This is a bridge to cross, a travel blog crossing to other destinations: contemporary literature, art and history. That would be Renaissance art history, and news and trivia and images that speak toward a meeting of the present cultural wanderer with some troubadour of the past at mid span.
Oh, my name is Roy Scarbrough. This is my personal blog and it’s just getting started.
About me: I am a lot things. I do journalism. I do freelance writing. I’ve written content for several travel books. I do photo-journalism and artsy pictures. The journalism is one of the things I have made my living off and on over the years. I’ve worked for little newspapers, and big newspapers. I also write some fiction. I talk about art and literature, and the Italian Renaissance. I ask questions of the experts and semi-famous, and try to get answers. I walk around Florence and Rome when I can.
These days, I drive forklifts in Oregon when I’m not in Italy.
