Tarmac ribbons criss-crossing the landscape, dusty back roads twisting between the cool shadows of ancient pines, and less traveled pathways connecting present to past, all I wander, seeking, seeing, with my keyboard and camera capturing scenes and stories to share with you.

Now in its seventh year, this venue has become an important part of my life, a place where I can express my thoughts and feelings about the things I see and do, hoping the process brings me a bit closer to friends and family who enjoy sharing my sometimes chaotic and often nonlinear observations and ideas. A journal, I suppose, but one with which I find pleasure in thinking others are alongside me on my journey.

... a nice way to beat the heat, i went for a little ride along the west river road ... when i got to sydney i headed west towards oakland, stopping to snap a picture of this exploding thunderhead ... i'm always fascinated when i notice that as i'm standing in the early evening a distant cloud or mountain top is still bathed in daylight ...
