Dust if You Must

by Rose Milligan

Dust if you must, but wouldn’t it be better
To paint a picture, or write a letter,
Bake a cake, or plant a seed;
Ponder the difference between want and need?

Dust if you must, but there’s not much time,
With rivers to swim, and mountains to climb;
Music to hear, and books to read;
Friends to cherish, and life to lead.

Dust if you must, but the world’s out there
With the sun in your eyes, and the wind in your hair;
A flutter of snow, a shower of rain,
This day will not come around again.

Dust if you must, but bear in mind,
Old age will come and it’s not kind.
And when you go (and go you must)
You, yourself, will make more dust.

Getting to Know You

No idea why I started to watch it. Saw The Saint in my suggestion list but it was not free and this just happened to be one of the next ones. The short description was somewhat interesting:

When his drunken ex-girlfriend won’t leave him alone, a man asks a married woman staying at the same hotel to pretend to be his . . .

Very cheesy, but I don’t think they were trying to avoid that. If you can look past the cheesy, it is pretty well made. Definitely enjoyed watching – around midnight.

Iguana Grill

I’ve only been here a couple of times and don’t really recall the food experience. But the few times I was there, I wondered why I didn’t go there more often. Specially when the other option was so crowded + over hyped.

Anyway, I have known for a while now that the place had most likely closed. But had only the other day found out that the closure happened back in October 2016. At least that’s when the austin360 article was posted.

Leica TL2

I recently rented a TL2 with a 60mm f/2.8 and another 23mm f/2. This is my very first time using a Leica, so it took a while getting used to some of the very basics – like putting the lenses on and taking them off.
The TL2 is also completely controlled from the display and it doesn’t even have a view finder, that also made things a bit challenging.

Once I was able to get used to the “uniqueness”, it was quite fun to shoot. The 60mm was quite “slow”, but quality was V-E-R-Y good.
