My name is Jim Rain. I’m old, but getting younger. I make tortillas. I’m a Christian. And a fifth-generation Texan (Dallas variety). The foregoing is not necessarily presented in order of importance.

This site is mostly for me – it’s my electronic diary and photo album. But I’m glad for anyone who stumbles onto this site to enjoy these posts.

I do urge you to take a look at the Commonplace Book page; it’s a compilation of statements that I don’t want to forget, said or written by folks wiser than I am. They resonate with me, and they might do the same for you.

P.S. “Fare forward, voyagers” is from Eliot’s “The Dry Salvages”; he attributes the phrase to Krishna. To “fare well” is not always possible, but, let’s at least wish each other to “fare forward.”
