Time for basketball!

Basketball is life in Kansas. Where I grew up, going to a University of Kansas (KU) Jayhawks basketball game was a kind of a religious experience. James Naismith, the inventor of basketball, founded the KU basketball program in 1898. The atmosphere at Allen Fieldhouse, where the Jayhawks play their home games, is raucous and contagious. Whether you’re by the student section (wild!) or sitting in comfortable seats right behind the bench, you’re one with the fans and invested in the team.
“Rock, chalk, Jayhawk, KUUU-uuuuuu!”

Around the world … And settling in Montana

I found a stack of old pictures in a bin under my guest room bed last week and began reminiscing. Of particular interest were photos from my junior year of college. That was the year I spent traveling the world – first a study abroad semester in Ireland, and then an internship where I worked as a reporter in South Africa.
