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 girls and i had our christmas today ... as you can see, it's rather obvious that as usual i got the absolute best presents ... roger happened to stop by for a visit and he graciously served shutter clicking duty so that after i took this picture he could snap one of the three of us (next entry) ... after that, it was on to baked chicken, gummy rice, sweet corn, homemade rolls, and, of course, ben & jerry's, along with a couple of good movies ... as a wise ol' latin guy said a long, long time ago, "a perfect day is made in perfect company" ...
