I am facinated by these spots


What are you afraid of people seeing?

The Little Duck

Now we are ready to look at something pretty special.
It is a duck riding the ocean a hundred feet beyond the surf,
And he cuddles in the swells.
There is a big heaving in the Atlantic.
And he is part of it.
He can rest while the Atlantic heaves, because he rests in the Atlantic.
Probably he doesn’t know how large the ocean is.
And neither do you.
But he realizes it.
And what does he do, I ask you.
He sits down in it.
He reposes in the immediate as if it were infinity – which it is.
That is religion, and the duck has it.
I like the little duck.
He doesn’t know much.
But he has religion.
-Donald Babcock, The Lyfe Poems of Donald Babcock

Pretty amazing rendition of Parton/Houston classic.

Some have commented that they think he is lip syncing. This video, where he shows some dance moves too, should dispel that.

Festival envy

Its that time of year again where I am envious of all those other areas of the country that have cool music festivals near them. Also, I’m envious of the folks who can take off the time and hang out in a field for 3 or more days. Just looking at the lineups (and the venues) has me planning roadtrips. Too bad the one that looks the best to me is on Memorial Day Weekend – when I have plans.

iPad limitation no more

I have some thoughts on the iPad to share, perhaps in a subsequent post but right now, Apple is unveiling multitasking support (in it’s own somewhat limited way) for the new iPhone (iPad) 4 OS.
Here is what multitasking support will open up:

Getting closer to a done deal for me. I wonder if their second rev will be lighter. I really would like about a half pound shaved off.

Who can brown do for you?
