Are they "lion"?

Fascinating news article about a young Ethiopian girl being rescued by lions.
Anyone bought the movie rights yet?


My tattoo

Or, "tat" if you're down with the jive. This is how it appears to other people.Posted by Hello

And how it looks from my angle. Posted by Hello

One interesting coincidence: My tattoo guy, "Nate" (a nice young guy who did an excellent job - no bruising and practically no redness), went skydiving the weekend before I did at the same place I went and had the same instructor I did. Small world.



"Although you are still running ahead, new information now encourages you to change your mind -- and maybe even your direction. What you learn, however, may not arrive through normal communication channels. It's as if you are downloading the information directly from the cosmos, but it's really coming from your own subconscious mind. Pay attention to your dreams, for they carry an important message."

The wierd thing?

This morning I woke up not remembering my dreams, but with a wierd sense of a new understanding of something (I don't know what). A sort of settled feeling like a puzzle piece had shifted into place in the night and my future direction has been shifted a degree or two.



Sad news, but not as sad as I thought...

I nearly swallowed my gum when I read the following headline:
"MacGyver Actor Dies at 77". Now logic would have told me that Richard Dean Anderson is not 77 yet, but by the time that thought occurred to me, I had already clicked the link and found out that it was Dana Elcar, the actor who played MacGyver's boss and friend Peter Thornton, who had passed away.
For those who know my love for MacGyver, you know how worried I was for that milisecond.
Dana, you enriched our lives. Thank you.

Camping in the clouds

We were rained on during last weekend's camping trip to Golden Gate Canyon State Park. It was really fun, though, since I camp with some resourceful people who put up a big canopy and tarps. Posted by Hello
