My goal is to tell stories that show what the people of Central New York and Northeast Pennsylvania have achieved over the course of history. To show how new institutions arose which improved life not just locally but on the international scale. To illuminate how the choices made by our neighbors and their ancestors have influenced the world in unexpected but highly positive ways. For part of the attraction is the whimsy of a good story and part is to stimulate action in the present and future when we realize how creatively our neighbors have solved problems in the past. These ideas inform my stories and are intended to drive readers to put such solutions in place in their own lives and work. We breath the same air, eat the same foods, and encounter the same natural world (more or less) as our ancestors did. Perhaps these stories will spur us to emulate their examples of creative problem-solving for today and tomorrow.
All of these sites are within a 100 mile radius of my studio in Vestal, New York. Join me now and explore the people that have made Central New York and Northeast Pennsylvania a world-class distillery of ideas into action…………..
