About me?
Well, I stay up too late and get up too early, before my hands know what to do. I turn up the volume when Bruce Springsteen comes on the radio and I sing until my lungs give out. I like the smell of gasoline and the color brown. I like walkie-talkies and watches. I like pliers and cameras and banjos and ampersands and the shape of hands. I still share secrets with Count Basie. I like calendars but I’m not organized enough to use them.

I like my coffee black and my whiskey sweet. I wear my boots until the soles fall off.

Bought a new stethoscope…accidently had it delivered to my previous address. 

Excellent news: my parents are over there often and can check for the package.
Horrible news: I had to identify the package to my dad, who then asked “What kind of stethoscope? Oh, a Littman…those are expensive.” And then had to listen to a 20 minute money management lecture (the same one I’ve gotten since I was about 10 years old) about how I should be saving my money. 

My dad is a penny pincher.  I’m convinced he’s secretly on his way to being a millionaire (I’m only being half sarcastic about that figure) just because he is that good at saving his money.  And I get a lot of that from him and take his lessons seriously, but seriously.

Charlotta María Hauksdóttir wanted to use her craft of photography to show how families are intimately linked to the homes they inhabit.

In her series of photos entitled Moments, Charlotta set up her camera in the corner of a family room and snapped photos in regular intervals. Afterwards, she combined the images into these lovely composite photos.

this tiny house designed by jessica helgerson (photos by lincoln barbour) is definitely a favorite… a family of four in 540 square feet… oh, and there’s a guest bed, too!   great use of vertical space… AND a ton of recycled and reclaimed elements… 

in other news… i just found out this evening that my brother in law helped build this…
