Lucky Number
Sunday. Not so tired this morning. Yes, there's the disoriented part, but it's not coupled with the dead tired thing I had yesterday (resulting in a number of naps) so I drove (not quite ready yet for walking) to breakfast at the usual place. I have no idea if this is good or bad, but the day has begun, the sun is shining and I managed a couple of photographs (two of which are behind the logo). Any day is good when you can get a couple of photographs in before you finish the morning paper.


Well, yes. The brain isn't quite functioning this early in the morning and - who knows? - maybe keeping a journal eventually gets to the cerebral cortex and my much discussed woes come from too much HTML. I bring this up as tomorrow marks the beginning of my tenth year of keeping a journal. I posted a comment or two beginning in January, 1998 on my old web site (since purchased by NBC), but the official start as a “journal” was October 29th, 1998. My original question was would I do it for a month with no idea I might be keeping it for nine years. There are things in my past that might have predicted it, but it's nothing I'd have believed when I started. The Chinese consider nine to be a lucky number, by the way. Maybe nine will be lucky for me.

And that's it?

A ride downtown later this afternoon to pick up some folic acid and have a chicken sandwich for lunch. Didn't feel like walking back, hopped on a bus, returned to the apartment, worked on some photographs. Life in the fast lane (as is every day) here in Oakland.

The photograph was taken at the 2006 Oakland Chinatown Street Fest with a Nikon D2X mounted with a 70 - 200mm f 2.8 Nikkor VR lens at 1/320th second, f 2.8, ISO 100.
