A Different Friday Morning

Posted in Daily Pictures on February 28, 2014 by Verge

Normally, on Friday mornings, I’m at Keg & Barrel, weighing grain and sorting hops.  This morning, however, I’m at my day job, helping out on a few pending projects that have deadlines.  So, here I am, with my coffee and computer, a stack of hard drives and SxS cards, and I’m feeling this stuff this morning.

Admittedly, I’ve been disappointed in Radiohead’s the last few albums.  I wish they had gone down the “Queens of the Stone Age” road rather than the Brian Eno one.  But hey, I guess they never really wanted the rock star destiny.

There have been recent developments in my future.  And they are trending towards rock star.  But, for now, we’ll try to keep our cool.  Enjoy these selections…

That’s that.  Game over.  Going home and taking my toys.  See you on the flip side.

Strike Day

Posted in Reflections on February 5, 2014 by Verge

Yesterday was supposed to be the last day on compound.  And, we got a lot done, to be honest.  But with the snow on Monday, we’re still behind, and so I’ll be spending another day here, until Thursday.  Last night went too late to blog, so tonight, I upload some pics, pack, and hopefully blog.

Just don’t be surprised if you navigate to my page, and find nothing there.

Everybody Wants Their Box of Chocolates

I’ve got a lot of pix to upload from the last few days, but they’ve been long and tiresome.   And so, I’m alone in my hotel room late tonight, and I’m feeling this.

If you don’t know this movie, you should watch it.  I’ve always loved it, because it speaks to me.  It’s not a terrific movie, but to me it means a lot.  It’s almost impossible to say out loud what you truly feel in mixed company, and even more difficult for the people to “hear” you when you speak your true thoughts.   So, often times, we remain silent, until the rare opportunity comes along for us to be able to say what we really want to express.  Even when we have to hide it in codes, keys, and pseudonyms.   Most of the time, we are together, even when we can’t admit it out loud.  It takes courage to speak up for ourselves, and about the people we care about.
