Nighttime at the Wharf

This is one of my old routes from before my motor­cy­cle acci­dent in 2007. This was before I had a GPS so I mea­sured out…

Voting with my feet

Today San Fran­cis­cans made their choic­es for May­or, Dis­trict Attor­ney, and Sher­iff, as well as a num­ber of City bal­lot ini­tia­tives, most­ly about bor­row­ing money…

Pawtrero stroll

I start­ed out going just for some cat food. Being made of meat and liv­ing with car­ni­vores I find it pru­dent to make sure there…

They said it shouldn’t be done

Where God speaks

I’m not pre­tend­ing that any deity gives me sports scores or tells me to start a cult but I do have process of putting ques­tions to the uni­verse and wait­ing for answers to appear in my head. Some would call it sub­con­scious infor­ma­tion pro­cess­ing, oth­ers med­i­ta­tion, and still oth­ers prayer. Under var­i­ous names most peo­ple have some way of doing this by let­ting go of the ques­tions and some­how let­ting the answers come to them. I find it works bet­ter to anthro­po­mor­phize it and let the infor­ma­tion come from some­one some­where else even if they are com­ing from with­in. At least that’s how I explain the ben­e­fit of prayer with­out delv­ing into the­ol­o­gy. Whether I believe in God is a ques­tion I don’t know how to answer. But I do ask Him for advice and some­times even lis­ten for answers.
