For my second installment of “Interesting, but Insignificant Information” I offer the following true story:

To make things easier while mixing the American Graffiti sound track, George Lucas and sound designer Walter Murch labeled all of the reels of film R and all of the dialogue tracks D, and then numbered each of them sequentially, starting with the number 1.  When Murch later asked Lucas for Reel 2, Dialogue 2 – or more precisely, R2 D2 – Lucas liked the way it sounded so much that he made a note of the name for another project he was writing at the time.

I thought I would share another capture from my latest visit to the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve in Huntington Beach, California.  Yes, I do believe it could be Pete!

Thanks for stopping by.  I’m feeling a little better, but still recovering.  Thank you for all your well-wishes!

Dreams are like microvacations, whether in sleep or daydreaming.

Some make sense of our daily lives, some are extensions of our hopes.

They remove our barriers.  They open possibilities.
