From Nadeeja about this image:
Knowing that this weekend was the Perseids peak, I headed out to Joshua Tree to view it. I knew the moon would be a huge factor in visibility, and so, I didn't plan on taking photos of the meteors. Not having an intervalometer, amongst other things, I wasn't well suited to attempt them anyways. I arrived at my location around 8:30 PM, and the sun had already set. With a nice dark window before the moon would begin rising, I started to take some photos of the Milky Way. I finished a few exposure for a stacked image, and then I begun doing some longer ones for the foreground.
It was at that moment my jaw had dropped. A huge meteor begun falling down, and it was happening very slowly. I was watching in awe. It descended from the sky so peacefully, catching fire at its final moments before vanishing. Out of sheer luck, my camera was pointed directly at it, and the shutter was open for the foreground long exposure. Once I finished the exposure, and saw this in on my screen, I was beyond stoked! Unplanned, and simply out of luck, I caught a beautiful meteor complimenting the Milky Way.

I could spend every second of every day for a thousand lifetimes in the moment that we shared together and still I would be begging the heavens for just a little more time. The gift of your presence has taught me one thing… That when it comes to you my love, forever will never be enough.
Sometimes, I have to let things implode in order to rebuild. How I fight it and hold on to it and search for the answers outside of myself though! It is quite exhausting. But I'm only human and usually these are resolved with external help that I avoid, people. Those I communicated with today indirectly helped me loosen my grip effortlessly. Thank you. 🙏✨❤️Or maybe it was just some hormonal shit. 😑💁🏻Either way, I'm grateful for once again feeling everything will be alright. 😊
Pamukkale, meaning "Cotton Castle" in Turkish, is a natural site in Denizli Province in southwestern Turkey. The city contains hot springs and travertines, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water. It is located in Turkey's Inner Aegean region, in the River Mendeles valley, which has a temperate climate for most of the year.
I was wandering in the rain
Mask of life, feelin' insane
Swift and sudden fall from grace
Sunny days seem far away
Kremlin's shadow belittlin' me
Stalin's tomb won't let me be
On and on and on it came
Wish the rain would just let me

Current situation inside my office (or what it feels like, anyway! 😜). This is the Knik Glacier in Alaska. Four years ago my pilot friend Jeremy promised to take me flying, and he came through with the goods while I was in the US this past June. Mind blown. 🤤
