If I had to describe myself with one word it would be artist - a visual artist and an artist with words. My artwork is included in Ohio Online Visual Arts Registry. I'm working with various galleries in the Midwest to promote my oil paintings and abstract light photography.

 About this image:

Traveling in Canada we stopped to investigate Ska-Nah-Doht Village and Museum near Mount Brydges (west of London, south of 402) in Ontario. This year the staff is trying something new – night hikes and storytelling around a bonfire inside the village stockade – Tuesday nights in July only!

An assignment for Long Weekends allowed me to focus on Berdine’s Five & Dime, a great little store in Harrisville, WV.

Links to Published Stories: The travel tabs to the right contain stories that I have posted to this web site. My Quick Index will help you target areas of interest from accommodations and food to kid-friendly attractions. Published stories can be accessed though the links at More Information/Working Words, also on the right – just scroll down. I am continually working on adding those links into the travel tabs and Quick Index for easier access.

 Wishing you safe and pleasant travels – ALWAYS!

We tend to think of culture as something old and fragile …. Culture is also inventive.  Of course it is.  Someone had to invent it so that we could fuck it up.  Eric Weiner
