Returning Post

I have not posted for sometime, but it has not been for a lack of desire to do so.

On Jan 8, 2014 at 9:37 in the evening not feeling well I decided to get off the computer and get some sleep.

In one step a small objected clogged a blood vessel in my right front cranium.  Albeit and fortunately for me for only a short time but long enough to leave permanent and temporary damage.

I found myself standing (in hindsight) 4 steps from my computer not knowing where I was, what I was doing there or even who I was.    I took one step that would define my life for the next few years, and 3 steps I don’t have any memories of.

This event could have been much worse than it was.  I might not have walked away from this one and I know it’s not the first time it’s happened with me.  There have been 2 other events like this, one that dropped me to my knees and stopped my heart and the other that dropped me to the floor for 24 hours.  The previous 2 events left me with near death memories of the other side.  This one did not or at least I don’t remember.  This maybe because for three hours after the Jan 2014 event I could not remember anything.   I now refer to this as the 3 steps I will never remember.  I am lucky to remember anything at all, I think.

So if I look at you like I should know you but I have a puzzled look on my face, just remind me what your name is.  Even if its only been a few days.

My sense of adventure has not been lost though.  This had led me to get off my ass, lose the weight I gained and seek new adventures.  Though I did have to wait for the headaches to mostly go away and I still have to watch that, I am ready for a new set of discoveries.

These I hope to bring you.

And please don’t worry about my health.  I know how to recover very well.  This is not the first time I have had to do this.  I am not ready to be a ghost yet.

Speaking of adventures past and present.  My old friends have moved on to other things also.  So I will still meet up with some of them from time to time and post those adventures I will also be seeking new insights from people I have yet to meet.

I leave you then with a picture from my last outing.  At a private lake with my older brother we took some pictures of the things around us.

You can find the best photos of that labor day photo shoot here in my Google plus page.

Colorado Springs By Night

Out testing my new camera with night photography.

I captured this gem on Gold Camp Road just above the City of Colorado Springs.

A car was nice enough to pass by and light up the road and the rocks for me.

Blood on the Wall

Blood on the Wall

 On Friday July 1st at about 2-3 am in the morning a half Hispanic half White 20 year old male with a height about 5’6″ to 5’9″ entered my apartment unlawfully.

He unfortunately ran into me armed with a 4′ broadsword.  In his attempt to push the sword away he cut his left hand.  At least I believed it was his left hand.

This person is still at large and currently wanted for 2nd degree burglary and other possible crimes.

Additional description:   Skinny muscular build with a defiant gang member mentality.  He is also friends with my neighbors who hid him from the cops in their apartment.

His DNA is now on file just looking to match it with a name.  Yes that is his blood on the wall.

For the record I am ok, but I did loose a $150 dollar night shot Sony camera.  It was broken in the scuffle.

I love historical artifacts and enjoy a few romps behind the ropes of some select museums around Colorado.

My favorite photo’s come from these rare excursions.
