I was sitting in the Atlanta airport on Thursday morning waiting for my connection to Akron. I was dressed appropriately for Charlotte weather. I had on shorts, a t-shirt, and sandals. It was quite comfortable. When I sat down in the terminal in Atlanta, I noticed that it was very cold in the terminal. So, I sought out a place to get warm. Fortunately, there are lots of windows in the Atlanta airport, some of them facing east. I moved…

L-R: Bill, Robert, Jim, and Paul It is really amazing, to me, how we can not see someone for a really long time, say about 30 years, and just pick right up where we left off. This weekend, I am in Akron, Ohio, doing my yearly visit. Thanks to Facebook, Jim saw my post about visiting and rallied the troops together so that we could have a small reunion.

He sent me a message on Facebook, said he follows my blog, mentioned that he lived just right up the road and that we should get together. Cool! You know that I’m ready for that! We exchanged…

It has been a lot of fun the past two days looking back through the photographic archives, opening up old Lightroom catalogs and peering at the photos therein. I realize how fickle and romantic memory can be, but I derived a great sense of pleasure remembering where I was and what I felt when I took the picture. For example, this top photo was taken on July 8th, 2004. We had just moved to North Carolina. According to the timestamp…
