14 Years…

A Day At the Park With Rented Dogs

A Day At the Park With Rented Dogs

It’s been a crazy few weeks.  Between moving into a new home, starting a new job, dealing with a terrible loss, getting my son into a new school and adjusting to an entirely new routine, we haven’t had a chance in what feels like forever to...
My Brother

My Brother

This past Tuesday, my little brother died in his sleep at the age of 34.  Words can’t describe how devastating this has been for us.  He and I had grown apart over these past few years, largely because I have a family of my own and had been living a few states...
Incident at Frozen Beach

Incident at Frozen Beach

It feels like it’s been forever since Lib and I got to get out, just the two of us, for a bit of adventure.  This past weekend we ventured to the town of South Haven for a visit to the still frozen shores of Lake Michigan.  It was a truly magical place, and a...
A Pair of Wilderness Treks

A Pair of Wilderness Treks

So we’ve been getting nailed with bad weather here in Michigan.  As in “I now suffer from seasonal depression” bad.  As in “are we ever going to get weather that doesn’t involve a severe Winter Storm Warning and/or Yeti sightings”...

Moving Day

Moving Day

Oh, yeah, we’re moving to Michigan.  So there’s that. We’ve lived in Washington for about 11 years, and it’s been a terrific run.  We arrived here with no plan: we’d signed a lease on a tiny, remote little house up in Bellingham, I got a...
A Day At the Zoo: In Pictures

A Day At the Zoo: In Pictures

We hadn’t been to the zoo in what felt like forever.  This past weekend, armed with complimentary tickets provided by my lovely employer (Wizards of the Coast, Mecca of Geekdom), we set out for Woodland Park Zoo, ready to endure the blazing summer heat and storm...

My January, In Pictures

Since yesterday was my birthday, I thought I’d do sort of a lazy post today. Recently Lib turned me on to Project Life 365, where you follow daily photo prompts and post your pictures to whatever social media you use (I post mine to both Twitter and Facebook)....

Pictures of the Fall

It’s been a while since I’ve shown off my “mad” photography skills (which is to say, “It’s been a while since I’ve proved how an awesome camera can make even a moron like me look like a photographic genius”). Last year,...
