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.

THE CANDY JAR


"Neither the things we walk towards,
nor those from which we walk away,
but in that which we pass by
is where regret takes seed."

FREDERICK BROWN

... perhaps just an exercise in tone and contrast, perhaps more, this is one of those "walking out the door" situations ... sea and shore, heaven and horizon, field and fans, doorways, windows, often it is these transitions which provide opportunity to find contrast between motion and motionless, light and dark, goings and comings ...
