Enjoyed an exhilarating, if not a bit chilly, ride on a beautiful December day! Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoyed time with my colleagues during our annual retreat in Baraboo, Wisconsin. These images were taken at Devil’s Lake State Park. Thanks for stopping by.
A beautiful Fall day, a very cool wind farm and way too many images of my motorcycle. Happy Fall everyone! (Well… at least to those in this hemisphere!)
stillness reflection quiet contemplation listen He is here presence surrender holy encounter He is here searching heart open hope filled and broken He is here rest now oh my soul let grace fill the questions the doubts have no fear His love is here He is here
My home town is in the state of Illinois. We are considered a southwest suburb of Chicago. The town is all but surrounded by corn and soy bean fields and so it often seems like any kind of major city is far, far away, even though, if the traffic gods are smiling, we can be in beautiful downtown Chicago in about an hour. These Minooka, Midwest skies are treasures that I always enjoy. Thanks for stopping by.
Stepped outside my home to go to rehearsal and was greeted by this.
These are images from a recent road trip back to New York. We (my wife and I) made the trip to attend a memorial service and decided to head back to visit the area where we lived during our college days. We visited Briarcliff Manor, Tarrytown and Ossining, NY, and thoroughly enjoyed our trip down memory lane.
Regarding the images: ‘GW Bridge’ is short for the George Washington Bridge, connecting New Jersey and Manhattan. We take the Whitestone Bridge to go from the Bronx to Long Island. We enjoyed lunch at Horsefeathers, and the view of the amazing Tappan Zee Bridge, which connects Tarrytown, NY to Nyack, NY. The homes in Tarrytown and Ossining were 2 of the places we lived in after we were married while in college. It was fun taking in the sights of these old, beautiful towns!
