Last night’s dinner and beer didn’t seem to last as long as I thought that it would, as I woke up hungry this morning. A bottle of milk with a sausage biscuit has knocked back my hunger sufficiently.
Read Along With Me
Today’s passage from Notes To Myself.
A theory is a theory, not a reality. All a theory can do is remind me of certain thoughts that were a part of my reality then. A statement or a “fact” is an emphasis — one way of looking at something. At worst it is a kind of myopia. A name is also just one way of seeing something. I can’t make a statement about a reality without omitting many other things which are also true about it. Even if it were possible to say everything that is true about a reality, I still would not have the reality; I would only have the words. In fact, the reality changes even as I talk about it.
When I outgrow my names and facts and theories, or when reality leaves them behind, I become dead if I don’t go on to new ways of seeing things.
To all who have helped me — Thanks.
I struck out with the group last night and realized rather quickly that I didn’t have “it.” I did my best to complete the 4.7 mile scheduled run although my best last night wasn’t very good. Regardless I rewarded myself at the end with a bowl of chili and a couple of Sierra Nevada’s which apparently wasn’t enough to fend off this morning’s hunger.
Is My Doppelganger A Girl?
This morning I pulled up to a traffic light to get onto the connector and when I looked up I realized that my evil doppelganger (see a few days ago) was ahead of me. While it was dark and very hard to see through the Jeep’s rear window I think that I identified my doppelganger as a female. How strange.

I have nothing today. I really need to find more time for photography.
It’s Decision Time
Yesterday I received an email specifying the dates for the upcoming four-day photography seminars being put on by Tips From The Top Floor. The seminars will be held in four cities during the end of July through August. I am interested in either taking the seminar in Nashville, TN or Fort Collins, CO. The Fort Collins seminar interests me more because it’s going to focus on landscape photography whereas the one in Nashville will focus on event photography. The Fort Collins event is further intriguing because the trip could also be done in conjunction with my trip to Colorado for the Colorado Invihashional over Labor Day weekend. Decisions. Decisions.
