Fri. 11.08.19 – More and more, due to software algorithms, it is hard to get a phone’s camera to achieve a satisfying blur or nightscape. All the recent camera phones want to make dark scenes light and blurred scenes sharp.
Thus, when I am able to get the Samsung in a quick snapshot to achieve a nice blur, as in the airplane skidmarks turned into continuous black lines in the photo above at landing yesterday, it makes me happy.

Thurs. 11.07.19 – With the autumn SoCal Fire Season in full swing, I am off to non-asthma indicing fresh air.
Photo taken on Sun. 11.03.19, aka yesterday, at Chiriaco Summit where the fabulous shrine to La Virgen stands next to the post office and diner.
Usually the Virgen’s shrine is bedecked in flowers, flags, and offerings of candles and other devotional items. But yesterday, the shrine and it’s general locale was the most cleaned up / cleared out I have ever seen it in years of stopping by to visit. It was practically minimalist, as far as a Virgin Mary shrine goes.
If you are driving between LA / Palm Springs and Arizona on the Interstate 10, make sure you stop at the Chiriaco Summit, not just to pee or get a Diary Queen iced something, but also to say hello to one of the most delightful shrines in California.
Sun. 11.03.19 – Driving back from Arizona along Rice Road / CA Hwy 62 westbound through the desert just a bit after sunset and the first quarter moon was high up in the southern sky. It was beautiful.

Sun. 11.18.18 – Yes, I am back in London to write. I find that I write best here, for a number of reasons both known and rather mysterious to me. When I am home in California, I can muster 2000-4000 words per month, hardly words enough to finish a short story in reasonable time – let alone a book. When I am in London, I can reach that word count in two days or less.
The last two years of US politics have heavily weighed me down and when I get to London, as long as I stay off of the news and social media sites, I am able to feel slightly bouyant again. At least here, I can float in my imagination – unfettered from the fecal matter of US politics – long enough to create and write.
While I am not participating in the NaBloPoMo nor NaNoWriMo, I am doing my best to restart my blogging practice in a more regular fashion – albeit in clumps – as well as finish writing a few stories and a book.
Here I am for a month. Let’s see how much writing and editing I can get done. Wish me luck.
