Buffalo, bears and elk oh my!
Posted: July 01, 2013 - 5:36 pm

It was a dizzy, stomach dropping ride throughout the curvy roads of Yellowstone National Park. And while my body was a little unsure of how to manage standing up on a moving, full passenger tour bus, my legs braced on the side of the seats and my heavy camera poised and ready to take pictures, the excitement in me grew at the possibility of seeing wildlife in its most natural and raw setting.

After two years of trying to figure out what the bumper sticker, "And a guinea pig ain't a prairie dog," meant, I think I've finally uncovered the truth.

Some of my best summer memories rest in the afternoons spent at Vacation Bible Schools, orVBS as it is known, in my community.

Breakfast Club state of mind
Posted: June 11, 2013 - 5:32 pm

As I helped my friend Kristen, a senior at Scottsboro High School this past year, get her cap and gown ready to go on graduation night, I was struck with this uneasy realization of just how much changes from the time you walk across the platform and receive your diploma.

It seems like only yesterday that I stumbled into Amy Skipper's kindergarten class at Brownwood Elementary School to meet a group of young boys and girls just embarking on the journey that is school.

We are all Gatsby chasing the impossible

I was introduced to F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel "The Great Gatsby," while nestled among the confines of a high school English classroom where the teacher allowed the words of great literature to drip off the page and ignite promise and persistence into the lives of those listening.

Some things should be spoken in love, not hate
Posted: May 07, 2013 - 5:00 am

Monday morning's Facebook news among my college friends and former Tuscaloosa co-workers was that the religiously out-spoken Westboro Baptist Church has set a May 18 date for picketing at the University of Alabama.
