Read: Death Comes for the Archbishop

A book about New Mexico. Do I need to say anything more? Yes, laced with religion, hardship, faith, war and the landscape, not to mention rife with power names that still resonate through the high desert and the Sangres, this … Read More

Creative: A Few Things I’ve Learned

1. There is no time to wait. Whatever it is you are doing, do it now. Publishing, photography, projects, experimentations. You have people who talk and wait for the perfect moment, and you have others who just do. The doers … Read More

Creative: Morning Festival Journal

“Friday morning is always about what is left of the people who went big after the sun fell behind the mountain. Voices gone, bad colds, alcohol laden bodies. Survivors of free wine and borrowed spirits. With friends, hair down, just … Read More

Creative: PSPF Day Four

Look, I’m a bigshot! Fact. Our art book class was off the hook. The students brought great work, made prints, brought glue and scissors and dove into their blank books with abandon. By 2PM they left with working samples of … Read More

Creative: PSPF Day Three

Michelle adding my name to the signage… Today was about one thing. Books. Co-teaching with Michelle Dunn Marsh, we dove into day one of our art book class. I’m lucky to be able to teach with Michelle. The morning session … Read More

Creative: PSPF Day Two

I’m not beyond a shameless plug. Day Two. On the move. Remember in Crocodile Dundee Two when the bad guys are camping and Mick comes running through camp in the middle of the night with a giant snake? You don’t … Read More

Creative: PSPF Day One

This isn’t a normal life, nor is the speed in which the festival sucks you in. Home to car to highway to parking lot to hotel to festival to warp speed. Minutes, seconds. Friends. Scenarios. Deals. Partnerships. Collaborations. Potential. So … Read More

Creative: Leica Gallery Exhibition

So I went to Los Angeles. Most people think I’m in Los Angeles all the time, but that is far from the truth. I avoid LA as much as humanly possible. I can’t handle the traffic, congestion, residue of Hollywood … Read More

Creative: Killing Time in San Francisco

Not really. I dream about killing time, but rarely get the time to do it. I was in San Francisco for work, completed a short portrait session then booked over to The Mission to see some old friends. Creative friends. … Read More

Creative: The Freak Diaries

The swamp is still full of and rising faster by the minute. Okay, after one hundred days it’s apparent we elected a complete buffoon to the office of President. (He might be worse than unboxing videos.) He’s shown he has … Read More

Creative: Blurb Stop

(Sydney based super creative Jess Scully.) I’ve never written much about my visits to Blurb. Not sure why because there is always a lot going on. Cool, talented people doing cool and talented things. Yesterday I was asked to volunteer … Read More

Creative: Doodle Time

Postcards going out… I’m trying to make something, create something, write something or print something every single day. Not for any purpose other than making. No attempt to gain fame, audience, following or money. Doodling. Not drooling, DOODLING. Big difference. … Read More

Adventure: Training

All the fuel I needed. Okay, a few observations from today’s ride. Met a guy named Lance. Not THAT Lance just another. Two people walked right out in front of me, one man, one woman, both on mobile phones. One … Read More

Creative: Dispatch Trailer Idea

Hey Kids, Okay, let me know what you think of this little trailer. Some of you know Frank Jackson. Some of you know my Dispatches series. For those of you who you know that my interviews are long form, something … Read More

Adventure: Training

This was the fuel required for today’s ride. Coffee, banana, one bottle of water with Heed. Thirty ounces. That’s it. I had good legs today. Good legs means you can hammer and never pop, burn up, hit the wall, bonk, … Read More

Adventure: Training Miles

Started out intending do a short ride. Wasn’t really thinking about cycling actually. Was thinking about a new adventure I’m embarking on. The miles ticked by and suddenly I was staring at a clean thirty. Then my neighbor texts and … Read More

Adventure: Santa Fe Hikes

I actually did this climb several times over the past week. Close to town, steep, good trail, great views. I’ve run this before as well, but now that I’m old and sick like the soon-to-be-eaten wildabeast stumbling near the edge … Read More
