Unless you’ve been hiding in a closet, or are shunning news, you’ve heard Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, Speaker of the House, is retiring. I’ve been wondering what that might mean for the Republicans and Democrats. I may be a liberal Democrat, but I do often admire how Republicans stay on message—right or wrong—and repeat it as… Continue reading Paul Ryan Retiring: What Might It Mean
While driving and walking around our neighborhood, I noticed Spring is in the air. The temperature is rising, the wind is blowing and flowers are blooming like crazy. This morning I decided to get up and go take pictures during what would hopefully be the Golden Hour of photography. This is the time when the… Continue reading Golden Hour Photo Walk
Richard and I went to see Love, Simon last night. We both enjoyed it. I’ve decided I loved it and highly recommend it to everyone. I’d almost go to say it should be shown to all high school students as it captures the high school life and angst pretty well. The movie has love, drama,… Continue reading “Love, Simon” is to be Loved
As many of you have read, while in New York, I conducted walkabouts. I’d get up fairly early, make myself presentable, then take my camera out for a walk around Manhattan before breakfast. It was a way to get some new perspectives, not only with my camera, but in my mind as well. The walks… Continue reading Walkabouts Bear Fruit
Yesterday I wrote about the big city me. Today it’s the country boy me. I just couldn’t hold out any longer. The warm weather, the garden area so bare and then seeing someone drive by with plants in the back of their truck just took me over the edge. Off to Lowe’s I went. While… Continue reading Big City One Day, Country the Next
We got home late last night from our vacation in New York. For me, it is hard to leave New York. I love the City, the sights, the energy. When leaving, I always feel lighter and ready to tackle life. If I ever win the lottery, or somehow become very rich, New York is where… Continue reading I Love New York!
Whenever I visit someplace, I try to do at least one walkabout. On these walkabouts, I’m usually taking photographs of the places and thinking. Here in New York this week, I’ve been able to do a walkabout everyday so far. I’ve been around Rockefeller Center, around our hotel at 54th & 7th, and Times Square.… Continue reading Walkabouts and Photography
As you have probably gathered in reading some of my posts, I’m working to discover what to do in the next chapter of my life. To help me figure that out, I’ve been reading Born For This by Chris Guillebeau. In one of the chapters, it essentially is asking the reader, me in this case,… Continue reading What Are My Skills?
The day is finally here. We head off to NYC tonight on the red-eye via JetBlue (heard good things about this airline, so hope they are true). I love New York. Often I find this odd since I’m such a introvert, preferring to be alone than with people. There is something about big cities that… Continue reading Green Acres Here We…Wait, Wrong…New York City Here We Come!
As if we didn’t already have enough to worry about with our current president and his administration. You know, the tweets, the harassment of women, buddying up to white nationalists, backing down from the NRA, his family running the country, and least we forget, the lying, lying, lying. Oh, and his inability stand-up to Russia,… Continue reading Get Ready…The Drum Beat To War Has Begun
