New Online Audio Visual Dictionary

clipped from offers everyone the chance to record and upload a video of themselves defining their chosen word in a complete democratization of the language that will have Samuel Johnson, the compiler of the first dictionary, turning in his grave.

Wow. Maybe this will inspire me to get a webcam.

I'm packing for my move to Venice, Florida next week and found a page I'd taped to my kitchen wall last New Year's Day. It's the write up for 2008 being my #1 Personal Year, the beginning of a new nine-year cycle. Briefly, it said things like "important new beginning" "What you do this year will influence the course of events in your life for the next eight years" "new direction ... for long-range project" "by October your new direction will begin to emerge" --- voila! I hadn't read this since then but it was in April I started searching for a new city, May when I connected with Serenity Gardens in Venice, June when I checked out the possibilities and I make the actual move next week on Sept 26th. I will be in my new home by Oct. 1st and ready to begin!!! I've been feeling a shift in the focus of my work as well. I am excited to see how this all unfolds. How the change impacts my creativity and where I go from here. What fun!!!

San Francisco Street Scene

Here's a photo of a rusty old truck parked in the Castro district of SF. I'll be leaving this Bay Area in 3 weeks and heading for the Southern Bay Area - south of Tampa in Venice, Florida on the Gulf Coast. I'm posting this memory shot of my walks through the City by the Bay. I will keep in touch.
