ORANGE COUNTY TRIBUNE

A Little Bit Whole30 and A Whole-Lotta Jesus

Home.  Home is seldom a place.  It is a feeling, an emotion, a warmth in the soul that cannot be chilled, a scent, a person, a memory.  I have always been inquisitive and loved learning.  No, not learning out of a textbook (though there’s a place for that as well,) but learning from my surroundings and little […]

In coastal Georgia, where I live, we have 7-8 ft tides. There is nowhere else along the southern coast where there is such a fluctuation. It is because of the westward dip in the coast. Today we had extremely high tides. I have not heard how high but such tides cause some coastal flooding on […]

*Photo taken in the woods of Nelson, NH. A couple of weeks ago, as I was brushing my teeth, I had a sudden attack of desire for backpacking. I closed my eyes for a few moments, imagining myself in the Adirondacks (one of my favorite places in the world) and I could smell the gorgeous […]

Atlanta birding with P

It’s the writer’s life, really. It’s, it’s, umm… any artists’ life is… failing, failing, failing, waiting around, nothing will ever work again. All the interesting birds are gone. Nature’s falling apart. And then, suddenly you’re seeing a Prothonotary Warbler. And all of that is forgotten, and there’s this-this moment when the world’s okay. -Jonathan Franzen […]

So Prone to Wander

The Southeast, particularly in the ridges of Southern Appalachia, is world renown for its prime hunting habitats and pristine conservation environments. Within a relatively small area, you can encounter hardwood forest, pine woods, wetlands, limestone caves, and swamps. The South is the most biologically diverse region in the entire United States. Home to the raccoon, opossum, waterfowl, cougar, bear, deer, fox, bobcat, rabbit, and weasel. Not to mention some of the rarest salamander and minnows in the world.

The Culture Shack

Last year (2018) I attended some fascinating traditional festivals in Taiwan and Spain, worlds apart in physical and cultural space, but both wild and compelling. Mixed in among the noise, smoke, laughter, animals –real or magical – and general craziness, I learned a few things about myself. Travel can do that for you, at its […]
