Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.


Where's your dirt from?

Here is a photo-essay by Burningbird detailing a trip into the Ozarks. The fascinating part for me is the story of the "Missouri dirt". Like many folk-tales, it's simplistic, but it's satisfying and you want it to be true.

My dirt just might be from Texas, but I'm not sure yet (which I guess means it isn't). The places I've found the most peace in have been here in Houston, but I've gone through some of my hardest times and done more thinking here than anywhere else, so I think that makes sense.
