Well, hello there

It's been awhile, hasn't it?

I’m not sure how it’s been almost two months since I last shared a photograph. Okay, that’s not entirely true, I have a pretty good idea: I’ve been spending an awful lot of time outdoors since mid-fall when San Francisco became its beautifully crisp Indian Summer self. I enjoyed as many gorgeous sunsets as I could before Daylight Savings returned, hopped on my new bicycle to get some wind in my hair, started running and punching and kicking things before the sun made its daily appearance, volunteered with SFJazz and TEDxSF, and found myself dancing onstage for the first time in three years. If there were a petition for a 34-hour day, I’d be the first to sign.

Glamping = glamorous camping. Satisfying your craving for the outdoors and your penchant for a good meal, nice glass of wine, a comfortable bed, and (when you’re with me) an impromptu rockstar photo shoot.

Earlier this summer, over two dozen of my friends and I ventured out to Angels Camp in Frog County for the weekend. We stayed in cabins, had full electricity and wi-fi, took coin-free hot showers, and filled our bellies with some deliciously prepared meals.

Some of us went ziplining, one of us foraged for wild mushrooms, most of us enjoyed Starbucks in the morning and ice cream cones in the afternoon. Despite this, we totally roughed it: we got bitten by bugs, caught frogs, had a frightening encounter with a wild horse, let a toddler swallow (nearly) whole a bag of chewy bears, and went nose to nose with an emu. Oh yeah, we roughed it alright.

Week 49: One jump froggy

AM's signature froggy jump in black and white

49/52

No motion-based 52 Project of mine would be quite right without including my signature froggy jump. For the last 10 years, anytime I had the opportunity to jump on demand, it looked a lot like this. The evidence is below.

This is my first in what hopefully will be a series of in-air closeups. I posted a few different crops of this image on my Facebook page for people to vote on. This was the winner. Thanks for the feedback, voters!

My new LIVE/JUMP LOFT was ceremoniously warmed and launched last Saturday. There was tasty food, belly-aching laughs, and jumping — lots and lots of jumping. See the full set here.

Week 24: Purple and Gold

If you ever want to meet a true Lakers fan, go find my dad. He’ll be the one with a Golden Retriever dressed up in a purple shirt at Monday’s Laker championship parade in LA.

I’ve been a Lakers fan since the ’80s when I would go to games at the Forum with Dad. But unlike him, I’ve never bought nor worn any Lakers paraphernalia. I’m not that type of fan. Things I also don’t like: bumper stickers and pretty much anything touting anything. That’s why I think it’s funny that I inadvertently set aside a purple top and yellow (or gold if you will) sweater on Wednesday night when I was packing up for last night’s flight, which coincided with Game 7, to NorCal after 10 days in SoCal.

Go Lakers! And Happy Father’s Day!
