tonight is one of those nights i'd like to have a few of you around, a bit of wine, cheese & crackers, whatever ... just sit and shoot the breeze. laugh a lot. wish you were closer! i'd put a log in the outdoor kiva fireplace, and we could solve the world's problems while watching the stars rise.

went for a walk down the rail trail, and took some shots. not sure if i'll just post a couple, or make a new gallery. later: they'll be a gallery. the shots are better than i expected. two shots of a strange little 'altar' found by the side of the trail will supply endless hours of speculation as to purpose and intent. gallery'll be on line later this evening or tomorrow. not a lot of creative motivation at the moment.

biz phone rings at the crack of dawn this morning ... and what do i hear on the answering machine? a young lady is late with an assignment for her web class, and wants to *hire* someone to do her homework. *good grief.* another sign of an affluent, dissipated society?
