free fall


“Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
With your one wild and precious life?”

-Mary Oliver

A difficult decision approaches, and everyone has plenty of conflicting advice about the ‘correct’ course of action. Ultimately, I must make my own choice, and I think I know that the best path is the uncertain, riskier one rather than the safe one. Friends of WordPress, have you ever faced a tricky dilemma? How did you gain insight? How did you find courage to take action?

IMG_1605 From the archives–no new photo this week because I slashed my finger open on a piece of glass. Blood everywhere. Now waiting until the stitches get taken out so I can move my right middle finger again. Could have been worse, but can’t help disliking being injured.

I’m not there

“The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly colored and it’s very loud and it’s fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question: “Is this real, or is this just a ride?” And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, “Hey, don’t worry, don’t be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.” And we kill those people.”

-Bill Hicks

Long time no see

Felt flustered, hadn’t seen him for nearly a decade.  Midterms around the bend, and I’m underprepared and overwhelmed. Vomit sauce.

Life as a House


 George: You know the great thing, though, is that change can be so constant you don’t even feel the difference until there is one. It can be so slow that you don’t even know your life is better, or worse, until it is. Or it can just blow you away, making you something different in an instant. It happened to me. 



First time using an ND8 filter, which didn’t allow for quite the length of exposure I was hoping for. Taken with Olympic PEN E-PL1. Sensor still needs cleaning.
