Early

As the sun rises I see rain clouds moving in. All the windows in the house are open and the smell is in the air. The neighbor's dog is barking at the birds in the trees but I don't mind. A helicopter just flew overhead and I wonder what its story is, where did it come from, where is it going?

The Things Sent To Try You

It's been about a month, how are you getting on in your new house you didn't ask. I'll tell you. We love it. But roses it has not been.

Couple days after we moved in we had raw sewage coming up out of all the shower drains. As you do. Blockage from the house to the City line.

About a week later a nice little flood in the laundry room and part of the living room. Pipe in the wall feeding the washing machine disintegrated. We had a restoration company come in to dry out the floors/walls/framing. A week of jet engines and not hearing ourselves think. I'd envisioned living in the house slightly longer before putting in our first house insurance claim.

Then last week during the storm of century we got, well, all the rain I think. The puddle in the kitchen with ceiling dripping a lovely good morning surprise. Leaky roof is leaky.

Hoping for a quiet and incident free rest of the year.

Killer

I'm trying to imagine how this meeting went.

Manager: we need a name and artwork, something that not only says bread, but quality too.

Marketer: how about stuck in the 80s dude with a guitar? Let's call him Dave, and he makes killer bread yeah?

Killer

Manager: ship it!

Looking Back On Our Life

Looking Back On Our Life

Doc Martens 1991-2019.

When I think of the stories these guys could tell. Walking the streets of London, Paris, Rome, Venice, New York. They traveled with me through every single move.

Except this last one.

What a great life they had though. Cheerio old friends.

Go East Young Man

When you sell your house, no matter how much of a good idea it sounds, do not rent a truck and move yourself. I do these things so you don't have to.

From a suburb of Phoenix to actual Phoenix proper, a city dweller now. It's exciting and exhausting and are there ever boxes for days.

Ritual

First thing in the morning with a cup of coffee in hand is the best time to scribble some things on this here internet website. Today I'm mostly giving the eye of annoyance to Lightroom. Or I should say whatever I did to Lightroom to now make it crash whenever there's an SD card in the reader. So that's cool.
