Odyssey

In 2011 I traveled 15,000 miles around the US and Canada visiting friends and colleagues I have known through my online work.

StoryBox Wants YOU

cc licensed ( BY NC ND ) flickr photo shared by SpreadTheMagic C’mon folks, I have been politely asking, nudging, nagging, and frankly, INTERNET YOU ARE LETTING ME DOWN on participating in my StoryBox Project. The imperial gloves are coming off, cause the excuses are poop. I’m out here on the road, going town to […]

Golden Gigapan

I’m in Golden, Colorado for three days, doing work for a project needing photography of town and interviews with key city developers and citizens. It is a dynamic place full of active people, and the mountains around town provide more than nice rocks to look at; they do seem to be a key component of […]

Postcards Cousin Bobby Style

Holy retro, Batman! I am sending analog postcards! Those things with short, hand written, possibly tweet-length sentiments (sans hashtags) with a real photo attached, not a twitpic link. Doing this while traveling took me back in time to growing up and getting postcards from Cousin Bobby. I was not (and still not) clear on whose […]

Out Here

cc licensed ( BY ) flickr photo shared by cogdogblog Just a quick post, cause there is stuff to see today. I’ve been out on the road 3 days now, and am feeling that separation from the life I knew so well before, disappearing into the clouds of not knowing what comes next. I described […]

It’s Time

StoryBox Video

Recently “on The Twitter”, Scott Leslie rightfully chided me because my web page describing the concept for the StoryBox was long — Don’t apologize Scott, I like you because you say it like it is, cause you carry the card. My response was, :”it’s a first draft!” but I had been trying to do something […]

T Minus Seven
