That's a nice self-portrait.

Off to bed for me too and I'll be looking for your post later today.

Hey, you look marvelous! and I know what you mean about peace and contentment.
Aug. 11th, 2006 03:28 pm (UTC)
The road just does that for me.

Aug. 11th, 2006 12:00 pm (UTC)
That sounds awesome! I can't WAIT to take a road trip again!

Guess I could have stopped by and picked you up.

Makes one want to leave the Midwest altogether....oh wait...I AM!!!

Well Kansas is sort of in between midwest and the West. I'm starting to like that state more and more as I get off the interstates and take the back roads.

Welll er thanks. I'll take that as a compliment. Hope you don't conjur up thoughts of the ex if we ever meet though.

That's a great photograph; your hair is beautiful :-)
Aug. 11th, 2006 03:40 pm (UTC)
Thanks love. I lost the mustache as of this morning (tired of tasting my soup hours later) butthe long hair is here to stay. It's starting to get some grey in it though.

Aug. 11th, 2006 03:38 pm (UTC)
Hee hee, mustache...
Aug. 11th, 2006 04:08 pm (UTC)
It's gone as of this morning. I was getting a bit annoyed with it. But I'll probably grow it back as I have friends on the east coast that wantto see it when I go in 5 weeks. Whenever I ate ice cream it was getting in my mustache and it was irritating. I like how I look with it though.

Nice, glad you had a good trip.

that is an excellent picture.

Aug. 11th, 2006 07:25 pm (UTC)
Thanks. I always try to take one self portrait when I travel. It usually ends up being the only pic of me. I like to use these to remember how I was feeling at the time.

You've got awesome rings. I used to wear hematite and black onyx in high school, but took them off when beginning piano studies in college. None of the rings fit anymore, so I didn't bother trying to replace. I just wear a lot of bracelets now.

I'd like some time of peaceful contentmnent out in the open. I wonder if anyone around here is game.

I'm kind of a loner in that respect. Things get built up and I've got my places to go to get rid of all the sediment holding me down. Cimarron, NM is my main one but the ocean is another. So about once per quarter, I just go somewhere and unwind. What is your ring size?
