A wholelotta (yup) motherfuckers from all over the world were up before the sun yesterday.

WHOA! I'm still processing this absolutely mind blowing experience, honestly. There was just so much to take in! As a result I don't really have much to say about it, believe it or not. The magic of having so many balloons in one place is overwhelming in the

@freakme All the rides were spoken for. This year I was satisfied to see the spectacle from the ground. Maybe next year, if I'm still here.

There's a similar festival near me and I have yet to ride... maybe next year for me too if I'm still here ;')

I was in need of another shot of shinrin-yoku. So yesterday I headed off once again to the Las Conchas trailhead in the Jemez Mountains. This time I arrived earlier and was able to hike a little bit further than I did the first time. Since my visit three weeks ago, things have really popped off! There are so many more wildflowers. This time I...

On Sunday I went up to the Jemez Mountains with a dear friend. I had been hipped to this particular trail by another dear friend (the gentleman who made the previously blogged GOREGOUS obsidian knife). We've been experiencing monsoon season in the southwest. Those winds have brought some great storms, and because of that New Mexico is mad lush right now. I'm not...

@whiteflyermike I can't be sure, but I'm pretty sure it does.

That's good it will keep the area somewhat green in the dry times

My memory is horrible, so it's hard to say something like this, but Ima venture to say it anyway.

I'm the happiest I've ever been.

I know, HUGE, right?

The past few months have been an invaluable growth period, but with growth comes pain. I've made myself the priority and feel like I'm hurting others in the process. I guess...

Excellent photography work there. You have an amazing talent, I hope you keep it up.

You are a testament to the value of self worth. Stay healthy and enjoy life to the fullest, never let anyone sway how you feel about yourself again. Your needs are ALWAYS the most important. That doesn't make you selfish, it makes you a self preserver, and that is a necessity.

Early this morning I was quoting Forest Gump.

I don't believe in God, not in the sense that it's an omnipresent being that you can pray to, but sometimes I'll catch myself. I was raised praying to a christian God, so sometimes, even still, I'll talk to him.

Dear God, make me a bird, so I can fly, far far away...

It's like you took the thoughts out of my head!
In fact, my friends and i were talking about this the other day, and I attended a unitarian church with one of my closest gal pals on Sunday. I find myself cursing the christian god more times than praying, or asking why why why to nothing.

In response to your post on my blog:
Gadget, I hear you, I've bounced around with this thought a lot. That it would be pretty pointless to try when there's hardly a chance that it would be bought. But I still want to try. I miss that creative outlet, and the confidence I get from being in the nude around near strangers. And I want to document how I look now, in this life, and how different I am from where I first began.

P.s.-I miss the pictures you send, you are always my favorite!

Cute kitty. And tush.

I have no doubt you'll get what you want in life. You're too cool not to.

P.S. You should PM me a mailing address for you. I'm really getting into sending mail these days. smile When did we all stop writing letters and sending cards?

I highly recommend you nerd out on this beautifully HD musical beardy affirmation.



Anyone feeling so inclined to gush about his beard, you will be preaching to the choir but I haven't heard a good sermon in a while. Do it up!

That's all I care to issue for now. robot

Looks like the YouTube Police pulled the video. ** gushing. I stopped shaving when I graduated High School in 1971. Had it down to my belly button several times; now trim it when it's in my plate. Proud that it has turned gray ( says that I've got to be doing something right to have lived this long). 😃

Ok. So I'm having a bit of a run of video blogs. I do apologize because I know how much I hate when people do that shit. It's not a legit excuse for a blog. So ya'll will get a real update very very soon. I've been really busy lately. There is just not enough time in the day!

You make a good point, lady. I play things close to the vest (or however that saying goes) on Facebook. I don't divulge much there.
