About me

Introduction I am a writer and a photographer. This Friendly Village reflects the people and experiences that make up my village. The thought that all of us belong to a few different villages. How the web connects us all. Some are local, some far away and some overlap. Some are collections of friends and family or those I share a certain interest or piece of history with. Named for all of the above and a favorite childhood book, This Friendly Village is about discovery. It's about the richness of life-long learning and the comfort of doing what you know.
