Feel Good Fashion = Feel Good Economy? Bring on Neon!

Fashion styles and trends often reflect the prevailing attitude of a population. While dreary and mundane clothing represent a sense of economic stagnation, bright colors and experimental styles can portend a sense of optimism. Neon colors have been prevalent lately. Does that mean that Americans finally feel good about the future or is it a […]

Video I made for fun before leaving the VI

So far, the only video of “Life on a Rock” by Kenny Chesney and it has over 12,000 views as of November 15, 2013.  Ninety percent of the photos are mine and everyone pictured is a friend or at least someone I know. The two years I lived of St. John were 2 of the best years of my life.

Veterans’ Day Reflections of The Wall

Drunk Inside a Lucid Dream

While sitting amongst the 18th Century Danish ruins on the island of St. John in the Virgin Islands, I was inspired to write a poem:   Drunk inside a lucid dream Drunk inside a lucid dream Bright sky blue anneal my lids Sun glare searing, prying, baking Welcome wind whirling, sating   Green upon green, […]

Charleston: The Bell Jar City

As a new person to Chuck Town, I’m continually astonished at the omnipresent sense of history. It’s wonderfully inescapable. Block after city block of structures that have celebrated over 150 birthdays. As you would expect, the homes, business and landmarks each bear their age differently. Happily, many stand tall and strong, defiant of time and […]
