Shetland Islands – I was in the middle of something…

We stopped in Mid Yell for the obvious photo.

Traveling south from Unst to the “mainland” (the Shetland Island’s largest island), one crosses Yell, and past “Mid-Yell” – a shameless photo-opt ensued.

This was one of the narrower roads that we drove on — not the narrowest. Every so often there were passing […]

Alternative London – Exploring Brick Lane

Saturday, before Book of Mormon, I headed over toward Brick Lane for the Alternative London tour – which is, basically, a tour of Brick Lane focusing on street art and graffiti. The tour is done on a donation basis – at the end of the tour you tip what you think the tour was worth.

Decamped to Hillcrest, San Diego

It’s Harvey Milk Street!

I’m currently in San Diego – here to see some ex-expatriates who used to live in Berlin – but also to have me time.

Indiana is always a minefield for me – a good minefield, but a minefield nevertheless. Despite having moved away from Bloomington some 8 years ago, I […]

My Weekend in Photos

Spot something out of place here?

Outta Hibernation!

Sorry about my silence the last weekend, but the sun came out and, consequently, I went out. I’ve gone for a number of long walks out into the country side, and then in the evenings I’ve either been plum tuckered out, or, like last night, I went over to a friend’s place to hang out […]

Bloomington Indiana: Tons of Things in One Dispatch

This is one of those moments where I have a ton of things to say, but it occurs to me that I’ll never have enough time to say it all in thematic blog posts unless the theme is “Bloomington, Indiana” – so here it is: one post, many things, one city.

My favorite coffee shop […]

Dangerous, Deficient Childhood.

I called Mom today.

As I often want to do, when I call her, I remind her of all the terrible things that happened to me during my childhood in Denver, trying to lay blame for everything wrong in my life at her feet.

Today was no different.

“Mom,” I started. “I can’t believe you […]

Photo Uploading

I have a lot of photos that I haven’t gotten around to uploading as promptly as I should have. Today I managed to upload a few and I thought I would share three of my favorite shots out of the bunch. You can, of course, see all of my photos on my Flickr stream.

The Tour Starts Here!

I really like Canada.

It’s easy to see why people want to live here—heck, I could see myself living in Canada.

Friday I took advantage of the free tour of downtown Toronto offered by the Downtown Yonge Business Improvement District. I forget the name of my tour guide, but she […]

Ice, Ice Baby!

This morning I slept in a bit—I’ve had an exhausting week.

There was a brief reprieve for me this morning: It was time for my once every 4 week haircut—although this time it was only 3 weeks since my last trim because my stylist is going on vacation for two weeks. The fact is that […]
