Staring Down, Missing Up

I shuffled along the sidewalk yesterday, early on a bitter-cold winter morning, eagerly seeking the sanctuary of dry stretches of sidewalk.  On the dry stretches, I lifted my head and stared around and breathed in the crisp air (which resulted in a frozen nose), but more often I found myself tiptoeing along through those slick…

Walking in a Winter Wasteland

I am, at present, barricaded in my office.  Outside my window is a world of freeze and white moosh, the skies a bleak grey-white speared through with spindly tree branches.  It is cold out, and the snow is still coming down.  It astonished me to see that the Denver Winter Storm was not only a local…

Alley Art

Humans, by nature, walk through life with a compulsion to leave their mark on the world.  It’s inherent in our makeup, whether one is shooting for a Nobel Prize as a result of something Big, or whether it’s the creation of a child to carry on one’s genes, or the seeking-out of fame.  Sometimes, though,…

Dreaming Tech, Creepy Elevators

As I write this I am eating the most glorious instant oatmeal I’ve ever encountered:  Chai Apple.  CHAI.  In my OATMEAL.  Victory!  There is also a banana.  And coffee is involved.  Good morning. *** The other night, the Avistrum crew, including myself, were on set working on a new film.  Burned out from all of the…

Still Meandering

Wow, it is a very eye-droopin’, hazy-faced, sleepy sort of afternoon.  It is a bad sign, when I bust out the coffee cup at 3:00 p.m.  I try not to do that too often, makes it hard to unwind in the evenings.  However, I have two more hours of work to survive…and I have a…

A Lunchtime Walk

I seem to have a propensity for walking around and taking photos of things. Last November, I fell fairly valiantly, one could say with a mighty thud, off of my workout wagon.  My back had gone out, and I was incapable of doing much.  Then I got sick.  And then my back went out again. …

Rambling Wandering Weekend Mind

Earlier, I had an overwhelming desire to ramble about my peaceful weekend, and it turned into a book/film report.  Let me try this again. I seem to have lost my ability to Sleep In past a certain time of morning.  This includes weekends, and even days that I am sick.  Part of this is that…

Sneaky Saints Fan

Well, actually, I’m NOT a sneaky Saints fan at all.  I am, in fact, typically a fairly brazen Saints fan. Today, though, I’m walking in two worlds.  It is Casual Broncos Day here at work, which means everyone can wear their Broncos Swag and be all excited.  Since MY team is playing this weekend, too,…

Missing

I often wonder if, when we move, I will miss the snow.  I rant and rave about snow all the time but, once I don’t have it to mark a winter season anymore, will I miss it?  I might miss the occasional flurry that makes home cozy and decorates the world with its magical white…
