Pecking Thumbs and the Golden Twinkle In Mother Earth's Eyes

Driving across the flat spine of the highland rim across an undulating but arrow straight stretch of Highway 70S I pondered my situation.

Party Girl at the Cedar Glade

' /> The other day I took a couple of friends to visit my research site at Flat Rock Nature Preserve just outside Murfreesboro.

Virgin Falls (excert)

' /> He bid them to have a good time and walked on up to the falls. Spectacular for their uniqueness of seemingly having no beginning and no end, he marveled at the sheet of water that fell, still impressive despite the reduced rain of late June. Humid Tennessee wrapped her green loving arms around... Sign in to see full entry.

Mother Earth Is a Pretty Girl

Snow capped the awnings of the buildings and nestled like a knit cap on the hollies and arborvitaes that landscaped the old Methodist church at the end of the block. Snow and ice had melded into a grey slush on Main Street of the college town where he found himself this winter afternoon. There had... Sign in to see full entry.

River Bio - A Photo Essay

It began somewhere over the Cumberland. That perfect blend of all things Southern, for me, it was all things Tennessee. Sitting in a blue Cheverolet pickup truck between my granny and papa. The dashboard lights shone green and the tires made that ripping sound as we hit the deck plates where the... Sign in to see full entry.

The Fish Artist

The Fish Artist Halfway through the original draft of A Field Guide I got excited and started looking for an illustrator.

It's Sauger Time In Tennessee

It’s sauger time in Tennessee. And when you’re after sauger there’s no better place to go than the Cordell Hull Dam in Carthage, Tennessee.
