Minor Rant 1.0

Don’t you sometimes just get tired of it? Tired of staring vacuously at a LCD monitor for eight hours. Then getting cut off in traffic by that arrogant bastard in the bright blue Mercedes. Doesn’t it become just a bit dreary? Listening to the talking heads on any of the news channels. Making up the news as they go along. Leaving out small, important pieces of the truth. Surely you find it slightly unnerving that the best candidates the US can find for its highest office are all just a little off center? And their supporters can only sling crap and meaningless generalities at each other while their country crashes and (eventually) burns? Well, me too. Sometimes paying attention can be a burden. And when it all piles up too high to see over, I know it’s time for a hike in the woods and a visit with the wildflowers. They unselfishly do their jobs. They grow. They bloom. They pollinate. They feed the birds, bees, butterflies and other assorted wild things that are also doing their jobs. No ego-based bickering – just natural selection and self-preservation. The way nature intended.  So here. Walk with me.

Wow! Not only are your photos beautiful, but your new blog theme is almost as beautiful as the photos displayed as well.
Good work; way to go Paul!

Thanks, Don! I'm thing about splitting the photography and music pieces into separate blogs... The images "pop" on the black background -- and now that the CD is done, I'll have more time for photography...
