Wildflowers

From late 2016 up to April 2017, Southern California enjoyed more rain than it has in a long time. Gratefully, I took advantage and over those few months I would bike ride near my home and take pictures here and there. This video is the culmination of those trips. So, just in case you didn’t…

Rocky Springs

Rocky Springs-A Town That Isn’t Rocky Springs is, or should I say was, a town in Mississippi. I say was because it’s no longer there.

A Life Well Lived

James Dean And A Country Drive

Life Changing Decision

Recently my life changed, drastically. One day I had a long commute to an average part-time job with no benefits. It was a job I enjoyed, but with no challenge and no future. The next day I didn’t. What happened? I had been at this job for almost two years (one of the longest jobs…
