Sea Watching

“Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” ~Lao Tzu

Inside the Fort

We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.
~Carl Jung




“There’s a certain slant of light,
On winter afternoons,
That oppresses, like the weight
Of cathedral tunes.

Heavenly hurt it gives us;
We can find no scar,
But internal difference
Where the meanings are.

None may teach it anything,
‘Tis the seal, despair,-
An imperial affliction
Sent us of the air.

When it comes, the landscape listens,
Shadows hold their breath;
When it goes, ‘t is like the distance
On the look of death.”

~Emily Dickinson

1987 Albuquerque Balloon Festival

“1987 saw the first Annual Balloon Glow become a permanent addition to the Balloon Fiesta repertoire. The goose bumps generated at the first Glow still rise those who witnessed their first “all burn” describe the experience. For many years Albuquerque had seen 15 to 20 glowing balloons during their famous Christmas Eve Luminaria Tour, but the sight and sounds of over 300 glowing giants crowded together on the field, amidst tens of thousands of spectators, left an indelible mark on the Balloon Fiesta experience.” ~Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta

Attending the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta in 1987 left me delighted. Meeting early in the morn’ just before dawn, hundreds of hot-air balloons dotted the field, resembling giant luminaries. As soon as the first suns rays pierced through the dark skies, the first of the hot-air balloons began ascending ever so gently to meet them.

Soon, all the hot-air balloons filled the early blue morning skies.

Here is where I cook lately since I cannot afford to use my kitchen. I use twigs and whatever to get the fire going.
