Dragon statue in Ljubljana, Slovenia

Dragon statue in Ljubljana, Slovenia

Because I’ve been told I’m part Slovenian but know nothing about my homeland, any time I encounter a reference to Slovenia, I’m all over it. I recently found this picture of a Dragon statue in Ljubljana, Slovenia. I don’t know where Ljubljana is, nor how to pronounce it. But since I’m XX% Slovenian, I’m damn proud of it. 

Teatime with a fairy

Teatime with a fairy

Actually, it’s “Teatime with Tinkerbell,” but I like the double entendre. In this photo (can’t find the photographer) Helen Stifler is cosplaying Tinkerbell. Her expression is perfect; I love the composition; and while we are mixing up fabled characters, at Tink’s elbow, is that the cat from Alice in Wonderland?

Discovered this beautiful image on ALK3R’s WordPress photo blog. The photo is by Carlos Lazarini, a Sao Paulo photographer with a great eye. Sounds like he’s self-taught and focuses on scenery. This shot just draws me in so strongly. Something about the composition, the light…just really well done. Visit Carlos Lazarini’s Instagram for more.

Oceans ~ Cold Ain’t For Me

Beautiful, young people in tropical, pristine locations with melodic, laid-back music. I felt a deep, rooted vibe from this video. The slow moving images  triggered strong feelings of nostalgia for the carefree days in my 20’s. Oh, to be back to those days again. It almost hurts to think about…A knot settles in my throat.

My wife LaRonda wrote this adorable poem about our cat, “Miss Pepper Pita Pepperidge,” then paired the verses with pictures in this video. It’s really quite charming–I’m not just saying that. It will give you a chuckle.
