Missouri Botanical Garden
A few days ago, I decided I need a weekend away. The dismal Chicago weather was getting to me as to so often does these days. So I headed south to St. Louis and by Saturday morning found myself at the Missouri Botanical Garden.
- Crossing Wyoming
- I didn’t think it was going to be a big deal. I thought crossing Wyoming would be a cinch. Just a bit of straight-line driving. What I didn’t count on were the blinding skies, the car-jerking winds and the absolute, sheer, awesome hugeness of the place.
- Summer Recreation
- Pictures from a trip to southern Illinios with my mom to visit Garden of the Gods National Wilderness in the Shawnee National Forest. The lack of concrete in southern Illinois is refreshing.
- Inhabiting a Small World
- Nine weeks into the pandemic lockdown, I start to settle down and finally find some contentment in the small world I now inhabit. A long-forgotten calm eases back into my days.
