Where am I From?
After looking through all of my photos in my computer, I realized I really don't have any landscapes of where I live. Weird, considering there are thousands of pics in there. But then, to answer Michelle's crusade: Where in The World?" - I'd have to have many, many pictures to represent all the places I have lived in my life. All in all, I am a Yankee. I was born and raised in upstate, NY - Buffalo, Owego, Binghamton, Endicott, Ithaca, Cortland...I went to college in Providence, RI. I lived in Ann Arbor, Mi for a while - a very nice place. I was married and divorced there, changed careers there, and more or less found myself there. After that I went to Maui, where I was for a whole decade. It was there that I sowed mt wild oats. Met the love of my life, started my family, developed myself artistically and spiritually. I miss it there. From Hawaii I went to Oregon City, OR. And then, 2 years ago, I found myself back in my home town of Owego, NY. Here we all are, all seven of us, making it work and basically happy. That's it in a nutshell. i am so happy to be home, here in New York. I love this place. I love the winter, and how beautiful the bare trees look against the sunset. The rolling hills and autumn leaves. The spring flowers and the family of deer in the back forty. That's what I missed most while i was in Hawaii - the change of seasons. I think Autumn in NY is spectacular. I love this place and I'm so proud to be from here.
