Four weeks until finals…

…but why would anyone ever want to be done with this place?

Sunset from Paschal Winery and Vineyard

@Paschalwines

Last night felt like that day after you’ve been sick for over a week and now you’re 100%. Unfortunately, the smoke returned during the night.

I apologize for the low resolution on this one. I didn’t have my camera so had to settle for this cell phone pic at the Danielle Kelly Soul Project show.

Newport, Oregon sunset

Sunset from Newport, Oregon

Not exactly Ashland, but I’m still out of the country for another 10 days or so. Therefore, something from Oregon will have to suffice for today.

Only rarely do I get involved with politics on the internet, but here goes.

A few months back I was heading to a show at the Rogue Theatre, and there was an amazing sunset happening. As I was about to take a photo of it, I saw this yahoo come out of a liquor store and jump in his bright yellow truck. With country music blaring and an engine putting out far more noise than was necessary he crossed the street and into my shot above. Immediately, his tires screeched to a halt, and he turned his truck in my direction.

He pulled up to me with one hand on his steering wheel and the other on, I can only guess, a gun in his lap. He yells at me, “What are you taking a photo of?!?!” To which I pointed at the sky and respond, “have you not noticed the sunset tonight?” He cussed and drove off, probably to his trailer park to consume his new purchase from the liquor store.

Once upon a time, I’m ashamed to admit, I was fairly right wing in my thinking. I was a proud patriot like this guy (well, maybe not that bad). Then, something happened. I lived in and traveled to many other countries. I found out that America wasn’t nearly as “special” as my upbringing led me to believe. People in other countries were nice, had different ways of thinking, and (gasp) actually had ways of doing things that were better than those in the USA.

Eclipse day -2

Cape Foulweather Lighthouse

We are spending a couple of nights in Corvallis for Monday’s solar eclipse. Today we arrived, headed to the coast (Newport, Oregon), and arrived at the Yaquina Head Lighthouse just as the sun was going down.

Lake Street Dive @ The Gorge (opening for Dave Matthews)

On August 24, Lake Street Dive will be playing at the Britt Festival in Jacksonville. That will likely be my first Britt show of the year. Tickets are still available here.

I saw them last September when they opened for the Dave Matthews Band in Washington three nights in a row.

5 years ago today…

Mt. Shasta sunset from Mt. Ashland on Christmas

@mtashland @whattodoinsoore

We headed up to Mt. Ashland for a walk in the snow on Christmas. Cars were streaming down the mountain as we went up. We hit the parking lot at about 4 which was also when the ski area was closing. It was beautiful, but not as beautiful as it became an hour later when the sun set. Nearly everyone was gone by then. At just 18°, and dropping quickly, I don’t blame them, but they missed the best scene of the day.
