Always ethereal, always eclectic, I write as the mood strikes, when there intrigue reveals itself. Usually that means something controversial or adventure of some sort.

I've tried really hard to be unprovocative, but have as yet been unsuccessful.

Sights and Sounds of Surf City

Oil rigs off the coast.

Surf City looks and sounds relaxing.

Were there any camels or sandpeople?

No, sadly, no camels this side of the pond. The only ones were imported to help the military navigate the Southwestern deserts in America in the early 1860s, and they were instructed by Hi Jolly (Hajj Ali) from the Middle East. But the venture didn't work out, and the camels were all released. But there are still rumors on occasion of someone running into a camel from that herd, roaming freely through the Southwestern deserts.
