Hello again!

I have been so busy with my writing and my other three blogs, I haven't posted here for almost a year. I think it's time to change that. If you're interested, you can find my other blogs at olbigjim , The Left Wright Brain, and Canaan Dogs. In olbigjim, you'll find author interviews, book reviews, and lots of other goodies. The Left Wright Brain consists mostly of random writings and excerpts from my published book, New Yesterdays, and the sequel, a work in progress. Canaan Dogs is semi-dormant at the moment. It's for excerpts from my "Magnum Opus".

Now then, just sit back and relax, and leave the driving to me. Let's visit some of the highlights of Jordan as a way of getting back on track, shall we?

This is the stage area of an ampitheatre in Jerash (known in biblical times as Jerasa). Notice how well preserved it is! At fixed times all during the day a group of Bedouin musicians entertain guests with drums and bagpipes. Yes, bagpipes!

A shepherd, near where I live, tending his flock. Even though we live in the capital city, we still have to be wary of sheep and goats in the streets. It sure makes for interesting driving!

We're surrounded by olive trees, many of which date all the way back to the Roman Occupation when Jesus lived and roamed in this area.

I hope this post will whet your appetite and make you want to come back for more! I'll be posting here again, once or twice a month. Be sure to subscribe to the blog to make sure you don't miss a single post!

Is there something particular in Jordan you'd like to know more about? Send me an email or make a comment here and I'll get right on it!

Welcome back to The Other Holy Land!
