     Founded in 1983  Most teenagers are busy hanging out with friends, going to the beach, vacationing, and getting jobs during their summer vacation. I participate in these things as well but, in addition, I have been lucky enough to meet and work with people like Dizz. Dizz is a person unlike any...

  • Indiana July 184

    This summer, June to be exact, I took a trip with my grandmother to Indiana. This was no vacation, but a time to say goodbye. We were visiting my great grandmother, Wilma. This Wilma is no ordinary grandmother, but a beautiful soul that is only afraid of dying. She is 89 years old and doesn’t...

My family and I left for the canyon by train – departing on The Grand Canyon Railway from Williams, Arizona. The...

      Coming from the busy excitement of London, the Tamar Valley in Devon was a breath of fresh air. A small peninsula between Devon and Cornwall, it was a green paradise.

    This last summer I had the opportunity to travel to Guatemala with my school for a Spanish trip.  The goal of the trip was for our Spanish to improve and for us to learn about a different culture.  All of us who went came back with many memories, some good and some bad, plus knowing a lot more...

    I currently live in Franklin, Tennessee.  Franklin is a great community that has so much to offer anyone from musicians, historians or just someone who wants to enjoy a beautiful weekend in a quaint small town atmosphere.  One of the first things I would show a tourists coming to Franklin would...

  • RiverFace

    My eyes are the color of dark earth dug from deep under the ground, where it’s moist and warm. This is the well of my soul, where I hide away the things I have seen, and they become a part of me. Here stands the wild mountain I blazed mazes through as a young child. Here live childhood friends...
