A favorite piece of art and understanding by Mike & Maaike. As they put it, “The world’s most influential religious texts are brought together and presented on the same level.”

My friend’s have this in their house and I pause to admire it every time I walk by.

SkateABLE vs Non

Wednesday, September 5, 2018

People’s Liberty opened up a new space in Camp Washington that changes throughout the year. Currently on tap? SkateABLE vs Non, an indoor skatepark for every level of experience.

That monster over the door is pretty awesome.

Decorative gourd season

It’s Decorative Gourd Season.

I should mention, I don’t spend my time at stores everyday. But I do like to shop in very small ways. When your commute is 30 feet, it’s good to get out, and pictures of the gym wouldn’t be lit as well.

That lumberjack look

Spent a part of the sweltering Memorial Day shopping at an outlet mall with a friend I’ve known since 1985.

They didn’t have these in my size.

Urban Artifact

Sunday, September 2, 2018

Met up with a friend that had a rare few days in-between chemo sessions where she could enjoy a beer. Though nausea does play a large part, there’s also a strange side effect of not being able to eat, drink or even TOUCH anything that is cold. (Which is a real bummer considering what the thermometer has been up to the past few weeks.)

We decided to visit Urban Artifact and get flights of their seasonal sour beers, and boy did we luck out—so many great beers on tap to try.

I’ll put our order after the cut using descriptions from the taproom, but add that they’re the most adventurous brewers around. I normally don’t favor fennel in things, but in a beer with some lemon? It was savory and totally fantastic.

Boomtown and Birds

Not only do we have avocado toast in Cincinnati, we also have biscuits served with cocktails, beards and electric scooters.

This Sunday I experienced all of them. (Outside of the avocado toast.) I also learned about the brand Grave Before Shave which is a notion I didn’t realize I subscribed.

I was worried about the scooter. My first attempts were terribly unnerving and unsteady. But eventually? It clicked into my equilibrium and I was able to cut through the extremely muggy heat and make a breeze.

Good times.

A gift from my mom. Haven’t broken the seal yet, but noting the moment with her garden as a fine backdrop.

Say hello

Friday, August 31, 2018

One of the prompts of my PhotoScouting project was to Say Hello and ask a stranger to take their photo.

I’m always trying to get better at it, to slow down, relish the opportunity, and be steady of heart and hand.
