Even though I have a routine when I publish on Storyteller, there are days when WordPress sets out to defeat me. They did that yesterday. If I’m on some kind of loose schedule, I try to write the next days post very late at night. I was foiled last night. There was a software failure […]


Now it begins. Rain. Heat. Humidity. A southern summer. I’ve gotten used to it, but it lasts so long. We’ll be lucky if the weather begins to cool off in mid-October. Although with the pandemic age, time still has almost no meaning. I continue to think Friday is either Thursday or Saturday. I continue to […]


A rose by any other name… Or, something like that. We reached a point in the year when first blooms are dying. No worries. New blooms are on the way. This started me think about life cycles. Eventually, I arrived at our pandemic, CoVid 19, as how people are reacting to it or not, as […]

Quietude. That’s what yesterday was about. I think that because my fear of the virus has lessened and that I’ve actually came to some decisions about my photographic work, I slept. And, slept.
