Born Naked

Today is my birthday...
I randomly received this poem today from a weekly subscription that goes out to anyone who is signed up...

I love it...


I was born naked.

My beloved parents kindly gave me a name.

When I reached twenty, I thought

“A name is a chain, I want to abandon it.”

Whoever I question

No one answers me.

When I hear the wind in the pines

I get an answer.

walking with my friend...

... looking up :)
it's been awhile since I've posted...
wanted to send a greeting out into the ethers...

ethers: the clear sky; the upper regions of air beyond the clouds; ethers: physics, a very rarefied and highly elastic
substance formerly believed to permeate all space, including the interstices between the particles of matter, and to
be the medium whose vibrations constituted light and other electromagnetic radiation... and so on...

there and back again...

Driving from Chicago to Toronto to Chicago. 

Looking at these pictures it's as if the water was 
with me. Leaving Chicago, driving along it's
Lake Michigan. As soon as I'm out of the city 
I'm followed by ominous clouds all the way to 
Toronto, the lake is with me, contained in a cloud. 

10 hours later, reaching Toronto, the clouds let loose, 
and the lake comes pouring down on the city. 

A week later on leaving, I take the most amazing 
wrong turn towards Niagara Falls, and the road 
opens up to Lake Ontario. Early morning Lake Ontario... 
wind, birds, bright sun. Good bye Toronto! 

Drive, drive, drive and 5 hours later I'm crossing 
Lake Huron, onto the island, United States. 

Back on dry land… for now.
