An Exhausted Writer’s Retreat – Sunset, Blinds, Hunter Hill, May 1, 2013

Snapshot, Dusk, Hunter Hill, March 18, 2013

Bad Snapshots

God only knows I didn’t set out to share with the world first-thing-in-the-morning snapshots from my kitchen window. God, however, has a wicked sense of humor. I wonder: have I spent too much time on Facebook? Playing guitar? Reading? Watching … Continue reading
