Charles Bukowski. Charles Burkowski is one of my favorite poets/authors. I have used his poems for inspiration in my photography, and some of my own poems (which i keep in a vault...in the batcave). The video clip below is Mr Burkowski reading "The Genius Of The Crowd" and was the inspiration for the the picture of Noah and myself also included in post.

This Year's Card As many folks know - it has been a year of mixed emotions for my family. Literally the highest highs and the lowest of lows. I had a feeling Christmas was going to be a bit of a struggle this year. But I made the best of it.

The Things You Learn

Things that Don't Suck, Quotes, General Shenanigans July 21, 2011 11:25 AM 0 comments

Larry Summer the former president of Harvard, on the things you learn...

One of the things you learn as a college president is that if an undergraduate is wearing a tie and jacket on Thursday afternoon at three o'clock, there are two possibilities. One is that they're looking for a job and have an interview; the other is that they are an a**hole. This was the latter case.

Knowing that I try to avoid super personal posts, I say...my bad.

Next year, it will be 10 years since my beloved Grandmama passed. The pain is still there, just below the surface. Hell, I tear up every single time I think of her. I wish she was still here giving me the harsh harsh advice that I needed.

Jeep all loaded.
In the Fall Noah decided to run for student council. He was elected as a Representative of his grade, and we could not have been more proud of him. Anyone who knows Noah will agree that he LOVES animals, so his proposal to help homeless animals was no surprise. It was however, a huge surprise to ME the lengths he went to achieve this goal. Following is the story of Noah and the Pet Food Drive 2011.

Now THAT is an invite!

You won't catch me going "goo-goo" for much...let alone a wedding invitation. The interwebs are way to cluttered with the mindless chatter of "oh look at this __________" with out me pointing it out as well. However, every once in awhile something will take my breath away with it's awesomeness. Something fills with me full of "wow", awe, and general "I wish I was that damn creative" feelings.
