The Routine of Change

Ever since I was a youngster in grade school I’ve appreciated the expected daily ebbs and flows of a simple life. I’m talking breakfast basics, friendly hi-fives, and that familiar faux-leather on shiny yellow busses.

Back then I would wake up, go to school, and hit basketball practice after the final…

Breaking The Heart Open

To be pushed and pulled—taken under the surf just long enough to appreciate what’s good in this life—is the only constant pitter-patter we all face.

It’s moved along by time and more commonly known as changeTaking it for granted is all too easy. Acquaintances, friends, loved ones. We try our best to…

General Ghost, Lyndia

General Ghost is a relatively new band, formed sometime in 2011 by Jon Howard and Kyle Rictor. I stumbled across their album Drifter Painter Drinker Sinner rather innocently after it popped up in an Rdio feed.

Desert Ribbons

I recently embarked on an early season desert climb outside Tempe, AZ. It was one of those days that tests your mettle, sweat finding it’s way through a helmet’s facets with ease. The sun baked and the road’s ribbons never gave way.

When it rains it pours, they’ll…

A Forest Room

I remember the conversation vividly. A couple drinks, early fall but not too chilly to be uncomfortable. The sun was down at a local hip spot. Think: hipsters and colored mood lights in full force.

She was curious but guarded, not at a place to entirely buy-in to what I…

Childish Gambino, RIP

Childish Gambino, RIP

I started off as anything but a Childish Gambino fan. A good friend of mine has loved what Donald Glover’s been doing for a while, and in passing often mentioned him in hip-hop conversations. I always laughed it off.

All along I couldn’t get the image of Donald from his…

Krabbé and the Col de la Sereyréde

Krabbé and the Col de la Sereyréde

Kilometer 106-108. Climbing. Hands on the bars, my wrists in front of me. They’re wet.

Kilometer 109. Col de la Sereyréde. An opening in the woods. A guardrail, a bench, a half a millstone, undoubtedly pointing out the highlights of a panorama spreading for miles around. Mist.
