No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.



All is procession; the universe is a procession with measured and beautiful motion.

-Walt Whitman


Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.

-Thich Nhat Hanh

Seasons: A White Wedding

When Winter covers every nook and cranny in white it looks like Mother Nature herself has dressed to become a bride; what a sight to behold! These pictures were taken by a friend and bring to mind a grandiose White wedding thrown for a Snow queen or maybe Snow White? Who says fairy tales are for little girls?

Abstract Expressionism: Bubble Gum Alley

Abstract Expressionism: Bubble Gum Alley

Bubble gum alley is a local tourist attraction in San Luis Obispo. A 70 foot long alley covered with bubble gums left by passers-by. Gross? Maybe… The tradition of sticking bubble gums in this alley started soon after WWII, by high school students and has continued to this day.

This wall is testimony to the fact that sometimes small, random acts performed unwittingly by a few people can take the form of bigger traditions over time.

A Specious Blossom

Specious Blossom 2 Specious Blossom 3

Who will understand abandonment better than these specious blossoms that thrust out from the hardness of mother earth, only to enjoy life for a day or two? It’s unfortunate that most of the passers-by will pass by, without ever stopping to glance at their fleeting beauty.

We all swoon over the beauty of the roses and the tulips, but here’s to celebrating the Specious!
