Old Friend

There was this tree in the park that’s nearby where I live. My dog, Kaylee, and I would always go into the park on our daily walks and as the tree was at the front of the park, we’d always stop to visit it before heading into the rest of the park. The other night… Continue Reading


Making Book

I’m the sort of guy that needs to be always busy. Doing something. Making something. Anything. It’s hard for me to just “sit”. Meditation sessions are always a challenge. Over time I’ve come up with a series of go-to projects when I have nothing pressing on my agenda. Playing with my iPhone apps, making artist… Continue Reading

There I go again!

There I go again! Picking up a new craft. I just can’t help myself…jack-of-all-trades, master of none. And you know what…I like it like that. I find myself getting bored working in one media and so I switch to a different one for awhile. My photography hasn’t been doing it for me as of late… Continue Reading
