new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

visit pretty much any cafe in greece and you will find people playing backgammon (here, called tavli) -- many cafes have several on hand for you to use.

i love this game, even if mr.g consistently, repeatedly destroys me. it is getting harder for him. we played quite a bit on vacation, but this is a shot of an old set i have at home, a big wooden one that makes a nice sound when you slam the orange and red pieces on the board, as one does when one gets emotional.
