Dad 1941-1943

in front of the old shop (w/Stan Phillips) [was right next door to the new shop]

New Guinea — "We were supposed to shave every day in the army, but hey, an officer in another company had a beard, and I figured so could I."

sousaphone — "There were a lot of trumpet players, but I think only one or two bass horn players. I figured I had a better chance of not going to the front line if I could stay in the band."

it's the little things

a walk, the sun and blue sky after a cloudy week of snow and ice

october opals in november

in a deep space with galaxies of bright light
dotted in the dark of time and space
i found an outline of you
and looked deep into your eyes
i wondered
if you're sitting there
wondering too
oh not about me and you
though wonders never cease
do you think about peace
so you think deep beyond the sense of sight

Buddha Say

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.

Chaos is inherent in all compounded things. Strive on with diligence.

In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.

The foot feels the foot when it feels the ground.

Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it.

autumn beach

kite and surfers
sand seagulls wind and waves
clouds portend winter

in the shade watching autumn fall away

on the dock of the bay watching ships and clouds roll away
