“Not-knowing is true knowledge. Presuming to know is a disease. First realize that you are sick; then you can move toward health.” ~Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching I have no idea what they are called, that is, how they are labeled; I don’t need to know that to enjoy them, only that they are right outside of my front door, a few steps away. 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 thought, surely I’ve used this one, but in going back through the blog archives, since March of this year, no I’ve not used it (It does rotate through on my header, though, every once in a while)…

“A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.” ~Maya Angelou Every once in a while, I feel the need to take a retreat. This usually happens after lots of activity, like travel, work, Spanish classes, day-to-day – particularly when I haven’t taken time to do much photography, just for the sake of photography – photography only. What I mean by that is doing photography simply for the joy of it, getting up…

It has been more than 30 years since I’ve been fishing with my brother. That would put us at about 21 and 34. My brother just celebrated his 64th birthday last week. We’ve been trying to connect with each other when I’ve come to Ohio or he comes to/through North Carolina; however, he’s a busy and and, seemingly, so am I. The last time we attempted to connect was a couple of weeks ago when I was in Texas. He…
