Noisy Tires

I got out of school early to get to a dentist appointment in Bangor. Somebody asked me today why I drove to Bangor to go to the dentist when there are so many dentists around here, and I gave some flip answer about the dentists around here not being very good. As I think about it, it is a matter of degrees; I like the dentist I go to in Bangor and he is really good, maybe better than most of the dentists in Ellsworth if not all, so I realize how much I appreciate him and his staff.

So anyway, to the point. The studded snow tires I have on the car are very distracting, and I had bought new rims (cheap - I hope I got more than I paid for, but I doubt it) and put the old summer tires on them and just had to change them after supper tonight, so I did. The picture is a composite that is from three different shots!

Time to sleep!

Moon Shots

I understand that the moon has been at it's closest to Earth for a few days now... I haven't explored the details, but I suppose it might have something to do with general alignment, you know, the spring equinox and all. All I actually know for sure is that it has a profound effect upon my spirit, joy for life, and my belief that we all make a difference every day as we work with one another, and how we act, in what manner of attitude creates a positive/negative (take your pick) result. Simply stated, the moon is a beautiful aspect of nature.saying many things to those willing to listen.

Water Down Front

A fast shutter and a fascination for the movement and qualities of water made these shots, all taken down in front of the house at the end of what we all call "Intermittent Stream", a focus for me yesterday.

It seems pretty obvious to me that limited time has caused me to be rather inconsistent in getting posts on to this blog site. The real problem is that I am doing two others with classes and so find myself somewhat less able to keep this up as well as I would like. I will manage a post now and then, but the concentration right now has to be with my students and their efforts at blogging with their photos, so scarcity is the most likely rule of the present.
I do look kinda "cross-eyed" in the above picture, don't I? Oh well, if you can't make fun of yourself, you shouldn't make fun of others, so...
