Reflect This — Sky Watch

A Patch of Sky

A Patch of Sky

What I like most about this image isn’t the patch of tree and sky in the rear view mirror, but the same scenery reflected in the chrome.  The bike belongs to my neighbor, a young lady who uses it to take her back and forth to college.  Did you know that, My First Car Was a Motorcycle?  Yep.  True story.

Dame Melli, the lady-fair of our current photo-quest, has requested dragons, so yesterday I set out on a perilous dragon hunt and managed to bag a few of the wily creatures. It wasn’t easy. Dragons don’t care for publicity and most people that find them don’t come back to tell their tales. Even so, I managed to find the diary of an archaeologist who works with dragon bones. Here is his sketch of what the earliest known dragon probably looked like.

Friday Sky Watch — Over Honolulu

Monday, the day of the flat tires, did not begin with great joy, but it ended peacefully. Sunburnt and exhausted from our weekend schedule, OC was running late.. When he finally made it out of the house, it was to discover the left front car tire flat. It had picked up a nail. He took the bus pass and meandered less than enthusiastically to the bus stop for a two-point-five hour commute to work. He left me to put in a call to roadside service.

The responding tow truck came all the way from the other side of the island, and took an hour and a half to arrive. He changed the left front tire, and checked the other three. “When did you last have your tires checked?” He queried. I told him it had been just a few weeks earlier when I’d had my oil changed. He said, “We’ll, this right rear one is seven pounds low. You’d better get it checked when you have the other one repaired.”

So I loaded the car with OC’s music gear, took the car to the shop and had two tires patched, and then my friend and I went to the movies. After the movie I met OC at work — surprising him with a Rueben Sandwich from his favorite sandwich shop — and went to his music rehearsal with him.

The Oahu Civic Orchestra rehearses at Chaminade University. I had been there previously and spent a lovely couple of hours sitting on a bench outside the rehearsal room talking to a King Toad and reading the newspaper. This time, camera in hand, I walked around a bit. Chaminade is built on a hillside and always when I am there, I look up. On this particular visit I turned around and looked down. Oh my …..
