Are Names Important?

We continue our series of old posts while I am traveling with some thoughts on children’s names first posted in 2015. William Shakespeare has many memorable, oft quoted lines, including the one about the rose. You know the one, from Romeo and Juliet, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” The implication is […]

Simple Logic

Our re-runs continue, but I thought we should take a break from travel for a couple of days. I wrote this one in 2015. I’m not sure if my mother ever read it – she didn’t make it online until 2017, when she was 88. She read the daily posts here, but she never mentioned […]

Trench Warfare

Welcome to re-run time. Some of my favorite posts, mostly older and travel related, while I myself am on the road. When I was a pre-teen I was for a while very interested in war stories. Which would explain why in both 2009 and 2014 I visited the Ypres area in Belgium. This post is […]

An Unusual Grave

A Picture Is Worth…

Welcome to re-run time. Some of my favorite posts, mostly older and travel related, while I myself am on the road. This post, from 2014 gave new meaning to an old proverb. If a picture really is worth a thousand words, then I don’t need to say too much today. Maybe it’s my eyes, but […]

Highly Overrated

A Sea of Tulips

I just realized the Tulip Festuival is happening in Ottawa and I’m missing it. That’s one of the drawbacks of traveling – you miss some things back home. Here are some photos from the last time I was in town for the Tulip Festival, 2017. A photo essay today, just to give you a sampling […]
