Welcome to “Behind the Scenes.” Today, we have returned to visit with Richard, the creative voice behind the writing journey of Big Sky Buckeye.
Welcome back Richard. It is a pleasure visit with you again.
You have been writing and blogging for two years. What have you treasured most from this experience?
One of the gems I have enjoyed most is exchanging comments and thoughts with other bloggers and writers. When I first arrived at WordPress, I didn’t expect to establish dialogues with so many wonderful people.
Here are a series of short questions. We are sure your readers would enjoy learning a bit more about you.
One of my favorite books is Blind Your Ponies by Stanley Gordon West. The fictional story is set in a small town in southwestern Montana. Having lived and taught in some smaller communities in Montana, I can identify with the setting and the surrounding area.
I still enjoy much of the music from my youth (60s and 70s oldies). Current music tends to be pop or country.
Favorite Architectural Marvel
Growing up in Billings, Montana, I was always in awe of the Moss Mansion, which was built in 1903 by businessman P. B. Moss. His last remaining family member was still living in the house during my high school years. The home is mentioned in a feature published earlier in: Visit the Magic City.
From a high school commencement from many years ago, the keynote speaker left a treasure with the graduates: “Promise less, deliver more.”
Grade School Memory
In the 6th Grade, my teacher (Mike Hink) required his students to write with a fountain pen. He even refilled our empty pens with more ink when needed.
Favorite Spot to Hangout
With my enjoyment of coffee and books, I have always welcomed a visit to Barnes and Noble.
We have appreciated spending time with Richard from Big Sky Buckeye. Look for more “Behind the Scenes” in future postings.
