“I really am just trying to tell stories. But stories are often grounded in larger events and themes. They don’t have to be – there’s a big literature of trailer-park, kitchen-table fiction that’s just about goings-on in the lives of ordinary people.“

~ Neal Stephenson

main streets, side streets, backroads

summer of love














You’re either on the bus…or off the bus.
~ Ken Kesey



She brings a camera everywhere,
notices the little things,
gets a cup of coffee at a different cafe,
takes the long way home”.

~ MH Clark









wandering around Tower Hill Botanical Garden
exploring some woodland trails
downtown for coffee
a bit of people watching in the park
spring is here

winter sea










we took the backroads
exploring off the beaten track
under changeable skies
by the sea
ending with the best clam chowdah
and a few beers at the local pub
we walked back to our hotel
on the mostly empty streets
in the dark
