I met Will in SMA. He and his wife had just retired and were traveling the world. They were on their first stop, I believe, in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Now, the thing about Will is that he’ll tell you everything that you need to know about traveling around the world as a “minimalist”, whether you asked him or not! We hung out in SMA as well as in Washington state. I got a chance to hear about and…

As I look back through the archives and see how many times I’ve posted lately, they’ve been few and far between. Getting back to work in the office has been an adjustment, to say the least; however, I’m rather in the flow of it, now and don’t really find it a problem. Of course, I do miss being able to get up in the morning, go to the dam, take pictures, and still be able to start work by 9:00…

Well, I probably didn’t get the kind of looks that these guys did, after all, I didn’t have on a kilt, but … Last night I stayed a work a little bit late (late for me, that is).

I kept my eye on him during a half hour or so when I walked past…

The other day during my conversation with my Spanish teacher, Vidal, we got on the topic about natural wonders and parks in The U.S. as well as in Guatemala, where he lives. Guatemala is a fairly small country, about the size of Tennessee. Vidal indicated that he thought they have about 5 national parks, or parques nacionales. In reality, they have 21! He also mentioned that even though Guatemala has a number of different environs, there is no desert and…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s usually some months down the line when I realize that I didn’t change the time on my digital cameras and, really it’s not big deal especially since “Standard” time is so short, lasting a scant few months. The only time it kind of matters is if two cameras have different times and I use both of them on the same day. It makes the capture time sorting kind of strange. I saw the light in this picture in my…
