This place is incredible. Awesome blend of flavor and selection. I wish I was a food critic so I would know all the things to say about how dynamic a dining experience Ludivine provides.

Google Hotpot

Google Hotpot
I was out looking at new restaurants and reviews, trying to find new places for Sunday Brunch. The new Google HotPot popped up. It looks like it will be interesting. Maybe a bit hard to navigate and limited in it's current offerings but in time should be full of goodness.

I had the opportunity to head to Dallas for the weekend. There we ate well and played well.
The King Sauna was great. Chambers in which healing heat coats the body in sweat. Very special place and highly recommended.
Dinner at the Hibiscus was outstanding. Very good food. Great place.
The Bishop Arts District and the Pearl Cup and We are 1976 made for great wandering.
Howl at the Angelika was super too. The theater was very nice. The movie was really very good. James Franco was powerful in his portrayal of Ginsberg. It made me wish I was a poet again.

The Annotated Crazy Fingers

Crazy Fingers
For some reason the lyrics are strumming through my head. Gone are the days we stopped to decide, where we should go, we just ride.

It is really odd. Just time. It takes a lot of energy to produce something. Thought and time and just creating. Trying to figure out a better way to blog. I would like to do something here everyday and yet I do not. Something to work toward.

I know now what people mean when they apologize for not posting on their blogs in a regular fashion. Life gets so very busy it is difficult to find the time and energy for making a post. Things are just crazy busy nearly every day and evening and it seems the discourse is easy to let slip away. Feeling now school is starting to become more back to normal and will allow some respites of time.
You know sometimes they say that life gets in the way of living sometimes. No easy answers there. Bit by bit, step by step.
Life is good that is for sure. Enjoy the moment.

Catch Up

Life has been busy. South Dakota was very nice. Great visit. I did hit a deer one evening so my truck is in Rapid City being fixed. Albert lent me his 96 Dodge. It is a great ride with nearly 300,000 miles on it. Many thanks to Albert and his family for the kindness.
The studio is going great. Staying busy in the heat. Everyone is making some really cool stuff. Drop by on Friday evening for the open house and watch us work.
The house is good. Mara did a lot of painting and it is really looking good. Richard put in a new hot water heater for us today too.
School starts up again soon.

Coffee Musings

I am always amazed when I look up at night and see the moon is full. It is like I paid no attention to the wax and wane and already time moved a month forward and I did not.
Unwillingness or inability to take action to grow along spiritual lines. Daily maintanance is not growth or expansion. Tremendous disconnect between life and nature. I think that is one reason the oil spill hurts so much. The connection and bond to the gulf is so strong for so many people it is a part of the soul that is being ripped open and soiled. It is not a natural event a cleansing of earth but unknown and uncontrollable and so very painful to the psyche.

In Cordell we had a place called the Dead End. Huge gully that would fill up with water from two hills. Great place to go for a swim when the rains came down. Apparently it is not a good idea to swim in flood waters as per the Edmond PD. "Edmond PD now warning residents NOT to put their kids in floodwaters for a photo ops."

Morning Zen

Wondering about stepping into the river. Have thought of that as a physical aspect. Stepping in and we go where it takes us. Our physical is where it is and life is what life is and doing and being. So stepping into the river and getting into the flow becomes an aspect of the spirit. In the flow so the body and mind will follow or do as they need to do in daily living and allow the spirit to soar.

I saw the Spero Project on the back of a vehicle when I stopped for coffee at Slingers this morning. Then reading my blog newsfeeds this morning the Spero Project is hosting the Free Coffee Monday at Evoke one of these days. Good works.

Hurry up and wait. Feel so ready for the end of the week and yet I know it will be here all together too soon and then I will not have everything done that needs to be done. Getting there tho.

Morning Zen

Renew. Take a moment throughout the day to renew the body and mind. Relax for a moment. Step outside and look toward the sun and let the warmth engulf your body. Let the sun reflect through your mind and cleanse the soul. Breathe for a moment and push out the stale. Be cleansed. Anew.
I am digging that. To be at one.

Morning Zen

Getting back into the flow. Sometimes it is not so bad to step out of the stream onto the bank for a little while and watch. Sometimes for me I do not even realize when I am there on the bank. Jumping back in with both feets.

What a wonderful week. I hope everyone is well and this finds you in good spirits. We do have an open house tonight at the studio. Demos from 6 to 10. Food and drinks and coffee by Scott.

Today's Movie Quote. The random choosing of correct answers for Character and Movie. Come by the studio or call to have your prize sent.

"As a Presbyterian, my father believed that man by nature was a damn mess. And that only by picking up God's rhythms, were we able to regain power and beauty. To him, all good things, trout as well as eternal salvation come by Grace. And Grace comes by art. And art does not come easy."

Lake washington

In the way out south east there is what I believe is Mt. Reinier. Lovely waters. Beautiful city, Seattle is. I think Seattle is a city of rebirth and renewal. Aplace of profound strenght. Thereis a saddness here as well. Like a recognizition of something lost to humanity, a sense of the connection with the universe dimmed by the consciensous of man.

Coffee Musings

Hot glass at Pratt. Learning a different way to work. Many ways to get to the same place. Remindedof Abe saying "all roads are good". Interesting dynamic of movement and touch and grace.
Dinner last night in Ballard. Paseo was the name of the place spicy grilled pork sandwich. Delish.
Nice little morning bakery in madison park for morning breakfasts too.
