I write about exploring and growing, but I cloak it a veneer of vintage cameras and photography, and of historic roads and the things spotted on them, because I’m interested in those things. Sometimes I write about faith, nature, and historic preservation. But sometimes I go transparent, writing as directly as I can about the road I’m on and what I’m learning.
I like reading blogs like that, so I write on faith that you will, too.
These posts will tell you exactly what this blog is about.
Cameras — This page links to posts reviewing all of my vintage cameras.
The Michigan Road — I’ve written extensively about this 1830s Indiana road that connected the Ohio River to Lake Michigan.
The National Road — I’ve written even more extensively about this 1830s road that connects Cumberland, MD, to Vandalia, IL. You might know it by its modern name: US 40.
Bursting the nostalgia bubble — A story of a drive along an old, abandoned road, and how my fantasies about the simpler times they represented turned out not to be true.
The mechanics of forgiveness — Why forgive the wrongs you’ve suffered? For your own sanity.
Yes, Lord — God, please don’t put anything else on my plate; it’s too full already.
Three hundred square feet — I made my new normal in a tiny apartment after my wife said she didn’t want to be married to me anymore.
What the ice storm could have taught me about myself — The day I played hooky from work after an ice storm was so me.
I’m Jim Grey. I’m a Hoosier through and through. I’m in my late 40s, divorced, and raising teenage sons. I make software for a living (and infrequently blog about it over here). And I sometimes contribute to this site about old cars.
If you want to reach me directly, here’s a handy contact form. Your message will come straight to my e-mail inbox. I’ll respond to the e-mail address you type into the form.
