I want to have a good body, but not as much as I want dessert.

Beverly Hills

I had a job last weekend shooting in Beverly Hills of all places. It was fun to see how the other half lives, but I don't think I could do it. I also came across these great 70's presets for Lightroom. I probably overused them, but I couldn't help it. This one is called "Muskrat Love"... isn't it great??

I am opposed to millionaires, but it would be dangerous to offer me the position.

Strange Fruit

The kids and I went to downtown LA today to catch a performance art act called "Strange Fruit" from Australia. They were really fascinating to watch.

Performance art is about joy, about making something that's so full of kind of a wild joy that you really can't put into words.

A new collage on Etsy...

Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living.

The Dining Room

The dinner table is the center for the teaching and practicing not just of table manners but of conversation, consideration, tolerance, family feeling, and just about all the other accomplishments of polite society except the minuet.

Shepard Fairey

I attended a great art show last night in Riverside called Sea No Evil. All the proceeds went to benefit the Sea Shepherd Society, a group that is working on stopping the whaling industry (as well as protecting all other marine life. Captain Paul Watson was there and gave a very inspirational speech on some of his adventures in the last year trying to stop the Japanese whaling ships.

Some of the artwork featured was by Shepard Fairey (the photo below is him signing one of his pieces). He also dj'd part of the evening. It was quite a night.

These guys are so gentle, it's like shooting a puppy dog. I don't see how there's any honor in that.
~ Captain Paul Watson, Founder of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, talking about whaling.

Sense of Living

This is a new canvas I put up on Etsy yesterday...

The mere sense of living is joy enough.

If your knees aren't green by the end of the day, you ought to seriously re-examine your life.

B, her cousins, uncle, and dad all ran a 5K today. It was B's first and very probably her last.

I don't jog. If I die I want to be sick.

Thanks to some AWESOME friends my kids and I have a new toy to play with. It is so much fun. We are all enjoying it immensely!!

One of the best lessons children learn through video games is standing still will get them killed quicker than anything else.

Did you ever get the feeling that the world was a tuxedo and you were a pair of brown shoes?
