I wonder at the intricate connection of souls and am honored looking into the eyes of others in realization they are receiving my light. Traveling onward, my heart warmed by the love…

Moments that Set Fire to the Stars

Turning the north eastern corner of my travels, longing to see my very much missed family in South Carolina beckoned. For years I assembled details of my sister’s life and imagined her home in Pomaria  a thousand times. Not until arriving, pulling into her driveway and seeing her sweet smile had I fully ascertained this.…

Prowess and Purveyor of Secrets

Apparently, I’m so inextricably drawn to and captivated by this city. On our last day here together, we’d have acquired a strange trust of this place and find ourselves settled into such mystery. No less intrigued, we’d surrender control and allow ourselves to be taken by what wonders were left to be revealed. We’d be guided…

Exploring the Enigma

Alley cats, we’d find sun in Jackson Square to sleep in, amidst myriads of street performers, musicians, artists and tarot card readers. Upon waking from our nap, with darkness approaching and stomachs grumbling we’d leave decisions to be discerned by gut and liver in what we’d eat and drink. Our organs, acumens were lured to…

Marvels and Masquerade

A stop by Mimi’s in the Marigny, a dark smokey tapas bar, was decided upon. In trusting the recommendation of a friend we’d order something I never would have thought to, the lamb chops.

Austin, TX

I’d arrive in Tejas on a friend of a friend’s birthday night, so there was a celebration to begin. I was stoked to hear that the evening would entail swinging by the White Horse, one of my favorite places in Austin. A pretty hip honky-tonk dance hall where I’ve never seen music that I didn’t love.…

Places with Propensity to Sing their Hearts Out

The next few days on the road would be itinerant, travelling from one music city to another with persistence to reach my destination and encounter friends in Austin, TX. There’d be a vicissitude of country music on the radio: classic, contemporary, outlaw, pop, etc… which I’d listen to the whole ride from Cincinnati because, well……

Cold Winter Inspirations and Considerations

Enduring a winter of such snow, my inspirations were fostered less intrepidly. The most elemental of my experiences was venturing out onto the Nock, a frozen lake near by that seemed extraterrestrial with its ice fishing craters and remnants of ice fires. Perhaps the most intimate was being lost in stories, lost in books. Throughout…

Adventures in Chickendom: Growth!

The summer sun is strong. Sunflowers burst; their blossoms are heavy, cicadas emerge from the dirt and raspberries have retired. Along with the fruitful bounty of tomatoes, swiss chard, beets, basil and everything else thriving in my garden, my chickens have grown! Physically, we’re finally through with the awkward and rather ugly transition of adolescence.…
