Triangle Lake

Had a great time with a friend paddling the other day. We were fishing for bass but not catching any. I decided to put a tiny hook on and fish for Bluegill. I then caught a tiny one, only about 6cm. As I was reeling in the Bluegill, a big Bass swallowed the little Bluegill and got away.  


Inside You?

I have been going through some real tough things in my life of late. I am recording some spontainious things that are quite strange and are what I am feeling at the moment. I have decided to put those recordings together into a project called, Emotional Experiments. This song is more like Radiohead meets Bauhaus, and then they get in a fight. Sometimes I wonder what is going on inside someone else. They may be calm as a windless morning on a lake, but inside they could be…

No matter what your situation looks like, you have to have faith…

You can’t let all the things you see going on in a major situation get you down…and you may be way, WAY down… you have to have faith.

Sure, the situation may seem hopeless. You may have much to worry about, but faith looks past all those things.

Faith keeps your head above the water and gives you the drive to stand with your sword on The Rock as the wind blows, as the sea rages and the waves come one after the other. Faith gives you the courage to stand and slay the beast that rises from the sea against you.

Faith brings hope worth fighting for!

Building within a building

I wasn’t sure why they were building a building within the building.


But I am sure when it’s all said and done…no one will know it looked like this…



Wheels On Fire

This thing was loud!!!


They had to cut the metal joists in spots, then smash it down, so they could lay electrical conduit before they lay the floor.


I love to be inspired

I love to be inspired…and laying in a chair, reading in the yard, with the goatees nibbling around, can be just what I needed some time.
