For the Love of Trains

These little boys have taught me… Adventure is everywhere if only you will let it be. Perfection is in the eye of the beholder. Moving, changing, and trying is where life begins.

Over the years I’ve explored “authenticity,” “transparency,” “simplicity,” “privacy,” occasionally a word took me more than one year and this past year I chose “present.” I have yet to decide on a word for this year, but in the process I’ve […]
