During the dive away from the Grand Canyon, towards northern Arizona, the landscape grew more and more like nothing I had ever seen. Around every curve was an entire new world. It was a valley, with sharp red cliffs rising up to the sky. Then around just another curve, the road was on the top […]
The desert is full of weird things. I think that’s one of my favorite parts of the desert. How normal it is to stumble onto strange objects or structures in the middle of nowhere. This thing, we found in Bombay Beach at the Salton Sea. It’s an old airplane that got turned into an interesting […]
I’ve been away from here. It’s always been in the back of my mind. To start making blog posts again. Have a reason to take pictures with my camera again. But the writing to go along with the pictures is difficult to extract from my brain. It’s so easy to come up with generic things […]
He flew out of a city truck going down the road. At first glance, it looked like a trash bag. But it was a tiny kitten that tumbled down the road through the early morning traffic. He had climbed into the engine of the truck to keep warm. His name was Tumbleweed. Tumbleweed needed to […]
I thought Arizona would be flat, and mostly brown. I was wrong. We woke up early to begin the long drive to Tucson from Holbrook. I wasn’t really looking forward to it because I thought the landscape wouldn’t be very interesting. Around an hour into the drive is when we learned that Arizona has mountains. […]

Every year I like spring more and more. It’s hard to stay sad when pretty little flowers are poking up through the ground, and the world explodes with color.
The Living Room. The first room we really remodeled in this house. After almost a year of strangely painted walls with an ugly stripe, a Popcorn ceiling with a water stain, no TV and a ripped up brown leather couch. We rarely spent any time in here. The idea for the living room came together […]
This part of the city is changing fast. What was once the busy industrial center that kept this city alive, had died and gone vacant. No one dared wander these empty streets. Especially at night. Nothing was around but an obscure coffee shop, that doubled as a music venue. My friends and I would all […]
I was headed to my first therapy appointment. Nervous and anxious, but also a little excited. Maybe soon I’ll figure myself out. I wandered through this strange building, unchanged since the 1980s, with a weird silence that filled the walls and narrow hallways, which were dimly lit by fluorescent light. I didn’t dare take the […]
