The shortest day of the year is here. December 21, 2019, marks the winter solstice.

Before I further mix metaphors let me get to it. Adam Binder, entrepreneur and founder of Apeiron Yoga, after what I can only […]
Holy smokes Greg posted a photograph? In 2018? 2018, the year of slack, rages on, but here at least is a small reminder to myself and the world, I do, in fact, make photographs. From time to time. I had the luxury to visit Wells Mills County Park and my wonderful Rose reminded me of […]
