I Shutter at the Thought!

The author of this blog is Earl Harris, and here's a little bit about him in his own words: "I grew up in what was once a small town in Florida. I say 'once', because a very rich rat came along and changed all that literally overnight. But as a small town kid, I looked forward to the excitement of 'Rodeo Day', when all the students in the county school system got free tickets and a day off of school to attend the Silver Spurs Rodeo. Every year, I could smell and taste the wonderfully cheesy, greasy pizza from the Pizza King's cart days before I actually beheld it.

Upon my return from Austria, a chain of events ensued that didn't end up with me attending the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and pursuing photojournalism, as I'd dreamed of doing. I exchanged that dream for 30 years of corporate monotony and tedium. And at last, the opportunity came to make another exchange; one more aligned with an old, but never dim dream..."
