In the winter of 1985 I was driving through the Mojave Desert with a friend, talking about our apparent need for new river gear. As we passed the Twenty Nine Palms Marine Base, a man unexpectedly appeared on the side of the road selling used ammo cans. My friend and I laughed wildly and quickly came to realize that the moment was "All In A Days' Karma". This blog contains the occasional ramblings of a died-in-the-wool westerner who loves seeing, understanding, and being alive upon these landscapes. I cherish the moments of bliss and irony that come to all of us as we explore the planet and its residents (and perhaps visitors) in the short time we are here.

The Arrival of the Yankee Invasion in Cuba

Thanks to my sister Laura for this gem of a photo! Air Force 1 arriving in Havana Cuba on March 20, 2016. It's about time that the incredibly stupid policy of ignoring Cuba comes to an end. One wonders if this could be viewed as "Bay of Pigs Invasion II" carrying Yankee capitalism once again to the island. Remember, Fidel's Revolution was a reaction to the Bautista puppet regime of the 1950's. Cycles.
