Memory Monday: Korea and California

Back in May of this year I discovered a big stack of matching photo albums while browsing at Denio’s flea market in Roseville. I wasn’t able to learn how they came to be there; and while the photos themselves have little or no background information in the way of captions or notes, as I progress through studying the images I’m […]

Moat Creek revisited

Two poems

These two poems were given to me by my mom several years ago. I believe she wrote them when I was fairly young — but I don’t know exactly when, and when I asked her about it recently, she couldn’t recall either. I’ve had them stowed safely away in my Treasure Box, waiting for a good time to share them […]
