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.

HOUSESITTING IN FREEDOM - DAY 7

... jon drove up from ohio today ... over almost 900 miles total, his first major league long-distance expedition ... i took route 25 over to vermont to meet up with him, then we negotiated routes 116 and 112, including the kancamagus highway, back to conway and freedom ...

... i stopped so that jon could go down the road aways, then turn around and come back up the hill for a nice shot with the mountains in the background ...



... and, of course, i made sure to take a portrait of the boy with his bike ...


... a great day to share a great ride ... next stop, the mount washington auto road ...
