I live in a Redneck part of Florida. Don't like the culture, or the people. I live here because the beach is the best I've ever seen. Emerald water and fine sand. There is an incredible luminosity in this part of the Gulf Coast.
The redneck riviera! :tongue:

Do you have white sand over there? I visited Clearwater once and saw some nice looking white sand.

The sand is white in the light of day At night, it is black.
Everything is determined by perspective, of course.

Zom: A Stieglitz influence there, with the feel of Paul Strand. I like it.

How do I post pictures from my computer? I was going to post a few but copy/paste isn't working.
Therein what are 'six (types of) disrespect'? One dwells without respect, without deference for the Teacher; one dwells without respect, without deference for the Teaching; one dwells without respect, without deference for the Order; one dwells without respect, without deference for the precepts; one dwells without respect, without deference for heedfulness; one dwells without respect, without deference for hospitality. These are six (types of) disrespect.

He is impeccable in conduct and understanding, the Serene One, the Knower of the Worlds;
He trains perfectly those who wish to be trained; he is Teacher of gods and men; he is Awake and Holy. "

Apparent here and now, timeless, encouraging investigation,
Leading to liberation, to be experienced individually by the wise. "

Yeah, unless you get eaten by a Lion. Who is this guy? And why does he think it is a good idea to hug a Lion?
Lions don't give a Damn about your compassion. They will eat you.

Kevin Richardson, the famous lion man, conservationist, protector of wildlife. He plays football with lions. I think animals are more friendly than humans.
