Hobo’s Lullaby

Hobo’s Lullaby

going places

…And the sons of engineers
Ride their father’s magic carpets made of steel.
Mothers with their babes asleep,
Are rockin’ to the gentle beat
And the rhythm of the rails is all they dream…

…Good night, America, how are you?
Don’t you know me I’m your native son,
I’m the train they call The City of New Orleans,
I’ll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

Chateau in the morning

I love the golden hours and on this morning the light coming from the gabled roofline of the Chateau Marmont as the city of Los Angeles begins to come to life.

These little things are Plutos

A pluot is a hybrid between a plum and an apricot. They are sweet little jewels of flavor.

Staffordshire Dogs

This poor Staffordshire Spaniel sat all alone guarding the contents of its vessel. Normally seen in pairs, these dogs have a long history that ranges from great protector of home and hearth to warning lover’s of whether a husband was home or at sea.

For you

bokeh celebration

I’ve heard this song for a few years now and each time it moves me. It seems the perfect song written just for us. This is made all the more relevant as Brandi performs it at Austin City Limits – just down the road a piece.

Happy Birthday – I have loved the years to now and will cherish the ones remaining.

All of these lines…
