Back in November I’d done some research on kids coding apps. I made a scratch account but wound up playing more with Scratch Jr. on the iPad with my daughter.. I’ve been spending more time with it and I’m having a blast just goofing off. Here’s my sweet dance moves:
If I’ve learned anything from software development, it’s that the only way to make sure something is really strong is to spend a whole bunch of time finding out where it breaks and make it stop breaking. This is a sentiment I understand pretty deeply on a personal level. I like to see how far I can […]
What a wild ride it’s been. I left my job at PNCA at the end of June 2016. I had a glorious summer with my daughter — the first one we’d had together since I started grad school in 2013. I also biked a bunch and enjoyed the sunshine. Starting in the fall I went […]
The other day juniper couldn’t sleep. She was distraught and frustrated. I got into bed with her and when she started expressing her frustration I would say “it’s ok, it doesn’t matter. You don’t have to worry about sleeping. You don’t have to go to sleep right now. Just enjoy being in my arms right […]

I went with Signal Fire on a one week backpacking trip to the Lost Creek Wilderness in Colorado. We found the creek! 🙂 and it was beautiful.
Today’s bug of the day “Eristalis Arbustorum.” Looks like a bee, is a great pollinator, but it only has two wings, so… it’s a fly! They are often called hover flies or drone flies. Thats a great way to tell the difference, there are a great many flies out there acting like bees. They are […]

I wrote this last year on the Signal Fire trip to Northern Arizona in Speing 2015: The sun is going down and the vibrant sages and oranges of the canyon and brush are slowly changing to soothing greys. It is so quiet here. I feel like my head is the loudest sound in this canyon. […]

Today, sitting at my desk, there was a loud, low, rumbling and the building shook in response. It was probably a passing truck, but I imagined an expansive, thick, stampede of a cloud, effortlessly washing over the city, erasing everything in its path. I imagined lifting my hands to the sky in surrender. I thought […]

I watched forks over knives again tonight. It is reminding me why this vegan diet idea is a good one. I feel old. I am 30 pounds over weight. I have fat on my upper ribs and it’s uncomfortable. My digestion, although better than it used to be, is still not so great. I don’t […]
In January of 2014 I was inspired by friends on Facebook to create a “2014 Jar of Awesomeness.” I was determined that 2014 was going to be a great year for my family. We were going to be so overflowing with awesomeness that we would stuff our quart-sized jar full of little slips of paper, […]
