Carbon Out

Tuesday. I did get to bed early, I did watch the latest episode of BrainDead on the tablet (brain eating bugs have taken over Congress on CBS!!!), checked out Charlie Rose, but then said the hell with it and returned to bed to turn out the lights and get what I'm guessing was a good night's rest. Up without effort at six-thirty, out the door to walk to breakfast feeling pretty good. Not complaining, anyway.

Nothing on today's schedule so we'll see how that plays out. Stuff to do around here, but I've gone over this “need to get my act in gear” enough that even I'm tired to talking about it. Again, not a bad day, looks like the sun may come out. It's nine-thirty. Have the news sites to read, but then it's out the door and into the light.

Later. A walk over to the burger drive-in to pick up a grilled chicken sandwich. No problem talking myself into it as I was hungry this time after a light waffle with sliced fruit breakfast. Otherwise time spent on the tablet, the usual surfing the web news sites and now that it's approaching late afternoon, I'm assuming that's about it. For going outside or doing something productive.

A final look at the Art & Soul photographs, putting together four or five it might have been nice to include on the web. Added two of them accessible by clicking through the individual pictures - no small thumbnail images linked to them - but otherwise that's been about it. I suspect we'll now go back to the tablet until Democracy Now comes up.

Evening. Listened to Democracy Now, watched more episodes of American Crime, a series I found on Netflix recently that's captured my interest - good story line, decent acting and the like - but also frustrating in that I'm not sure there's a single character I find appealing. Makes me switch to something else from time to time to clear the carbon out.

The photo up top was taken Saturday at the Oakland Art & Soul Festival with a Nikon D5 mounted with a 70-200mm f 2.8 VR II Nikkor lens.
