Random Quote

All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that it all happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. if you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.
-- Ernest Hemingway

Old Photos - 12/2/2007


My high school friend, Rik Schwinden, took this photo in a park in Des Moines when we reconnected several years after high school. I've since lost track of him somwhere in Minnesota.

This is what I looked like when he knew me in high school.

That picture was taken by Mike Langley, high school friend and a musician from Sioux City, Iowa, when we were hanging at his parents' house. I traded a few email with Mike a couple of years ago. He had a web site, but that appears to no longer be active. He still Googles though...

Funny how we lose track of people through the years, and then occasionally intersect.

Digitizing Photos


Last night, I started digitizing a few photos. I think I'll spend a few minutes a day doing that with all of my old photos.

Here are a few:

This will keep these memories permanent for me.

In the last picture, on the right, is my Aunt Onie. The woman was like a second mother to me. It's easy to miss her.
