Last night I noticed that the scallions I put in a glass on the windowsill have put out new growth and it felt like some kind of miracle. I frantically looked in the fridge for other produce I could save–we waste so much!–and saw that we have at least two more green onions I canContinue reading “It’s Alive! and Upcycling”
Our house was built in 1960. We have a room that we call “the cabin” and I decided to decorate it partly with pictures from a 1960 issue of Field and Stream. Here are the results. I’m super happy with these little collages! This weekend I also started building a planter box from my ownContinue reading “The Cabin and Other Projects”
As a graduate student and “knowledge worker,” most of my life revolves around processing information. One of my academic fields–information science–deals with how people gather and disseminate information, and how people turn it into knowledge, while the other–history–involves gathering and interpreting a vast amount of data to craft an argument about the past. I useContinue reading “Knowledge Work, Emotional Labor”
The difference between good food and great food has a lot to do with its relationship with place. Tonight we ate at Lucilla here in Tallahassee, and it was really good. I had the vegetable pot pie–a flavorful concoction of corn, squash, asparagus, tomatoes, field peas, shiitake, and scallions in a roasted shallot tomato veloutéContinue reading “Food and Place: Lucilla and The Grey”
These have been sitting around since a rainy day back in July. I had my trusty Nikon Lite-Touch Zoom 120 with a roll of Ilford HP5 as we dodged summer showers from shop to shop in Railroad Square here in Tallahassee.
Finally got my scans back from the Chicago film. It was a cool, foggy day when we made our way across the city last month gawking and taking these photos. I shot these with my Nikon Lite Touch 120 Zoom and Ilford HP5.
I’m working on a project based on the Florida Seminole Wars Heritage Trail. Because the Trail is primarily spatial, I started by creating a Google Earth layer listing all of the points by region. I just learned that WordPress.com disallows kmz uploads, so I imported the map into Google Maps instead. Here’s a link. HappyContinue reading “Seminole Wars Heritage Trail”
Well, it’s all over now save for the thinking. Of course, what is anything but thinking? Walking, eating, even breathing, are just thinking in motion. Travel is no different. The sights, sounds, smells, and feelings we seek by traveling are, at bottom, just another way of thinking through the world. The trip I’ve been thinkingContinue reading “Chicago in the Rear-View”
I shot a couple rolls of film during the day today, so it will be at least a week before I can post those, but here are a few shots from the Lincoln Park ZooLights, Grant Statute, and North Avenue Beach tonight.
