lake

hiking up here is a bit different than back in the midwest. i think the air is cleaner for one. there’s also mountains and lots and lots of evergreen trees. it’s colder too. i need to hike more…….if it just weren’t for youtube.

let’s play catch up

sorry for the lack of posts recently (for the those who actually read). i’ve had a superbly busy and enjoyable week. i love my job and life right now, there’s nothing else i can really say. meeting random people everyday, taking pictures, and getting paid to do it is the most satisfying job one could […]

anne and kitty

i just finished reading the diary of a young girl by anne frank. tears were streaming by the time i finished reading the afterward chapter. it just tells what happened to everyone in such a matter of fact way. so sad. i’m singing a wordless chorus right now. that book is the most profound thing […]

oh npr

i’m longing for npr. npr has been a staple in my life for the past few years. nothing beats the personal quality of good radio programing. my npr listening has been dangerously low since moving to bellingham. it’s mostly because of my building, “the alamo.” i can’t pick up the local station on my radio […]

conversing

i love a good conversation almost more than anything. solid conversation is like taking that first bite of your favorite food while sitting alongside loved ones in a desired place with perfect weather and a good glass of wine. a good conversation has no time limits or constraints. it’s almost as if it has a […]

clothesline

in this picture the crickets are singing on an early summer night. if you close your eyes and trace back your childhood you will hear them. maybe you and your brother walked barefoot down to the river to fish in the moonlight with nothing but a couple of homemade poles and a transistor radio. maybe […]

orange pinkish line

i was sitting at a coffee shoppe last night as the sun dipped itself into some other place’s day. the wind was whipping around the bay and was beautiful to just sit there and watch the world happen. people walked by, and old woman fell over (she was ok though), and a young kid jumped […]

a wake up call

if you’re reading this smile right now. it really will make you feel better. or at least think about smiling. what makes you smile? i couldn’t sleep past 5 a.m. this morning. my neighbor snores really loud. it’s actually comical. so, knowing that i wouldn’t be able to sleep any longer i just stayed up […]

water therapy

i took a much need walk along the water last night to clear the clouds forming in my head. sometimes i just think to much and worry about microcosms. it’s like i take too many short breaths when all i need to do is sit up straight close my eyes and take a good deep […]
