Running a mile a minute. Trying to stay warm... and not get shot. All to a soundtrack something along the lines of this [my radio show from yesterday morn]: [with this as the playlist...] [images found on le love.]
I have a lot a lot of talented friends. And I love collaborating with them... or at the very least, watching what they do. My incredible musician friend, Bobby, is part of Rollover Mariner. I made this gig poster for him: After saving an Illustrator jpg, it decided to change itself colors. But I kinda… Continue reading a few good men.
The light of the 6 o'clock hour in Jackson is just gorgeous. I stepped outside and walked a few steps before actually saying, "This is gorgeous." It is bright without blinding. Light without exposing. It is so still. So right. And cold. It feels as though the light of the day has been frozen and… Continue reading without blinding. without exposing.
After running some errands today, I decided I wanted a Dairy Queen Blizzard. Okay, who am I kidding? I had brought along coupons I've been saving for DQ. The whole point of this excursion was to get a Blizzard. Driving through town, towards DQ, I saw a hitchhiker. And I thought to myself, Self, you… Continue reading lethal poison for the system.
[feelings oh, so familiar.] Last night I went to a TreeFight event [nice logo, eh?] at the Center for the Arts featuring the amazing work of Thais Beltrame. Walking around, I was instantly moved by her work... It was like a story, an on-going epic... Moving... I could go on and… Continue reading alone. empowered. beautiful.
Sometimes I forget how much I love the face to face conversation. How much I love just running into people, talking, catching up, sharing. Which explains how I forgot that I love going to the local coffee shop to set up shop early in the morning. My friend says that you meet the best kinds… Continue reading then there’s an asterisk.
The Teton County Library is a solid association that I have with Fall in Jackson. I love it here. I love watching people studying, seeking, learning, playing, killing time, helping. My favorite library-goer is close enough to me. He's a man. He's a bit older than me, a climber I assume... judging by the Pagan… Continue reading and it feels all right.
[and all the sudden, she awoke inside... running through every compartment of her makings, switching on every single light in every flesh-walled compartment... from inside the ankle, to the knee, to the hip, to the inside of the ribs [...it tickles], running to the heart [it's a pull-string switch... pull hard], to where the collar… Continue reading it tickles.
Okay, I'm reusing my post from last Halloween... - Why can’t witches get pregnant? - I dunno, Mom… Why? - Because warlocks have hollow-weenies! [out of the 500 times i've heard this joke, i bet i hear the punch line about 25% of the time... the other 75%, she's laughing too hard to deliver it. … Continue reading since i was twelve.

Totally forgot to post this poster to the blahg earlier... but hopefully it will get everyone so psyched for Bike-In movies for years to come. Thanks, Bike-Ins. It's been a… Continue reading what did they say??
I did the dumbest thing I've done in a long time today. I was like, "Okay, Self. You should do something. There's a yoga studio like a half block from your temporary place. Go to a yoga class. Clear your head. Feel fit. Feel good. Use your body." So, I check the schedule and they've… Continue reading a hot nap.
This blahg post is purely to remember/share the randomness/beauty of yesterday. -------------------- I've been riding my dad's old Schwinn Varsity around. It's an emerald green ten-speed and I LOVE it. My dad loves it too. He talks about how dear it is to his heart and how if I don't lock it up and it… Continue reading excuse me…
I did my radio show with my little brother [Ryland] this morning. It was so great. We laughed. We panicked. He answered the phone... - Hello? KHML... - No, Ryland... KHOL! We remembered our roots. We danced. We played these tunes... It was such a great time... I loved having him share that time, that… Continue reading the stevens scramble.
Last minute outing found me on my bike. It was late, I wasn't going far, I didn't bring a headlamp. Now, I don't recommend this at all... it is not the safest choice... but last night, it was amazing. Worth it. It felt like a Texas summer night... the best temperature. Biking around in shorts,… Continue reading and i saw it say.
I ran a half marathon yesterday. It went much better than the half marathon I ran two weeks ago... But don't worry... they took care of me oh so well... Anywho, yesterday's was harder than the one before. Don't know why. But later in the day, driving back from a pot luck in Wilson, I… Continue reading i was from portland.

Here I sit. Between awesome events. On a Friday night. Blahgging. I've been gone. In Oregon. Can't wait to tell you about the most humilated I've ever been on a trail. Phew. It was awesome. Then it was Anna's birthday. We Thanksgivinged. Said what we're thankful for... what we're not. Tradition. I am so so… Continue reading in between.
First off: The rain will not stop. - You should totally do the Run and Ride for the Cure with me. Please. - Allison, I don't bike. - You can do it in teams! - ......Alright, we'll do it. Evan doesn't know it yet, but I'm sure he's in. Look up on the website, the… Continue reading the true fun class.
I woke up insanely happy and just didn't know what to do with myself... so I did what I do best, took a picture of myself on my computer. It's crazy that I'm twenty-five... today... whoa. And that... that is what I look like after a quarter century of living, breathing, running, loving, crying, dancing,… Continue reading handsome cowboys and heineken beer.
