Hey!I maintained this blog from 2006-2014, primarily as a place to dump my field sketches (and the occasional painting). It's no longer active, but you can find me at the links above.
The size and age of the Cosmos are beyond ordinary human understanding. Lost somewhere between immensity and eternity is our tiny planetary home. In a cosmic perspective, most human concerns seem insignificant, even petty. And yet our species is young and curious and brave and shows much promise. In the last few millennia we have made the most astonishing and unexpected discoveries about the Cosmos and our place within it, explorations that are exhilarating to consider. They remind us that humans have evolved to wonder, that understanding is a joy, that knowledge is prerequisite to survival. I believe our future depends powerfully on how well we understand this Cosmos in which we float like a mote of dust in the morning sky.

I miss having a dog. Every once in awhile I catch myself poking around on breeders’ websites, until I’m reminded by a sensible little voice (and a demanding little parrot) that now just isn’t the time. My first childhood dog … Continue reading
I spent Sunday at my parents’ place (it’s tradition for me to be the one to wrestle with the tangle of Christmas lights, and I still drop by the first weekend every December to light the tree). The rain didn’t … Continue reading
Been drawing a lot of tigers lately. Not entirely sure why.
