six year old soccer played well

Vicarious Vitality: Watching Them Run

Yes, we have two grand daughters, and it is only because the older one had a NIGHT game that she has not been featured in this back to back g-dau series.The take-home from watching the energy expended on the field was that "there was a time" and it does not seem so long ago, when energy and strength were boundless and pain a stranger.

I got my first camera, a Minolta, in 1970--the same month I got married and started grad school at Auburn University. As a recent convert to field botany, I needed a way to share what I saw in the wild.Forty years and a half-dozen cameras later, I've shared my image … Continue Reading ››
