Have I Found What I Was Looking For?

How’d your trip go? Was it everything you expected? I cannot count the number of times I’ve been asked these questions. After my first return to the aikiki after four long months my response to the common questions shifts, accommodating the changes I notice in my Aikido practice I look nage and uke in the

Timelapsed Photography

Another quick attempt to procrastinate on engaging entries, here’s another shot at the “picture a day” project. So check it out and come back in a year and see how mine develops.

I am Ivory Woman

I’ve tried the Porn Name game before and have always been disappointed about the results. Growing up on 5th street, you can imagine how bland the names would turn out even when trying different “first pet” names. “Molly Fifth”, “Zach Fifth”, “Peaches Fifth”, etc. So today, when my friend sent me the Wrestling Name game,

Home w/the Kitties

Being back in Portland has me cuddling my kitties more than usual, and laughing at funny little animations like this one. I’m glad I didn’t catch this while I was away, or I would have died just missing little Zelda’s face pawing.

Talk to Strangers Road Trip

Febrary-April 2008 Wow, who would have imagined how much time it’d take to develop and parse through 30 rolls of film and over 1,500 digital photos? Fine, laugh away… Good news is that I’m slowly getting there and willing to share my portfolio and albums along the way. Just remember they’re not complete and I
