Mention of God and wicked people 

So there (still) exist those who delight in harming me...

I feel no need to take revenge myself... I let God rebuke them.

God will repay them for what they have done to me.

As for me, I hope for praise from God.

Q: "if happiness is so readily available, why aren't more people happy?"

A: "it's because they don't believe they can be happy".

It was a sun kissed morning. Anger taking my son to a school I had to stop the car for this one farm away from where I live. I stood and watched the sun rise on my left and the moon set on my right. As I stretched out both arms and felt like I could hold them both for a moment and I thought, let the day begin. #sunrise #motivation #yesican

Pondering:

If I recorded a parodying based on very well known pop music, where should I post it to keep from saddling a host with copyright claims, nor supporting evil corporations?

The easy way to do this is with a backing track, but those have copyright restrictions. And I don't know if my toy piano and I are up to the task. Maybe...

I suppose there's always the possibility of self-hosting on that domain I'm not using...

There's something about these pixelated lines that feel just right.

Quoting from Shakespeare's play, "Twelfth night" 

Orsino (duke of Illyria):

"For women are as roses whose fair flower,
Being once displayed, doth fall that very hour."

Viola (female cross-dressing as her male twin):

"And so they are. Alas, that they are so,
To die, even when they to perfection grow."

- Act 2, Scene 4, Lines 38 to 41

re: Quote about choosing your company/social circle 

Right now, applying that quote in my life means spending time with Rhéni Tauchid's book, "Acrylic painting: Mediums & methods".

Rhéni knows more about acrylic paint than I do, and I am keen to learn

Quote about choosing your company/social circle 

It goes something like: "if you ever find yourself to be the smartest one in the room, I suggest you find smarter people to hang out with: a different room."

I forgot who said it.

While 2020 has been a bad year health wise, it has been a good year observation wise. This is the fourth time this year I've managed to get photos of the Sultan (Camacinia gigantea). :-)

This was at Kranji Marshes, Singapore, today, 29 Nov 2020.

Did a food shoot for a client this morning. This is one of the shots that DIDN'T make the cut.
