Welcome!

This is my personal website, currently containing 1,280 pages of essays, photography, and more! I use it as a live journal. Here you'll find my travel photos and stories, autobiographical episodes, samples of my writing and music, and more!

You may browse my site by Timeline (the entries that include dates, will appear in chronological order); you can view it hierarchically ("Explore"), by Locations (seriously, check that out as it presents my essays on a world map showing where they're about), by Topics (keywords) and even a simple alphabetical listing by Titles.

My site is now Mobile-Friendly. Any page you read here, will be as readable and functional on your cell-phone or tablet as it is on a full-sized monitor.

I am still renovating this site, re-checking spelling and syntax and upgrading the photos, which had been compressed to save space, to their full-glorious resolution! If there's a page you'd like to see but appears to be broken, I haven't gotten to it yet. You can speed things up by sending me an email letting me know the title of the page that's giving you trouble. It would also help to know what browser you are using.

What's New on This Site

I've added a slide show feature for photos. Click (or tap) on a picture in any article, and it will display in full-screen mode. From there, you can go to the next or previous picture by clicking on the arrows at the side of the photo, or using the arrow keys. (The slide show doesn't loop; if you scroll past the first or last picture, slide show mode will simply exit.) By default, any caption or description associated with the photo will show up; but clicking (or tapping) the photo itself will turn that off; to turn it back on, click (or tap) again.

If you can… …remember the title of a page you think is somewhere on this site, you can find it by browsing through every title of every page on this site. If you are on a high-speed Internet connect, you should try asking for 1000 entries at once (it defaults to 10). You'll likely be amazed at how fast they load!
