Mom

Mom has been with us for a while now. Her situation has spurred a lot of conflicted wrestling with my view of the world. Most days, I feel like there’s more questions than answers.

Exit 420

Exit 420

My sister-in-law told me that she and her friends used to hang out at the lake that is now Smith Creek Park and was at that time called Lake 420. I laughed and asked her what she was doing back there. I didn’t make the connection to the corresponding Exit 420 from I-40. I felt […]

Left on College

Shot with a GoPro while driving home after dropping my mother-in-law off at her house. The secret to getting your GoPro night footage ( at least with the Hero3 ) is to gamma correct the living daylights out of it. That, at least, gets rid of most of the funky noise.

The Fish Tank

We did not become people who have fish as pets voluntarily. One of my wife’s coworkers ( JEREMY ) gave our son a goldfish. 4 goldfish later, we tried a betta. 3 betta’s later, we found one that would live for more than a week, but had to move it to it’s own tank because […]

This was before the guy wiped down a 3 foot radius of the table with a sanitizing wipe before setting up his dual monitor mobile workspace.

Sepia Trees

When I was a kid, my mom had these curtains that had pine trees twisting across them in a brownish, knotted pattern. When I did the color on this clip, it instantly reminded me of those living room curtains and time spent looking out the window. I spent a lot of time driving in the […]

Rehersal

Our church has begun streaming our services which means, once again, I’ve been hanging out upstairs before the service with video equipment. It’s a bit different than what I’m accustomed to. We only stream the message and not the music. There’s no lower 3rd lyrics. There’s no haze or moving lights. It’s just one person […]

Project 365-2015 Christmas Tree Disposal

I saw someone driving down the road today with a christmas tree loosely tied to the roof of their conversion van. I say “loosely” because it fell off. I took it to the christmas tree recycling area for them because I didn’t want anyone’s New Year to be ruined as they were killed by a […]

Of Marriage and Bandannas

I believe it must have been around 5th grade when my dad returned for a short spell. I wasn’t doing too well in school and I was fairly certain that my teacher, Mrs. Nichols, didn’t care none too much for the likes of me. I don’t remember too much about her save for one incident […]

Brunch with the Offspring

Yesterday, the Offspring wanted to go to Bojangles ( or Bo-hangles as he intentionally likes to mispronounce it ). It was a little late in the morning to call it breakfast, so I have decided to refer to it as “brunch”. We thumb wrestled, arm wrestled and taught each other those little weird things you […]
