ChrisWhite 1 Resized

by Donovan Wheeler photos by Caitlin Fogle Like a lot of winding back routes in western Indiana, Baker’s Camp Road cuts through thick copses of sycamore, oak, and poplar.  Wide enough for two passing vehicles, it’s a road best traveled alone.  Sit in the middle.  Straddle the crown of the ...

An Every Year Resolution

Sculpture by Bill Wolfe called Max Ehrmann at the Crossroads.

I don’t make New Year resolutions. I used to, but typically forgot about whatever false promise I’d made to myself by St. Patrick’s Day. When friends and family ask me, every year, what I will “resolve” to do in the coming months the answer is usually some kind of smart-ass ...
