A lifetime may not be long enough to attune ourselves fully to the harmony of the universe. But just to become aware that we can resonate with it -- that alone can be like waking up from a dream.

How I spent my New Year's Eve... I got started on Seinfeld and Larry David videos... This one is great, and I love the vintage 1952 VW bug. Pure comedic gold here :).
New episodes every Wednesday at 11:30 pm EST.

Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.

The Laughing Heart

your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
know them.
take them.
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you.

Thank you, +Chad Haney and +Kimberly Elaine :). I saw a little owl in the street behind my apt late last night. He was eating something in the road and flew up when he saw my car.

the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.

The milky way above Pacific Coast Highway 1 in Big Sur, CA. I arrived in complete darkness (except for the starry night) and thought I was at the famous Bixby Bridge, but it turns out this is Rocky Creek Bridge which is the next bridge but equally impressive and has a similar design. The wind was blasting me as I stood on the edge of the cliff waiting for my 30 second exposures as I shot this multilayer (6 photo) panorama. Occasionally cars would...

Malala Yousafzai offered up a reality check for Donald Trump and any other politician attacking the entire Muslim faith.

Now you're pushing the limits, +Mary T. I'd probably have to go with black coffee. Maybe just a little sugar.

Ghizar River and the Phunder Valley, Gilgit-Baltistan. Gorgeous photos and article. Long ago, I rafted and hiked the Ghizar River with a group. Many beautiful memories :).


It is Muharram when I decide to visit Ghizer during my stay in Gilgit; an autumn sadness envelopes the entire valley.

Living From the Inside Out
Introduction
"There's a crack in everything.  That's where the Light gets in."

"The light is the capacity to reconcile your experience, your sorrow, with every day that dawns.  It is that understanding, which is beyond significance or meaning, that allows you to live a life and embrace the disasters and sorrows and joys that are our common lot.  But it's with the recognition there is a crack in everything.  I think all other visions are doomed to irretrievable gloom."

~ Leonard Cohen

"Although the wind
blows terribly here,
the moonlight also leaks
between the roofplanks
of this ruined house."
