MLK day, and building a bridge to communicate….

I read a comment to my post on Facebook that reminded me of a better way to communicate. Private messages sent directly to the person is the best way to complain! A much more positive way to communicate overall. Today is a US Holiday. It is the day we remember the life of a human […] More

Wander project what my father saw 12

My father’s pictures this time Indiana 14 was the folder name. First off, I don’t have 14 folders called Indiana. I have three, 13, 14 and scene 4. It makes me wonder what happened to the others. Dad stored slides in one of three modes. He stored in the carousel used with the projector. He […] More

Back then you had your forum on a single BBS, and that BBS would replicate with the other bulletin board services. The Bitnet system moved data around the world pre-internet. The […] More

Sliding up and down like a child’s toy marble track up and down seeking the lull that is the bottom. I smell the ozone swirling around […] More

the orb chasing the sky

on the edge of the horizon holding on to the top of the sky as though letting go would tumble falling until something solid impeded its fall and crushing fingers and toes. Orb on the edge of the horizon seeing all hearing  nothing as it hangs fingers tense to the edge of the sky. Rising […] More

wander project through my father's eyes 10

In the pictures that my father left I can still see through my father’s eyes. The pictures shared today more of his Wildflowers collection. My favorite memory of my dad outdoors comes from a family trip to Colorado. It was my dad’s dream vacation, staying in a cabin and lots of hiking. We were on […] More
