“There’s a strange and undeniable draw towards abandoned places. Ghost towns, urban movie palaces, grand shipwrecks, overgrown castles and the like; they lure in adventurers with their promise of poignancy and a special nostalgic brand of voyeurism. They offer visitors no small measure of irony, what with their juxtaposition of one-time splendor mixed with dilapidation…  nature lovers, the best part may be the simple beauty of the wild world reclaiming that which it once called its own…” ~ Melissa Breyer

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
