Winter at Earth's end.

This photo is from a recent trip to Tasmania with Romy & Sarah. We stayed with Romy's uncle in his beautiful home on the tip of a peninsula about 1.5 hours south of Hobart. We left computers and digital cameras at home and just cooked, ate, read, drew, ate, knitted, ate, lounged, ate, hiked, skipped stones and ate. You can see all of the photos here. Shot with two disposable cameras and a very thrilled, wide-eye.

Homesickness from home

I have been missing Minneapolis lately. I have really been missing my friends there. But more truthfully, probably, I have really been missing my friends and myself when we were all there...together

Please don't read this this the wrong way; I'm besotted with my new city, and the people who inhabit it. They are wonderful, they are talented, they are supportive, loving, and in every sense of the word, beautiful.

I am a boy with his heart in two places at once. Or perhaps its not in either of the places I think it is, and instead in the boarder-less dream of a transient existence.

Spurred by nothing obvious I have been having an insatiable craving to spend a night biking my former city of Minneapolis Minnesota. As in previous rides this one could contain a backpack with a few Black Labels, a camera, a time frame of 1am-6am and only a very rough notion of the trail to take.

Since I can't take this journey this second, I'd like to share a few of my favorite photographs of Minneapolis, all of which were taken on a bike ride much like I've spent the day dreaming about (and these past few moments describing).

The age when no one likes you

It's been a decade since I heard this song, and thought about that line nobody likes you when you're 23, & now that I am 23 I think i've rediscovered the truly spiritual connection I have with this band, and this song. Side note, this was the first song I learned on guitar.

My friend Jonathan Tillet DeMallory & I have been plotting for some time to set up a blog where we post all things cats. We both love the creatures, like many others, so this will serve as our running (ideally daily) archive of our cat encounters. You can check out our blog here.
