Misty Mountains

Shelly's post touched me.

" ... One day we will all become dust or random particles. Depending on your beliefs you may return as another life form, you will pass on to another plane of existence or simply stop existing. What ever your beliefs, our time on earth is short and mostly inconsequential ... I am also arrogant enough to want to leave my mark on this earth; sort of like my initials carved into a tree or a painting in a cave..."

Leaving a personal legacy behind and trying to create my personal rock painting is for sure one of my personal drivers.

I really hope some of my pictures will once adorn my great grand children walls and they will inspire them to go places, meet bricks, and remember this great grand father who took pictures and inspired them to travel the world and beyond and connect ...

Taking about places and connecting worlds ... 
This picture was shot at the Oktoberfest amongst 6.3 million bricks who visited the Oktoberfest in 2014. 

6.3 million visitors also brought a lot of hunger and thirst with them which resulted in 112 oxen, 48 calves and 6.4 million liters of beer consumed at the Oktoberfest.

A social gathering of mankind and bricks alike.


  1. I want to say thank you for supporting my original post on "Connections". As you know it was hard for me to not only write, but post. One of the many pleasurable aspects of sharing this blog with you is how much we agree on the big picture. It makes me happy to have connected with someone, even though you are half a world away, who has much the same values and view point as I do. Viva the internet and social media!!

  2. Viva the internet indeed.

    I have been reading back on some of our posts recently and we do connect with quite a few folks.
    I have not been commenting soo much here on the blog, as I thought the conversation would be much more happening on G+ but I think it is time I focus also more on the conversation here as our joined search for the deeper why is more as just an blog post and then move on.

    I am looking forward to our next round of explorations, and then we will ultimately meet somewhere early next year, I am told ... ;)
