THANKFULLY! there seem to be ‘a few of you’ following along here who actually prefer reading written posts as opposed to viewing strictly photos. I base this on the fact that a few of you voiced this preference to me when I was posting photos here and posting written thoughts over at Baba Kaps Doxology (babakaps.net) my other web site. As in .. “Cap, actually I am reading your writings at Baba Kaps Doxology and not looking at all the photos you are posting at Bobba Caps Dolology.”At the Royal Oak library this afternoon I MUST try to find a copy of Julia Cameron’s book .. ‘The Right To Write’ .. so I can accurately quote her when she states .. “It is the ACT OF WRITING that calls forth ideas and not sitting around idly wondering what you are going to write.”
What you have just read above IS NOT WHAT I INTENDED TO WRITE when I sat down here at 8AM Eastern Standard Time in the City of Royal Oak in the State of Michigan in the United States of America.
It seems to be a ‘Truth Of My Writing Universe’ that the instant I put pen-to-paper or fingers-to-keyboard I seem to no longer be in-charge of what results therefrom! And I have personally witnessed this-exact-same-phenomenon in countless others who ‘write inventory’. They think they are going to write about one specific line of resentments and fears and a completely different line of resentments and fears comes forth from their pen!I RESENT THIS DRATTED ‘CTRL’ KEY ON THE LOWER LEFT OF MY KEYBOARD! I REACH TO HIT ‘SHIFT’ AND I HIT ‘CNTRL’ AND I LOSE EVERYTHING! I FEAR THAT I JUST LOST THE TOTAL WRITING I JUST BEGAN!
OK LET ME TALK ABOUT PHOTOS!Back last November or early December I found out Google has put a limit on the amount of storage I can 'have-for-free’ here on Blogspsot. Or at least Google has put a limit on my photo-storage-capacity. OK I ‘agreed’ to pay them something like three dollars-a-month (NO GOING BACK they advised me!) for my existing photo capacity. I then tried to post a photo and got the same message that I have exceeded my photo-storage-capacity despite the fact that a few minutes earlier I had agreed to pay $3 a month!
So I sit S T U C K !
Rather than jump to six dollars-a-month (or even more) forever .. and risk being told that still is not enough money and I can’t go back .. I have stopped posting photos here.
This morning I just tried the following. I went back to FWIW 179 dated February 26, 2012, and tried to ‘revert to draft’ that writing and then ‘publish it’ hoping that the entire writing .. FWIW 179 of February 26, 2012 .. would appear-here-and-now on January 15th 2013. Photos and all.NO LUCK. It just re-posted back-in-place new changes and all. So I am TOTALLY UNABLE to move-around-photos already posted. Google just won’t let me re-use existing photos.
Now I am thinking that I will turn Baba Kaps Doxology into a photo web site and keep Bobba Caps Doxology a text web site.
OR! Set up another Google Blogspot web site calling it Bobba Caps Photos or some such.
NOW TO WRITE WHAT I SET ABOUT TO WRITE WHEN I BEGAN !
Thank you so much Julia Cameron !
"What did you say Oh God of Abraham?" .. "You have given me enough money to pay Google one-hundred-dollars a month for photo storage!" .. "But you don't understand Oh God of Abraham!" .. "No yeah buts you say!"

THE JIGSAW PUZZLE .. PART II
Two posts ago .. Friday the 4th of January 2013 .. I began writing about the JIGSAW PUZZLE that a major trip out-of-the-country turns out to be for me .. I can’t speak for you!
THE JIGSAW PUZZLE now stands at about 80% complete.
I have now completed the first-round-of-mail to those friends abroad who I will see or who follow me closely here. Post Cards only because envelope mail will often be stolen and opened in the vain attempt to find money some people are stupid enough to actually send abroad! All mailed together in one batch of mail so IF someone tells me they received their card I will assume the others also received theirs.
Raj in Herbertpur in Dehradun 248 142 has confirmed by e-mail he received his card. THANK YOU RAJ !
I am busy wrapping-up a lot of odds-and-ends here that I want finished before I leave .. lists of what I need abroad .. visiting friends I want to be sure to see before I leave .. I have already made two trips to Toledo, Ohio, to see Mel and Lori and will make a third trip next Monday. And more much more I will not go into here.
Ask me .. “Cap can you believe you are about to make your tenth (10th) trip to India?” .. “No I can not!”
Thank you Oh God of Abraham for my many blessings!
Over and Out for now .. Cap ..
