For the sake of old times…

Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and auld lang syne? For auld lang syne, my jo, for auld lang syne, we’lltak’ a cup o’ kindness yet, for auld lang syne. And surely ye’ll be your pint-stoup! and surely I’ll be mine! And we’ll tak’ a cup

Teaching portraits…

For those unaware, I teach. But it really helps to bring in others to help sometimes. Sometimes I just know someone does it better than me. Sometimes I know that to have someone else say what I’ve said but in a voice that is not one they commonly hear, that goes far, too! On this

A wild and crazy guest…

When you live near a wooded area, there’s no telling what you hear romping around in the night. But… they’re getting a big more brave these days… It’s no puma, but a resident young bobcat is keeping our mice count low, I’d bet. Stay tuned, might as well… -Noah D.

The morning, the water ghost, and the tree…

There is no map for the places each of us go. Daily, we take steps down roads which have never been trodden; or perhaps they have simply never been charted, even by those who have been there before. Each morning I take my dog outside. She gets me up far earlier than I normally would.

Led to the end…

Life is sweet in the belly of the beast And with her song in your heart, It can never bring you down Lost in a maze of a thousand rainy days But when I heard her voice, oh it led me to the end Yes, it led me to the end Cause when she sings

Of what we ride…

Of what we ride…

The surest thing there is is we are riders, And though none too successful at it, guiders, Through everything presented, land and tide And now the very air, of what we ride. What is this talked-of mystery of birth But being mounted bareback on the earth? We can just see the infant up astride, His

The reason for daily commute…

So, I’m back to teaching! For those just joining us, I taught at Harding University literally the semester after I graduated. Kinda weird for both me and the students that were my same age, but… The normal teacher and University Photographer came down with a pretty serious case of dengue fever from mission work slash

Ends of trails never end stories…

Ends of trails never end stories…

One thing that is apparent after an 8000 mile road trip in eighteen days is that, while the outside of the car looks the same once you run it through a car wash, it is on the inside of the car that the real mileage shows.

Waiting in line to move very quickly…

And, we pick up where we left off: arriving to Detroit. We’re almost halfway through! Not that we want it to go by quickly… One of the little… let’s say… “inconveniences” of Mini Takes the States is the queue times. Whoa is me, poor first world problem, driving across the country, etc, but… but every morning

A dog under a shade tree…

It takes no leash to hold a dog under a shade tree. Starting days cheered onto the track (this time at Richmond). And onward… So far we’ve made it up the eastern seaboard and turned left for west. It would be a travesty to visit this area of the country without visiting Gettysburg… …and the
