Road Trip Euphoria

“We were together. I forget the rest.”  Walt Whitman

Most of us have those special moments of euphoria when we come upon certain outdoor scenes, especially our special places, that create a euphoric feeling, a deepening of breathing, a smile to the face, the eyes sparkle, it is indescribable. My son, Tony, was moving through Central Oregon, late in the day when the horizon and sky combined to wash over him with euphoria.

Let There Be Light……..

“Always seeing something, never seeing nothing, being the photographer”  Walter De Mulder

Blinds-Photography-SwittersB

For perspective, re this simple image, these blinds have been covering a set of French doors for 36 years, covered in cardboard, plywood and layers of hoarding stuff stacked up to totally obstruct the blinds and the doors behind. I uncovered it yesterday and was struck by the light, finally, filtering through into the room. Let there be light!

Life: Confusion

“Much unhappiness has come into the world because of bewilderment and things left unsaid.”  Dostoyevsky

“There I was, cold, isolated and desperate for something I knew I couldn’t have. A solution. A remedy. Anything….I hated it. Alone and confused was the last place I wanted to be.   Somehow I knew I deserved this.”  Brian Krans

“One of the greatest tragedies in life is to lose your own sense of self and accept the version of you that is expected by everyone else.”  K.L. Toth

Tour de France, 2014

My yearly, obligatory “I love the Tour de France.” I rarely ride a bike. I certainly never raced with a bike. But, as I say each year, the scenery of the various historical structures adjacent to the race course are spectacular. Too, after many years of watching the race, the commentators are a known factor and I enjoy them as well. Today, Stage 14, is from Grenoble to Risoul. My favorite stages of the tour are the mountain climbs in the Alps and Pyrenees. The final climb today is 19 miles up. The congregations of insane spectators the insanely tired riders must navigate is always a rewarding viewing of human kind at a sporting event….crazy! This years race has been brutal with many of the top contenders wiped out via crashes, but still it holds my attention as new stars emerge. It takes a while to understand the individual/team strategies, otherwise it just looks like a large group of riders.
