Hello, my friends! It’s been a busy summer, and I have a lot of photos to share. Highlights include: General Convention, where I got to hang out with over a thousand Episcopalians in beautiful Salt Lake City; Camp Canterbury, where I almost won a game of hide-and-go-seek, but was bested by Dean Craig Loya; and of […]Read more "Hello Again."
We’re almost halfway through Lent, friends! By now, your seasonal discipline is probably starting to really sink in and become incorporated into your daily routine. Maybe the loss of what you gave up, or the increase of what you took on, isn’t quite so jarring as it was just a few weeks ago. This is the […]Read more "Creighton & Norfolk"
It’s been a busy little stretch for this wanderer. No excuses, dear readers, and no complaints! But, I haven’t really had the time to sit down and write much lately. Rest assured, I’ll be back at it in no time, but here are some photographic updates to tide you over: Beautiful Trinity Memorial in Crete, where […]Read more "Updates from the Road"
McCook, Nebraska, is a town full of surprises. The first surprise that I discovered when I travelled there on Sunday is that the place is known for its year-round warm weather. Now, don’t get me wrong: I don’t mean that it’s actually warm in McCook all year long, just that it’s warmer than most other places in […]Read more "McCook, Nebraska"

You […]Read more "An Interview with The Nebraska Episcopalian"

Obviously, my favorite topic is usually Nebraska, and I’ve done a lot of reading recently! You are probably already […]Read more "Recommended Reading"
I recently took a quick wander along Highway 26, where a blanket of pristine snow covered some of Nebraska’s most iconic landscapes. It was quite a sight to catch Chimney Rock on the horizon as I followed a bend in the road. The monument that I know so well somehow looked totally different against a stark white […]Read more "Chimney Rock"
I wandered to Columbus, Nebraska, on the coldest day of the year. I know, I know…that’s not saying much, considering that it’s still the first week of January. Still, believe me when I say that my journey was very chilly–hanging out around just one degree Fahrenheit until later in the afternoon, when the mercury jumped to […]Read more "Columbus, Nebraska."
The fog was thick when I wandered to Central City this morning, providing a rather magical setting for my journey. Literary, one might even say. Actually, a literary mood for this trip was quite fitting. Central City, Nebraska, happens to be the setting to several fine novels by acclaimed author Wright Morris. One of Morris’ best-known works, […]Read more "Central City, Nebraska"
