love love love

I wasn't looking for it. It came out of left field. It was simple and the puzzle pieces fit. I see a bigger picture. I didn't expect to fall as hard as I did. I didn't expect to be as head-over-heels as I am. I'm glad i did. I found it. I found her. I found love.


can you keep up with me?

...on the daily

in cycling... the city bicycle community is growing. Each monthly ride, new faces and bikes appear from the woodwork. My days have turned into routine, geometric routes, running parallel maps in my head: from home to work, work to home, home to zia, so forth and so forth. A few stops here and there but definitely enjoying my new side of town. Each street has been ridden on so often that my body makes the proper jerks, and movements, to ride the perfect, smooth line. That plus great weather and a killer soundtrack is pure bliss. Sprint and Destroy is just around the corner and training is in the process. A few cats from SLC, and hopefully LA, will be in attendance.

in music...
my record collection is growing, not only in size but in quality. At my neighborhood record store I am racking up the ZIA Record points. Music is life.

in literature...tackling the epic Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.

I had heard news a few weeks ago that my step brother received an award for a short story he wrote in school. It had been a topic of discussion at the dinner table; when I would trek to Henderson to see my family. I'm really proud of my brother's achievement and applaud his mature writing ability. It would be far too great of a stretch, to imagine that I had some influence on this; family is family. Finally, after great praises from my parents, and a slew of young writers association

-See Radiohead Before I Die: CHECK

Looks like Radiohead are making their only U.S. stop, supporting their In Rainbows record, in New York City. Headlining Friday and Saturday during a three day festival. Well after reading a report from Pitchfork about the lineup and details (Put on by Paul Tollett, the same organizer as Coachella, inside the Liberty State Park, Statue to Liberty backdrop, Animal Collective, Matric, the Roots, etc) I immediately jumped on the oppurtunity and bought tickets twenty minutes after they were on sale. I think both dates are now sold out, referring to the band's website.

August 9th is a long ways away and no plans have been made yet. All I have is a date and a few hours to dedicate my time. Which begs the questions of: How to get there (1)car, uhh nope, definitely don't even trust it to take to to LA, let alone across the country. (2) airplane, maybe, would definitely take the fun out of seeing the east coast, but would get me there in a snap. (3)Amtrak, maybe, it would probably be better to fly somewhere in the midwest, so I'm not stuck on a train for a week.

Either way it's getting done, and going to get done in my regular fashion. Alone. Messenger bag. Camera. Books. I haven't seen the east coast in some time. excitement.
