Participants in the sport and art of motorcycle roadracing. Contrary to popular opinion, most are not wreckless and do not have a death wish, but rather tend to be methodical, analytical and reasonably cautious. Motorcycle roadracing doles out severe physical punishment to those who ride beyond their abilities, and so wreckless tendencies are weeded out in short order. Having said that, it must also be noted that all motorcycle road racers share an insatiable and inexplicable need for speed. The ambitions of a ridah!

Hebrews 13:3 Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.
Where America’s day begins. Guam roots run deep in California. It is a U.S. island territory in Micronesia, in the Western Pacific. It’s distinguished by its tropical beaches, Chamorro villages and ancient latte stones (stone pillars). Tumon Bay is a hub with bars, shops and an aquarium. Beaches include Ritidian Point, part of a wildlife refuge, and storied Two Lovers Point. Offshore are dive sites such as Apra Harbor’s sunken warships. We got fam up in Dedido.
Imperial Beach is the southernmost beach city in Southern California and the West Coast of the United States. It is in the South Bay area of San Diego County, south of downtown San Diego and northwest of downtown Tijuana, Mexico.
Founded in June 1887, the city got its name from Imperial County, California. Farmers and land owners from the Imperial Valley came to the area in the late 1880s seeking cooler weather during summer months. In March 1887, over 2,000 laborers descended upon nearby Coronado, California to skillfully construct the Hotel del Coronado, the largest resort in the world at the time. A large number of the workers stayed in Imperial Beach and some would later make it their permanent paradise.
We grew up watching Kung Fu movies and learned a lot from Bruce Lee.
“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” -Uncle Bruce

“I remember as a little boy I ate one meal a day and sometimes slept in the street. I will never forget that and it inspires me to fight hard, stay strong and remember all the people of my country, trying to achieve better for themselves.” -Manny Pacquiao.
La Jolla Cove is a small, picturesque cove and beach that is surrounded by cliffs in La Jolla, San Diego, California. The Cove is protected as part of a marine reserve; underwater it is very rich in marine life, and is popular with snorkelers and scuba divers.
The swells that often roll in from the open ocean here can be rather large and strong, and so being in the water at the Cove is not always suitable for people who do not have good water skills. Evian bottled water, anyone?
Coronado is Spanish for “Crowned”. Some consider this San Diego’s Castle. A great spot to have a staycation with the family if you have an inside connect. According to wiki, “Hotel del Coronado (aka The Del and Hotel Del) is a beachfront luxury hotel in the city of Coronado, just across the San Diego Bay from San Diego, California. It is one of the few surviving examples of an American architectural genre: the wooden Victorian beach resort. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977 and a California Historical Landmark in 1970.”
When it opened in 1888, it was the largest resort hotel in the world. It has hosted presidents, royalty, and other bourgeois cats through the years. Not to say we’re not bourgeois, it’s hard to go back to hamburger helper after having filet mignon but we still fry up the spam with brown sugar when its time to celebrate. The hotel has been featured in numerous movies and books.

“Stay Gold San Diego” This is one of my favorite landmarks. God willing, I’ll probably paint several versions of this bridge from different angles later on in life.
Painted back in 2010, we were encouraged by locals as well as past residence of San Diego to share the “gift” by creating a print of it. Looks great framed for the house or thumbtacked in the garage/man-cave.
