Who do I think I am?

All that we are arises with our thoughts

  - the Buddha


Me, me, me and me ...

I'm a retired, physically-challenged geologist / environmentalist / teacher who has enjoyed making music all my life, and photography for most of it.  Besides my family and friends, music and Nature have always been my primary inspiration and motivation.  Lately, my numerous health problems have been making it difficult at best to play and record, so I've renewed my old photography hobby.  All the photographs at this site were taken since June 2016.


I haven't been able to record music now for a few years. Some day I hope to improve to the point where I can play and record music again on a regular basis.  In the meantime, I'm a husband and father, doing my physical therapy, and making as many photographs as I can.

I often think how precious life is.  It's amazing anything exists at all.  I could have been a rock flying through cold, empty space ... instead I'm a conscious, metacognitive being.  What are the chances?
