The Bit Where I Turn Five!

Well, no – I’m not actually turning five.  (That happened, uh, rather a long time ago…)  But it was five years ago that I embarked on a journey like none I’d taken before – I started Tesserology! Now, given that I can’t even keep a house plant alive for five years, this is a major […]

Alaska: The Outside View Bit

Unbelievable how time flies!  It’s been nearly eight years since I was in a bar in Juneau, Alaska, ordering a particular drink for downing swiftly – and five years before then that I took a tentative sip of that potent concoction for the very first time!  More specifically, I was in a “saloon” in Juneau.

I attended two teas. Tea and […]

And within this eleventh month is the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day” – a time and date set aside to mark the end of World War I.  As the distance between us and that moment nears a century and several […]

A Tidbit: Scale Fails…

Scale is the subject of this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge!  And it spurred me to offer my “perspective” on an area in which I think I need a bit of work… For instance – any idea what this is? At a glance, it might seem like some idle scribblings in the dirt.  Or the work of […]
