Imagination

6AM - Imagination
There is a song whose lyrics begin, "Imagination is crazy, your whole perspective gets hazy....".  That's how I was yesterday.  A little bit crazy.  Because it is September.  The month last year when David died.

I know what grieving is, and I have passed that by.  Thoughts of David no longer depress me.  And yet yesterday on the 1st day of September I was driving in MsTioga in the City of Fort Bragg.  A man was walking on the sidewalk across the street.  He looked just like David.  As I got closer I stared at him.  Was it David?  Was David actually walking down the street here in Fort Bragg?  Crazy?  But that is how imagination is.

Movies about people coming back
I have been very attracted lately to movies about people who somehow come back from being dead.  Please understand that I don't really believe that people return to life after dying.  And yet?

  • "Frequency" is a movie about a fireman who is killed while fighting a fire.  Yet, thirty years after he dies,  this fireman contacts his son using his old ham radio.
  • "The Time Traveler's Wife" is a movie about a man who because of a genetic change travels thru time.  There is a scene where after this man dies, he returns for a few moments to be with his wife and daughter.
  • "Ghost" is the story about a man who is murdered.  However he does not die completely.  Somehow although this man cannot be seen or heard, he communicates with his wife.
My imagination is a bit crazy.  What can I do?  It is September.

11AM - Belgian Waffle video!
Yesterday we wondered about publishing a Belgian Waffle video. Well, here it is!

Hint: You may want to pause the video until your download buffer fills.  Otherwise, the video may stop and start a lot.
