Blog Note: Gratitude is the Attitude (OT)

Tom Lovell (1909–1997), Surrender at Appomattox.Painting commissioned by National Geographic in 1965. It's my birthday. (George Harrison's too, so go listen to "It's All Too Much." One of the greatest of all psychedelic-era songs, if you ask me, not just of the Beatles' efforts in that genre). Birthdays, to me, are like Halloween trick-or-treating...great and memorable fun when you're little, and then you try to hang on to the magic until you're maybe fifteen, when you're past the right age f...

A ‘Japanese only’ restaurant due to the coronavirus outbreak

Recently, the owner of the Tokyo restaurant below opted for a ‘Japanese only’ policy due to the coronavirus outbreak. In his tweet announcing the decision, he was at pains to stress that it wasn’t in any way discriminatory. Instead, it was simply a way to try and protect his family, staff and the eatery’s customers. A controversial move it has to be said, but one that doesn’t seem to have affected business, as on Monday (a national holiday), there was a long line of people waiting to get in. Al...

Paris Photos

A mix of photos taken as I was out in Paris on a beautiful day. Well, before I get to the beautiful day, here is a photo I took the night before when it was pouring rain. The back of the Medici Fountain in the Luxembourg Gardens with the first flowering tree I’ve seen. The garden itself was locked so I stuck my phone through the fence. A beautiful cover of a book seen in the window of an antique book store. A bouquiniste set up along the Seine. The Pont des Arts,...

The "Best Sunrise" album.

That's the first photograph in a set of 31 photographs, in chronological order, beginning on September 18, 2019. I've put them together because I want to make some judgments about what is most beautiful in a sunrise and in an effort to capture it in an iPhone photograph. As I quickly made these selections, I didn't check to see whether photographs were done on the same day, and it turned out that there were 6 days with 2 photographs, which means there were only 25 days out of over 100 days whe...

A Travel Guide to Bacalar, Mexico’s Lake of Seven Colors

If you’re looking to experience the brightest, clearest, most shimmering body of water of your life, I have some advice: travel to Bacalar, Mexico. I spent two months living in the city of Mérida, Mexico. Mérida is a great place to live for so many reasons, but perhaps the #1 reason is because there are so many cool places within a few hours’ drive. And so a big group of friends and I decided to plan a weekend trip to Bacalar. I knew we’d have a great time. But I had no idea just how spect...
