Kultur and the Other

22 May , 2012 Culture

Modernism is “above all a culture of the sensational event, through which art and life both become a matter of energy and are fused into one.” – Eksteins, Modris, Rites of Spring. 1989 New York: First Mariner Books, 2000.

Bumble Bee in California

22 May , 2012 Lifestyle,Travel

I said I would write about each of our trips this year and here is the first entry. I am fortunate enough to have my birthday fall on Memorial Day weekend. I am even more fortunate to have great friends to join me on a return trip to California as part of my celebration. Angela and I have gotten good at adding 1-3 PTO days to natural 3-day holiday weekends making for nice multiple 4-7 day vacations without too much effort. This approach allows us to take our standard work vacation allotment and stretch two to three times as far. I recommend this method to everyone.

The Story Behind The Pain

22 May , 2012 Culture

This week I discovered something beautiful. Not more beautiful than Angela, that is impossible. I found that there are still stories in music that can move me like the cool wind hitting your skin while sitting in a half broken beach chair at sunset with the golden orange sky exploding all around you and love two feet away sighing breaths like smoke clouds composed of moments of relaxation and anxiety that it will soon come to an end.
