“You used to ride on the chrome horse with your diplomat
Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat
Ain’t it hard when you discover that
He really wasn’t where it’s at
After he took from you everything he could steal.-”
Like A Rolling Stone- Bob Dylan

Talk about making Granny happy! Thank you so much. I enjoy creating this space. Even more, I love being able to connect globally with so many interesting people and learn of their lives, interact, and watch their own websites grow and thrive. It is pure magic. A gift I never considered even possible for most of my life as the technology did not exist.
Two new bookshelves, only a few more boxes until I am unpacked, five pots of privet to grow out to learn topiary, reading The Art of War- Sun Tzu- the Thomas Cleary hard copy translation, A Reporter’s Life by Walter Cronkite. Evenings with old Woody Allen movies, Hollywood Ending, and Broadway Danny Rose up next for shared viewing pleasure. Giving
Bob Dylan another listen, and had quite forgotten just how much I enjoyed some of his music, or how globally relevant it feels today.
Binge hiking, the weather and availability of so many places to explore making it impossible to remain indoors. Photographing hikes, being inspired and invigorated by entire days spent with nature. I am excited to share in a separate photo essay what was a colorful day out and about yesterday, up Oak Creek Canyon to the Snowbowl to photograph the fall foliage. Been embracing every moment in a stretch of perfect days.
And again, thank you for your part in making JoHannaMassey.com such a success. All my best to you. Be safe and have a peaceful week coming.
