You know that show where they say...

"Winter is coming"

Down here in SE Texas we have a different saying:

Summer is coming...

If you've any sense and the capability - RUN!

Along those lines...

At least it isn't Orange like it was much of the last seven days. Best for me and my lungs to hibernate


The Way - 37

The Tao never does anything,

yet through it all things are done.

If powerful men and women

could center themselves in it,

the whole world would be transformed

by itself, in its natural rhythms.

People would be content

with their simple, everyday lives,

in harmony, and free of desire.

When there is no desire,

all things are at peace.


My Friends Feed is Like the Desert

At high noon. Not a lot of activity. A few hardy souls still holding things up. But for the most part? Barren.

Part of it is the time of year. Most everyone is busy with whatever high holidays it is they celebrate. Or in some cases - endure.

I think the Golden Age of Overshare is likely done despite our best efforts and wishes to make it otherwise.

Even my posts are becoming more guarded and somewhat generic. Due in part to responses I’ve received either via pm or comments.

It just ain’t the same. Likely never will be again.

This makes me a bit sad.

View from where I am

#the_view_from_where_i_am Might be the third (maybe) one of these I’ve seen this year.

I like sunrises. Don’t see as many as I used to. My bedroom faces the east even. But given my sleeping habits of late... Still they are pretty easy to see when you’re in the hospital. *heh*. Someone always waking you up every 20 minutes. Thought it looked pretty good through the dirty window. Grime as a photo enhancement.
