Zen and the Art of Motor Vehicle Maintenance

Situated within these mountains of monasteries and original hippies, this car repair is cosmically fitting.

Do repairs on hybrids up one's karma quotient?

Because of Martin

Rosa sat, so Martin could walk, so Obama could run, so someone could paint this on their house. Yes, it's been on display since the election.

Not to be outdone, a squirrel has posted this on his house.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr. (who would have been 82 years old this year.) We have much to owe this great man.

Whether walking in the city or hiking in the woods, my eyes are drawn to the beauty often found in discarded and decaying objects. Apparently, I'm not alone.

What first appears to be a random jumble of branches and boughs and roadside detritus is, on closer inspection, a rather cool assemblage of found objets de rouille. (or plain old rusty cans...ignore my snobby cosmopolitan alter ego)

Happy New Year!
