Waiting In Wisconsin's Winter















It's been a while since I've posted-a lot longer than it has been in the past.  There are a couple of reasons for this.  First of all, I've been homebound (in a non travel mode, not confined within my home). That means I've been able to enjoy my local area and family  & friends who live nearby.  Lately I've taken advantage of Wisconsin's winter and snowshoed a lot. I've also joined a new photography group and have great hopes for it.  The second reason for not posting as regularly as before is a reason I've discussed before-lack of reader feedback.  It takes effort to maintain a blog, choose photos, and write. I really enjoy sharing both my thoughts and photos, but it's not very rewarding of there is no reader feed back. To be honest, I'm at the point where I don't give a damn about the numbers my visitor counter reads. More important to me is a comment about what I've written or the photos that I've chosen to post.  That said, I've found that Flickr is a better venue for my photos in terms of receiving regular feedback. My Flickr page is: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jadedirishgryphon/ if you're interested in my daily postings.

I'm not giving up with this blog.  In another month I'll be spending February in Marco Island, Florida and exploring the surrounding areas.  There will be photos and commentaries for my six weeks of travel.  Until then, I'll be hanging around Sheboygan Wisconsin USA enjoying nature and planning my Florida trip.   The above photos are ones I took while snowshoeing today after a series of snow storms.

Those of you who are reading this and have followed this blog for a while, thank you for your patience.  There is more yet to come. In the meantime, may your travels be interesting and enjoyable.

Best wishes for you in the coming new year.

Some of those pictures make me homesick for the midwest. Seems odd but I'd like a little more snow here in NM. I'm not complaining... we will be in the 50s most of next week and it hasn't been too cold but snow only lasts 12-18 hours on the ground.

I'll look for you on Flickr. I was wondering what you were up to. I've been staying home a little more after a frenzy of roadtrips.

Keep at it.

Hi Ken-Hope other aspects of NM compensate for the lack of snow. The time I've spent in AZ and NM made me homesick for Lake Michigan. I really need a body of water I can't see the other shore. Looking forward to FLA's Gulf Coast with its water and warmer temps. After that I'll be ready to deal with the rest of Wisconsin's winter. My Flickr posts are a mixed bag of images. Will blog again after more travel and something to say.
