Last night, May 6, 2018, while watching United Shades of America, catching an interesting and informative episode focusing on Sikhism, seeing my first Californian Sikh almond farmer, and being intrigued by the turban (click here to view a gallery from the show), I sketched the following image on my iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil, using Sketch Club and iColorama:

I’m just going to say it. These folks are deep-down frightened. They see what’s unfolding, and no matter how hard they slam on the brakes, there’s no stopping the inevitable demographic and economic changes and the corresponding cultural diversification and darkening of our collective pigmentation. Right now all they can do is wall themselves off economically, skim off as much as possible for themselves, take refuge in their own amnesia, and throw it in reverse.

One of my favorite quotes:
We have two lives – the one we learn with and the life we live after that.

I was stationed at Aces & Kings Cheesesteak last Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018. While I was there, I was playing around demo-ing in Sketch Club on my iPad Pro with my Apple Pencil.
Several times a day I see that Water Tower Down There Again and again. It’s the same water tower I’ve rendered over and over, please click here to see the other renderings. I usually see it while I’m walking Cowboy, and since it’s located between us and the sunrise to the east, the views are generally more dramatic on our morning walks. I cherish that water tower in ways that encapsulate and set me free.
