Art Watching

Day 15,141 There’s something kinda calming about a couple of people looking at a couple of paintings. It’s an easy picture to grab. Just walk into any museum, find a nice corner, and snap away. They wont notice you. They’re too busy trying to figure it all out. So snap away with confidence. Later, have a look at your pictures. Pick out the one you…

Empty Halls

Day 15,140 Not really sure where I’m going with this yet. I had a fun conversation over coffee, through a webcam, with another museum/cultural/consultant type. Of course, I was out of coffee before the conversation started, and didn’t want to be rude and get up in the middle of it to refill my cup. It was an interesting discussion nevertheless. Our chat bounced around a…

Driving Around

Day 15,139 I’m still browsing through photos. “The Catalog” is weighing on me. I decided to make a Lightroom catalog of just the photos I’ve taken with the Fuji. I thought it would be a nice succinct collection of images, but of course, things have crept in, and now I am shuffling through the pile, trying to rectify. Meanwhile, I continue to find nice photos….

Calendars for everyone

Day 14,936 I’ve been thinking a lot today about calendars and calendar systems. This is who I am. I loved this piece by Jason Fried on the way calendar systems are typically designed to allow anyone out there to manage your time. Jason thinks this is insane, and he’s right, but what’s the alternative? I set up my coffee calendar using a system that literally…

Meditations on a park bench

Day 14,934 I should probably redo that math. Have been just incrementing up since the first one. We all know how that can go. Honestly, an exceptional, easy weekend. Fiancé, friends, food… fun! Now I’m kicking off the week thinking about “all the things.” Nice piece on meditation by Doretta Lau. You should follow her. I’ve still not cracked the meditation nut yet. Well, whenever…

That rug really tied the room together

Day 14,920 Bowling begins tonight, so naturally, Lebowski comes to mind. Bowling isn’t exactly exercise, but it will do tonight. My doctor says I need to get some exercise and she is right. “Time to stand” is probably not going to do the trick. My quantified self isn’t going to actually get me in shape. For that you actually need to raise your heart rate…

The End of Suburbia

Somewhere, out there, out towards the edge of town, the edge of the city, there is still room to grow. This is our home, the middle-ground between the work and the life. Commutable, drivable, practical, nice. In here, we’ve built another kind of community, a place where we grow up, find love, have families, dinner parties, replace roofs, yard work, friends over, don’t walk much,…
