San Francisco or Bust

At the beginning of the month, we headed out to San Francisco for a symphony concert (March 4th). I was especially looking forward to this concert, conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas. I didn’t know that he would be presented with a recognition from the symphony: This was his 1,500th program at the symphony. His first was in 1974! Additionally, I… Continue reading

Ok. Time Out Is Now Over

You can come out and play with the big boys again as long as you promise to play nice! From time to time on my blog I have blathered on about the racism, homophobia, and blatant misogyny found at Bob Jones “University.” But foolish me: You don’t shame religious bigots and hypocrites. They proudly wear the derision of the sane… Continue reading

A Personal Problem

I suspect that most people have to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom—at least on occasion. Granted, this is not something we talk about in polite conversation. However, it’s one of the more basic characteristics of the human experience. But I suffer from a unique personal problem. I fall asleep easily, very easily—often… Continue reading

Anxiety Medication

I have found the past several elections very, very stressful. (The change process is excruciatingly slow.) This election cycle is the worst of them all! My anxiety level has been through the roof. I’m already sweating, breathing heavily, and pacing the house! As a result, I will up my anxiety medication dosing on Tuesday, the day the election results begin… Continue reading

Please Stand By

This is a public service announcement. As you can see, the visual styling of my blog is a train wreck. I’ve decided to stop paying what I consider extortion1 to WooThemes for the blog theme I’ve been using for years. As a result, with the latest update of WordPress, my blog has crashed and burned visually. I could pay Woo… Continue reading

Farber Art Installation

I went out and shot several photos of the San Fransisco street cars, had them printed as C prints at Dickerman Prints1. They were mounted  (aluminum back with plexiglass front) by General Graphics. I hate hanging things on the wall. I measure a dozen times and still end up with things not perfectly aligned. Plus, I didn’t want to get… Continue reading

You Made It An Awesome Open House!

On April 17th, Steve and I had a thrilling afternoon welcoming everyone into our home, people we hadn’t seen in a long time (in some cases for decades), and others we were meeting for the very first time! I have to confess, we were a bit worried that 170 people said they were coming to the Open House. We were … Continue reading

Continuing the Exploration

In my previous post, Exploring the Backside of the Tracks, I talked about my finding a specific photo location near some Atlanta westside railroad tracks. In this post, I want to talk about what’s by those tracks: The Goat Farm Arts Center. What a very cool place to discover! The area consists of several buildings built back in the 1800’s.… Continue reading
