I’m as busy as a bee in a bluebonnet field, working to win Camp NaNoWriMo. I can see the finish line dancing on the horizon.
All of my spare writing minutes have been devoted to my Camp NaNo project, so the blog has suffered. However, I thought I would share this delicate beauty from my last trip to the Dallas Arboretum. I think it’s an … Continue reading
I needed a little alone time today, so I loaded up my camera gear, grabbed a notebook and schlepped into the city. My destination? The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, of course. I spent this beautiful spring Sunday meandering through … Continue reading
After a hair-raising week capped off by an unwelcome visit from old man winter, I think a little color is in order. Enjoy.
Another gorgeous weekend is so close I can almost reach out and touch it.
Flowers aren’t the only thing flourishing in the warm spring air. So are the creepy crawlies. Here are a few I came across this weekend.
One of my favorite annual events at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is Dallas Blooms. For one month each spring, the gardens are transformed into a variable sea of color. Tulips and daffodils, narcissus and cherry blossoms burst forth … Continue reading
Springtime in Texas can mean only one thing: Bluebonnets! Enjoy.
Okay, maybe not. But I did run into a spotted leopard, a funny looking bear, and a cheeky koi while on vacation recently.
I have been sitting here all morning avoiding my WIP by sifting through some old photos I shot last spring. I can’t wait for everything to bloom again. Here are few of the more interesting ones. Enjoy. The bee is … Continue reading
“As life goes on it becomes tiring to keep up the character you invented for yourself, and so you relapse into individuality and become more like yourself everyday.” – Agatha Christie I learned this week… …that it appears I … Continue reading
I learned this week: …that Historical Geology is not going to be a cake walk. From the course material: “The study of sedimentary rocks can involve many scientific disciplines. Considerable knowledge of mathematics, biology, and physics is required to fully … Continue reading
I went to the Dallas Arboretum this weekend to see the Chihuly exhibit. Beyond the customary landscaping pansies and evergreens, I didn’t expect to see much in the way of colorful blooms. It is, after all, December. Not much grows … Continue reading
On December 31, 2012, the Chihuly exhibit at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden will close. Last Sunday, I took advantage of an unusually warm day, and schlepped into the city to take in the magic one last time. I’ve … Continue reading
I am. I made it through another semester. With all A’s. Even in that damn Geology class. Bring on the tequila. Not really. I don’t drink all that much, but it sounds good. Right?
“Brevity is the soul of wit.” – William Shakespeare (Hamlet) I learned this week… …that finding a link between Truman’s Cold War policies and the civil rights movement is easy. Writing a paper arguing the connection is not. I can’t … Continue reading
“A spy, like a writer, lives outside the mainstream population. He steals his experience through bribes and reconstructs it.” – John le Carre I’m on a bit of an early Cold War era spy kick right now. Two reason for … Continue reading
I’ve been busy. This semester is shaping up to be brutal. I blame the science. Today, I spent a great deal of time trying to differentiate between unconformity, disconformity, angular unconformity, and nonconformity as they pertain to the calculation of … Continue reading
This weekend a cold front blew through my neck of the woods. The first of the season, putting a welcomed end to a long stretch of 100+ degree days. On Friday, we set a record when the mercury topped 105. … Continue reading
