Leaving for the last time

In the last 16 years I probably spent more time in this room than anywhere else. It felt weird to walk out last week knowing that if I was ever back it would be as a visitor.

Two apartments, a 9 year-old, seemingly countless seasons and events and just everything happened while I was here. Good times and bad and some awful and some great.

We moved just three floors, and it was the right call because no one wants offices anymore so why were we paying for 30 of them, but it feels a lot farther.

Probably some day I’ll stop hitting the wrong button in the elevator, but not yet.


I made this, because the states on the left were just told by SCOTUS that they’re not doing guns correctly. And I’m fairly angry.

Ten years on

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAI think by now nearly everybody realizes that we made a mistake, and most even agree on what the cause was and how it happened.

And yet we keep letting the same things lead us into making more mistakes.

I hope everyone takes a moment today to think about where we’ve been, what we’ve become, and how we can take at least a few small steps in the direction of what we want to be.  What we deserve to be.


This is what the WTC site looks like today from my office window.  I feel like sharing.  I’ve been lucky to see it go up these last few years, and someday I’ll share the video I’ll make out of the one-photo-per-day-(mostly) project.

Visual Dissonance

Maybe this doesn’t bother other people like it bothers me, but I’d rather have the text backwards than the buildings.

I’ll be replacing the album cover in all my meta data w/ this one, and my apologies to the artist who put it together originally.  I’m sure they must have had some reason for flipping reality.

On a related note: meh.

When rules are dumb, rules are ignored

When will the ‘Powers that Be’ learn that stupid rules are ignored, and the more rules that are ignored the less important the rules are? If the people who write the rules don’t take them seriously, then how/why would anyone else?

No zoom?  Leave your phone at home.  Arrive an hour early?  Not sure they’d let me in then.

Spending a lot of time at the Garden this year, and all in all a decently run place.  They do a good job of keeping the place clean and the staff friendly, but can’t wait for the renovation.
