We wanted a series of pictures that would depict career, yet found it could not be separated from the faces of wonderful people. Thus, the pictures reflect a life story: parents, education, siblings, wife, government, history, writing, web creation, children, and grandson. As a group, and individually, prefaced by two words: truly amazing! (Masthead not shown on mobile display.)
The poem. This site’s logo symbolizes the commitment to climbing and conscientious effort, as portrayed by Longfellow in his poem “The Ladder of Saint Augustine:”
The heights … reached and kept
Were not attained by sudden flight,
But they, while their companions slept,
Were toiling upward in the night.
