  The brown brickwork is warm in the late afternoon sun, but as the minutes pass, it becomes brighter…

Accomplishing My Goals

Last week, I shared some of my ideas for my 2012 goals (listed in a separate tab above).  The list is lengthy and more than one person has asked me how I will get all that done this year. I won’t.  I make up the list of everything that I could possibly want to accomplish.  It’s…

Come To Me & Leave Happier

I find from my own personal experience, that it is possible to spread happiness to others through a smile, a kind word, lighthearted chit-chat, and random acts…

Considering What To Do Next

My favorite boy toy creates and sells fine art photography.  He went to a top art school, having apprenticed with a well-known oil painter while in high school.  He doesn’t paint consistently since his photography is very consuming, but from time to time he picks up the paint brushes and uses them.  Here he is about ten…
