Today’s photo comes from a time before the SOU track and field received a much needed face lift. SOU Lacrosse no longer plays games on this field.

Another photo today from our walk on the Oregon Coast yesterday. You can see rain happening in the Pacific Ocean in this photo which was far more pleasant than the rain falling on us a bit earlier. The good thing about the rain was it cleared out most of the tourists.

If you are trying to find this spot, Google “Cape Perpetua Special Interest Area”.

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.

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.
