With our dog, Bella.

Always on the lookout for beautiful and interesting things in life, I write blog posts, essays, and poetry based on my personal experiences. With most posts I include photos I’ve made using my Fujifilm X-T20 or iPhone 8 Plus.

I live and work on the high plains of the United States, travel occasionally, and ponder often. Outside my day job (which I won’t talk about on this site) I write for myself because I must. Photography has been a sometimes hobby for the past decade and I enjoy taking pictures and mixing them with the words I write. I appreciate strong coffee, classical music played from vinyl records, good books, and our yard.

About the blog’s title

Lately I’ve been writing on this small desk that my wife, Jennifer, helped me make. The desk sits behind our front yard’s lilac bush.


Thanks for visiting.
