5 April 1998 – 8 June 2007
Noble hound of ancient breed,
beloved of Gia and Chuck.
May the winds bear you upward friend and
may you all one day be reunited.
Here’s a short video I shot with my still cam:

I’ve been invited to give a talk about CSS at Boulder Digital Arts!
I’ll be doing some CSS-evangelism to the table-weary masses.
Put on your geeky best and come’on out!

Beloved of Rebecca and David, departed this 20th day of January. Adopted as an orphan and cared for as family. I knew this sweet girl and mourn her passing. Bon voyage mon petite.
I offer the following for her owners:
Do not stand at my grave and weep
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there;
I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there;
I did not die.
When you marry someone, you don’t always learn everything about their past right away. Sometimes you stumble across things…
I loved the architechture at the University of PA in Philadelphia! The University buildings themselves were covered with great gargoyles (all commissioned sculptures!) and plaques commemorating Ivy Day. I’m slowly digging through a huge collection of slides from my days there (I was a lab technician in the Biology Dept. in Leidy Labs and worked for Drs. Lee Peachey, Clara Franzini-Armstrong, Louis G. Tilney among others).
Lovely sculpture from the Univ of PA Museum in Philadelphia.
The wave itself was cast silver and the sphere polished crystal – mesmerizing to look at!
It was inside a plexiglass case that was none-too-clean and the lighting was very poor, thus I had to use a flash – took several shots to get a proper exposure.
We’ve had close to 30″ of snow in the past two weeks, we’ve had to rely on help from our trusty neighbor Taylor to come dig us out!
A panarama shot by my pal Mark Berenson – he shot single frames and I assembled it in Adobe Photoshop. The thumbnail opens a scaled-down version. If you want the full effect, download the PDF and you can zoom way up. Enjoy!

During my contracting days at IBM. I took my glasses off for this shot. My pal DJ Cline took this. Ah, I remember when most of my hair wasn’t grey. I’d just bought my first house (in Longmont) was making a great salary and working with folks I loved at one of the best employers in the Boulder Valley. It was the salad days.
Cupid watching his arrows burn on the altar of friendship.
Close-up of a statue I saw at the Philadelphia Art Museum. It was part of a travelling show – the Campbells Collection (as in soup, yes, that Campbells – it’s actually pretty neat – all those paste porcelain tureens and bowls led to some insane paste porcelain sculpture. Luscious stuff. Serious eye candy.) Can’t find any other references to these on the web. If I can find the full shot of the statue, I’ll post it too.

This is taken from the diner’s POV – it’s quite a striking piece – as are all the Mayan figures Bruce and co. have done! I was really pleased when I heard this artist was a local. They’ve done a ton of other great stuff – check out their site!
1977, just after college graduation. My mother and I at Arlington National Cemetary.
I remember being overwhelmed by all the death. Acres and acres of tombstones.
Little did I realize that one day the battle would come to me. My mother’s death means so much more to me than all those soldier’s lives.
Sometimes I miss you so much mom.
I’ll be along, wait up.
