New screens! So pleased there is again a theater that doesn't require travel to the wasteland of Route 29.

The Violet Crown Cinema is open, 200 West Main Street, Charlottesville VA. In one year they built something beautiful, well made.

West on Main

As much as the electorate likes to make fun of Mr. Trump, hey, he is the candidate who brought bicycle racing to Charlottesville.

The year, 1989. We were taking pictures with film and United Press International (UPI) covered the story.

dogs walking their people

A dog will walk. No one complaining presently about the weather being hot and dry. This is a portion of the trail that circles Charlottesville.

The Cloud of Unknowing

these band members gave the band name as "The Cloud of Unknowing"

The Cloud of Unknowing counsels a young student to seek God, not through knowledge and intellection (faculty of the human mind), but through intense contemplation, motivated by love, and stripped of all thought. This is brought about by putting all thoughts and desires under a “cloud of forgetting”, and thereby piercing God’s cloud of unknowing with a “dart of longing love” from the heart. This form of contemplation is not directed by the intellect, but involves spiritual union with God through the heart:–Wikipedia

extensive natural trail system, along with healthy rivers and streams. We have clean air and water, we emphasize recycling and reuse, and we
minimize storm‐water runoff. Our homes and buildings are sustainably designed and energy efficient.
