Sights & Sounds

Recent sights...

Taken from my street...smoke coming from the Gap Fire burning 
up the hills of Goleta


I went for a walk in the morning on the Fourth, and around the corner saw this house laden with patriotic decor and handmade signs (likely by kids) with tidbits about our country's fight for & declaration of Independence.  I was touched by their unique attention to the 
meaning of the holiday.  
Click on the photos to see them bigger and to read the signs...




Recent sounds...

I run the stadium stairs a SB City College a couple times a week, and this past month I've been pairing that with my Coldplay's new album blasting through my headphones.  Reaching the top of the stairs while "Lovers in Japan" soars into its musical climax and then turning around to see the Pacific stretching out far far into the blue... There is nothing like it.
