In the grand scale of things...


Our time here is brief.
Often we lose sight of the moment.

Testing Triggit for KEP!

Anonymous said...

I don't know what a Triggit is or KEP but I like this post ... very dry! Wonderful film :)

A Kite Rises said...

What a powerful film and perfectly placed between two such atmospheric landscapes. I also confess to not knowing what a triggit is or a kep either, but no matter, I love what you are doing ; )

Andrea said...

These are lovely! That bottom one in particular is amazing, where is that?

simon said...

brief? you bet! live each day as your last... :o)

Triggit meant nothing to me, but I clicked on Kep in the side bar and all was clear!
Lovely film;I like the "smudge-y" look to it.

LDahl said...

Hi guys! Triggit is a service that allows you to quickly add content to your published blog. Kep! is a friend of mine, his brother is the CEO of Triggit and Kep! is doing coding and artwork for it.I think...hehhe... it is something he's been writing about for along time but it has been their 'big secret', so when he asked for alpha testers...we really didn't know what we were doing, or what it did for that matter. It's not perfect yet but what it does it does well and is pretty fun to use.
Hope you all are fine.

My sister and I have been having fun making jewelry.

These are beautiful images, and I just love the video.

LDahl said...

The one on the bottom is my favorite- it looks like the little rock is trying to crawl away, and the big rock is poised to strike.

L, I read this post when I was in Marrakech last week, and I thought I had left a comment...
The sun must've got to me.
Can't wait to see Triggit at work.

Brief but oh so special, thanks to people like you who remind us lest we forget. x

Christine Lim Simpson said...

I know what you mean.

How are things with you and your family?

homo escapeons said...

I can't imagine how much worse it would be if humans lived any longer than they do?

Finally in the 21st Century we are acknowledging that the Climate shifts and that nothing down here is permanent.

Gazing at the scenery is essential for our glorified little egos because we need to constantly remind ourselves that the 3rd rock from the Sun wasn't created for US.

We're the 'new' kids on the block.

Guyana-Gyal said...

And we should try to make it as beautiful as possible.

LDahl said...

Merlinprincesse, I know what you mean...sniff!

Tony,The Snake rock strikes again!! Slowly:)))

Cream,that happens to me too. At your blog there has been a time or two I wondered if I offended. Then I wondered how I goofed, because sometimes it doesn't register when I thought it did. Anyway, my gosh you make a missed post sound oh so exotic!!!

Zooms, you are waaay too kind:) Hey thanks*blush*

Christine, we are doing better... still hanging in there at least! I know it will take awhile to recover completely, so I just take it one day at a time and tackle problems as they arise. Hope your parents are doing better now.

Homo escapeons, maybe if they lived longer they would get smarter or more mature...they might take better care about living as they would have more to give up(in years) and they might be around longer to live with the consequences of good living or bad living.

~~~Gazing at the scenery is essential for our glorified little egos because we need to constantly remind ourselves that the 3rd rock from the Sun wasn't created for US.~~~

But it was, just as much as all the other living things...remember, for better or worse, we too are a part of nature. Humans right or wrong, are just humans, and do as humans do... just as rattle snakes or termites do:))))

~~~We're the 'new' kids on the block.~~~Ah cheer up, we might not burn down the house...just yet:)))

Guyana-Gyal, people like you do!

LDahl said...

Hi Merisi,I'm doing ok, I've just been on dial-up this month. I've been so spoiled by T1 cable that I can't hardly function now:)))
It takes forever to do anything!!!

OH DEAR! Know how you feel hehheheee. Pleased otherwise okay :)

LDahl said...

Hey Nonii... Yep, oldest son is moving in with his new love and her darling children; they are all so happy as a new family, I can't feel too bad he took the T1 with him. I can say I don't think I've ever seen my son so much in love, I love it and it scares me at the same time.
Meanwhile back at the ranch...this fun year is still dishing it out...we're right in the middle of another ice storm....five o'clock this morning all you could hear was the sloppy freezing rain, a train whistle in the distance and the steady crunch-crash of breaking branches and falling trees. The power was out most of the night but it is one now, flickering, but on. Bless KP&L!!(Kansas Power and Lights) My big pine has branches laying down in the grass, I went out and trimmed some of them to take the weight off a bit... hope it makes it through the day.
So, how's your summer going? :)

Anonymous said...

The weather here is changing every five minutes, thunderstorms then sunshine. It's supposed to be like that in Summer, just a lot slower paced :) Not too hot yet and no great fires as yet, but plenty of tree branches tossed about!

LDahl said...

That is normal for Kansas... throw in some hail and a tornado or two, sounds just like home to me:)))
My youngest son finally got me out today, his car is heavy enough to break through the snow. He got stuck once and had to make a second try but he got the drive opened. Both of his cars were damaged when a branch fell on them from the ice storm. This poor town looks like a bomb hit it!Smashed cars, houses and trees. The big pine that my #1 son and I were trying to save made it 80%. The ice was just too heavy for some of the middle branches, but after seeing what so many of the trees suffered, it got off pretty durn good. My oldest had just left here when the youngest called and told me to get a hold of his brother as he needed him to help get the cars moved... long story short, a huge branch came down while they were moving the cars and just about got the oldest. Then we had the blizzard... too much fun...this year has been a trip. I'm almost afraid of what next year will bring!!!
I haven't even mentioned the baby getting his hand stuck in the paper shredder at my daughter-in-law's grand parents house... not even two, and his poor little fingers torn up so bad:( He took his own stitches out a couple of days after they took the cast off. Tough little bugger.
