DA old timers
a lone redwood stands
defiant, out on the point
a crow cries foul
mark walks beach each dawn
manatee glisten in his
EDIT: (See below) I can't post any more now Mark! But only because your post below is too damned funny and deserves to just hang there for awhile…. At least until SDR wakes up.
Now not that I am one to pass on unsubstantiated "here-say", but I vaguely recall hearing splendid news that SDR and Heath were collaborating on a line of mens fashion ( think lumberjack chic with marabou trim). I personally remembered thinking how seamless the fella's passed on to the sartorial masses a very pretty, yet practical look. Very forward thinking...less is more. The cut of the trousers could make a Queen Anne leg, or even simple toothpick legs look
like Falling Water. I look forward to their success.
ps a portion of the profits will be donated to the "Sealcoat Over Taliesin West" fund. Shaving optional.
Dang. A guy gets no rest, anymore . . .

Backing up: last night's celestial extravaganza rapidly faded to magenta/charcoal streaks. Festive, in a restrained sort of way -- just like our new men's line ! Available soon at better remaindered outlets everywhere ! (Psst -- where's Heath ? Get me out of here !)
Carry on . . .
Oh just admit it Mark, you went to an eclipse party last night and this is a "morning after" shot!
As we already know, Mark is hands-down the brightest and bravest show-off in DesignAddict history (and maybe even world history). And even cosmetic surgery cannot dampen his snappy addiction.
I actually DID go to the yearly block party on my hill last evening… which of course turned into an eclipse-viewing party, as the moon rose. There was a neighbor guy whose name tag said "The Fun Doctor" on it. Don't ask why.
He said he was going to lead an "eclipse walk" later on... I didn't go. I was having a nice time, and besides, I couldn't get out of my chair.
Was it pretty ? The photo on the front page of the paper today showed a small reddish disc. A long lens would have done wonders for the image. Instead, we got the back of a viewer's head, and a citizen quote: "It's amazing -- it's a miracle."
No, dear; it's science -- cosmology. Far more interesting a subject than miracles, in my view !
But -- Mark is our very own miracle. That I like. (Still no italics. Anybody ?)
Well, with eclipses, it is pretty much the rarity that makes them beautiful.
It looked like a rather dim moon, or a fully rendered planet just hanging out there in space. It was kind of a dull pinkish orangey color for most of the time after the moon first came up.
If you take into account that a full eclipse on a super moon hadn't happened since 1982 or something, then yes it was beautiful, because it is a sight that had not occurred in 33 years.
But it was REAL SLOW… and the most drama actually occurred when the first crescent of direct sunlight once again hit the moon.
Thank you so much ! The PBS Newshour last night showed a dozen or so images from various viewing locations; quite a variety of moons. My personal opinion: the moon should be "full" all the time.
Tonight you might have had a pink sky overhead ? At least, that's what I saw in the east, from here . . .
No (assuming you are in SF) I am NORTH of you. Up the coast off of 101.
I am about 15 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge... Damn, pink sky? Sounds nice. I should have seen it because I WAS on the roof this evening at about 5 45PM, talking to a roofing guy... because I need a roof fix. But I was too consumed with the details of the issues of the roof while up there, so I missed it. It's funny how blind I can be to stuff, if not paying attention. I admit it.
Spectacular sunset photos! I have a few but nothing that colorful. I took these on Delaware Bay a few years ago. (The view from my current abode is not very dramatic, ever.)
The first was taken in late afternoon. The second was take at sunrise. Third was at sunset but looking east and the water looked beautifully---and weirdly---opaque pink for a little while! Like a sea of rippling pink milk.
