The Ungovernable

Posted by admin on October 11, 2013 in Musings |

“We have to face the fact that either all of us are going to die together or we are going to learn to live together and if we are to live together we have to talk.” …Eleanor Roosevelt Somewhere in one of my texts for a university political science class, I read that the first […]

Banned

Posted by admin on September 20, 2013 in Birds, Musings, Travel |

The paint peeled and the old bricks disintegrated and the wood splintered and the heat cooked the patched pavement. This was Hannibal, Missouri. Betty and I ventured there on our recent jaunt from Boise to Nashville, Tennessee. Going to Hannibal is something I’ve desired since I was a kid and read some of Mark Twain’s […]

On Sheep, Blogging and Hog Leg .44s

Posted by admin on August 2, 2013 in Musings, Writing |

The beginning of this October, I am to participate in a writers’ retreat about blogging with some fine fellow bloggers, and I suspect there will be a bevy of useful tips and advice for writers of all levels. My experience as a blogger is: I know how to get my blog up on my site […]

On Film Versus Digital

Posted by admin on May 18, 2013 in Musings, Photography, Travel |

Betty and I are off venturing in the foothills of Northern California on the beginning of another screening tour. One of the things we like best about traveling like this is how we get to see so much of the US that we might not be able to visit otherwise. We get to meet people […]

Remembering Cam Cunningham

Posted by admin on May 10, 2013 in Musings, Remembrances |

This is the season of remembrance and I suppose as we get older we can expect our opportunities to mourn and grieve to line up and bang at our metaphorical portals. This one is a bit tardy, but nevertheless, I choose to now write my remembrances. Last summer Betty and I were traveling in the […]

On Mustangs, Mountain Bluebirds, Ruddy Ducks and Buckaroos

Posted by admin on May 3, 2013 in Birds, Musings, Photography, Travel |

It seems like whenever I think it may be time to move on from Idaho and experience some other part of the world that moment of indecision coincides with a trip to the one-hundred-five-year-old Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and surrounding environs in southeastern Oregon. The country there is a mix of high sage and bitterbrush […]

In Memory of Gail Larrick

Posted by admin on April 26, 2013 in Musings, Travel |

The red in the rocks to the north of where we stood bled like rusty paint into the juniper-piñon green. To the south and west, the chalky white buttes and ridges jutted and alternately reminded me of the ends of white spuds and crumbling teeth from a shark’s jaw fossil. The streets in the little […]

On Spring, Green and US Highway 95

Posted by admin on April 19, 2013 in Musings, Travel |

Wednesday Betty and I drove from Boise to Moscow, Idaho, and Pullman, Washington, via US Highway 95. Well, not all the way; the first hundred or so miles we journeyed along Idaho Highway 55 through Horseshoe Bend, up the Payette River Canyon into the high long valley that runs through Cascade, Donnelly and McCall, Idaho […]

On El Norte and Moscow

Posted by admin on April 12, 2013 in Musings |

Betty and I are going north to Moscow, Idaho, to screen our documentary film BRAVO! and as always, the prospect of traveling to a new location leaves me with—besides a sense of elation—a sense of trepidation…sort of, anyway. Not that I am on edge like I would be if I had to travel to Syria […]

On Pruners, Prose and Metaphor

Posted by admin on April 5, 2013 in Musings, Travel, Writing |

Betty and I have been on the road it seems all winter and the early weeks of spring. So when we returned home to Boise eight days ago, our yard looked a little haggard, as if we needed to spend some serious work time. Pruning and digging and raking and planting all need to be […]
