Caroline

2015-05-24 BlogBlog RSSRSS

En 1999, j’écris une petite nouvelle intitulée “Caroline” pour un concours sur le thème du voyage organisé par l’Association des Commerçants de la rue St Georges à Rennes. La nouvelle est retenue pour figurer parmi les 6 derniers finalistes sur plus de 300 participants et me vaut l’intérêt et les compliments du jury dont un [...]

Fragments: ~A Handfull of Crumbs~

2013-05-18 BlogBlog RSSRSS

~A Handful of Crumbs~ Crumbs gathered, Clandestine, From our daily buffet, Filling our own outstretched palms, ..and others, Along the way. They gathered closely, Then quickly flew away, As the sun rode high, And sweet music played. A lifted arm, Hands raised, Offered in silent supplication, With a  handful  of crumbs, Brought them back, In [...]

Return to the Return to the Ice Caves!

2012-08-02 BlogBlog RSSRSS

Had to break up Monday’s travels into two videos.  Here is the conclusion of my return to the Ice Caves of the Cascade Mountains. Any music experts out there, help me out.  There are several “lead” instruments in the musical composition in this background music.  I think they’re primarily alto saxophone and oboe, but I [...]

2012-07-14 BlogBlog RSSRSS

In Episode 12 of the Tour d’Joko, Yellowstone Edition, I was preparing to leave the park, but could not due to the snowstorm that enveloped the park… on May 27th. The snowplows eventually cleared the road north, and off I was.  Planning one final stop at Fort Yellowstone at the town of Mammoth, where I [...]

Hot, Steamy Holes! Tour d’Joko: Episode Six

2012-06-15 BlogBlog RSSRSS

My goal for this Tour d’Joko, Yellowstone Edition, was to make it as close as possible to an actual commercial production. You’ve yet to see the ripest fruit of that effort, but I’ve related some details about problems with government permits, bad weather and faulty or missing equipment, challenges which studio made stuff I‘m sure [...]

MONTANA! Tour d’Joko – Yellowstone: Episode Three

2012-06-03 BlogBlog RSSRSS

Day two took me into Montana, a place I had never been, and one of our more unusual states. Physically, as you’ll see, the place is gorgeous (okay, most places are gorgeous in the month of May). Politically, although a “red“ state, they aren’t the invasive, up-in-your-business kind of conservatives. I was able to find [...]

Introducing the Tour d’Joko: Yellowstone Edition

Yellowstone was magical. At times, I faced challenges that required heroic measures. It seemed to me that introducing the story as a fairy tale was the way to go.

DISASTERS d’Joko, This too shall pass

2012-02-05 BlogBlog RSSRSS

The weekend off.  Beautiful, unseasonably warm winter weather.  A full tank of gas.  Where, oh where in the Evergreen State should I go on the next Tour d’Joko? My last three trips had been to the east, hiking mountain trails (or trying to) in the Cascade Range.  I wanted to see something different this time.  [...]

WHERE TO GO?

2011-12-02 BlogBlog RSSRSS

It’s December.  I can’t help but think ahead.  In two weeks, I’ll have my drivers license back, insurance and a dependable vehicle in which to travel.  See, before my life changed 20 months ago, road trips, making videos and exploring the world were my favorite things to do. Few if any of you reading this [...]

4 Years, the 3rd Quarter and The Smell of Winter

2011-10-05 BlogBlog RSSRSS

Four years ago today, I became a resident of Washington state, arriving here from California. Weirdly, I had three occasions today to say in three real life encounters, “it’s funny you should ask that, because I moved here four years ago today.” The first two were instigated by me as I tried to create rapport [...]

Airport Food, the TSA and Windows 7: Tour d’Joko- Holiday Edition

2010-12-29 BlogBlog RSSRSS

Usually, food tastes better when you overpay for it.  When you go to a sporting event, for example, those $10 sausages taste  incredible!  Popcorn at the movie theatre taste far better than anything one could make at home, and its not just because of that unknown oily stuff they call butter either.  It’s psychological.  We’re [...]
