Telling Moments

Listening to: “Audience Of One”, Rise Against I was talking with a friend a while ago, and we were discussing our favorite classic films and their best moments. Roman Holiday, of course, came up in this conversation. I can’t say it’s my favorite Audrey Hepburn film–that would be like picking my favorite star in the […]

This & That

Ugh. I’ve been down with the DeathCold* for about a week. Finally starting to feel like a human being again, as opposed to a massive hulking CoughSniffleSneezeMonster, as of this morning.

A Problem of Motivation

Listening to: The Weakerthans, “Reconstruction Site” “Throw away my miseryIt never meant that much to meIt never sent a get-well card…”No, I’m not talking about my motivation to blog lately, although that’s been sorely lacking lately, as well.

Something to brighten your day…

With all the snow and ice and cold and general…whiteness around, I think we need some pictures from a sunny summer day in the woods. Also, I don’t feel much like writing anything. These pictures are from this particular adventure, and I found them again a few months ago while cleaning out my inbox. Apparently […]
