    Figured I'd visit old friends. I pop in oft to look at maps without ever signing on which is selfish. My life has taken so many new directions many of wonder, freedom, and happiness. Some of loss, turmoil, and sadness. With great difficulty I had to separate myself in a sense and start anew...

    So I sold Out

    Greetings Pine Barren Citizens, I am remiss in participating in this wonderful forum so thanks all for keeping afloat.

    Unfortunate Sea Turtle

    Greetings All, I was walking the Boulevard's End Beach which I have been doing every Saturday Eve for quite awhile now. I need it very much as it restores my mind (As best as can be restored) Last night I ran into this poor dude. A good bit larger than the top of a 55 gallon drum. My best...

    It is so very easy to take things for granted. I had a long drawn out version of this day typed but scrapped it. There is so much help and kindness everywhere that needs it. With the high visiblity areas having a great deal of help, I knew immediately where I needed to be. Beloved Tuckerton...

    Mind Clearing

    In an effort to clear the mind and rid myself of a great deal of unrest, I travelled Boulevard both days two weeks ago. It did the trick yet wore off when I came back to the real world. That and the fact that I was eaten quite heartily by greenheads the size of quarters was rough. the intensity...

    Fred & ginger

    So you can get to this place best by river. It would be very difficult by land. It is fitting really, and best I think. All I could think of staring into this wonder was an image of Fred and Ginger, dancing cheek to cheek, spinning. The words in my head... "And my heart beats so that I can...

    In which I go out to see the morning, and ramble on as usual. Take a ride through the Pine Barrens in the wee hours of darkness on the way to a favored location. Even in the blackness of night or soft glow of the coming morn', there is much to marvel at. I'm reminded of a boy some 30+...

    Without going into my day, I was up Barnegat Light today, a town I am so fond of, and in speaking to one of the keepers of the Barnegat Light Museum & Garden, I found a little depressing news. This past year John Pearce retired from service and has moved on, no longer a fixture at the Zion...
