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 fifth 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.

CAPE FLATTERY REDUX

... cleaning my laptop's desktop i came across a few images i'd kept for further consideration ... in mind lessons from chad, a master of poster making, i decided to work up one of my own ...


... as i was packing up my tripod and checking my camera bag to make sure i hadn't left a lens behind, i took a last look at these magical headlands ...

... i was tired, it was getting dark, i knew that the three-quarter mile trek back to the trailhead was going to be uphill and slippery in the mist, yet still i didn't want to leave ...

... i turned and looked back ... ever so softly the fog whispered to me, "you needn't see—go, take me with you" ...

... i walked away, behind me the world disappeared ...

... looking up, i envied the trees ...

No matter how hard I try to forget you,
you always come back to my thoughts.
When you hear me singing
I am really crying for you.
