Upgrading

It's time to upgrade.... I got a good decade run with my last desktop, and which is now dying. Time to make some decisions, and I'm opting towards getting another Windows machine, and even biting the bullet and getting Windows 8. Didn't really want to go this route, but it won't kill me and should tide me over for a few years....

Might be time


After putting off getting another Windows computer, my machine seems to want to force me down that road.  I'm not thrilled by the idea, in fact I'm dreading it.

I've been slowly moving over to Macs, so this may complete the transition.  Or, I'll throw in a bit of new hardware and buy a copy of Windows7.

RIP Windows.

Solo Flight


With a new week quickly approaching I'm supposed to resume my duties at work as if I didn't nearly die, and all is well, life goes on, we've all got one foot in the grave anyway, blah, blah, blah, etc.

That just simply isn't the case. I'd say it's time to start dreaming again.... dreaming big, and letting those dreams take flight.

Simplicity

I started this blog way back when (March 17, 2007) with the goal of focusing on photography and simplicity. It seems that I got off track from the very start. Recent events in both my life, and with changes in social media have brought me full circle, and once again my focus is on simplicity... for everything in life.

Run Rabbit


Run Rabbit

Flickr has made it extremely difficult for me to maintain my blog and photography. My goal is to keep things simple, not jump through a bunch of hoops.  We will see if I bother with either form this point forward.

With flickr dumping its support for Blogger.... I'm having to rethink my blog, my photography, and a million other things. It might just be time to let it all go, and fade off into the sunset.

A month ago I collapsed on the beach....
I was at death's door, and still can't explain why I'm still here, other than it just wasn't my time.... folks, make the most out of your time here, do for others, make the world better... the choice is yours alone
