cowan, indiana

happy snowy morning!

it’s been fun for me to go through the photographs i’ve taken in the last year, it’s really encouraged me to keep working on the blog. i took this  photo last winter during a snowstorm. it’s of a church window in the little town of cowan. cowan is about 1 1/2 miles north of oakville. i went to school there (1980) and now my daughter sierra will graduate in 2011. where does the time go?

we were living right outside the beltway in wash. d.c. when i decided to move the kids and myself back to indiana. that was 10 years ago. i had a hard time feeling comfortable in an urban environment. it’s one those things that make up our being that cannot be changed. my kids were just starting school and it was hard for me to send them out into that everyday.

looking back now, i think i made a good decision. the kids are good and so am i.



ps cold, snow, and a strong west wind here on the prairie.

recently, i was invited to a gathering at a friends home who lives nearby. it was a lot of fun and i met some really nice folks. eventually, everyone ended up out at the pond. it was a nice evening;  fishing, conversation, making new acquaintances. i took advantage of the evening light to snap a few of these photographs.
thank you ryan and jacque, it was a nice evening.
