Water Of Life

Dear Friend, Go Easy

Life, lovely while it lasts, is soon over
Life as we know it, precious and beautiful, ends
The body is put back in the same ground it came from
The spirit returns to God, who first breathed it.

It's all smoke, nothing but smoke.

But regarding anything beyond this, dear friend, go easy. There's no end to the publishing of books, and constant study wears you out so you're no good for anything else. The last and final word is this:

Fear God.
Do what he tells you.

- from Ecclesiastes 12, The Message

Living Room

Happy 4th Of July. Do yourself a favor: get off your couch and go somewhere. I'd recommend some pub somewhere to watch the Beautiful Game.

The photo was taken yesterday, somewhere in the Mojave desert.

California Is Weird

The only point in buying a house like this is to live in it for as short a time as possible before selling it to make a crapload of money because that's what people do in this state. This is a pretty sad way to live if you ask me, but then again, I don't have any house at all so what does that mean? I'll tell you what it means: it means that when I'm old and gray, I'll be living in a cardboard box. But at least I won't have lived in a concrete prison in the middle of the desert. Life is full of contradictions.

Sunday Afternoon

And while we're on the subject of light, here's a fun one from last sunday afternoon. Think hot and sunny, the smell of cut grass, and feet in the fountain.

Office Window

I have the very great privilege of working from home a few days every week. Although this almost never means shorter hours, it does provide some benefits. Such as the light outside my window at around 7pm on a June evening. Yes, I'm still working, but I've got windows on all 4 sides of my little studio office and the view is hard to beat...

Stopping By A Tree On A Rainy Night

I don't think this is what Robert Frost was talking about. For one thing, I was at the corner of Baldwin and Grandview, not a snowy woods. There were plenty of houses nearby. And added to all that: I had no horse.

But it was a nice walk anyway. And also I admit I have been thinking about stop signs. I think it's because I so rarely stop for anything. Sometimes it helps to be forced.
