I am lucky to have known him!

My dad's best friend:

Richard Salay, a beautiful man who joyfully influenced many.

Richard, Dickie-Boy, Sales, Dick, Pops, Salay, Dad, Grandpa... enraptured with love, has shed his skeleton and moved on. Recently achieving 70 years, he amassed an enormous yet eclectic portfolio of smiles. He simply made life more interesting. He will be revered.

Long live Dickie-Boy.

Ofertório - A Vélo Vogue Film

So if other bloggers get to write about their kids and spouses, I think it's fair game for me to write about my break-ups, and how a bike ride helped me deal with the latest.

This was filmed entirely with my Panasonic DMC-LX2 on the day that I broke up with my ex-boyfriend. I rode my bike to the Labyrinth at Land's End to make an offering and decided to film the whole thing.

The music is Ofertório by Brazilian artist Milton Nascimento. The title means "Offertory." I love the music, but don't understand the lyrics. When I first heard it, I knew it matched the visuals of this film.

A Photo Show

I'm going to participate in this group amateur photo show. I was assigned the Upper Haight. Because I've had to deal with so many extraneous things, and then with Bike to Work Month upon us, I've found myself kinda too busy for photo taking, but I managed to snap some nice shots, and I'm sure there will be a wealth of other good ones in the mix!
