Beautiful break in the weather yesterday aft. while I was riding on "Woodlands Trace" through Land Between the Lakes. Absolutely gorgeous. Stopped into the visitor center on Golden Pond and watched a planetarium show on the weather on other planets -- coincidental??? I think not, especially, since what was scheduled was something about moons. Really put things into perspective for me. The thought also crossed my mind that if we as a planet don't get our carbon footprint down, we are in for a lot worse than what we are seeing now. The man doing the show looked like Alec Baldwin ( Rob) and he used to ride a S 1000 BMW -- He asked if he could take a selfie with me....... my pleasure.
Also learned that the big dipper is an asterism and not a constellation. Think I knew that at one point in my life but had forgotten. There are, in case you are interested, 88 constellations in the sky --- 44 in each hemisphere. The constellations that the planets move through are on an elliptical path --- the zodiac. Pretty cool --- all of a sudden my astrological charts started to make a little more sense.
Once again, I noticed cemetery signs everywhere, although different from the other signs, the format of these signs was all the same and they pointed down stone/dirt roads. ( See pics)
I keep getting pulled to cemeteries --- the first time I picked up my camera after Tommy's death was to photograph a cemetery in Shenandoah Valley last May. One of my favorite series is some double exposure work I did on gravestones while studying at MICA. So I have decided to start listening to my voice and am staying here another night to go explore and photograph ( with my real camera) these cemeteries.
Some closing thoughts:
I recall a scout patch that I probably still have somewhere that said "Camp in the Rain". HAHAHAHA ---- NOT .
Why is Kentucky home of the Bourbon Distillery Trail, yet 39 of their counties are dry??
