The Work of Chalkman

 

I forgot I had these photos of the work of Chalkman. I was walking along Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco a couple of months ago and saw his work and thought it was wonderful:

Following the Truckee River

 



When I went to Reno last month, I took Amtrak. Just some simple shots as I was going through the Sierra's and following the Truckee River:











And what is cool is that you end up getting a little glimpse of Donner Lake:



Who knows, I might have more pics somewhere from the train to share at a later date.

Music Monday: Summer Movie Songs of the 1980's

 I was watching something on summer movies from the 80's and just remembering some of those great tunes from summer times when I was young (Also, I was going through my record collection and I happen to own a lot of these sound tracks on vinyl-LOL). So here are some songs from summer movies of the 1980's and to make it hard on myself I decided to pick only one song from a year and the movies had to be released from April to late August (as the release schedules back then were not as targeted as they are now and movies played longer in the theaters):

From Rocky III (1982):


From Electric Dreams (1984):



From St.Elmo's Fire (1985):


From Short Circuit (1986):

From Dirty Dancing (1987):


From Say Anything (1989):

Hope you enjoyed this little look down memory lane.

A Look at Holy Spirit Church



I went over to Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Fremont to some quiet time and to look around:

The Front of Holy Spirit




The back








Holy Spirit is a beautiful place and such a nice, quiet place to mediate.
