Follow The Petrified Forest     The first souvenir Kate and I ever bought was a small slice of petrified wood, in Arizona, thirty years ago. It was a stop, on that first road trip, which I had wanted to make, as I remembered visiting the national park, as a child, when we lived in...

Follow The Ducklings Dressed Up For Winter     This is not an old post card, in the least, but it certainly is one of my most favorite of images. I love Nancy Schon’s bronze duckling sculpture, which is a tribute to Robert McCloskey’s story, Make Way for the Ducklings.  The sculpture lives at...

Follow Greece     I bought this collection of postcards in 1991, on my second trip to Greece. For many years, they hung framed, in my kitchen; I am not sure why I repurposed their frame, but it may be time, at the very least, to find a new frame for them, as I...
