A Nice Summer Day

Today, I sampled MAPA lakes, processed the samples, then drove to town with my laptop. I did a little war-driving on the way in, snagged an open wifi in the riverside parking lot behind Main Street, and wrote a detailed draft review of the BeachBouy waterproof gadget case for the PalmAddict blog.

This morning (past midnight), I got my Lake Stewardship blog caught up, with automatic postings for the next six to seven days. Then, I finally hacked the gameroom PC so I can access it across my network (never was able to, been years but not a priority). I also updated some of the gameroom security software, cleared out some disk space, attached a MadDog external drive, and did a security scan.

It is amazing what you can get done if you don't sleep!

The Party Before - Animation by Adam Rosette

Here is my talented nephew/animator Adam's film thesis from NYC School of Visual Arts. So far, he has worked on Assy McGee and now Nite Fite (from the folks who brought you Fairy Godparents, I believe).

I Wish . . . from another lifetime ago

i wish
i could see you now
in person
across the room
within arms reach
in my arms

i wish
i could hold you now
forgetting all
the world and life
shrinking down to a moment
just you & i together

i wish
i could fall asleep
wrapped up with you
and wake
to find you still there
warm in my arms

i wish
that i could hold you so close
that you could see the world through my eyes

i wish
we were walking
hand in hand
sunrise at the ocean
cool afternoon in the woods
dark night under infinite stars

i wish
you were here now
and forever

Life on the Bubble

We float on the skin of the bubble of life as it slowly revolves beneath us.
A moment of time, pleasure or strife, is quickly to past behind us.
Each fleeting moment we call the present, our path laid out before us;
We can turn, revolve, take any heading, except the past left forever behind us.
