random…

…so, here’s the rest of what i’ve got photographywise for this sunday. i’m people watching again and here are some shots from starbucks and the omelette house. and, the odd two out of course is me…me and my bottlecap and my cup of coffee this morning.

clouds…

…i’m fascinated by them…always have been. i’ve always been able to watch them for hours, as they move around the sky…shifting and morphing into other shapes…merging and disconnecting with others…changing color…and, swelling with raindrops.

pre-dawn…

…not night…

…but, not quite day yet…

…not cool…

…but, not quite hot yet…

…not loud…

…but, certainly not quiet…

…not busy…

…but, not sparsely populated…

…it’s predawn…

…the moment, the point…

…where night and day…

…split apart and separate…

last friday…

…it was an interesting day. i was already feeling emotional and was not prepared for the added difficulty of forgetting to bring my order for my upper arm ultrasound.

the lady at the desk looked for a copy in her computer system, because my doctor failed to send it electronically. the lady told me to call my doctor’s office and have them send it. i called my doctors office and got a prerecorded message that told me that their office would be closed until august 14, because they were moving the office to a different location.

in that moment, i felt helpless and all alone. i knew that i needed the ultrasound done and thought that i would have to use the little gas that i had to drive back to the apartment to pick-up the stupid paper that i had forgotten to bring with me.

suddenly, my phone started to ring a strange ring. i looked and it was w***y. i answered the phone, with an obviously teary voice. she asked me what was wrong and i told her. i asked her if she would take a photo of the order and email it to me.

w***y saved the day for me. the photo of the order worked and i was able to get my ultrasound that day. i felt very grateful for the help of my friend and for the universe that interceded on my behalf!! w***y never calls me!!

anyway, this photostrip is a compilation of the nature around the imaging center, the people waiting inside of it, and the struggle between a drunk woman and a police officer. i believe that it was the officer that had the worse day, because that woman behaved horribly, spitting on him and saying vile things to him.

beck has two turn tables and a microphone…

…i have two spectacular sunrises and a coffee mug…

this is what buggs and i see on most mornings…some kind of spectacular sunrise…all with different colors, shapes, and patterns.

the two good things about the desert are the sunrises and the sunsets…

sunday at the lake…

…the girls, buggs, and i went to the lake today…lake mead, home of the hoover dam. it actually wasn’t too hot today, only 93°. that makes me want to gag when, “i hear myself say that!!” god…i hate the desert…it messes with your mind and your heart.

i feel like i’m paying my karmatic dues for all of my sins…one day when i emerge from this place…my soul will be blameless and shameless…and, my heart will no longer be grieving and broken. or, at least that’s what i keep telling myself.

today, baptism, purification, relaxation. girls swam. buggs and i took photos, people watched, and hung out in the car. i’m still not feeling that great and am waiting to hear the results of friday’s ultrasound. didn’t want to tempt fate and be in the middle of nowhere.
