It’s What Touches You

I spent last weekend and today sorting through my slides and through boxes of photos deciding what to send to be scanned. I decided that this box would be my personal images–not family photos. What I discovered is that these … Continue reading

Click! In the Name of Love

I read Click! Choosing Love and I’ve been debating as to whether I should write about it or not. I decided to because I keep thinking about it. I don’t want to review it, but I want to discuss what … Continue reading

In April I had the opportunity to go to Cuba. This was a tour through Cal Travel and AHI. It was legal–listed as a cultural exchange. We flew nonstop from LA to Havana on a weekly United flight. Nothing is … Continue reading

I’ve become obsessed with antique postcards. The obsession began in mid-November when I began researching Photochrom and Detroit Photographic for my other website William Henry Jackson’s San Diego. I began by Goggling Photochrom and found postcard websites. I’ve now spent … Continue reading

The Thread

I woke early this morning and laid in bed inquiring into truth, honesty, and facts (see yesterday’s blog).  More came up to add to the list–belief, knowing, and perception. They’re all related and often confused. I’m going to write this … Continue reading
