Ghost walk on the University of Oklahoma campus

Yesterday we went on a ghost walk on the University of Oklahoma. It was really great walk. I learned a lot about the history of the university. 75 minutes of walking on a cool October evening was perfection. The best part of the evening was sitting in the spoon holder, on the north oval, and visiting with the small group we were with. If you get a chance to talk the tour you should go for it.

VLA- The Very Large Array

While in NM last week I realized that the VLA was just outside Socorro. So on our last day in NM we dropped by the VLA. I'll tell you what...It is pretty exciting. They have a small, but cool, museum and a great little gift shop. They are open everyday...even the gift shop. If I lived there I would totally want to work in the gift shop. People from all over the world go there for a quick tour.
Of course technology is most awesome.
So if you find yourself with some extra time drop by the VLA...If nothing else you will have some really cool photos!

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?

FILMMAKER • FUTURIST • EPIPHANY ADDICT

He's more than that...so 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

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.
