… the right music to start writing tonight and after going through some of my old favorites like “Acoustic” by Everything But The Girl and a few other groups like them, I ended up with an old album of Rod McKuen … and then the right photo appeared and time to combine and wrap the day. This Bald Eagle gave me about ten minutes of fun shooting a couple of months ago … patience pays off.
Another rainy day, no flying, but fun visits with friends and a start on catching up on emails … under 200 now so there is hope. More work on the presentation for Keep Sedona Beautiful, made a few cuts on opals that will be inset in black jade and the next step is to get a perfect round to fit in the holes I core drilled. There are more uses for a faceting machine than faceting stones and this is one of them … dop the stone, put it into the collet and set the angle to 90 degrees and free rotate on the flat lap until you have a perfect round and then take it down to the proper size which will be about 5.9mm for a 6.0mm hole. So now you know :+)
A wrap for the night as weather is looking pretty good for the morning and hoping for low clouds with lots of blue holes in the morning and get on top and shoot through the holes again. If it works, another aerial will go out tomorrow night, but shots of the natural aviators are fun too. Have a beautiful day and smile … first shots of espresso in about five hours … smiling!
Cheers … keep breathing and your day will be beautiful … you might even smile at such a simple gift …
So each one to his wish, and as for me,
I sit tonight and wait
To find the answers to my soul in me,
And in the beauty of the sky and sea.
