Adventures in China: A Photographic Essay, Part I

Adventures in China: A Photographic Essay, Part I

During the last nine days of July, 2015, my girlfriend Nina and I went on our first “an adventure of lifetime” trip to China. Now that her kids are grown up and out of the house, and we both near fifty years of age, it’s time for both of us to truly enjoy our lives. […]

There is Nothing Wrong With Falling in Love

There is Nothing Wrong With Falling in Love

There is nothing wrong with falling in love. Especially if you have failed before. I can tell you this with experience. I have failed and failed yet came back. I have seen my house flooded and ruined. Have seen the boards warp and rot. I have seen the doors fall off, And I can tell […]
