    Road Trip to New Mexico

    One of my best friends is living in Santa Fe, New Mexico, for several months to complete a project -- and I thought, what a perfect excuse for a road trip! “I was surprised, as always, by how easy the act of leaving was, and how good it felt. The world was suddenly rich with possibility.” --- Jack Kerouac, On the Road [...]

    Onboard the B-17 Flying Fortress

    Beautiful: The slow drone of four radial piston engines on a crystal clear November morning as I stepped back in time with this great warbird. This morning, I drove out to a small [...]

    In the great wide open places, I can see the forever. The sky enfolds you, and then you are inside it.
