I found am ear ring on my stairs today.  It reminded me of the moon on better days.

Frisbee

I am very bad at playing frisbee.

 

 

Fucked Up

It’s not about self-improvement, it’s about acceptance.

I am imperfect.

I make big mistakes.

I am judgemental and cruel.

I do the best I can and still fuck up.

Happy Marmaduke

Discretion is the better part of valour.

I wanted to write some very destructive

things today, but posting pictures of Marmy is a better idea.

Acceptance and Understanding

Any fool can know.  The point is to understand.

In any real relationship there comes a point where the past raises its ugly head, and that’s where things get complicated.  The problem is that if the ugly past is not accepted and understood, then the future is going nowhere except into a slow-motion train wreck.

What is needed is real acceptance and understanding of the simultaneous past / present / futures.  For without that there is no point in continuing any relationship.

What is acceptance, and what is understanding?  There is a big difference between reluctant acceptance ~ which is what most people descend to ~ and true honest understanding.

To reach the nirvana of true and honest understanding, there must first of all be true honesty.  And, in this life true honesty is as rare and fleeting as a double rainbow.

I have never known real honesty in a relationship.  Perhaps excepting now.

Weird Wyoming

Wyoming; like no place on Earth.

For this well-travelled Englishman, Southern Wyoming has the weirdest landscape I have ever seen.  Not only that, one can drive for a hundred miles in total isolation, and everything looks the same for every single mile.  I love California, I liked Utah, I’m not yet certain about Wyoming.

Pacific Surf

The Pacific Ocean is nothing like the cold North Sea.

There was not the spirituality and feeling of other-worldliness I had expected and hoped for.  But, if you look closely, you can see sunspots.

Long USA Road Trip

I’m beginning to recover from the 3,500 road trip I had in the USA recently.  There were some strange places on the route.  Like Beaver in Utah.

Downtown Las Vegas.

And Big Bear Lake.

The girl riding shotgun did get very buzzed in Big Bear, but that’s more down to the altitude than anything else.

I would not have missed this trip for the world.
