Moving Forward

I haven't created a post in over a year....so many changes....."shifts," rather than anything radical. October 2018, a good month spent in Colorado. It began with several days in Colorado Springs, much of it spent working with Bonnie Olson on her father's (L.H. "Ben" Benschneider) archive.
The work isn't completed, but possibly will be later this year....placing much of it in the collections of Colorado College, and possibly the Pioneer Museum and Pikes Peak Library.

Hooked up with my pal Chester Murphy in Trinidad, and then we visited Bishop's Castle, the Great Sand Dunes, Colorado Gator Farm and Bob and Maggie Sauer in Durango.




A great deal of joint work occurred in 2019, as Raven had her left ACL surgically repaired in January, and her right ACL in November. 



She is now the bionic dog.... 

       Oh, and I got a new hip in October which, in retrospect, was about five years over due....Now, I'm pain free and much more mobile!

                                                         Might was well throw that one in, too!

2020 is shaping up to bring new adventures, which I'm eagerly looking forward to experiencing.

A New Direction

Marshall and I went to Alaska together in 2010. The vehicle that we traveled in (Marshall's Sprinter) was so enjoyable that I bought one in late summer 2011, and have begun to make frequent trips around the west. Right now, Marshall and Bonnie are in Marfa, Texas (on Facebook, check out "A Month in Marfa.") Next month, we're going to begin and post a website of postcards between artists, dating back to the early 1970s. I'm probably going to launch a new blog in the next couple of months.....travels around the west, and my work on the archives of photographers L.H. ("Ben") Benschneider, and Robert C. Bishop. Stay tuned.

Toad River Lodge, Saturday 28 August - POSTSCRIPT

A A collection of over 6,800 hats stapled to the ceiling throughout the restaurant....and growing. One of the stories associated with the place is the origin of the name....The Alaska highway was constructed in 10 months, 1942-43. One version of "Toad River" is that the engineers had to tow supplies and materials across at that particular point, and it somehow got bastardized from "towed" to "toad." There are many such strange stories and origins to the naming of places in Alaska.              (I mean, why was Denali originally called McKinley? (other than his recent assassination....he never visited the place.)
