This blog

I haven't posted on this blog in a long time. I need to get back in
the habit if I'm going to me traveling a lot. I think this will show
up as a note on fb.

It's been a month

since my last post. In that time, my employer went bankrupt, so I now have a lot of time on my hands. I do laundry and await the birth of my son, which will make all this seem like so much silliness.

I want to have a yard and grow tomatoes and cook for my family.

My New Bike so hot...2008 Trek Madone 6.5.

It weighs about 16lbs, full carbon, light years ahead of my last bike, which was a 1986 Eddy Merckx. I still miss the Belgian/Italian bikes, and would still get one if I had a million bucks, but this one is still hot. I swapped the handlebars for a deeper drop and rounder bend. I still wish Cinelli made the 65's. Those were the greatest handlebars of all time.

I've been riding to work 10 miles each way 3-4 days a week. I just registered for a new USCF license, and joined a club here in the city that does training races and morning training sessions. Gonna try to race again later this summer...hopefully can get fit again after 20 years off the bike that included lots of cigarettes and virtually no exercise.

how to ruin a perfectly nice little photograph...

write the following description:
"My work is landscape-based, rooted in a subtle exploration of humanity's complex relationship with nature and, by extension, with itself. I employ formal devices such as restricted color palates, careful consideration of the tensions between grounds and selective use of line and shape to further the dialog between aesthetics, content, and form. What results in the work is my own unique visual system, imbued with cultural, natural, and scientific context from my extensive travels and choice of locations all over the world. I am currently engaged in creating two major bodies of work, Lost In Paradise and The Oldest Living Things in the World. Lost In Paradise, of which Towards Christiana (Copenhagen) is a part, is a body of lush landscape work subtly addressing the complexity of natural beauty while asking for the consideration of construction and destruction, desire and loss. The work functions within a framework that presupposes free will, and the loss as a perceived or self-imposed one, allowing for either a search for meaning or, conversely, a willful misinterpretation of that which is already obtained. Lost in Paradise is meant to comment on the contemporary zeitgeist via a landscape that is as seductive as it is overlooked."
