To Wave
Sunday. So, clear headed this morning - clear headed in the sense there was no sake last night - but also clear headed in the sense I examined this aching head and sinus thing of mine and judged it's about the same as it has been over this last year or so and, I guess, that's just the way it is. I do get out on the sidewalk - I took a walk around Chinatown this morning - but there's still a wobbly quality that makes it, well, not altogether wonderful. I'm sitting here at the computer and my attitude is good enough and the wobbly quality doesn't impinge the way it does when I'm out on the street, but wobbly is wobbly and maybe this is just the way it's always going to be.


Well, you know, you adjust. Being alive is the battle, everything else is chipped paint. So the sinuses and the head are sore; so the world tilts a bit - sometimes more, sometimes less - but it hasn't tipped over yet and there are many things a wobbly guy can do to entertain himself.

By the way, I managed to figure out how to make this new laptop display properly. The error on my part that resulted in my saying the video driver didn't fill the entire screen and still keep the photographs in perspective was a dumb error and for a so called techie to have made this error is embarrassing. Well, it should be embarrassing, but it isn't. To me. Deedle-dee-dee. So I have a laptop I can use with the cameras while I'm driving along the road with my wobbly head, talking on the phone with one hand, watching a movie on the DVD player mounted just above the radio, eating a bagel with my other hand, whistling. Yes indeed, when I'm driving along juggling all this stuff, I'll know I have a functioning laptop riding in the trunk, deedle-dee-dunk. But I've already said that. Remember to wave.

The photograph was taken at the San Francisco 2007 Cherry Blossom Festival parade with a Nikon D2Xs mounted with a 70-200mm f 2.8 Nikkor lens at 1/750th second, f 2.8, ISO 100.
