Fiesta Bowl Oregon Kansas State

A Fiesta Bowl and a perfect ending to a travel journey

I could see death lingering just over the edge a few hundred feet below.  Sweat poured from my brow and my heart raced with every step. Over the years, more than a few had died here.  Many others needed to be rescued, suffered from heat exhaustion, or weren’t fit enough to finish the journey. As […]

Army Navy football snipers

The Army Navy football game: United we stand, divided we play

I was freezing as the wind and cold cut through my gloves and jacket.  Snipers were all around me.  However, it didn’t matter.  I had goose bumps and shared the same space as President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.   Welcome to the Army Navy football game. Last year, I had the chance to […]

A Civil War showdown dressed in orange and black

The cold, misty fog greeted me at midnight on Thanksgiving Day.  However, the dreary ending wasn’t the welcome I was hoping for on my first day in Corvallis and a Civil War a day away.

The University Motel – comfort and compassion at the University of Washington

Taking the train from the airport to downtown, the Fall leaves decorated the Seattle skyline like ornaments on a Christmas tree.  It was early November and I was excited.  Even though I love Fall, I wasn’t here for the colorful panorama of Seattle’s Fall foliage. This weekend kicked off the first stop in the inaugural […]

memorable moments Howth Ireland sunset

When memorable moments surprise you

I’ve seen a bird on a parachute.  I’ve taken one of the best photos I’ve ever taken.  I’ve met two film makers who were featured at the Toronto Film Festival.  Would you call these memorable moments? I’ve enjoyed pints of Guinness and some Irish craic with the nicest people I’ve ever met.  I’ve talked to […]
