Swimp Boats At The Rocky Point Port   2 comments

“The meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day, from hour to hour. What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person’s life at a given moment.

To put the question in general terms would be to the question posed to a chess champion: “Tell me, Master, what is the best move in the world?”

There simply is no such thing as the best or even a good move apart from a particular situation in a game and the particular personality of one’s opponent.

The same holds for human existence. One should not search for an abstract meaning of life. Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life to carry out a concrete assignment which demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated. Thus, everyone’s task is as unique as is his specific opportunity to implement it. 

As each situation in life represents a challenge to man and presents a problem for him to solve, the question of the meaning of life may actually be reversed. Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of life is, but rather he must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.”

–Viktor E. Frankl

Old Downtown Rocky Point Painting   Leave a comment

Old Shoreline-3369 Highpass Oil Painting blogPainting by kenne

An old fishing town
On a rock across the bay
From see-through condos.

Shrimp boats come and go
Charter boats take tourists out
To fish and watch whales.

Drug stores, restaurants
And fish markets line main street
Where Al Capone lived.

Legal drugs by day
Safe for tourists on the streets
Cartel moves at night.

Fishing Off The Coast Of Puerto Peñasco   5 comments

We arrived in Puerto Peñasco Sunday afternoon, February 11th, planning on going fishing in the Sea of Cortez on Tuesday. However, because of a forecast of strong winds, the fishing trip was rescheduled for calm seas on Thursday afternoon.

I was able to catch some small sea bass after the second and third tries. Tom caught a couple, so we had plenty for dinner. Captain Chris also added to the total catch. Joy and Patty watched. Joy also took some of these photos.

Sunset Over The Sea   2 comments

Sunset-1009 II_art blogSunset Over The Sea of Cortez (Puerto Peñasco, February 12, 2018) — Computer Art by kenne

The poem,
the song,
the picture,
is only water
drawn
from the well
of the people,
and it should
be given back
to them
in a cup
of beauty
so that they
may drink –
and in drinking
understand themselves.

— Federico Garcia Lorca

Capturing The Moment — Silence Is Golden   8 comments

Sycamore Reservoir Hike-0173 blogSunset On The La Pinta’ Peninsula — Image by kenne

Silence Is Golden

sand harden

by the returning sea

we walk

into the day’s twilight

holding on

to the moment

hand ‘n hand.

a lone seagull

flies near the line

between us and

the setting sun

seconds away

from ending the day

we honor

the golden sunset

by entering our

sound of silence

where words are

best left unsaid —

yes,

silence is golden.

Walking With A Friend   Leave a comment

Tom on the Beach Art I framed II blogWalking with a Friend — Image by kenne

This past spring my friend Tom and I had planned on going to Puerto Penasco, Mexico to spend a few days fishing. About a week before the trip, Tom had his sixth and last chemo treatment. He had gone through the previous treatments with few side-effects, but this one really made walking very difficult. We still made the trip knowing fishing was not likely. We still has a very good time.

One of the things we did was gone for walks along the beach. Previous posting have chronicled our trip, but I had forgotten that I had also taken some photos and video with my iPhone, which I share here.

Tom is in remission and is current fishing with his son in Wales.

Blue Bottles . . . The Winds Of Time Trapped In Glass   3 comments

Rocky PointBlue Bottles at Sandy Beach, Puerto Peñasco — Image by kenne

Sand moves
on streets
by chance
staying on those
who sweep 
the streets 
of others.

Two ex-pats
in the shade
of the front porch
playing cards
hold’em?
fold’em?
passing time.

Bluebottles
stand for counting
ten?
twenty?
thirty?
tourist’s guessing
drive by.

. . . the winds of change
trapped in glass.

Morning Walk On The Puerto Peñasco Beach   4 comments

Rocky PointPuerto Peñasco Beach — Image by kenne

I walk Puerto Peñasco beach
toward the morning sunrise.

Puddles of water abandoned by the tide
run together channeling to the sea.

Gaining speed turning backs to my eyes
sliding on the sea of stone.

Leaving behind reflections
channeling thoughts of storms past.

Above, the dragon birds fly shallow waters
in search of day treasures trembling below.
