The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

73 Years Ago

Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941.
2,403 Americans lost their lives.
Lest we forget.


  1. I good place to remember and meditate.

  2. And we never learn something of attacks.They go on and on in the world with more misery and spoilt lives.

  3. "A day to live in infamy..." Thanks for remembering, John.

  4. It's a date etched into my mind John... my son Craig was born 30 years ago today and Pearl Harbor was one of dates I became aware of all those years ago.
    My dad was in the Royal Navy and served in Ceylon and Singapore... I have loads of photos and must share them one day. He was only seventeen.
    By the way John Lennon gets shot tomorrow.

  5. Thank you for remembering John, I did forget.....not on purpose though.

  6. I wonder if the U.S. would have fought in WWII if Pearl Harbor hadn't been bombed. Just thinking about it.

  7. i love your shadow. what a cool shot. ( :

    the sad thing is ... i remember that date now you mention it ...but the sad thing is ... no one said anything on the news about it. i wonder how it was missed?

  8. Fine post for Pearl Harbor Day
