This wine glass, or the work week, half done or not? I’ll look to the bright side of the work week and say it’s nearly half done. For the wine, well, the glass is still half full and at the time I was relaxed, enjoying myself. This photo was taken at Oak Glen outside of […]

Wish Upon a Stone Mushroom

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
