Light Conversations

Just as I was hitting the lights at our hotel tonight, my beau’s daughter said, “Did you know if you close your eyes before turning the lights off, you’ll still be able to see when you open them again?” So I tried it. Expecting to have a fun little chat about confirmation bias and the […]

On my way to Zion!

… to the canyon my Great-great-great Grandpa Isaac Behunin named! It happens to be the most glorious place on earth, if you ask me. Photos won’t do it justice, but I’ll post a few here anyway if I can get some. For now, enjoy this sunset pic from our drive 🙂
