198/365 Walking The Trail


Went for a walk on the Granby Trail with my sister Sue and her husband John. I don't feel so hot today, and my back is quite sore. (Too much sitting around at work.) I did a run this morning, and walked with them this afternoon. Get the toxins of my job out of me.

196/365 Practical Dreamer's Handbook


My dream would be to retire and live for one year just detoxing the emotional funk of my job out of my soul. Then I could decide if I have anything left to give to society in the way of a job or volunteer work. Right now, I'd have to say, I have nothing to give. Absolutely nothing. I'm that exhausted emotionally. Maybe I could write one  of these books where I tell you what to do with your life.

195/365 New Hair


It's like a strawberry dirty blonde now. My hair looks a lot healthier. I'm trying to get used to the red. I like it for a fall/winter color. My hair looks healthier, which is great. I was starting to look like a bleached blond broom. LOL!

Takamine 365 Overflow




These three pictures are part of my 365 overflow set.

This is my Takamine 12 string guitar. I made the photo black and white, then added the color back to the guitar for effect.

192/365 Snotty Look

Actually, the sun was in my eyes, and I just made a face, because I felt like it. Doesn't it look gorgeous outside? It wasn't like that two hours ago.

This is my 365 project picture of the day, strange as it is.

190/365 Dr. Wayne Dyer


This is a book about meditation by Dr. Wayne Dyer. He encloses a CD to listen to while meditating. It's to help "get in the gap". The only problem I have, (besides the racing thoughts), is the excruciating pain I get in while trying to sit with my legs crossed. My lower back and hips aren't flexible enough to sit comfortably for even 5 minutes. 

This is my 365 project picture of the day.

187/365 Career Book






















I figured this book would give me an insight to some jobs out there that were quite different than the normal, boring job. It's not that non-conformist at all. It's more of an entrepreneurial bent, which is probably what Sandra Gurvis means by Non-Conformist.

185/365 Sticking Out Tongue


Coming home from getting my back adjusted at the chiropractor's office. Let's see, my hip was out, and my left side of my back. My neck was out of alignment too. LOL!

182/365 Henri Cartier Bresson


I bought this book quite a few years ago, and though it isn't "The Decisive Moment" collector's books, the content is pretty similar. There are writings from "The Decisive Moment" and Europeans", as are essays about his travels. He was one of my favorite photographers besides Elliott Erwitt and James Nachtwey.

181/365 New York Map Book


There are a series of these city map books. They are pocket size, and have laminated maps in them that open up. There is also a small book section, and a pen with a compass to guide you through the city. Very inventive little book.

Other Photos




More pictures.I woke up at 2:30 am again. Second morning in a row I've done this, and have no idea why it's happening. It was only 5 hours of sleep, so I know that's not enough to get me through work and a workout. Maybe the weather changing is causing this bizarre sleep pattern. Some spirit is waking me up and trying to get me to play golf in the back yard. Well, you read this far; it could be true. These are part of my 365 overflow set.

"Drink the Kool Aid."

This drink is supposed to give energy. Haven't tried it yet. I'll try it on my day off early in the morning in case I have some adverse effect, like growing hair out of my tongue, or shape shifting.

We all had a blast at Tisane's!








Theodore the Chihuahua


Rescuers found this poor guy living in a tent, where the previous owners dumped him. Thankfully, he was rescued and lives a great life now.

172/365 Digestive Wellness Book


It's been updated. This is probably the most importrant book, besides the Deepak Chopra book (Perfect Digestion), on anything to do with the colon and colon problems, and how to heal inside to live a normal, healthy life.
