Scouting an Event is an Event of the Present

Scouting an event, especially when it is one that covers mile of territory, can be one of the most challenging chores. That is, if you have the luxury of time, access, and in best case, same time of day conditions.  I have the CityTail Loppet coming up tomorrow morning, and […]

Dancing the water’s edge

Dancing the water’s edge. The cast, the ledge. Backlit glow. Darkness below. Mountains draw their line. Earth and space defined. Morning’s pink. Day passes with a wink.

Kawangware Sunday

The pungent scent of smoldering charcoal was an instant reminder of a place I visited before. It was two years ago, on my first visit to Nairobi on behalf of non-profit organization to educate kids called Friends of Ngong Road, that had brought me here. And I wanted to come back, […]
