A (soon-to-be) Published Photograph!


This photo of the Travertines at Pamukkale, Turkey will appear in "Bluelist 2008"! I've just signed an agreement with Lonely Planet Publications--and they're going to pay me for its use!!

Settling In


I'm back in California testing my newly acquired sheesha (shisha) or water-pipe or hookah or narghile packed with inaugural mint tobacco! I've usually smoked the ubiquitous apple sheesha (can refer either to the water-pipe or the tobacco) but I've branched out...

Now for a nice cup of helba tea (aka fenugreek, often served in Egyptian caf├ęs as a companion to the sheesha)...
