My decompression is almost over.   It is hard to believe that a year ago I was preparing to leave Istanbul and return to the USA.  After arriving in the USA at the end of February it was time to decide . . . well . . . what’s next.  But first it was all about decompressing.  After so many years away from the USA it was time to re-familiarize myself with people, customs, attitudes and behaviors.  But the decompression is almost over.  So, while I decompress, as always, I think of where I have been.

may i introduce CHARLES HUMENRY CHARLES HUMENRY

Yes, it has been a long time since I last reached out to you all.  Since the last time I have returned to the US from that magical city of Istanbul.  Upon arriving back in Denver the decision was made to relocate to the West Coast of Florida.  We’ve gone from the mountains to the sea, and so far all is good.  More about Florida adventures in a subsequent post.  Today I would like to introduce you to a rare young…

On the road . . . . 

 On the road . . . . 

Hard to believe all the time and all the miles spent and travelled and all the people I have met, lost, or forgotten during this lifetime . . . .

been a long time 

Roger Holzheimer Been a while, I do believe . . . .

Once upon a time there was this kid from Cleveland, Ohio who decided there were other pastures to explore.  From an early age he experienced relocation from town to town and from state to state, finally ending up back in the city of his birth.  Although considered a "clever boy" his academic accomplishments fell short of what others deemed his true potential.  His father, a clever man himself, was good with his mind and with…
