Just found out that one of my best friends from high school passed away unexpectedly. I’m devastated. 😢
I’m tempted to pick up an iPhone 11 Pro to replace my iPhone 7 Plus. But honestly, my current phone is working just fine so I’m going to wait a little longer…
Sad to see that legendary Dutch designer Wim Crouwel passed away. I became aware of his work when I started playing around with modular type design. While most Americans aren’t familiar with his work, his New Alphabet was used on the Joy Division Substance album cover…
I pulled my old digital Canon Rebel out of the closet for my daughter to use at photography club. It’s almost 15 years old, but other than needing a new battery, it’s working perfectly. A whopping 6 megapixels, but it will be perfect for her.

Sorting through years of computer files today… I am a digital pack rat. 💾
I love a long weekend, but I hate the first day back after a long weekend.
My 7-year-old and I were walking downstairs to make breakfast this morning and out of nowhere, he asked me: “What are you excited about today?” You know, I think I should start every day with that question…
We passed Popeye’s on the way home and there was a line of cars around the restaurant. Normally, there is no one there. I guess the new chicken sandwich is the real deal.
