Eastward Bound

Personal

I’ve mentioned that I’ll be moving back to Pennsylvania.  Well, the movers have taken all of my belongings and now the time has come for me to get on a plane early tomorrow morning so I can get to the east coast.

I’ll be spending some time in Ocean City, Maryland where my mom lives while I hunt for a place around the Philadelphia area.
I’m nervous and excited to make this move.  I love the San Francisco Bay Area.  I absolutely love it here.  I love the people, the weather, the scenery, and so much more.  San Francisco has made me feel at home and I’ll miss it incredibly as I fly over the bay tomorrow.
The Philadelphia (Main Line) area is where I am from.  Though I was born in Virginia and moved around a lot, the Main Line is where I feel I “grew up”.  It will be great to come back to old friends and be a lot closer to my mom.  I’m not crazy about the cold winters but it’s a beautiful area and I’m looking forward to rediscovering it all.  It has been far too long since I last went skiing too.
So I may be off the grid for a little bit while I work on finding a home but I will be returning all contact requests as soon as possible.
See you on the East Side!
Nowhere in this country, from sea to sea, does nature comfort us with such assurance of plenty, such as rich and tranquil beauty as in those unsung, unpainted hills of Pennsylvania.

I Ran the Disneyworld Marathon to Stop MS

Perhaps it’s because all of the training is solo and because I do it all for me.  I’m not competing against anyone but myself. Working up to the race took hours upon hours of running, logging over 1000 miles last year in anticipation for my very first 26.2 miles in Orlando, Florida for the Disney World Marathon last Sunday. In 2011 I completed Philly’s Broad Street Run in May, the Chicago Rock n Roll half marathon in August, and the Las Vegas nighttime Rock n Roll half marathon in December. When I started running 2.5 years ago, I never thought I’d r ...

Fathers
About this time last year I learned how to develop film and print my own images in the darkroom. I wanted to give my first finished picture to my dad for his birthday on June 23rd. I agonized over which image to choose. I finally decided on this iris and spent weeks perfecting my chemical baths, lights, and dodging and burning to create a portrait I was proud to give him.He was the one who gave me my first camera and encouraged my love of photography. He has been proud of me every step of the way through all trials and tribulations.I have just experienced my first Father's Day without my father. He passed away July 7th, 2006 from lung can ...
