A little break

I've got a number of projects which are calling out for my undivided attention, so the time has come for me to take a little blogging break. Stay safe & well everyone. © Debra Carey, 2020

Rolling Stone

By which I mean the lyrics of the Bob Dylan number - or living the life of a nomad - rather than Mick Jagger & pals. Himself is a minimalist by nature - camera equipment aside - and regularly expresses a hankering to live in a van (something I may have mentioned to one or... Continue Reading →
