Crazy Love








Crazy Love

I can hear her heart beat from a thousand miles
And the heavens open every time she smiles
And when I come to her that's where I belong
Yet I'm running to her like a river's song


She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

She's got a fine sense of humor when I'm feeling low down
And when I come to her when the sun goes down
Take away my trouble, take away my grief
Take away my heartache, in the night like a thief

She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

Yes I need her in the daytime
Yes I need her in the night
Yes I want to throw my arms around her
Kiss her hug her kiss her hug her tight
And when I'm returning from so far away
She gives me some sweet lovin' brighten up my day
Yes it makes me righteous, yes it makes me feel whole
Yes it makes me mellow down in to my soul

She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

Everest Khumbu Ice Fall (Gineth Soto)




'The Khumbu icefall is a passage of constantly-falling ice from the head of the Khumbu glacier, at the point where the ice begins to melt. It is found at around 5,486 metres (17,999ft) above sea level on the Nepalese side of Mount Everest, not far from base camp.


It has been labelled the most dangerous part of the trip up the South Col route to the summit of the mountain.' itv.com

Window Display




Years ago, I volunteered afternoons at the Cooper House store in Monterey as a member of the Old Monterey Preservation Society (OMPS) with Nina Alioti. One quiet afternoon, I sketched the window display.

Don't know if they still sell coffee in cans. I remember some of these.

Old cans and succulents.

Carolina Shag

Gotta love the Carolina Shag.

What makes this great is that it's all lead and follow, i.e., it's not choreographed. They obviously know the music and have danced together previously, but they improvise on the fly.  Outstanding!


The dancing starts @ 0:44


She hijacks him @2:07
