Rainy day photos from the resort we hunkered down in for one night. Managed to get in a half mile swim in that lonely pool (the indoor one-pictured through window is the outdoor closed for the season one!)

East Stroudsberg, PA ice cream parlor, pie bakery, restaurant and local jewelry designer and artist. I ate none of it!

Foggy landscape through the Poconos. All Iphone photos while driving…

"Be Careful What You Growl For"

"Be Careful What You Growl For"

I am for one, proud that President Obama took a stance and the political risk in support of total civil rights today that is diametrically opposed to Romney’s and most Republicans. Even if I personally think that alternative lifestyles are just that and can also express, love, unity and commitment in other ways that do not necessarily echo those of traditional, conventional couples. In celebration I am posting this photo I shot several years ago of my very happily longtime married friends, Jason and Michael. I hope they are feeling the love and acceptance tonight!
