Jewel of the Prairie

On my way back from teaching Composition & Photography in Maine, I met Phyllis and our son Mathew in Iowa, where we spent the better part of a week while Mathew attended an early orientation program at college. We stayed in a loft apartment in downtown Grinnell, a small city with the motto “Jewel of the Prairie,” and enjoyed our time there immensely. But, as always, it is great to be home!
