I got a new lamp!

I think it's going to be with me for a while.


Got it in Concord. It kind of feels like it found me.

I Love Earth Day

Great article by Michael Pollan about climate change and whether it's worth changing all the little things in our lives to make our impact less...

Why Bother?

Eventful times at work these days. Campaigns are not boring. Of this, I can assure you.

Saw Leo Kottke in Exeter, NH on Saturday night. I love that guy. What excellent music. I'm listening to his and Mike Gordon's second album, Sixty Six Steps, right now.

Sending love from sun-filled New Hampshire!

Personal Finance

I'm exploring how to save more for 1) retirement 2) a rainy day 3) between campaigns.

Finally I'm not struggling with debt and I'm saving. I am right where I want to be.

Choosing whether or not to go back to school will be hard knowing that I will incur debt again.

I loathe debt.

Happy to be saving and happy that it's Friday!

Books! I buy my books from Powell's Books in Portland, OR instead of from Amazon, since they're like the Walmart of the web. And I try to not support Walmart in any way, form or fashion.

I'm expecting
The Sexual Politics of Meat by Carol Adams
The Portable Dorothy Parker by...Dorothy Parker
The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan
Why Not Me? by Al Franken
Sailing Alone Around the Room by Billy Collins

Very excited!

And it's spring today! That doesn't mean it will be tomorrow, but it is today and I'm over the moon about it. It's amazing what a little blue sky and sunshine will do for the ol' disposition.

Exercised this morning, had some oatmeal, scouted a location (one of my favorite things to do) and am at work, doin' it up. I had a lot of time to think this weekend about what I want to do with my life.

Right now I'm at: television production or on the ground management of disaster relief.

For the time being, Directing Operations for a Senate race I love is juuuuust right (like baby bear's bed, chair and porridge).

I'm out. Let me know how you are!
