I need to get back into getting crafty... if not photography... it not writing... then what?


that was not today
this was a few years ago

Grant is now 10
just got home from coaching Grant and his U10 soccer team
good practice
saw some stuff I liked... kids are starting to think
but there are still a few situations and a few children I do not want to think

THROW INS DOWN THE LINE UP FIELD
UNLESS YOU ARE CLOSE ENOUG TO THE GOAL TO THROUGH IT TOWARDS THE MIDDLE
and of course

GOAL KICKS TO THE SIDE
NEVER ACROSS THE FIELD
NEVER INTO THE MIDDLE

more goals at this stage are scored not by beautiful soccer but by a team capitalizing on the other teams mistakes
so many goals scored off sorry goal kicks
great to have our kids starting to understand how to intercept that sloppy goal kick
would like to see the removal of the sloppy goal kick from out team

see... I did it wrong and broke my elbow
but it was a very similar move
only was on the street
and I was the one with the camera

trying to snap a shot of my boys on their bikes with the setting sun behind them

Is that Boston Strong?


not in the least bit sporting
but what do I know... hockey is not my thing
as cool as I think it is to see a fight in a hockey game
I do not get that... if you want to see a fight go to a boxing match or a mma match

fighting should be banned from hockey
my unsolicited ill informed unsubstantiated opinion

surrounding yourself with positive people is important... also... gravitated towards active people and creative people... if you want to be active and/or creative

the Huffington Post, John Stewart and Colbert, and then a little NPR and I think I got my news... sadly I do not get enough news... I know nothing about that lost plane!

For all the carpe disc ladies, the best part of my 30s.
There is one magnificent sport that -- despite flying under the radar -- is about to come out of the shadows: Ultimate Frisbee....

is winter over? can I pack away my winter cycling gear?


that is an old shot
that baby dean is now twelve
and well
the guy in the blue jacket has more gray in his beard

last day of spring break for dean and grant
back to work tomorrow
back to work with my broken chicken wing
doing the job will be awkward... but manageable
but how do I get to work?

yes... I am on injured reserve
still have not seen an orthopedic specialist
saw my "guy" who I already had an appointment with
he says it looks good but that I need to see the specialist
his review of the x-rays was informative and positive
as positive as viewing an x-ray of a broken elbow can be

ah... doing laundry from the Asheville Spring Break trip
a trip that will now be known as the Asheville Spring Broken Elbow Trip
not to be repeated
Asheville yes... broken elbow no

yes... Mount Washmore continues
onto the cycling gear
much more mine than the boys
as I own more I brought more and therefore need to wash more

time to thin the herd
I have lots of old cycling gear
a good bit is low in the rotation
should donate it... 

it would be cool to send old team kits to cycling clubs in less privileged areas
locally or abroad

back to unpacking
and then
packing away winter gear
snowboard and skiies are being moved to the garage
