The Long Way Home


We are all strangers in a strange land, longing for home, but not quite knowing what or where home is. We glimpse it sometimes in our dreams, or as we turn a corner, and suddenly there is a strange, sweet familiarity that vanishes almost as soon as it comes…–Madeleine L’Engle, from  The Rock That Is Higher



A travel and art diary where I share photography, vintage ephemera and personal history, as well as musings on the weird, wonderful things my husband Jeff and I find on the road.

Strangely enough, your way of seeing feels like an extension of my own… my own seeing or my own dreams, I’m not sure. I might become a rabid fan.

That’s so funny that you mention this because when I saw your pictures on flickr, I felt the same way (I was too shy to say, so I’m glad that you did!). Your Saint John photos are so haunting and lovely. It’s a gift to be able to see what is familiar as if through someone else’s eyes – and that’s what your photos do.
Thanks so much for the comment, it’s so nice to read!

Hi Lisa – we’ve never met, but I think I may have worked with and been friends with your mom when we were in high school. By any chance is your mom’s maiden name Linda Plaikner? Please contact me, even if I’m wrong. Thanks very much.

Judi – how nice! My mother would love to hear from you. I contacted you this morning about how to do that.

I love ‘It will melt someday’ – beautiful snowy branches, so understated.

I love the blog and love how the photos really expand the experience. I can’t wait for more trips and more things to blog about. More things like the kecksburgh UFO site!
