Edith and I are wrapping up our tour of Utah and Arizona. Besides the national parks, our travel led us to the family histories we uncovered in our talks while driving. Food for thought and further writing. By the way, one of my personal essays, "Windy Acres," is slated to appear in a forthcoming anthology of Wyoming writers, titled Blood, Water, Wind, and Stone. Our editor is arranging "gala events" of readings and appearances in a number of Wyoming locales. More on that later.  

Below is a pic I rediscovered, from six years ago when I stayed with the same atc hosts in Park City, Utah, with my friend, Qui Deng.
