my favorite laugh.

When Evan finished his first semester of—official—nursing school, I did a little celebratory dance for the occasion. And—of course—I watched the video over and over, because I'm addicted to that laugh. The beginning of this journey feels like so. long. ago. Because it's been a really long journey—this whole Evan-in-Nursing-School thing. He has worked nights… Continue reading my favorite laugh.

A Love Letter. Re: 20/Nothing.

Dear All, I can't believe I haven't talked about 20/Nothing on this here blahg. The whole International Documentary Challenge was an insane, amazing experience. Through one of Missoula's craziest blizzards, Sarah Meismer, Caitlin Hofmeister, Josef "Tuna" Metesh, and myself spent five days making a film we love about a guy we love: Evan Smith. We… Continue reading A Love Letter. Re: 20/Nothing.

triannual torrential.

Things have been up and down and beautiful and sleepy and tough and smiley. ——— Wondering about blahgging: “It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.” - Mark Twain.

where i’ve been for the last week…

Rafting the Middle Fork of the Salmon River was [hands down] one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Words trying to spell out the laughs, scares, beauty, realizations, breathlessness... would fall short. So, in hopes, here are some photos to explain... [in almost completely random order...] [a week for the books. a time… Continue reading where i’ve been for the last week…

[wull hallo.] I hope you're doing well. I'm doing pretty awesome. "Oh, why?" you ask... from across the room... wondering why I'm dancing like that.  [the happy burst that comes from deep within... spurred by the simplest thing.] "Because I got a plant in the mail today... A plant that lives in a dinosaur." HUGE… Continue reading act your age or care.

Some things I just want to share... [this song.]   [this hilarity.]   [a star wars photo.] i just think this is so hilarious. boba fett and darth vader gossiping over coffee, r2d2 looking on disapprovingly and leia checking her texts. just another typical day in the galaxy.   [and this song.]   [oh, look! … Continue reading why is my house all the way over…
