We are more than halfway through September now.

Yesterday, Jake turned 10.

Recently, I had occasion to go through the stacks of photographs I’ve accumulated through the past two decades. It was a difficult time of reflection; Jake is at once very different and very familiar. He is handsome and thoughtful and smart and mouthy and surprising and clever and bossy and creative. He is a delight each and every day.

I am 6 weeks from finishing my undergrad career.


It feels real and unreal at the same time. I can’t imagine what I will do with the free time that I will suddenly have in abundance.

I have started a new collaboration project with some new artists; similar to Reflex, there are 5 of us creating in a single sketchbook. We are scattered again: Texas, Alabama, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, New Jersey. I am really looking forward to the challenge.

Which reminds me: I owe a Reflex entry. I am guilty of holding the book for too long.
