        Yeah, if it would only get here already! It's been unseasonably cold and wet here in Southern California - it ought to be at least starting to warm up a wee bit already!

          Excited about arriving at Ramey Airport in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico @ Midnight next month.
          Getting my rental car, driving 25 minutes to my place in Rincón.

          Hearing the gravel crunch of my driveway under the wheels.
          Open the door and smell the tropical mustiness..flick the light switch and hopefully see nothing on the floor running for cover.
          Immediately open the louvered windows and feel the fresh tropical breeze blow out the mustiness.
          Open the slider to the Lanai and hear the waves lap or crash on the shoreline and the Coqui frogs with their repetitive singing.
          There is guaranteed to be at least one dead Gecko on the Lanai being devoured by a swarm of Cane Ants.
          I'll do a 'walk through' of the rooms to see if everything is kopecetic.
          Maybe catch a few Zs until the sun comes up, then mosey out the the bakery and grab a stick of freshly made bread...gotta get there early, the locals get up real early to beat the heat.

          Then grab a dozen fresh eggs, milk, a papaya, a six pack of Medallia beer, and a bag of Pico coffee at the small grocery store.
          Make the coffee, 1/2 black coffee 1/2 scalded milk.

          I sit on the lanai, drink the coffee, eat my egg sandwich, feeling the warm yolk run down my hand, stick my spoon into the halved papaya, and savor the sweet and perfumy pulp in my boca as the sun warms my back...

          The perfect beginning of a perfect day on 'the corner' ( Rincón means Corner)

          Puerto Rico me Encanta.

            I'm excited by my rapidly developing plan to stowaway in Luke's baggage...

              Phil, after I assess the huracán damage quotient ( my Father -in Law who retired to PR says it it not particularly bad, he lives in Ponce and checks on the place) and get things in order, you wouldn't have to stowaway in my luggage...

              I will give you a heads up as to when I am there in the future...just buy a ticket, I will pick you and a guest up at Ramey or SJU airport...
              Bring a hat to cover up that bald cabeza of yours, or I can hook you hook with a Jíbaro Pava ..https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pava_(Puerto_Rico)
              I think you might want to hang out a bit after you get here...the food, the music, the lovely women...¡ay bendito! 😎

                It's about the relationship of consciousness to quantum field theory.
                There is a definite link: Some things in quantum physics only occur if observed.
                I considered it an hour very well spent.

                  Our recent vacation to Hawaii (Oʻahu and Hawai'i) was interesting, educational and a fun adventure. It was also exciting because it put me in my 49th state and with a plan to ride the Harley to Alaska in three years or less I'll get all 50!

                    I'll definitely give this a watch this evening - thanks for the link!

                      A summer putt through Alaska sounds like a great time!

                        I'm quite fortunate in that my wife is all in on these adventures, we have a ride to Key West planned for this September.

                          I've been down A1A - it's a beautiful trip. Keep the rubber side down and have a great time!

                            A couple of things I'm excited about...

                            1) I finally made the leap to Logic Pro X today... after years of sitting on the fence between Digital Performer and Ableton Live... I`ll most likely continue to use DP so I can collaborate and use Live as well to create sounds but honestly, neither DAW felt natural and that's after 17 years with DP.

                            2) I did my first cue for a short film. What a blast! I have not felt this excited to make music since... I cannot remember.

                            3) My studio is finally fully operational since 2012... It took some time to decide on where I wanted to go because my interests have expanded so much. I was looking to consolidate but I also wanted to be able to service a band if need be so I recently upgraded my interface to the Apollo 8p. Its just nice to have everything plugged in where it needs to be so I can just work without interruption.

                              Lol....While I understand what you're saying, consider this...If drugs (In particular LSD) had never gotten traction, would movie magic evolved at the pace that gave us Doc Strange? All the expansive thinking involved in movie making from then to now...A lot of it informed and even inspired by that era and the vast, earthshaking changes in music and culture...A great deal of it by people that had taken acid....At least the ones that didn't take so much of it..

                              Our generation...Your's and mine...Put the weird in a lot of stuff.....I only took acid 3 times...It changed the way I think...

                              Another question...Why are the Marvel movies so much better than the DC Movies? I was into DC way before Marvel when I was a kid. DC, I suppose, was a lot more of what was perceived at the time as wholesome. An Alien with a good heart and superpowers. A rich kid with cool toys and a good heart. A good kid, transformed by an accident that could run like really fast. A stone fox from a society with nothing but women. Strong kick your butt women.

                              Marvel was the address of the weird and dark. The real freaks. The realm of Gods and Sorcerers...Of Spiders and Lab created Giants, filled with rage.

                              The Batman movies with Christian Bale in the title role were the best DC movies to that date. The next glimmer of hope was Man of Steel...Superman.....with issues...And DC went truly dark with the squeakiest clean character they ever created with Batman vs Superman...Superman with even more issues...and a really nasty side...... Wonder Woman was, I believe, a triumph. Gal Godot is an amazing, charismatic presence and actress and Chris pine did great work kind of standing back and letting her shine on through. The cinematic quality of the movie was stellar as well. With "Justice League" , while there were missteps, critics be damned, I loved it. The Hippie Aquaman was a cool and unexpected pleasure. Affleck was better as Batman, while not even getting close to Bale in execution. The nerdy Flash was also an unexpected pleasure and surprise.

                              Still...Overall...The DC movies just don't seem to reach the heights of the Marvel ones. Thor/Ragnarok was so completely entertaining...Everything you want from a Superhero movie insofar as action, and comic relief throughout...A triumph.

                              I'm just excited about film these days...........Period.
