    Wish You Were Here! I’ve got picture postcards from Pittsburgh, where we’ve taken a few days away to explore a city close’ish to home over the holiday weekend: And my favorite site, RandyLand. A public art-and-garden scape in the works since the 1990’s. His moving story is on the first panel: We had two full […]

I love wisteria–and there’s plenty left–but it’s too much of a good thing. […]

    Because you asked for it, I’ve got postcards from the West to share! All pictures in this post were taken by my kids. They have better phones with better cameras, and half the time I don’t have mine on me. So, silver linings to teens + phones, I s’pose… First + foremost: I love going […]

    In no particular order, I read to learn, escape, and be inspired. (Now that I think of it…that’s why I travel, too!)
