I take a lot of pictures.

We are not even at mid-month, and I have already taken 710 pictures in September and that is a LIGHT month. Over the last few years I take between 20,000 to 40,000 pictures a year. That is a fair number of pictures.

Though you may THINK you see a lot of pictures on this blog, you only are getting to see the tip of the iceberg. For every picture I publish, I probably have 30 that I don’t have time and room to publish.

Excess pictures is a major issue after events, e.g., last night’s UNH ‘Mid-Autumn Festival‘ or last week’s ‘Laconia Multicultural Festival‘. Time is an issue too. These days, severely strapped for time due to work on my latest book (on ‘conclaves’), I just don’t get around to posting as many pictures & posts as I should. And people expect and ask for pictures.

So, this morning I created this new site. I have had variations of it before, but never this organized. This is where I will DUMP excess pictures. I am not going to bother doing a post. Just create an image gallery and upload a bunch of photos.

So check it out on a regular basis. I will remind you.

Another GALA success for the UNHConfucius Institute’ — after the widely acclaimed & heavily attended ‘paper umbrella making‘ workshop in January this year (ahead of the Chinese New Year). This too was packed; very festive, very musical (with UNH’s President, Dr. James Dean getting thing rolling), sustenance-loaded, celebratory and a lot of fun. Bravo, yet again, Dr. Yige Wang & Dr. Yaling Liu, and the ever hospitable ‘Confucius Institute’.

We were honored with the presence of the new UNH President, the very personable (and musically talented) Dr. James Dean, and the impressive Dr. Michele Dillon, Dean of UNH’s College of Liberal Arts. It happened to be Dr. Dillon’s birthday. So, there was a trumpet fanfare & ‘Happy Birthday‘ and birthday cake big enough to feed the whole crowd. That was a bonus.

I was lucky enough to have seen the Oyster River students perform, in Chinese, when I was there for the umbrella event. I was looking forward to seeing them again knowing that they had performed, to standing ovations, in China in the interim. They were brilliant. We also were treated to a performance of ‘Moon River’ by Professor Gunlogson & one of her students.

The buffet dinner, as ever, was outstanding. I don’t think anybody went hungry. We sure didn’t.

The Moon Cake making was fun — I am told. I personally did not partake. I was busy taking pictures. But, I could see and tell that folks were having a ball. And then the ultimate accolade. As we were leaving Teischan said “that was fun“! To say that, that coming from her, is indeed rare and high-praise would be an understatement. She is mega-fussy. I can’t remember the last time I have heard her say that. Wow. Please trust me on this. If Teischan thought that it was fun, it had to have been extremely special.

Thank you, ‘Confucius Institute’. You folks always do us all proud.
