Welcome To Under the Jacaranda Tree

Every year San Diego enjoys an inspiringly violent blue-purple assault on our skyline.  Throughout the city, these grey-barked, normally demure Jacaranda trees explode into the most vivid color canopies that can magically change one’s perspective if you look into the skies below their boughs.  Try it and maybe you will see things a bit differently.  I did.

Lately, I find myself doing a lot of different stuff and wanted to have a place where I could share it with others without having to be too specific about it.  I thought that if I put it all up here it would be easier to avoid causing any real damage.  I will try to make each visit to the site fun. I hope somehow it might inspire us all to try, succeed or fail, share, repeat, and improve.

I also thought it might be nice to be able to take a cyber look back over time and see the tracks we have left on this strange virtual beach we call life and time.

Anyway, that’s the deal….Look around, get comfortable, pull up a smile, and set a spell. I am so glad that you came! Please enjoy the Shade of the Jacaranda Tree as long as you like..,, James.
