Hello! 

Thanks for visiting my website. I'm focusing on the blog now, while Allison and I gear up for our trip to Asia later this year. My published writing is also archived here, as well as travel photography from previous trips I've taken. 

Country roads / Lake Ontario

Country roads / Lake Ontario

Allison and I took Jolene back out on the road again, just for a couple of days, to a cottage on the shore of Lake Ontario, about an hour west of Rochester in a little town / village called Lyndonville (population 800 or so). It was a reminder, once again, of just how big New York state actually is, and how little of it I've been to, despite having lived here basically my whole life—although of course New York City is so far south and so insulated from the rest of the state that it almost doesn't qualify as "New York." But anyway, there we were, Allison and I, rambling around on these deserted roads in western New York state, in Amish country (we even saw a horse and buggy), because we couldn't stay inside the cottage the ENTIRE time, although it was cozy in there, me sitting on the couch reading "Animal Farm" and Allison in the armchair across from me reading "Lolita," and it felt good, to be relaxing there in this little lakeside cottage away from the rest of the world, but also to be back on the road again, driving around in some weird part of the country neither of us had ever been to before...
