Quite a year

October 27th, 2013 · Comments Off

Transitions all around me

October 19th, 2012 · 3 Comments

From my perspective, the recent past, the present, and near future has/is/going to be a time of big changes and/or transitions for most of my friends — moving in, moving out, death, birth, leaving jobs, new jobs, health issues, divorce, marriage, plus whatever else I’m missing. I’m not exactly sure what it means, but I […]

TED and Vulnerability

May 15th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Ann suggested I watch this TED talk many months ago. I finally watched it this morning. Definitely a good one that made me think long about many things. Definitely struck home more than once. I haven’t watched TED talks in a long while, although it is definitely one of my favorite pastimes.

New Bed

April 12th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Off and on over these past couple of years, I have had a hard time sleeping. Part of it was just my mind refusing to shut off. Part of it was just not being comfortable in my bed. A few weeks ago, I had my friend Chad build me a new custom birch bed. Chad […]

The Stampede Trail has recently gained fame as the ‘magic bus’ (Into the Wild refernce) is located off this trail. We headed out early and were […]

Cold Departure

January 30th, 2012 · 1 Comment

I managed to escape the Fairbanks cold Saturday night. The airport temperature was -49F when we left. The icefog in town has been horrible – nearly impossible to see. The picture above (not a great picture) was taken on the way to the airport. The icefog was so thick, you can barely see the car […]

Relay for life

May 17th, 2009 · Comments Off

In a couple weeks, I am participating the Relay for Life, a nationwide fund raising event for the American Cancer Society.  I am on Team Spiritus and it seems like it is a fun, good, and amazing group.  The team goal is to raise $5000 and my personal goal is a bit less than that.  […]
