By comparison, smoking a single cigarette reduces life expectancy by about 11 minutes.

Take me back down memory lane…


Rob Firchau’s blog @ The Hammock Papers, is a frequent stop. His recent post highlights one of James Young’s sketches which catapulted me back to my youth – farming, fields, barns, trees, birds, streams and tranquility.  I find his art to be simple (in the finest sense of this word), serene and soothing.  James is an artist from Alexandria, Ohio. You can find his portfolio at this link.  And his WordPress blog can be found at jamesyoungartist.com.
