the first notes

squeezed from bagpipes

small town parade

 

 



 

 

 

 






Independence Day

after all the fireworks, the stars

still there

 

 

 

 

long after

the fireworks

        a shooting star

 

 



 

 

 

 

 

 


fireworks

I close my eyes

for a second look

night train

the fireworks

you missed

 

 

 


 










 

 

boom! boom! ka-boom!
so many duds…

fireworks

after fireworks

yes, we have The Power to Do Good

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 12:03 am

We’ve taken an oath of silence for July, but we’re going to do some pointing tonight.

Please, check out The Power to Do Good — the legal community. making a difference.

Thanks to Jeremy Richey for putting PDG together.

 

Go, sow good seeds — help make equal access to justice a reality.

in an earlier life
good seeds were sown…
my cozy brazier!


 

 

 

canoeing pair small neg

 

 

dewdrops falling
drip-drip, this world
is good!

 

 

 






a good world!
crickets making noise
a black kite dancing

 




 

the sound of oars
lingers…
good stars tonight
