Not totally photo related, not just a journal. A bit of both.

It will be over sometime soon

 
Undisturbed and waiting for spring, 2010

While today is wet, foggy, and rainy, with snow threatening to melt, the season is still deep in the heart of winter. These dark, short gloomy days and cold nights can't end soon enough for me.

One thing I have noticed is that over December and into January, not being on the computer much and not really doing much but thinking and hibernating and reading, something changed.

For the past few months, I have had lots of TV channels. Way too many really to even know whats on... And at first I OD'd on watching the three CSI, the two NCIS, Flashforward, Fringe, and a new favourite Criminal Minds. I watched on AnE almost every episode in the past couple of months. It was great. But now? I don't care for it. I would rather watch TV to learn something. Or local news (which there is less and less of), or movies. I watch a lot of the BBC. And while I am not into cars I am addicted to Top Gear. Weird I know.

I am just finding I don't see the need to watch the realistic violence and gore. Not that it bothers me, but when there is so much sadness and real death in the world - see Haiti for example - why not to just bring in more of the good and the beautiful?

Just be careful when doing it to not show a boobie on tv. Because while you can show a GSW to the head, or someone being blown apart or tortured in exquisite detail, you might make some flowers n kittens fan in Middle America write a letter, complain about a photo, or have the FCC fine a network hundreds of thousands for a nipple slip.

Remember, no matter the context, people don't kill people. Boobs kill people.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
