Longest Light


Longest Light

The end of a day

near Summer Solstice

burning sky moved northward

nearly passing western mountains


It is relative

like Truth

like Position

on an eternal edge

of One Reason

expressed upon continuums

unfolding constant


as looking

as dreaming…

Wondering on a star

here most near

yet far






Vortex 2: Dreaming Of Tornadoes

Vortex 2: Here They Go Again

It seemed to be turning into 2009; tornadoes in the South and East, the Plains–boring!

Until now.

May 10 may be a big day for the tornado seekers of Vortex 2, with an outbreak possible right up their alley.

Then comes the choice dilemma; chose a storm to chase that the whole armada can catch in time. That will be the question.

They picked just one whole of last year, not that the storms that do not produce tornadoes are not important–they are a major part of the study to determine why one storm is capable of a twister and another not quite.  However.  I do not believe the chase team wakes up thinking; I wish we would finally get a non tornado producing storm, all these tornadoes are getting dull.

The sweat on the heads of the decider, if lucky, will add to the humidity just enough to tip the scales, but not too much to interfere with the RFD.

The other luck to wish for would be that no people or structures are destroyed no matter Vortex 2 or not.

So this year, when I got a chance to document Vortex The Sequel, photos of Vortex 2, so I’m going to post some of my favorites here.

Worth The Waiting For; Images Of Nature Wild

Earth, Fire, Sky and Water



A gray sky of common origin

sun slipping behind a mountain

mere angles change perception

common becoming incredible

in passages of simple moments

laws of astrophysics bending light

our world overlooking a dream

beyond fences we seek afar

we are in vision’s sight

the dreamer

Another Day In The 70’s; January 6 2010 Arizona

The view last evening

I’ve been working outside and sweating on occasion.  Helping a restorative justice project move locations today in sunny, warm weather.  Much of the rest of the US is quite cold, and for that I send you who are warm wishes this new year.


There is some frost outside at the moment.  That counts for something.

A Movie Being Made Of Your Life ; No Really!



The Artist You Are

No Matter Who You Are


You Are The Star

I should correct the title, by including that you will be the one writing your movie, and not some ghost or other writer. You will be narrating the plots storyline, doing the set production, including designing landscaping, rooms, buildings and even planets and qualities of physics, while creating all the characters, and keeping it all a secret from you as you do!

Now that is genius! Maybe you did not know that you were actually a creative genius? I do not know you, but I know you are.  The issue is access to you phenomenal abilities.

No Really.

Quiet on the set

Next Caveat:

This revelation of mine about your movie is not a “Cold Reading”; the fact that most of us, thinking we are all unique and one of a kind, actually have many of the same interest and goals of sorts.

For instance. Someone says you planned to write a book one day of your life’s interesting stuff.  Well, something like 80% of folks have that fantasy, but if a “psychic” told them of it, they might be quite sure of the “proof” of this psychics unique ability to decipher inner consciousness metaphysically.

Not necessarily.

Anyway. This is not that.  Not playing to your ego or perhaps ignorance in some manner.  Well now, that is not quite precisely true, since I assume you do not know what I am referring to yet.  At least some of you may still not know what this movie and genius stuff is leading up to.

No More Mystery

I’m speaking of your simple nights dreaming since you were very young.  You’ve been designing whole movie productions while reproducing elements of known environments and people into fantasy worlds.  You’ve been writing this stuff on the nights fly—-seemingly instantaneously designing dialogue, storylines, fears and who knows what else; ALL IN AN INSTANT!

You have no artistic ability? Baloney!  Double baloney!!  !!!


Now the question is; Do you or I tap our own deep creative well?

This will determine to what degree our talents are for public, or only private consumption.

What I Don’t Need For Christmas


Christmas No Wish List

I do not need an I-phone or anything like it.

Never had nor required a new car, so forget about it.

I have no need for computer games.  No thanks.

Not wanting any wine, beer or other liquor. Sorry.

Please, no sport tickets or any pop performers. Thanks.

I will not be Tweeting, so not wanting any of those.

Not text messaging as well, and I’m glad for that.

But if anyone would like to give me WordPress gifts, I’d take them like a greedy blank.

But I will give you The Moon this Christmas Eve

I did give myself a new little canon camera which I took this moon shot from tonight.

We’re getting ready right now to see old Christmas Shows we see every year.

It looks like I can tweet or type right here on WordPress!  Who knew?

Have some Happy Holidays you all.


Christmas Christians Say No To Canadians?

No Canadians For You This Christmas!!!

I received this in an e-mail.  It does put forward the staggering contradictions and cherry picking that goes on in the blind “conservative” Bible following opportunism rampant these days.
I trust they know not what they do.

Subject: Can I own a Canadian?

Why Can’t I Own a Canadian?
October 2002

Dr. Laura Schlessinger is a radio personality who dispenses advice to people who call in to her radio show. Recently, she said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22 and cannot be condoned under any circumstance. The following is an open letter to Dr. Laura penned by a east coast resident, which was posted on the Internet. It’s funny, as well as informative:

Dear Dr. Laura:
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other specific laws and how to follow them:

When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord – Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

-I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness – Lev.15:19- 24. The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can’t I own Canadians?

I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination – Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don’t agree. Can you settle this?

Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?

Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? – Lev.24:10-16. Couldn’t we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God’s word is eternal and unchanging.
Your devoted fan,

No Canadians for you this Christmas!

Probably all sold out.
