I love when….

great photos and sentiments


I love when a late October day is crisp

and I can see my breath

..floating in the air

Faery homes glisten in the early morning fields

..still sparkling

from the night before

Somehow I just know they’ve been dancing

all hours long

in the silvery blue moonlight..

Mist rises




from the silence

of the pond

..as though it is whispering a secret long held within

a weary traveler from the hot dry summertime


..letting go

Snow white crane stands triumphantly,

A beacon beneath the crimson leaves

And, there is a tree in the heart of the woods on the right of my path that will turn the color of sunshine soon

But, for now

..tiny star flowers are blooming in its tender shade

Autumn has arrived with colorful fanfare

Tomorrow it will be November…again

And yet, full of moments that have never been

How to Reverse Tooth Decay

Foundation Operation X for languages, cultures and perspectives

Written by Dyami Millarson

Underlying tooth decay, there is a constant battle between demineralisation and mineralisation (*1). Dental caries may simply be defined as the cumulative result of the cyclical ebbs and flows of demineralisation and mineralisation (*2, *3). Remineralisation is the term used for the normal daily process whereby the teeth, namely the enamel and dentin, are repaired from demineralisation (*4). Enamel is the material that covers the outside layer of the teeth above the crown (*5). It is one of the most mineralised and hardest parts of the human body (*6). Enamel is a composite of both organic and inorganic components, and the same is the case for dentin (*1). So far we have spoken about enamel, but we ought to treat dentin in more detail as well: although enamel is the hard dental tissue…

What is it? Coyote or other?

Northern Desert Photography

I have been hearing rumors about a white coyote for the last couple of months out near where I work. My work place sits on a sagebrush bench about 2 miles above the river. There is a gas station food mart nearer the river and rumor has it the white coyote hangs out there along with normal colored coyotes, being fed by truck drivers and other patrons. It is a very bad idea to feed wildlife by the way. We have sadly had to deal with aggressive coyotes this summer, who have attacked co-workers in our parking lot in search of a hand out. This problem is a direct result of being fed by people. They have lost their fear of people and look to humans as a food source. Fortunately no persons have been hurt but we have had to contact Wildlife officials to deal with the coyote issue.

I HEREWITH WOULD LIKE TO PRESENT YOU SOME SENTENCESFROM THE POWERFUL AND FOOLHARDY SHANTARAM BY GREGORY DAVID ROBERTS/ Ich möchte euch einige Sätze aus dem aussergewöhnlich packenden und tollkühnen Buch Shantaram vorstellen./Vorrei presentarvi alcune frasi dal bellissimo, potente e temerario libro Shantaram che si svolge maggiormente a Bombay/ India.

The main character, who spends some weeks in a remote and poor village with his friend Prabaker and his family says:

“I was born in those moments, as I stood near the flood sticks with my face lifted to the chrismal rain. Shantaram/peaceful man. The better man that, slowly, and much to late, I began to be.”

Unfortunately I couldn’t find in my foto library exactly the pictures that go with the above…
