Dawn of the Raccoon

I painted this during my usual crazy early hour of the morning walk. You can see that it was pretty dark. After sitting there awhile, I heard a kind of purring sound. It reminded me of the sound that dinosaur made in Jurassic Park before it attacked Newman. I didn’t move at first, then I turned and clearly saw a raccoon standing up looking at me not three yards away, and another scampering away. I said softly, “It’s okay.” I said it not only to calm the raccoon… but also to calm myself. Then I turned and deliberately walked away.

via Russian Hill

During my travels in San Francisco I climbed Russian Hill. I took these photos below there. Upon taking them I sat on a ledge of a planter that had a hedge in it before heading down again. While leaving I realized my day planner was gone. I then remembered I used it as a cushion on the ledge. Within an hour of realizing this my daughter received a message on her phone. On her phone the message and the accent indicated they were from Alabama. They said they found my planner on the ledge and hid it in the hedge where only I could find it. I found it the next day. I was not only thankful but also impressed with their integrity and resourcefulness. I still don’t know how they found my daughter’s phone number.

It’s photo time. Above are stormy seas I took around Christmas. It was kind of fun a little scary to watch. It’s one of my recent favorites.
