  • Wmotd, Week 16

    I like to walk. A lot. I like to hike in the woods but also explore the cityscapes on long urban walkabouts. I used to always have headphones on when walking but these days I mix it up— sometimes with headphones, sometimes without simply enjoying the environmental soundtrack. What do I listen to while I…

  • Traveling through the snow

    Even though the books are long since published, and the movie(s) shot by two different directors in two different languages, I still can’t help but like The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (aka Män Som Hatar Kvinnor) and the soundtrack produced for the American movie version directed by David Fincher. There’s something about the album…

  • Brain Candy

    Today finds Charm City buried once again, in a blanket of sparkling white. The effect is beautiful, bewildering and even a little inspiring though at some point after hours of shoveling, the snow will become less than charming. In the meantime, here is a piece of visually stunning eye/brain candy straight from Japan for you,…

    I drink a lot of tea and coffee, thus mugs are one of the items that tend to join me in my frequent travels; but I wasn’t always a mug user. Thanks to this handy instructional video, though I was able to master the delicate art of mug use and ownership:

  • Rusting on the vine

    It has always fascinated me how seemingly trivial things can trigger one’s memory on a dime and transport you to another time or place in an instant– hidden snapshots of one’s life peppered throughout our daily comings and goings. This morning, paying bills at my desk and watching the rain pour down, iTunes surprised me…

  • One of those days

    It’s just one of those days; we all have them– you wake up and the world feels grey and unwelcoming. You scuff around and feel sorry for yourself and maybe mope a little. Well today, I’m having one of those days. BUT instead of moping about like a fool when I feel like this, I…
