I do enjoy a bit of fog, even if it is a tiny bit. On this particular morning, it was what the weather folks call ‘patchy fog’. On my usual route, I know where to find it and these two houses, right next to each other, seem to attract it. The mornings are cooler, giving fog a chance to make an appearance. As long as I have a camera with me, in this case, the iPhone, I’ll photograph it. In…

Suit? Check! Power tie? Check! Glasses? Check! Watch? Check! Shoes? Check! Good to go! A couple of years ago, Tony told me that he was about to start changing his image. He’s always cared about his clothes, the way that he dresses; however, he wanted to take the next step and move from nicely dressed, hip, high school fellow, to someone who would be taken seriously – a businessman.

What a joy it was to sit on the front stoop, enjoy the 60 degree weather…

Well, if you came here looking for a few leaves changing colors, sorry to disappoint. This is how my hallway looks at the moment. What you cannot see is that around and corner, in the guest bedroom, there is 2 or 3 times as much stuff spread out on the floor! My son, Mr. Tony Lester, as I am wont to call him, is off on another adventure. You may think that I travel a lot, but this guy does…

Being labeled talented only means we have survived being untalented. ~Craig Tanner This post is for all of the beginners, myself included. From the first time that I read it, I’ve always enjoyed Craig Tanner’s short article, The Myth of Talent. I will refer it from time to time because I like the message within. I’ve been learning Spanish, taking classes, using an application on my phone, Duolingo, watching Spanish soap operas, much to my girlfriend’s amusement, basically doing everything…
