I grew up in the South, no, in the Deeeeeep South. I was born and raised in the panhandle of Florida, or lower Alabama, as it is still often called. “My people” lived in the Deep South, literally for generations.

When we travel to a new city, we just walk, walk, walk. We walk everywhere. Such was the case when we arrived in Dublin, Ireland. Ah! I loved Ireland! Our walkabout took us unexpectedly to the campus of Trinity College which was established in 1592.
These are just two of the photos I shot while we were briefly on the… Continue reading
I have finally returned to Atlanta after visiting our apartment in San Fransisco for almost 2 months. I’m astonished at the heat and humidity of Atlanta, even though I have previously experienced it for years and years.

But now that we have our presumptive candidates, I want to weigh in on politics for just a bit: long enough to make my endorsement. After this, I will attempt to remain silent on the election. If you can’t indulge me my whim, you… Continue reading
