At about 500,000 to one million years old, this geological rarity is the result of a collapsed cave roof. When I first […]

Green Day

Green Day

The sky was dark and ominous, no amount of light could seep through the clouds. Rain bounced off of jackets in droplets and dripped from soaked hair as fans waited in anticipation for the band they had come to see. As the thunder growled and the lightning split the sky, fans screamed and bounced on their heels. Chants coursed through […]

The Teahouse

The Teahouse

An arbor made of tired wood looms overhead, reaching to half the height of the trees surrounding it, as my car passes under it. It’s dark, but warm texture, welcomes visitors to a safe haven like area. Tires crunch against the gravel as I look out the window to catch a glimpse of the sign hanging from it. There, etched […]
