i ran as far as i could and ended up on the pacific coast. i can only run for so long, since LIFE has this irritating way of continuing on its linear (circular?) course regardless of my discontent. damn.

A big Texas welcome! Note the rainbow smiling at me through my lens....!
Soooo...... If one foot is in Texas and the other is in Oklahoma... who has jurisdiction?
Lovely puffy white bunny clouds.
However, i almost always get something meaningful from his few short sentences everyday.
They almost always apply in my daily life and his writing style is very poetic, which I love.
SO.... I keep reading them! Every now and then I'll post one on facebook or my blogspot.... And now, Tumblr!
This one reminds me of, "the secret," which basically states that we make manifest in our lives whatever may be our intention. if I intend to be joyful, joy will find me...!

By Tzvi Freeman
Depression, anxiety and pessimism damage the channels of blessing from Above.
The Zohar explains that there is a lower world -- our world -- and there is a higher world. Our world is meant to continuously receive from that higher world, but always according to our personal state of mind.
If we are glowing with joy and vitality, then that world shines upon us in its full glory.
But if it we wallow in depression and anxiety, then we can only receive the metered trickle that squeezes through a constricted channel.
That is why King David said,
“Serve G-d with joy!” Because your joy here draws upon you another joy from above.

This might be my favorite shot. I love the water, and the action here with the gorgeous sunset was a great bonus!

95% of the time, photography lifts my mood if I'm feeling sad or lonely. There is a LOT of time to be sad and lonely when you don't even have cell phone coverage for about 500 or 700 miles or so! I thought the death valley stretch was desolate, but there was NOTHING on this route, from Yosemite to Grand Junction, CO! I can always count on photography to lift my spirits when flying solo. :)

Embark on the s e a . . . And at last wake up in Naples . . . t.h.e.r.e. beside me
The. Sad. Self.
That I fled from...

I think I missed the exit.
He will be stranger to him

I must say . . . it still looks as tragic now as it did then... but I was never one to care. Unless I happened to care.
