"Life begins perpetually. Gathered together
at last under the leadership of man...unified, disciplined, armed with the secret powers of the atom and with knowledge as yet beyond dreaming, Life, forever dying to be born afresh, forever young and eager will presently stand up this earth as upon a footstool, and stretch out its realm amidst the stars."
Hearing young people respond to the death of the poster boy for terrorism
banged me on the head. One half to all of their lives have been lived with the image of Bin Laden running an army of terror from the shadows. The ultimate super villain has been
brought down by the good guys, American heros.
There is growth now in this space where reality fuses into iconic myth. The lurking face of evil is gone and and this generation, this demographic cohort, has a cause to celebrate a brighter future with a good new story.
Cheers to the young, to beginnings and to "knowledge as yet beyond dreaming."
DAY BOOKIN A WORLD WHERE POPPIES RULE
A career in journalism, chasing people and stories and now a thrill in capturing images of the gentle life on the central coast. This is the domain of the California poppy and this is the season.
A season for many blooms.
Growth in what I call the Pinochio cactus
Looking into shadows.
The shape of things.
As Yogi said, "You can observe a lot by watchin'."
See you down the trail.
