Last post I talked about density/proximity issues in Taiwan with urban rural blurring. Here is a good photographic juxtaposition of urban/rural and nature/man.
For those of you that are in or will be in Taichung area on 7/24/10 we are having Taichung WorldWide Photowalk again this year.
I know I've said this before and I'll say it again. One of the things I love about Taiwan is because of it's population density/area relation that city and country quickly overlap in spots. Here is one of them. Great to leave my 10 story condo by elevator walk for a mile and arrive at this.
Talking Heads-The Big Country
I'm tickled that I escaped from the craft in tact. No bizarre alien tattoos were left and they didn't touch my charge cards. Sometimes a guy gets lucky.
Quite tickled that my son is discovering T-Rex. Planet Queen has always been my fave since it's a little trippy.
Early morning, strolling along. I spotted a tree. Not any tree, but this tree.

Need to do something with my hands...from Prosperity Temple Ciaotun,Taiwan
Trying to work your super hero mojo or manipulate him/her ala Lois Lane did with Superman?
Fever Ray provides something otherworldly with When I Grow Up.
In Taiwanese temples it is very common to find this coil-shapes incense cones. Their geometry is very appealing to me. I hope you find them appealing as well.
Supersister was a great Dutch prog rock band from the early 70's. Spiral Staircase is one of their best songs.
By life's pleasures or pressures, treasures or tremors. Abundance or a bondage. People move from highs to low and from low to high. Where are you right now?
I am the Light-Rev Gary Davis. He is one of the finest finger picking folk blues players to have ever been recorded.
One of the amazing things about Taiwanese people is that they are able to sleep just about any where. One of the earliest memories I have is walking down a side street in Taipei and seeing a man snoozing on a chaise lounge on the sidewalk. In fact it was jerry rigged so really a chair with an ad hoc foot rest. I also would see many of the tired students (most of them due to school schedule,school travel and probably cram schools adding to 12 hour days) sleeping any where they could. Including standing upright on bus holding onto a rail. Sleep is a blessing...
