When I started on this career in 2008, I wanted to keep traveling. I wanted to keep moving. I wanted to have that little slice of the dynamic in my life. The feeling like at the end of the day that things were accomplished. It was something that was often lacking in my jobs up […]Read more "Wanderlust…"
Time is a funny thing. It runs through our lives, or perhaps we run through it. Its a real force, but it doesn’t really have a physical avatar. Or does it… Coins, I have found to like footprints of time.Read more "Laundry or Introspection?"
Recently I received several DMs from several different friends on twitter saying: “hey this user is writing cruel things that are about you [bit.ly link redacted]” Now I don’t follow such links, and I usually don’t click blind links either for that matter. I get snarky if you link me blind without at least […]Read more "The ‘cruel things’ phishing attack on Twitter…"
It was unusual for me to get the number of local shots I did here. Mostly due to the fact that I had roughly 90 minutes to kill while I was unloaded. I walked into town and found lunch at this quaint little pizza place next to the magic shop. They served Donair (pronounced: Dough-Nair) […]Read more "The Places I go… Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia… 3rd shot"

Earlier this year, I delivered a load of fiberglass rolls (the stuff that is wound around a form to create hulls, similar to stretch wrapping a group of boxes) to a boat maker in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. This is a very picturesque town on the waterfront. With a surprising look of a tourist town. […]Read more "The places I go… Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia"
I spent many nights listening to the Arkansas Travelers play… on KARN Newsradio 920 in my youth. I spent far fewer nights actually at the stadium, but I did get there once or twice over a number of years. The games are no longer broadcast on KARN and the Travelers have a new home across […]Read more "Seeing foalhood vanish…"
Few things in life just ‘snap’ together like they were crafted. This lovely coincidence this morning in Oklahoma City after an intense downpour left me feeling in awe. The oddest part of the storm was the orange sky from where the rain came, with darker clouds nearby.Read more "The Rainbow Connection"
There are times when things just don’t seem to go your way. I could detail some of the hard parts of over-the-road trucking, but I doubt it would mean much to you. What I will say is that even things are bad — like tonight I am in Laramie, WY and I-80 is closed leaving […]Read more "Beauty in Adversity"
On my way through Colorado, and the weather should give us a smooth trip, even while parts of the country get hit with the white stuff. The photo is old, but from the Limon, Colorado area of a pretty rainbow I managed to snap. What made it interesting to me that day was the fact […]Read more "Rainbow trails"
