Welcome to my world...13 acres on the side of a mountain in north Georgia, which I share with my human, canine and feline family. I am surrounded by beauty and love of all kinds, but the roads I have traveled in this life have rarely been smooth. I know, though, that True Love travels on a gravel road, and Wisdom is borne from adversity. As Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote ~ When it is dark enough, you can see the stars. For most of my life I have tried to capture - in essay, poem, and photograph - the stars I've seen and the wisdom I've found. I share some of those crude attempts on this website; I hope you find a rough gem, or a not-too-distant star, somewhere in this collection.
If not, you should check out that Emerson fellow. He may not be up to speed with the latest technology, but he's a damn good writer.
