  • Throughout my upbringing, my parents have tried to cultivate a love of travel and new experiences; when my mother became a travel agent two years ago, traveling took on a new dimension. Not only were we traveling to a number of unique and exciting places, but the whole family was immersed in the...

  •  “Bonding Time By Dean Morgan” By Luke Morgan                 In 2008, I graciously took my family on a vacation to Costa Rica, a beautiful little Central-American country where an idiot was not the president.  Here’s a tip for travelers: Do not take your family with you, especially your wife’s...

  • If it weren’t for the automated elevators I would have pressed every single enticing button, just to see every magical floor. It took three elevators just to get to the observatory, not that I minded. I wanted to study every button, wall, door, and inch of the floor. I was hypnotized by New York....

  • The morning heat drumed lazily on my forehead as I read The Sun Also Rises in a hammock on my aunts back porch.
