Black and white landscapes:path to the hermit’s lair

Dearest odyssians,


Will you be ready for the coming storm? Odie says yes.
Safety awaits.

Black and White photography: understated sadness

Dearest odyssians,


Just discovered after returning home that our favorite pillow which cushioned us through 15 years of dreams was thrown away because “it was old”.  Also lost, the sacred energy imbued in it by thousands of nights of dreams.
We were not ready to let it go. We are inconsolable.
Some things are great because they are old and worn and worthless to every single other person in the world except for you. They are sacred to us and that makes them relics legends priceless.  The person cleaning up is blind to this.  And will never understand. Why attempt to explain.  Guilt will never bring back 3000 long lost dreams.
What does it mean to have to start anew with a new pillow? What will our dreams be like from now on?
I hate this so…
A devastated o and om.

nature photos: youthful horizons

dearest odyssians,

horizons via eyesofodysseus

we just picked up one of those google chromebooks- by way of samsung engineering. it looks great, seems to work ok (except wont stream my beloved netflix movie so im blindly looking for a netflix plugin??? why in the year 2013 should this even be needed?) and it was only 250 buckaroos. not too steep for what these here goods i now got/own. now all i have to do is fix the netflix fiasco debacle taht i mentioned before, and find out where my pics go when i take them from my laptops cam.. I cant find them anywhere right now? are they even being saved? how does this thing work? it cant all be cloud based…. or is it? it aint a mac, so it somehow makes no sense to me how it works. will seek a pc expert for answers.

in the meanwhile im happy to have a physical keyboard that will let me blog easier. and i can start to visit you all and your magnificent wordpress sites again. ive been terribly lax about that. and lax about everything else in my life requiring responsibility. t riple double quadruple ugh. responsibility. that word strikes more fear in me when i  hear  it than any other… say it with me.. ‘responsibility’. so ominous. so horrible. so odious. it implies the weight of the world is upon me to do something, and if that thing is not addressed or taken care of in proper fashion a more negative situation will arise from it not being handled. thats scary as **** for some reason. disaster must be mitigated immediately. or else. thats all it means.

so i tend to look away and hope the pieces fall the right way for me when left to their own devices.  despite me. in spite of me..

what singular words bring cold sweats for you?

for some its bills, and the physical. for others love. trust. odie and i welcome your earnest/personal reveals if you so decide to share. your thoughts are safe here for the world to see.

Beautiful nature landscapes: rainbow coast

Dearest odyssians,


This is definitively one of our fave landscapes in recent memory. Photo art By jeronimo sanz.  He also has a wordpress site :
Taste and view the rainbows in his work.

O and om ● no twist no lime *

*no pirate juice for either of us tonight. Just salt free seawater… and that’s mighty fine by us. Our extended journey to the coast this weekend was not without the expected consequences; A few wrinkles and a lot of laughs. Carry on odyssians!
