By S. J. Brown Have you ever wondered what goes into a field trip for a wildlife photographer? January is when I plan out large portions of my year.

Looking Back at 2016

By S. J. Brown Since 2016 is almost over I thought I would reminisce a bit.  For several years I have been sharing my images on Facebook.   I share a new photo each Sunday so there are many photos that my blogging buddies don’t get to see.  So I thought I would include the 10 … Continue reading Looking Back at 2016

Fork in The Road

By L.Leander, Author of Fearless Fiction I received the letter "F" for the A-Z Blog challenge.  Since my maiden name is Flory I thought about writing about that, but the Forked Road seemed better-suited to this blog.  I hope you enjoy it.

Turn Setbacks into Stepping Stones
