Adventures in Aging

I'm young at heart. But this project (and the rides on roller coasters, waterslides, snowmobiles, and water skis it has involved) has made me realize I'm not so young of body any more.

Lake Geneva & Me

This project took me back to George Williams College Camp in Lake Geneva, a place my family vacationed every year until I was nine or ten years old - and haven't seen since.
