back to it.

August 5, 2011


There is no excuse nor a clever way to explain why I forget to post new entries. Suffice it to say that I get busy and forget. I do miss my hours a day spent online though. 🙂 Unfortunately, until I get internet in my new abode I will probably spend less time on here […]

Helen, Atlanta…and Olympia?!

January 19, 2011


I need to travel more. To different places. But in the meantime, I am happy to make many more trips to Atlanta. There are great folks there and it seems each time I go I meet more wonderful people. This last trip was unexpected. I had gone up to Helen, GA with a group of […]
