We Bought A Boat

After decades of dreaming and years of other priorities, we have finally purchased a sailboat.  And we're loving it.  It's a learning opportunity, a camping opportunity, a swimming platform, and an efficiency machine that runs on wind.  I am thoroughly enjoying...

2022 New Era?

It's been a while since I checked in with this blog.  A lot has changed.  We're post Pandemic.  Russia is at war in Ukraine.  My parents are divorcing.  Roe vs. Wade is apparently being reversed in the Supreme Court. Our third child is graduating from High School. ...

Blogging Once a Day or Once a Year

It’s been more than a year since I last blogged.  When I started the blogging project I was blogging daily.  Perhaps I need to find a happier medium.  Life updates are in order: we’re coming up on our 21st anniversary, my second born is 18, graduated, and has moved...

A Pandemic and A New Job

Been a while since I checked in here. Idaho is just about done with Phase One of emerging from lockdown due to the pandemic/ scare. I personally think we've over reacted.  Sometimes I quip that we made the mistake of naming and paying attention to the predominant flu...

A New Decade

It's been a while since I posted.  Since last time, I've been to Italy with Claire (my beloved wife) and we've celebrated our 19th year of marriage.  Our 18 year old daughter has moved out, our 4th and 5th kids are both in school for the first time, and we're only...

UI Photog

Lately I've been busy.  One of my regular annual gigs came up with a short turn around time, and I had to take care of that and then the UI (University of Idaho) was able to give me some regular hours again.  So I've been busy over the last few weeks. I was a...

Don’t Wash Your Hair So Much

Ok, I'm going to branch out a bit.  Consider this a bit of a PSA (Public Service Announcement).  When I was growing up I saw my grandpa and my uncle using hair gel.  I believed it was the only way to keep my unruly hair from "poofing" and because of my double cowlick...

Pray About It

We say "I'll pray about it" when we don't want to give an answer.  Isn't that the starkest truth of the matter? If we knew for sure, or if we could win the argument wouldn't we just pursue it?  "I'll pray about it" is a stalling tactic.  Isn't it?  Now actually, I...

Photog Class 8: Personal Vision

In this final installment of the crash course in photography I want to discuss the goal, the end game, what the point of all the efforts in photography really are.  On first review, photography is more or less about making nice or beautiful pictures.  But what makes...

Summer Leaves

Hot muggy weather, thunder and hail, and all the leaves-- even though it's not officially summer, I think we're pretty much there.  I'm wearing shorts, and I took a short snooze earlier on our new deck stairs landing in my zero gravity chair. As I get older I like...
