Western Scub-Jays

Here is a Western Scrub-Jay taking off with a pine cone in it's mouth. I watched as many came and plucked them off the trees and went to bury them. These are amazing birds. Living in Oklahoma, we do not see these birds. While vacationing in New Mexico we got a great chance to enjoy them.

Jason Silva...if you don't know, you don't know!

So who is Jason Silva?


He's more than much more.
Artist, philosopher, television personality, inspiring, mind blowing
believer, dreamer, imaginer, poet, and totally adorable!


One of his projects is Shots of Awe

The videos he (and of course an awesome creative team) makes are under three minutes. It's actually the best three minutes you will spend during your day. Give it a 'shot'. The link below is one of my favorite....But I love them all!

Nonconformity and the Creative Life

"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music"

Midsummer Nights' Festival

The Midsummer Nights' Fair was this past weekend. It is held in Norman, OK and is sponsored by The Firehouse Art Center. There is always. lots of music, art and food. The temps during the day hit 100 degree but quickly cooled down once the sun dropped behind the trees. The fair (festival) is from 6pm-11pm Friday and Saturday evening.

If you are ever in the state during this time you should drop by. It's a people watcher dream come true.

Oklahoma Watermelon

When they say it takes a lot of room to grow watermelon, they're not kidding.

I planted a hand full of watermelon seeds and they grew. Pictured here is the second melon of the season. It is sometimes hard to tell when they are ripe. This melons had yellow flesh. It was actually sweeter the the red variety I picked a week ago. I think next year I'll try some cantaloupe.

The Hundred-Foot Journey...Oh yes they did!

Soooo... I took my mom to a movie for her birthday. The Hundred-Foot Journey, I knew, was going to be good. But wait, hold the phone, this movie was AWESOME! It was soooo much better than I thought it would be. Well done!
