A quick trip to Washington…

Last weekend I made a quick — four night — trip to Washington, D.C. The goal was to attend the 2017 Equality March.

Although I’ve become quiet politically, I still have strong opinions about being liberal. With the election of Donald Trump, […]

Looking back… Today in my history!

Now that I no longer have anything left in storage Stateside (although my Mom might beg to differ), all of my precious belongings are with me in Berlin – the most precious of which are memories.

Like, for example, my calendars – from 1994 through 2002, I kept paper calendars with all my exams, appointments, […]

Somehow I’m still not jaded…

A few years ago I was in Washington DC, walking down the street, playing the part of tourist, when I came upon some locals – people playing football in the park, jogging down the streets, carrying groceries home.

I was envious – these were people who get to live every day in a fabulous city […]

What you (we) missed…

This has been an incredibly great trip—productive on the one hand, fun on the other.

Unfortunately it has to come to an end and I am heading back to Weimar today—getting home Monday morning. Home is, of course, a wonderful place and I although I slept in excellent beds at two different Hiltons, there is […]

All Against H8

The Washington Monument and Pride

For the past week, save one incident, I have had the most incredible luck imaginable.

Last Saturday I lucked into Berlin’s mp3 Experiment, Pittsburgh was a far more interesting city than I could have anticipated, and I was in Washington DC for today’s march against California proposition 8, coordinated […]

DC 2 NYC

My time in Washington is done, and it’s time for New York City.

I never got around to downloading the rest of my photos from DC, so you’re probably going to have to wait until I am back at home for me to download the photos from my camera and then upload them to the […]

Frühmorgen

I know that I usually leave my house shortly after 7:30 each morning, but usually that follows a 10 or 10:30 bedtime. Last night I got to bed at midnight and I was out the door at 6:30 in order to get to the DuPont Circle Starbucks by 7, to make sure that there was […]

What’s Next?

I’ve done a lot of walking since getting to DC—visiting a lot of places and doing a lot of things: Arlington, Vietnam Veterans War Memorial, World War II Memorial, and Korean War Memorial—to name a few.

All of this time I’ve been wondering to myself the very question posed in the comments by Ed: What […]
