My Life — Captured in these moments


Retired, no more

"in regress"

Asian Psychedelic-liciousness 

Also quite Psychedelic

Selda Same: inca inca bir kar yagar I can’t begin to describe how much I love this song.


Wednesday #ski #colorado (at Loveland Pass)

So epic


Wednesday #ski #colorado (at Loveland Pass)

So epic

My new home!

Lily is a five-alarm fire

That rages inside my heart

Bigger than love

Saying goodbye to the old apartment with a few good friends.

Awesome band, awesome song.

"He knows not his own strength who hath not met adversity." – William Samuel Johnson

It’s a minor consolation, though it is not insignificant, that the absolute worst months of my life were accompanied by the absolute best grades of my college career.

There is something to be said in overcoming adversity whenever and wherever it rears its ugly head. Here’s to getting through tough times. 

Don’t tell yourself you’ll never get through tomorrow. You will. And with the right attitude, and with the proper work ethic, not only will you get through tomorrow, you will prosper.  

This was my favorite painting at the Denver Art Museum’s Becoming Van Gogh art exhibit. Minutes turned into hours. Unnoticeably. I was truly transfixed.
When you see this painting in person, it comes alive. The blades of grass curl over in a wind-storm, the clouds roll in from a far off plain. If you look hard enough, you see the peasant farmer (woman?) gazing up at the sky — either in astonishment or begging for moisture. The detail is unbelievable, genius even. 
Van Gogh’s art has meant a lot to me, to put it into simple terms. His short career is inspirational beyond words. His drive, focus and tenacity are remarkable. The fact that he never sought fame in any of his work is humbling. 
I am so happy I was fortunate enough to see his work. I will never forget it.
