Ithaca Retrospect

Ithaca Retrospect

All is pretty quiet on the Alabaman home front here and our surroundings are visually pleasing but monotonous (use the satellite view on Google maps for Fort Rucker- you’ll see).

So what better moment to get into the thick of a series of retrospects.  I love both real travel and armchair travel so I hope any viewer can also enjoy virtually visiting these places I am about to set off and reminisce about…..

I moved to Ithaca to attend Cornell for an MA in Historic Preservation. I finished up a few years ago and it remains to be seen what I shall do with this degree.  I suppose I could have just stuck to taking pictures of old buildings, but I had that academic hungering and the experience of living in Ithaca was more than the icing on the cake for this decision.  It was very much the inner frosting and batter as well.

Ronja & Zed

These two cuties were adopted from the Tomkins County Animal Shelter.  Ithaca born.  Ronja has since been roaming the country with me, somewhat to her homebody nature chagrin. Zed adopted an awesome kitty human mum (roomie in Ithaca) and they now live in Florida, where I gander he is possibly a very competent hunter.
