Welcome to my ramblings...


Come with me as I travel through the real places of my life and into the steep, switch-back roads of the imagination. Join me. You'll be good company and your thoughts are welcome.

On May 10, 2020, neighbors paraded up True North Grade in cars and on farm-vehicles to celebrate North Carolina reopening after Stay at Home orders were modified by Governor Cooper. Here's the video by Germain Media.

Goldenrod Season


Reflection Pond shows images of goldenrod. The bowl is full. Fall is coming!


The air is still, the shadows long. We wait for the leaves to color.


For now, we watch the sky.



Autumn days, mellow or brisk, are harvest days. Apple trees droop with their load, Virginia Beauties.



Bush-hogging begins. The bowl succumbs to the tractor blade, levelling the overgrowth.

Look carefully for the tractor up near Blueberry Hill. Much larger up close. Hard to watch, but much harder to do!
