I took this photograph the other morning as I was walking to the office. It’s a pleasant 7/10th of a mile walk as long as it’s not too hot. I like to walk, especially if I have a lot of thinking or writing to do, as the morning walk clears my mind. And yards like this make walking even more of a treat. As for the photo, I wonder why I didn't place the flag a bit right of center instead of left of center. Was I was making a political statement?
I haven’t had much time for blogging lately. I’m getting ready to fly west for a conference. I leave late this afternoon. While out there, I’ll take a few days off for hiking with my son and hopefully have a couple days without distraction for planning.
I’ve recently read an incredible book which I’ll review as one of my “Southern Summer Reading Challenge.” Blood Done Sign My Name, by Timothy Tyson, took my back to my junior and senior high years as a student in North Carolina during a racially tense era. Look for that review soon, along with some memoirs dealing with that era that have been brought to the forefront while reading Tyson’s book. I’ve also been listening to Dracula on my ipod. Not being much of one for the horror genre, I’m finding myself enjoying it.
Catching Up Some More...
Ok, it's 11 PM at night and I'm still stuck in Michigan. After waiting and then having flights cancelled, I decided to wait till the morning. If all had gone right, they could have gotten me to Vegas at midnight, but since I was planning on driving up to Southern Utah, I didn't want to do that, so hopefully I'll fly out at 7 AM. Wish me luck. At least, while waiting, I've finished a book review which I'll post tomorrow.
