I’m just laughing so hard. I took a burst of photos of my son practicing a dive at his swim lesson today, and I can see the precise frame where he went from “lithe swan” to “giant airborne pretzel.”
My sleepy little hometown has this nonsensically great summer concert series now that I live ten hours away: Flaming Lips, Thievery Corp, Sylvan Esso and Chvrches all played a cozy downtown amphitheater there this year. What?!
My son just went cruising up the street on his bike, saying, “bye, Dad, I’ll be home by supper,” so I’m just going to sit quietly while being impossibly aged for a little while.
Then I guess I’ll make supper.
Good monsoon season sunrise today.
Someday I will meet the man who designed my refrigerator such that the water filter cannot be replaced without removing a shelf. I will tell him that I am not mad, I am disappointed. Deeply disappointed.
The apparent downside of having deep cleaned my espresso machine is my newfound understanding that all that old gunk was the only thing ensuring a tight seal of the portafilter against the gasket.
So, it hailed pretty good at my house today.
Oh no. I just started thinking about changing my blog platform again. Somebody better enable and/or stop me.
I finished Anthony Doerr’s All the Light We Cannot See tonight. It’s stunning. Lyrical, gripping, and heartbreaking. 📚
What’s the word on the iOS 12 public beta, friends? Is it ready to run on my daytime phone?
The old Bridge over Marble Canyon at Cameron, AZ.

My high school was built as a WPA project and remains this spectacular monument. (Despite taking the original marquee down and replacing it with a ridiculous electronic sign several years ago.)
Dinner date tonight included a nice sampler of interesting sake, and a dish of local corn with a spicy sauce wrapped in seared tuna. That tuna corn was outstanding.
Last time I went on vacation, I got all relaxed and thought, “sure, I can coach the soccer team.” This time I’m all relaxed and thinking, “maybe I’ll start up a tiny podcast here on my micro.blog.” 👀
Morning at mom and dad’s place, northern Utah. We drove here yesterday for a few days of vacation.
It’s after five, making today officially a twelve-hour work day. I’m going on vacation and having one of these.
I got some old favorites for my birthday.
Ever find yourself just really, really looking forward to making tacos tonight?
I probably shouldn’t have skipped lunch?
Just out for a walk yesterday. I love love the effect of stormy sky with evening sunlight on the foreground.
Today’s cappuccino was good.
