  • Thoughts & Feelings

    Even though I hate driving (especially in the city), I love getting out on the open roads in the countryside. Ohio is not known for having he most diverse or visually appealing scenery. Some would say it’s boring, and I don’t entirely disagree. But it is home, that’s something that can’t be overlooked. It’s a…

  • My Life Be Like: 2023 edition (Part 2)

    Hi everyone! Here is my second set of shots from January 2023. I’m so happy with how the project has turned out so far and can’t wait to see what I can capture over the month of February!

  • My Life Be Like: 2023

    Hi everyone! For 2023 I am embarking on a special project where I take at least one photo every day on my Fujifilm XF10. These photos can be of anything–the good, the bad, and (occasionally) the blurry. The goal of this project is to just photograph more of my life, and find something new every…

  • Searching for Hope

    Searching for Hope

    I’m on a quest. I’m seeking hope amidst these troubling times. Some people may think I’m foolish for doing so. With how the world is going right now, how could I possibly believe that hope still exists? The times are too dark to even believe in such a thing. It would be easier to just…

  • For Ian & Cheslie

    I can’t speak for anyone else, but for me, these past couple of weeks have been hard. Like everyone else, I have a lot of stress from the ongoing pandemic, harsh winter weather, and my day-to-day difficulties. But the deaths of Ian Alexander Jr. and Cheslie Kryst have been on the forefront of my mind.…

  • Dear Betty White

    Dear Betty White, We have never met before, at least not on this side of the lanai. But you have been one of the most important people in my life for a long time. I think you’ve played that role for many people throughout the decades you’ve been in entertainment. You have been a familiar…

  • My Journey with the Tao: Verse 1

    My Journey with the Tao: Verse 1

    The tao that can told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. The unnamable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. Free from desire, you realize the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and manifestations arise…

  • My Journey with the Tao: Introduction

    My Journey with the Tao: Introduction

    Hey everyone! I wanted to start a new project/series that focuses on me learning more about Taoism. This has been something that I’ve been thinking about doing for awhile, and now feels like a good time to start. I’ll be going through the Tao Te Ching, written by Lao Tzu, verse by verse, and sharing…

  • Author of Life #1

    Author of Life #1

    The most important story you can tell is your own.  Stories are an integral part of the human experience. Without them, life would definitely not be the same. Stories help us to connect with and learn from one another. They give us hope, teach us lessons, force us to think, and so much more.  In…
