July 2021 Books …

I’m not sure what happened to July. It passed quickly and quietly. Maybe it’s because I spent a lot of time reading comic books and books about comics, although I did fit in one disappointing novel. Let’s get that out of the way first. Falling by T. J. NewmanThis is the second time this summer... Continue Reading →

Walking and Listening …

I walk every day. Some days it’s as little as two miles, some day’s it’s more like today’s 5.5. My goal is at least two miles per day and three times each week, I want to hit my 10,000-step FitBit goal, which translates to about 4.25 miles for me (I’m short). But my overriding goal...

Somewhere, Beyond the Sea …

It's sometimes hard to believe that beyond that wall is the rest of the world.

Having... Continue Reading →

I plan to do a "Vans of Coronado" feature on my Instagram account one day, right before... Continue Reading →

Seattle 2021 …

I took a ton of photos during my recent trip to Seattle and this is my favorite of the bunch. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's the dramatic composition, maybe the mystery of the two people who seem oblivious to my picture-taking and into their own little worlds. Maybe it's the futuristic rise of the...
