On my walk today I spied this new Isaiah Zagar piece hanging on a wall. It's very clearly his work, but feels quite different from anything else I've seen by him. Most of his work completely covers the wall, or sprawls out like ivy climbing to conquer. But this is contained within in one deliberate shape. There were a few more small pieces hanging on the outside of the building, but this was my favorite. Incidentally, the building has recently been refurbished and is currently for sale.

One lazy afternoon my brother and I were in our parents kitchen poking around on our computers. We both had Instant Message open, and as a joke I decided to write to him even though I was only a few feet away. His response was "lol" but he did not in fact "laugh out loud" I quickly responded, "YOU DID NOT LOL" and then he laughed.
You can't make this stuff up!
I hope that you had a good thanksgiving.

I'm not a violent man, but I believe that people who lay on their horns in traffic should have parts of their body cut off. Most of the time when people are laying on their horns, everyone involved in the hold up are fully aware of the situation. The only thing honking helps is raising peoples blood pressure.
I also believe that car alarms should be illegal.

I gave my first guitar lesson yesterday. I never had lessons, so I don't really know the best way to learn the guitar. I gave him drawings of all the major chords, and we worked on D-A-G so that he can learn to play The Rolling Stones "Dead Flowers."
It was pretty fun watching him learn how to place his hands, and it was interesting to see where my mind raced to as I kept thinking of different bits of information to share.
Everyone else in my family is a teacher, I suppose it's in my blood.
We shall see.

Most days I wake up excited to face the day. I pronounce to myself, "Today will be a productive day." But usually I'm pretty lazy for a good chunk of my day. In a way I'm hoping a blog will be an incentive to not be lazy about the things I want/need to do.
