Discography Updates
by Dave on Sat Jan 05, 2019 12:56 am
Updated the forum software, and have been doing some updates to the discography. Most notably, I've added links to purchase the albums from all the usual places. If you notice anything out of wack, let me know.

Well, we made it. This far at least. A few hours into the new year, a couple of cups of coffee and I'm ready to see what happens. We celebrated the coming year last night with a glass of champagne, but fell asleep long before midnight when we crossed over the time bridge.

I was up early this morning - too early. But awaited the sunrise - the usual stuff. I had a camera in hand and took a few pix to see if the otherwise normal looking twilight would look any better thru the glass. It didn't. It was a normal morning in that regard.

Naturally, I got a lot of emails, text messages, and phone calls as the evening progressed. I'll get to some of them today. But, today is mostly just a day to celebrate being normal and average (as much as is reasonable). I remember sitting with my friend, teacher and guru, Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati - it was years ago, and the times seemed to be in some sort of upheaval. A lot was going on. And she said "I just would love to have an ordinary average day."

So, here we are. There's a lot going on. I try to keep up with it. But, having said that, I'm hoping and praying for a normal ordinary average year ahead. One where we can relax with friends and family, and enjoy ourselves and the world around us. Many have scarified a lot over the years and centuries, so that someone somewhere could just enjoy the days and years we have together. With that in mind - Happy New Year to all.
Another Good Day

December 14, 2018

As usual, I got up before dawn. Another good cup of java, and I waited to see if the morning would be something I had to photograph. It was, although it was quite early. Most of the time, the colors, if they're going to be good, show up about a half hour to forty-five minutes before sunrise. Today it was much easier.

Now, hours later, it looks like the rain in the area will bypass us to the north heading out to sea. I have a couple of meetings this afternoon, but otherwise it's another day completely off. I love it!

I'm posting one of the pix from this morning - Just sharing - Nothing important. I just ran out onto the deck and started snapping away. This is one of the good ones - just the river & skies. Hope you can enjoy...


More later, or tomorrow which ever comes first.
Back On The River

December 8, 2018 - Roseland, FL

I'm back on the river in Roseland (Sebastian), FL for a few weeks break during the holidays. This morning I had the two things I enjoy most - a camera and a cup of decent coffee - In hand. I was going through the notes, messages, emails etc. as I do every morning, looked up from my desk, and grabbed the nearest camera, ran out onto the deck and grabbed a few pix before it all went away.

That was an hour or so ago. There was an update to the computer that left me wandering around while it took about 45 minutes to complete. By the time it was ready to roll, the day had become more normal. So I'm here with another cup of bliss, an updated desktop, and a bunch of little cameras I've collected over the years. All the good equipment is on the tour bus on the other side of the state. But, even the cheap cameras these days take awesome pictures. The phones we generally have these days take better photos than the actual digital cameras we had a couple of decades ago. It's an amazing thing.

I took photography lessons when I was a kid, and learned how to develop film, and make prints. Manny Lebensfeld was my first teacher, and we fooled around in his garage learning about cameras, film and all the associated stuff. That was about 60 years ago. A lot has changed, but I've kept up my obsession with cameras, and photos. Still at it, still learning, still having fun.

We were heading to get last minute things done before going south. I got some really nice pix of the snow and ice in the trees along the road to town. I was caught in the act - shooting the pix - and thought I'd share with you.

It's been a cool few days down here south of the border - cool for them already here. But, still to see a little sun, and walk around without bundling up is a treat.

We're beginning to fill in the calendar year for 2019. Most have been decided already but there's always a few that show up late. I add them to our schedule here as soon as possible, but sometimes we're prohibited from doing so until the venues maker their own announcements. But, you can get a pretty good idea of where we're going, when. It looks like it's going to be a very busy year, with a little time off here and there.

As Usual,
More Merry Everything!
