US, FOREVER. This capture from a primitive webcam many years ago sums up the life Nancy and I have enjoyed for a long time. The effects, which simplify color variations and emphasize dark-to-light contrasts, seem well matched to our journey through time. We share all of our interests -- some in ways that clearly show which of us is more passionate, such as cooking, and others in a close togetherness, such as our travels and our devotion to that higher power that binds us all.
