DreamMap Final Edit

DreamMap is finally done. The final edits have been accepted and final proofs have been ordered. The proofs are really just to confirm the job being done by the printer. I fully expect to be able to release it by Halloween!

Jake Webber should be feeling great. He was in the prime of life. He was a young successful corporate attorney in Pittsburgh and lived in a posh Shadyside townhouse. But Jake didn’t feel great. Jake had a secret. Since childhood Jake had vivid and powerful dreams that were so realistic he sometimes had
trouble distinguishing between his dreams and the “real world.”

His new pro bono case had Jake feeling even more uncertain and questioning not only his own reality but the very structure of existence!

Things I’ll Miss—Moonlit Nights

If you follow this blog you know that for some time we have been trying to sell our house and move back to Pittsburgh. Our tablets are done (DreamMap publishing in October) and it is time to come off the mountain. Of course moving is hard work so I haven’t been taking new pictures and have been thinking of how to keep the blog “alive” during this time of transition.

Moonlit waterfalls are beautiful wether they exist in nature or are created. The moon is from our back yard, the waterfall is part of Bushkill Falls about twenty miles away.

Things I’ll Miss—Autumn in the Poconos

If you follow this blog you know that for some time we have been trying to sell our house and move back to Pittsburgh. Our tablets are done (DreamMap publishing in October) and it is time to come off the mountain. Of course moving is hard work so I haven’t been taking new pictures and have been thinking of how to keep the blog “alive” during this time of transition.

Although our new house is only two blocks from one of the largest parks in Pittsburgh (Frick Park) I will really miss the mountains in the autumn. One of the good things about Pittsburgh though is that besides having a wonderful park system the city is only a short drive to a wide variety of state parks. It will be fun exploring them in the autumn to find more scenes like this.

One of Life’s Great Joys

As you begin and move through life you have the opportunity to experience many joys. I will do us all a favor and not enumerate them. When I became the Father of a little girl I began to think about the joys she would bring our family through her life. I began to experience through her eyes of what it was like to be a little girl. I realized that if we were lucky in life I may actually get to walk her down the aisle at her wedding and deliver a toast. Well we were lucky and I got to that this August at the Honore Ballroom at the Palmer House in Chicago. A wedding is a sea change event and this was one was no different. Having this honor was one of the greatest and most important moments in my life and I will remember it always. (Image courtesy of Leah Moyers Photography)

Things I Will Miss–Black Bears

Although our new house is only two blocks from one of the largest parks in Pittsburgh (Frick Park) we won’t have quite the variety of wildlife we have in The Poconos. Oh sure there will be deer, rabbits and maybe even some fox but I don’t think they have black bears in Frick Park. It is always exciting to see bears in the wild and I will miss their occasional visits.

The Birdman of Pittsburgh

We have sold our house and are preparing to move ourselves back home to Pittsburgh. We left Pittsburgh in 1978 and have lived in State College PA, Dallas Texas, Smithtown Long Island,Montclair New Jersey and the Pocono Mountains since then. I took this the year before I left in Market Square. We always called this guy “The Birdman”. I wonder why?
