Take time to see where you are

This is my favorite time of year to take to the trail. Even as the weather gets colder and colder, I seem to log more miles in the woods in January than most of the other months.  There are a few reasons for that. For one, the cold weather keeps the crowds away from the […]

Getting a hand on success

The Atlanta Braves are once again playing for a World Series. The last time we had such an opportunity, I was just learning to drive.  This run surely doesn’t seem all that possible. After coming within a game of the World Series in 2020, it sure didn’t look like 2021 would be our year. After […]

Finding joy

I haven’t been getting enough sleep lately. I’ve been spending a lot of time on the road, and the road has plenty of surprises that can interrupt my sleeping patterns. First there was a visit with my folks, then a few nights over Fourth of July weekend with a lot of friends and their tiny, […]
