happy critters



during the last century or so, it has been difficult to focus on anything useful, what with the covids, the horrors of trumpistan, and a totally insane election season — but we can see the end of all of that now:  the recent equinox has surely begun to grow the light again

in the meantime, i have, as recently as the present day, finished messing with my latest projects: atlanta's indian trails, which maps trails delineated in the state's first surveys of this part of the world after we stole it from the muscogee in 1821; improvising the peachtrees, which is a history of peachtree street and peachtree road from the time god made dirt to recent memory; and looking for the road to standing peach tree, which is just what it says, a guide to the route of the original 1814 peachtree road as it exists today 

i have hard copies as well as web versions of them all done and posted, but the seeds of all three were in what started with research for a history of midtown atlanta in 2014, which i may or may not pick up again
