Only the Wind Sings the Hymns by steverlfs
Only the Wind Sings the Hymns
A view of the broken stained glass window over the abandoned church in Cincinnati's West End. It is painful to see something of such great beauty abandoned and falling apart.

People Prayed Here Once by steverlfs
People Prayed Here Once
Abandoned church in western Cincinnati on Freeman Avenue near Findlay Street. How many Christmases were  celebrated here, how many brides walked down this aisle, how many infants were made part of the community, how many widows and mothers grieved losses of Antietam or Gettysburg or Verdun? Now it sits silent,  falling apart, those who prayed here are forgotten.

Wild times here! My fourth book, "Cincinnati Under Water: the 1937 Flood," is finally released. This weekend I will be at the prestigious Books by the Banks  event at the Convention Center. Amidst all of this excitement, my son Jordan has gone on yet another overseas adventures. Now he is volunteering in, of all places, Morocco.
At least things are not boring!
The book is finally out! "Art Deco Cincinnati" has hit the shelves, and my co-author Mr. Weise and I have done our first book signing. We even have a website to promote it: www.cincinnati-art-deco.com/.

I should say that (once again) the publisher screwed up my big joke. While showing a photo of the famous Flying Saucer house in Kentucky, my caption was to read: "Their old Kentucky home is the Jupiter 2". Well... they removed 'old', thus killing the Stephen foster reference, and then in parenthesis explained that the Jupiter 2 was from Lost in Space. Jokes are real funny when you explain them! As Dr. Smith would say, "Oh... the pain..."

But the book looks real good and the comments we have received have been very positive.
