We like to take our dogs for walks at the Cain Center. They enjoy the run and we need the exercise. We have discovered that one of our dogs likes to climb trees. There are two trees in particular that are natural ramps that make it easy for her to scamper up into the limbs.read more

My first sabbatical, I studied in Oxford. Next week, I leave for several weeks of writing and study in San Francisco.read more

I could hear his mother screaming at him, “Run, run, run”, but this little lizard wanted to live on the wild side, and tried to hide in plain sight.read more
