At nine years old, I wasn’t really aware that I lived in an upper-class family. And at 16 when we went broke, I wasn’t really aware that we’d moved to the slums. I was only aware that our planet was a giant amusement park, chock full of rides and people, all with unique mysteries, often with the least popular being the most interesting. Now after half a century of travel to 50 states and 38 countries, I hope to share the joys and jolts of some of the world’s most intriguing merry-go-rounds, roller coasters and fun-houses, often hidden behind facades of poverty or political pish-posh. – I hope you enjoy the rides and reads.

“It’s not hard to write a really sad song in the winter in Cornwall, England.” Randy VanWarmer.
Kim, another that may apply, “Never mind the weather as long as we’re together. We’re living in the Wild West Show, Ho, Ho…”
Nor a happy one with the thought of spring…
“Just remember in the winter,
Far beneath the bitter snow,
Lies a seed that with the sun’s love,
In the spring, becomes… The Rose.”
