Late Summer Melange

It’s been a busy summer at work, as I’ve been shooting and editing Syracuse University-related video projects. Last week, a colleague and I traveled to Washington, DC and Baltimore to conduct interviews in the District and in Charm City. Here are a couple of iPhone photos I took outside our hotel in downtown Baltimore, across the street from Oriole Park at Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles.

I also wanted to point out that I had a couple of essays published online this week. The first was about an episode of low potassium and periodic paralysis I suffered while living in Toledo, Ohio, in the 1990s. The piece was published on the Be Yourself blog at Medium. It’s entitled Pursuit of Gratitude. And here’s a photo of the medication I now need to take twice a day to compensate for my condition of hypokalemia (low potassium).

And lastly, an essay about my mother’s love of the 1965 movie musical The Sound of Music was published by The Millions. The story is called Comfort Objects.

Thanks for listening to my ramblings and for reading my stories. Enjoy the rest of the warm summer weather before the cold air takes over (at least here in central New York).
