Welcome to my blog

As I work on creating this blog, I find myself asking why I am doing this. I certainly do not want it to be a monument to “me-ism.” 

So I need to hear from some of you who visit it how it serves you — is it entertaining, inspiring, educational, or what?

Specific details are most welcome in your response email.

Since I have done many things over the years — physics, outdoors activities, inner journeys, time as a volunteer fire lookout, hot-air ballooning, photography, making books and calendars, tinkering and crafting in various ways, etc., there may appear to be no coherent focus in these blog posts. 

I hope you enjoy following me into some of the odd corners of my experiences and thinking, and that I inspire you to enjoy and value some of the odd corners of your own living.
