Orientation Of Impact

Sleep makes all the difference. Mistress of the obvious, I know, but it was so very necessary last night. I skipped out on all the shows I’d intended to attend (on my first kid-free evening) and forced myself to do a faceplant by 11pm instead. With the aid of magical melatonin I managed a blissful [...]

Only When Your Eyes Are Closed

My boy is flying. Without me. This has happened before, once, with his grandmother. This time out he’s all on his own but he seemed a-ok with it. Still. I want my baby bird to be well prepared. To that end I shelled out for a Samsung Strive. Yep, my 10 year old has his [...]

Headlong Into the Irresistible Orbit

An amazing photo series appeared in a tab in my browser, [...]

And yesterday this video of “Things Being Destroyed Very Slowly” reminded me of my favorite aspects of Inception. Sure, I love the epic big bang boom explosions, but the float-y slo-mo gravity-defying shots were extremely satisfying.

Backwards Cats

Attempting to cheer myself up by listening to The Budos Band and dancing (wiggling) in my chair at work. Safely within the confines of our air-conditioned workplace. Outside there would be no such dancing in this heat and humidity. Nearly need gills to breathe outside. It feels like standing in the mouth of some massive [...]
