Philosophy & Star Trek

SOPHIA Roanoke is happening again, this time with a Philosophy & Star Trek series:

I’m late to get the fliers printed, and I’m too worn out from this week and blissed out from my massage to really do much other than send texts. I miss Kinko’s.

A Room Without A Roof

Happy has been stuck in my head since Tuesday afternoon, and I am not even a little mad about it.
Clap along!

Hold the applause til the end



Applause is the spur of noble minds, the end and aim of weak ones.

What a good bridge you've been!

Wasena bridge was a meaningful part of my everyday life from the day I arrived in Roanoke in 1978. I am not sure how I'll get to my favorite coffee shop over the next two years while the city does the (deperately needed) replacement project. It's an icon and feature of the neighborhood and the residents that make it My Neighborhood.


What a good bridge you've been!

The Beauty of the Earth

Eclipse 2024

We didn’t travel, and weren’t in the totality, and the clouds obscured most of the show.
None of that mattered.
It was still a lovely day.



Other places and dates on my mind:

  • Morocco, August 2, 2027
  • Queenstown, July 22, 2028
