Places Traveled ~

Pearl S. Buck, Birthplace, Hillsboro, W.Va.

“Write a novel if you must, but think of money as an unlikely accident. Get your reward out of writing it, and try to be content with that.”  ~ Pearl S. Buck, (1892 – 1973).

Pearl Buck was a prolific writer and the first American woman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1938 for The Good Earth. She was the daughter of missionaries and spent the majority of her formative years in China as well as her early adult life. Her Chinese name is Sai Zhenzhu. She wrote extensively in her novels about the plight of women, the poor, and social injustices.

This image was taken while on a rural road trip through West Virginia. I wasn’t expecting this to be here, so it was a great surprise! The stately rural home is now a museum. It was not only an interesting experience, but educational, and the staff was so welcoming. The natural beauty of this part of West Virginia is so breathtaking and is a journey I would love to take again. Oh, and don’t forget to stop along the way for a slaw dog, a menu specialty throughout West Virginia.  ~

Photography ~ Places I’ve Been

Glasgow Cathedral or High Kirk, Glasgow, Scotland.

Here are some images from my 2016 trip through Scotland. I captured these with my old Nikon D50, which I have kept as my backup camera. I was so surprised when we arrived at Brig O’Doon… I thought it was only an imaginary place! I am so intrigued by the centuries and centuries of history when I travel in Europe and all the beautiful sites. I have no idea of who painted the man with the bird on the building or why, but it is just beautiful. If you know more, please enlighten us.

Photography ~ Places I Have Been

One of the things I miss most about todays world is the ability to freely travel. There is no better way to connect with other people than to share time, food,  and learn about their world.  It is so meaningful to share hospitality and just being in the moment with another within their own culture. I believe it is true that our world shrinks and can become more caring as we learn about each other’s culture and people.  While on one of my many walks,  I just happened to come across these beautiful doors while exploring about Rome. To say there is so much to find in Rome is an huge understatement! This is truly where  I learned and understood the phrase ‘Rome was not built in a day’.  Besides all the beautiful art, architecture, and friendly people… they have great music, wine, coffee, and make a great margarita to just sit and sip in one of their lovely piazzas. Yes, I enjoyed everything about Rome, including actually walking on the very same road as some of the greatest Roman rulers, and so much more. Oh, someday  to go again. ~
