Negative To Positive


I will often take several HUNDRED photographs in one location, much less one day.  Later, my time is consumed in the  selection process.  “Which one of these best expreses the mood, the sensation, the message?  Which qualifies for the next step?” I was laid … Continue reading

Love Is In The Air!


My Dad used to tell me that I was born during the most glorious time of year; the Fall. I admit that if had a favorite season, Fall is in the running.  Hunting season, running the dogs, persimmon gathering, the Fall harvest, trips … Continue reading

Snail Mail & Boys Town Part 2


 As students are accepted to Boys Town, there isn’t any way of knowing how many life-long relationships take root.  I’ve come to appreciate them all. I plan to share some of these experiences in future writings.  Once I completed Orientation, I realized MY residency in the Home was not a temporary … Continue reading

Snail Mail And Boys Town Part 1

I’ve been fortunate to avoid serious “winter blues” this year. I was far too occupied, doing battle with the ice and snow along the I-80, I-76 corridor. The grueling winter between Omaha and Denver has been no better or worse … Continue reading
