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.

... my friend, roger, who is "one of those iron-butt guys," has decided he's going to turn his honda 250cc motocross motorcycle into a machine for cruising in-state along minor highways and undeveloped roads ... today i shot the "before" pictures for him ... his plans are to add a larger gas tank, install a more comfortable seat, attach side and top racks for tail bags, add heated handgrips, add a windscreen and change the lighting to l.e.d. bulbs ... he did almost three-hundred miles this afternoon, his comment being, "ouch, i need to put on the new seat before i get too serious" ...

... i snapped a shot of him as was motoring away ...
