The Rewards and Challenges Of a Life of Blogging

I’m disappointed. I started this blog for a few reasons. One, I had a series of significant travel trips coming up, and I wanted a medium like a public “travelogue” to document my activities in far-off lands. I returned from Alaska last week, and I’ve been meaning to write up more on my experences there. [...]

Off to Alaska!

Well, Seattle first anyway. I’m posting from my Blackberry as we’re screaming down the freeway to get to the airport in time for our Jetblue flight at 8:10. (Do you think my dad saying we should leave by 6:10 if its an hour to the airport? I have my doubts still.) Many people hate flying, [...]

New Domain Name!

Hey all, Finally got the site registered under a real, bona-fide domain. Woot! I think it has a connotation of professional, but not too pompous. It is my name after all, and I’m not a pompous person.
