Yes, Omar Khayyam

Ah, My Beloved

by Omar Khayyam

Ah, my Beloved, fill the Cup that clears
To-day of past Regrets and future Fears -
To-morrow? - Why, To-morrow I may be
Myself with Yesterday's Sev'n Thousand Years.

From "The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam"

Night Jaunt In Siam

Roundabouts and looking for something strange to do on a muggy Thursday night..

No good movie... oh well.. let's move on then.

this place never gets old! all kinds of Maneki-nekos on display!

And then the imaginary grapes are consumed...
Me with some fizzy drink..

Ask The Dusk

You don't get days like this everyday -- glorious, grapey, perfect dusk...

Weights and Measures

It was still pretty early in the day when I got up for a walk, but this rural grandmother and a granddaughter had apparently sold all their wares even by 7am. I haven't seen those kinds of weights and measures since chemistry lab.

I call him the niffy old uncle. He always seemed happy to see me and chat with me even though the language barrier seemed insurmountable save through a friendly smile and endless cups of tea.

I Wished For A Day

All taken on roll of expired film on a very old camera on a day when I felt like my heart would burst just by being part of a universe.

Puppies. Nothing could ever make me any happier. 
Little girl dancing by herself in a cafe on a slow day. 

Best seat in the house for high tide.

Sleepyhead Wakes Up

My newly painted toes match the startlingly blue sky and the cool mountain lake below!
