Horses in the field
With a view of the ocean
Hana-Maui Ranch

Blue skies and contrails
Tuesday morning in April 
Good morning Valley!

Puppies on my bed
My furry little babies
So much energy!

Living the good life!
Keepin’ it clean and sober
One day at a time.

The dogs are barking.
Is there somebody out there?
What walks in the dark?

Pastrami sandwich
On the beach in Malibu
Picnic by the sea

Saturday full moon
The owl in the pine tree calls
California!

Who? Who? calls the owl
Over and over it cries
Who is it seeking?

A warm night in March
Sushi dinner comfort food
Full moon on Sunday

Start the day over
Want to crawl under my desk
Curl up with the dogs

Two sleeping puppies
Oh my sweet little babies
After breakfast nap

Let sleeping dogs lie.
What do puppies dream about?
Please don’t wake them up!

Lahaina Sunset
Party on the Patio
Maui, Hawaii

Stars in the night sky
Shine on crazy diamonds
Sing to the darkness

Puppy in the pen
Where is the “Little Bandit”?
Sleeping on the bed

Sunshine on my face
One more day in paradise
City of Angels

Backyard Birdwatching!
It’s just a beautiful day!

“PROCRASTINATION”

“PROCRASTINATION”
by Fernando Pessoa
FernandoPessoa2

“The day after tomorrow, yes, only the day after tomorrow …
Tomorrow I’ll start thinking about the day after tomorrow,
Maybe I could do it then; but not today …
No, nothing today; today I can’t.
The confused persistence of my objective subjectivity,
The sleep of my real life, intercalated,
Anticipated, infinite weariness—
I’m worlds too weary to catch a trolley—
That kind of soul …
Only the day after tomorrow …
Today I want to prepare,
I want to prepare myself for tomorrow, when I’ll think about the next day …
That’d be decisive.
I’ve already got the plans sketched out, but no, today I’m not making any
plans …
Tomorrow’s the day for plans.
Tomorrow I’ll sit down at my desk to conquer the world;
But I’ll only conquer the world the day after tomorrow …
I feel like crying,
I suddenly feel like crying a lot, inside …
That’s all you’re getting today, it’s a secret, I’m not talking.
Only the day after tomorrow …
When I was a kid the Sunday circus diverted me every week.
Today all that diverts me is the Sunday circus from all the weeks of my
childhood …
The day after tomorrow I’ll be someone else,
My life will triumph,
All my real qualities—intelligent, well-read, practical—
Will be gathered together in a public notice …
But the public notice will go up tomorrow …
Today I want to sleep, I’ll make a fair copy tomorrow …
For today, what show will repeat my childhood to me?
Even if I buy tickets tomorrow,
The show would still really be the day after tomorrow …
Not before …
The day after tomorrow I’ll have the public pose I will have practiced
tomorrow.
The day after tomorrow I’ll finally be what I could never be today.
Only the day after tomorrow …
I’m sleepy as a stray dog’s chill.
I’m really sleepy.
Tomorrow I’ll tell you everything, or the day after tomorrow …
Yes, maybe only the day after tomorrow …
By and by …
Yes, the old by and by …”
Pessoa_1928_Foto_BI

Fernando António Nogueira Pessoa
June 13, 1888 – November 30, 1935

William Shakespeare RIP: poet, playwright & actor
A great writer and the world’s pre-eminent dramatist
England’s national poet aka the “Bard of Avon”
Died April 23, 1616

“Some are born great, some achieve greatness,
and some have greatness thrust upon them.”
~William Shakespeare ‘Twelfth Night’

10989180_10206328550037602_3625508762839847806_n

The playwright was born and raised in Stratford-upon-Avon, the Warwickshire market town, and returned there when he retired.

  • Born in 1564, and the earliest record of his writing dates from 1592
  • Wrote around 38 full plays (including Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Hamlet, King Lear, Othello and Macbeth), 154 sonnets and other works.
  • Words including “assassination”, “addiction”, “generous” and “bedroom” had their first recorded uses in his plays
  • Introduced phrases like “elbow room”, “heart of gold” and “tower of strength” to the English language
  • Acted as well as wrote, and owned a share in the original Globe theatre
  • Died on 23 April 1616, aged 52

Jess, Adam & Daniel – The Reduced Shakespeare Company Original Members

When we were in college in Santa Cruz we worked for the University of California, Santa Cruz, Performing Arts Department and the Living History Centre (the producers of the Renaissance Pleasure Faire & Dickens’ Christmas Fair) in Black Point, Novato, California.

Shakespeare Santa Cruz 1984

“And, most dear actors, eat no onions or garlic, for we are to utter sweet breath; and I do not doubt but to hear them say, it is a sweet comedy.”
~ A Midsummer Night’s Dream: Act 4, Sc 2

In 1989, we traveled to Stratford-upon-Avon and London, England as a consultant to Homer “Murph” Swander’s “Theatre in England” (associated with UC Santa Barbara).

We saw 13 plays in 3 weeks at the Royal Shakespeare Company’s theaters in Stratford, and at The Pit, the National and Barbican in London. We saw Mark Rylance perform the title role of “Hamlet” in pajamas in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and the role of Romeo in “Romeo & Juliet” in The Swan Theatre. We also saw “Two Gentlemen of Verona”, “Cymbeline”, “A Midsummer’s Night Dream” and many other non-Shakespearean classical performances. We even saw Dustin Hoffman perform Shylock in “The Merchant of Venice” in London (his first time doing Shakespeare on stage).

NOTE: While in Stratford-upon-Avon, we had the pleasure to meet and drink with many of the RSC actors after the performances at the Falcon Hotel Bar across the street from the theatre. In addition, some of the RSC actors spoke, performed and answered questions at scheduled daytime meetings of our travel group. We also toured Broughton Castle.

F*ck you Wednesday.
That is all I have to say.
Waiting for Thursday.

Today is Thursday.
Another day in the life.
Make the most of it.

I can hear the owl.
Night is questioning again.
Who do you call to?

Raw fish, sticky rice.
Japanese food happiness!
Sushi time again.

Stuffed Tortilla
Filled with meat, beans and cheese
Put it in my mouth!

California sky,
Golden sunset in the west.
Why live anywhere else?

Saturday morning.
Awake, the weekend is now!
Celebrate today.

Green grass and blue skies.
Enjoy your Sunday morning.
NFL Football!

He wonders “what if?”
But the past is behind him.
Life plays dirty tricks.

I can hear the owl.
Who, who, who are you it asks.
That’s a good question.

Oregon Road Trip!
Miles to go before I sleep.
Drive Highway 5 north.

Coffee and Donuts.
Today is Flashback Friday!
Sugar High Me!

Bacon Cheeseburger,
Crispy onion rings and fries,
Feed my face with meat.

Bad beat at poker.
Lady Luck can suck it.
I am out of here.

Saturday morning
Nothing to do but relax.
Maybe take a nap.

Stabbed in the back!
Don’t call yourself my friend.
Drive the knife deeper.

Am I the A**hole?
Ask yourself that question first.
Is the answer “Yes”?

Play the music now!
One more time with real feeling.
I just want to dance.

No time to look back!
Forward into the future.
Everything is new!

The End of the World?
Blood Moon and Lunar Eclipse!
Have a nice weekend.
