Life near the river is almost always surprising.
Yes, that's me in the photo, being surprised by a photographer while taking a walk during a break at a Friends of O'Leno State Park Event. The picture was taken almost 20 years ago, and both the river and I are still here—although because I know that everything is in constant change, I always wonder: For how long?
For now, the change from winter to spring—and it's been a long, cold winter with many nights of freezes and hard freezes—is inspiring me to try new things like this blog. So, welcome; I hope you enjoy your time here near the river.
