Michelle epitomized the poem below. It is titled "Attitude Toward Death". Rather odd to me, since it speaks more to how one ought to live...


"Live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart.
Trouble no one about his religion.
Respect others in their views and demand that they respect yours.
Love your life, perfect your life and beautify all things in your life.
Seek to make your life long & of service to your people...

...Show respect to all, but grovel to none.
When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength.
Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living.
If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies within yourself...

...When your time comes to die, do not be like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death,
So that when their time comes, they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over a different way.
Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.

-Tecumseh


Goodbye, Michelle

Your pain will be over soon, and I believe with all my heart that when that happens, the next words you'll hear are "Well done, my good and faithful servant. Come into your rest."




EDIT: Michelle passed away peacefully and without pain very early Sunday morning (Father's Day), holding her father's hand, of all things & was surrounded by her family.

Sorry to hear that Mike.

I'm glad she is at peace.

I did a bit over 500 miles this past weekend, but didn't snap a single photo (cause I was droning down the Interstate for the most part)...hopefully taking the backroads toward Beaufort might help.


Thanks, everybody.

If I get a website going, I'm gonna have a section called "Reflections R Us" Or would that be "Reflections B Me"?







These last two are from Lake Marion last night...sun dancing across the dark water...was very cool. Looks almost like lava, I think.

I like where your "reflections" are leading you. Very artistic, good work!

And it would appear that today turned out to be nothing more than one big day of reflection... I wish some critters would show there faces for a change!!

REALLY like this one









I REALLY need to get downtown into old Charleston and shoot....

Ahem....allow me to introduce the Ole Girl

She still needs some odds and ends to finish her up completely, but this is how she looks!! I might take off the risers for the rear view mirrors, though.



Let's see:

Forks, brakes & rims from 2001 Suzuki Bandit 1200
Triples from '89 GSXR750 (top clamp is a Speigler unit with standard handlebars.)
Speigler stainless brake lines
Vance & Hines Street megaphone 4 into 1 (32lbs lighter than stock 4 into 2 double walled chromed steel exhaust))
Shorai LiFe battery (17lbs lighter than factory lead-acid battery)
Vintage Mikuni VM33 smoothbores (should be good for a few more ponies)

SO, She's substantially lighter than factory, with a bit more power & has markedly better suspension and brakes...the great thing is that it can all be converted back to stock in the matter of a couple hours. All these mods were straight bolt up. No mods to the frame.

Now a random rose shot after a rain storm:
