Danny’s World: Out For A Stroll

It’s already in the 90’s today which makes it really difficult for me to walk long distances. MS forces me to limit my exposure to hot temps. Even Bentley doesn’t want to be out here!

I love our neighborhood.  It is quiet and friendly and easy to walk for a little exercise.

I’ve seen this building a thousand times but never from this angle; it was like seeing it for the first time ever.  Perspective is a funny thing isn’t it?!

Today’s Featured Blog…Robert Turner!

Robert Turner

Do you need your “space” to create? A sacred area of peace and tranquility where you can tap into that wealth of creativity you can feel lurking in dark crevices in your mind.

Is it a place no one dares enter when you are in residency for fear of serious bodily harm or a tirade of verbal abuse that will need years of counselling to reverse? I too, once enjoyed my own fortress of solitude, perched loftily behind a kitchen wall and accessed through a narrow passage way.

Those days have long passed, the fortress now abandoned to a hoard of hobbit sized little trolls who exercised squatting rights the moment I left.

For those of you who are shaking your heads in horror at the thought of fellow writer divested of his creative castle, take heed of these words..

FREEDOM, freedom, freedom. Okay so just one word, but repeat…

Danny’s World: A Retrospective

I have been using my blog to test a new strategy of posts and I hope you have enjoyed the more personal “live” feel.  For those of you who are just joining the party I have been using my blog as my social media outlet, posting pics from my life as it’s happening.

Today going through my laptop I came across some old pics of Evelina and I and thought I’d share.  Hope you enjoy…

The group of photos above are from when Evelina and I first met in March 2011-August 2011.  In that span we visited Asheville, Hilton Head Island, New Orleans and Dallas; all road trips which gave us a lot of time together.

Our day hiking Crowder’s Mountain…

This is our first Christmas together in 2011 and New Year’s in Ocean Isle, NC.

Not So Fleet-Footed

Second Wind Leisure Perspectives

A Tortoise Crossed the Road

I took a much-needed bike ride today in the cool morning breeze and stopped to see a tortoise crossing the bike trail. The Park Ranger dutifully guarded the little guy as he slowly ambled his way across the trail, making sure cyclists didn’t accidentally run him over.

I hadn’t planned to post for the Weekly Photo Challenge today, but I couldn’t resist sharing this fleeting moment in time for the theme of Evanescent.

Danger Averted, Too!

Second Wind Leisure Perspectives

Middle School kids sporting their life jackets walk toward the river.

While out on a bike ride this morning on the American River Biketrail, I caught a group of middle-schoolers sporting their life-jackets. Seeing this made me very happy as they began their walk toward the water.

Bonus points for the bicyclist sitting with his bandaged knee, who apparently experienced a little Danger! of this own! He is wearing a bike helmet so in case he did fall from his bike, a skinned knee might be the worst of it!

Middle school kids avert danger by wearing life jackets even in knee-deep water.

As I was riding, and not to appear like a stalker, I came upon the kids knee-deep in the water searching for tadpoles and other water-life.

After 20+ years of being involved in swimming and aquatics, nothing makes me happier than witnessing this act of safety and a great leisure education lesson.

May is National Water Safety Month

We continue to celebrate National Water Safety Month to bring awareness to the dangers of playing in and around…
