  • Birthright Citizenship

    Since 2015, the idea of ending birthright citizenship has been on my radar. Those favoring anti-immigration, view the bestowal of citizenship on children of foreign citizens as a problem. In their mind, pregnant women are invading the United States specifically to have children and force the country to keep the parents. (It may delay, but the…

  • MS-13

    Donald Trump references an international gang as the reason to secure the southern United States border. He claims the porous border allows members of this gang to enter the country at will. The refugees trying to enter through the southern border are from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. MS-13 dominate these countries. The refugees are…

  • Resolved

    Yesterday was the 100th day of the year, so I figured I would figure out my progress with those pesky resolutions. Complete unfinished novel series. I finished the Harry Potter series. I am simultaneously working on the Sword of Truth and Ender series. The Shadow Rising was such an awful book I gave up on…

  • Sunset Over the Cafe

    Sunset Over the Cafe, originally uploaded by Ezra S F. A pretty sunset was a good way to end a good day. I need more endings like this. I’m a little young to retire though. Meh.

  • Please Do Not Walk on Dunes

    PLEASE DO NOT WALK ON DUNES Originally uploaded by Ezra S F This is a dune next to the drive to the eastern beach area of Fort Clinch State Park on the north end of Amelia Island. Florida’s obsession with people staying off the dunes amuses me. The two beaches I usually visit are Jekyll…

  • ‘Dillo

    I was able to get within about seven feet of this armadillo. Apparently my calm approach while its back was to me presented no concern. Mom a couple hundred feet away talking loudly to Nannie about me was enough to get some attention. We were outside Fort Clinch State Park down in the moat. When…

  • 2011 Resolutions

    My resolutions for 2010 involved a lot of reading, improving my cooking repertoire, improving my photography repertoire, and having fun in the present. In goal accounting for 2010, 2 were successful and 2 not. Except for the reading goal, the other three were well outside my comfort zone.  I forgot my statement for the resolutions in 2009.…

  • Jekyll and Okefenokee

    The wind plus cold was quite chilly indeed. This probably explains why I only saw one other person on the beach who was much more bundled up than myself. The next two photos are of birds in flight at the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge.

  • Palazzo By Day

    Palazzo By Day, originally uploaded by Ezra F. My second favorite shot of the whole trip. The palm tree placement was intentional. The Sun was reflected off the windows down at me.
