Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

A conversation between my sister and diem3 had me remember the photos I snapped of my mother’s cross-stitch projects. I should clarify . . . in Part 1<<link, I identified her work as needlepoint, but it’s cross-stitch. I corrected that … Continue reading

A conversation between my sister and diem3 had me remember the photos I snapped of my mother’s needlepoint cross-stitch projects. I should clarify . . . photos of a small number of my mother’s needlepoint cross-stitch projects. So, here I … Continue reading
A few people (none I can think of, but it sounds better than saying “no one”) noticed my blogging absence. Well, I’ve suffered a digital loss. Sunday morning had me waking up to an unresponsive phone. Pretty much all morning … Continue reading
I subscribe to the Smithsonian’s newsletter. I should probably subscribe to their magazine but I don’t really need paper copies showing up where I live. Their short stories are generally enough and if I do chance on something that piques … Continue reading
A few hint if you are moving to Hawaii and planning on shipping a few things in boxes . . . First off, get heavy-duty boxes and heavy-duty shipping tape. Second, tape every seam and every edge. I think I … Continue reading
This is the third day of our one week without the Internet. It seemed as if it would be a breeze . . . But I’m here to tell you just how much the internet insinuated itself into our lives. … Continue reading
. . . not. A thing that bothers me – and I mean, really bothers me – is the propensity of people to assign meaning or intent to everyday events. Some will do it explicitly (“thank you, god, for this or … Continue reading
The condo complex we are in holds a special place in our memories . . . it was the first place we stayed at during our first visit to Hawaii. That was back in 1991. We were younger then, and … Continue reading
Another relatively quick update for them curious about what we are doing. So, yesterday’s post was a general announcement of our current location and associated intentions. It did show the beginning and end of Friday, the first full day we … Continue reading
I think by now most readers of this blog know we have sold our house. They may or may not know we sold most of our possessions (save a few boxes of stuff and four suitcases). What most don’t know … Continue reading
As much as we like being on the road, the one negative is a lack of proper internet connections. Also, not sleeping in our own bed. And, not having full access to foods we (me) are used to. Also, crappy … Continue reading
So, an eye doctor’s appointment offered respite from our busy moving preparations. One of the things I will miss once we move is the sight of Pikes Peak, visible from many sites around Colorado Springs and vicinity. All of the photos on … Continue reading
While my focus will likely be heavier on writing than on photography, photographs will always be a part of this blog because they are a part of my life. Looking at this year’s output, one might surmise that I’ve snapped … Continue reading
