I tried to come up with a fun or interesting introduction to these photos but am way too jet-lagged for inspiration to strike. When I stopped and counted out the hours, I realized my travels home amounted to 38 hours in transit door to door. As I write this I feel as though a bowl of oatmeal and my brain have a lot in common. Going through photos this afternoon was my attempt to revive my mental energies without actually exerting any physical energy.

Many of my favorite photos and virtually all of those from the service work are on my camera phone…the cord for which is upstairs. I am downstairs. This means it would require physical energy to get those photos onto my computer right now. That’s not happening…so photos of our group and service work will have to wait.  In the mean time, here are a few random shots I liked. These aren’t big sweeping shots of locations, just some photos I like for one reason or another:
