Read books that will make you look good if you die in the middle of them.


(coming August 12)

Oh, Tampa Bay

Greetings from the Hermit Writer.

Why is water so calming?

I love to watch the boats go by.

Love to watch the changing texture of the sky, too.

Vroom. Guess his fishing is done.

Tug, just lumbering across the bay.

See ya, guy.

The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them.



This is Florida

Greetings from the Hermit Writer.

Looking across Tampa Bay

I could live on that boat.

Imagine the daily sunsets.

Whoa. The storm is coming.

In the meantime, I'll enjoy the bay.

...and the tugboats

A Fav Passage to get you through the W/E

Not that the band sucked. I just don’t do the night scene. Cigarette smoke burns my sinuses. And I’m as boring as my mom. My music tastes are actually mellower than hers. She often wears an old Metallica tee on the weekends working in her yard. Must be a hundred years old. The tee, not my mom.



(Still in edit)


It's Summer. It's Hot

Greetings from the Hermit Writer.

The heat means lots of afternoon THUNDER boomers.

This gull didn't seem worried about the coming storm.

Neither did this fisherman.

This is my favorite tree today.

There were showers to my north, too.

I like grassy beaches, don't you?

Florida, Flat like This

Greetings from the Hermit Writer.

There's a little water around Florida

Mostly we spend a lot of time looking through trees

St. Pete, across Tampa Bay

There's a bit of fishing down here.

Did I mention, water? Can you see the Skyway in the background?

Ow. That was bright.

Greetings from the sad Hermit Writer...the last shots from Marjorie Park.

I could write from one of those boats. I really could.


You really didn't think I'd let you go without more shots of the clouds alive with the sunset, did you? (Maybe I should have photoshopped that edge of the street light out.)

Woo Hoo...More Clouds

Greetings from the Hermit Writer, from Seddon Channel.


That blackbird has a great view!

A very young green heron. I'm gonna name him Skruffy.

Sun streaks, in the eastern sky, at sunset...hmm

Wow! Isn't that slap-ya-silly freaking gorgeous?

Ahhhhh.

Greetings from the Hermit Writer.

Dina and I talk about moving to Wyoming to get out of the heat...but times like this...I don't know.

I think I'd rather move...to a boat.

I love the oak trees over my property...but because of them, I can't see this every evening.

And I love clouds.

There! That boat. I could live on that boat.

More Clouds, Water, and some Boats

Greetings from the Hermit Writer.

Have I mentioned I love clouds?

Especially sunset clouds.

I should live on a boat.

Because I love the water...and could have this view every night.

I'm at peace.

(Just to relax you too.)

Sky, Clouds, Water oh my

Greetings from the Hermit Writer.

Hard for me to pass up a pretty cloud

Across the Seddon Channel
