I have had a hell of a year. It was a very tough year professionally. I have worked for 14 years in a place that has never really fit me. I tried to leave the first year, but through some kind of Universe trick, it wouldn't let me go back from where I came. So … Continue reading A Hell of a Year – Finding Peace

Not bracing, not refreshing, out of place November air, but welcoming nevertheless. Cold air is coming in now, as it should … Continue reading Autumn Finally Here
This is the Boreas River, up on 28N, near Minerva and Newcomb, NY.
