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.

... springtime in the valley, but, as is usual, mt. washington will wait a another month or more before it grudgingly begins to let go its hold on winter ... even then, as late as mid-july there'll still be a dedicated few nutsoid enough to hike to the top of tuckerman's ravine and strap on their sticks for one last death defying downhill descent between the rocks and boulders ...

OLYMPUS E-P1 PROJECT
