5 months into a new reality.

Posted: 28th July 2012 by admin in Uncategorized

Almost the first of August and 5 months ago we rolled into town. How very unsettling to be unsettled. We had hopes for smooth sailing and as far as the studio goes, it was nice to walk into having a little work waiting and after having done this line of work for so many years, […]

Two months…

Posted: 6th May 2012 by admin in Uncategorized

This week, it will have been two months since we landed in this foreign land of Florida. Eveything, absolutely everything in life is different. Not different in a bad way, just different. The little things you do on a daily basis, the habits, the routines, the friends and family. Things that were important now are […]

Yesterday was an interesting day. We are in search of a church we can use our music skills, not desperately seeking, but keeping our eyes and ears open for opportunity. We really loved what we did at Cornerstone Church in Keokuk, personally, I loved doing that every bit as much as Photography or any other […]

We have had opportunity to meet and speak to a good number of people now.

What a weekend! Moving is said to be as large a life experience as other things we might do like being born or dying. I’m here to attest to that. At a time when most, especially our parents would be pretty settled in life and they would be planning a quiet retirement, we have decided […]

Ed…I have a test for you!

You know those days you have when you know you’re being tested? Well…this has been one for my own personal record book. At about the halfway point in our journey came the mountain.

An early departure as you already know and with the trucks, we successfully turned an 8 hour trip into 13.5 hours. We are at a Days Inn in Murfreesboro, Tn and in the previous trips in the car we would have just blown by this area as we like to drive it straight through. Yes […]

Its early am and I lay here watching a fire burn in a fireplace in an old home in Keokuk that has been adopted by friends that also adopted us for a couple days and let us stay with them as we wrap things up here in Keokuk. In a couple hours my hometown will […]

Wednesday evening…

Posted: 29th February 2012 by admin in Uncategorized we sit all loaded and ready to go and the weather had different plans for us today. High winds prevented us from getting on the road. I figure all things happen for one reason or the other so we are staying at Hank and Karen’s one more night now that we are Keokuk homeless. […]
