On Friday I looked out the window to find that our baby birds had discovered the world beyond the rim of their nest. They were looking around like it was entertainment…they also kind of remind me of those two old guys up in the balcony on the Muppet Show. It was totally fascinating to see … Read More
Does it make me some kinda nutjob if I post about pigeons multiple times in a row? Because I’ll be honest, I check on them like 50 times a day. I don’t mean to go all National Geographic on you or do some kind of bait-and-switch from photo blog to some weirdo baby/pigeon blog thing. … Read More
We’ve got baby pigeon snuggling happening here, people! They hatched in the night and were on their own for about an hour this morning—there is a lot of cuteness in that little flower pot. They are like little bobbleheads in there. I had to film it and that prompted me to make a little mini … Read More

We had a conversation about fields the other day because hey I’m still roaming these parts that I grew up in and in these parts fields are everywhere. The conversation got me thinking about a lot of things pertaining to fields and open spaces and what’s on the other side of open spaces and how … Read More
I may have mentioned this before, but we visited the North Shore of Lake Superior on a regular basis, multiple times a year, as I was growing up. It is a place that has shaped a lot of who I am. And so I go there often in my mind, wherever I may be in … Read More
A weekend on the German island of Usedom.
The week started at the riverside Kiki Blofeld, for which I have no video. I think this had something to do with the place feeling a little bit deflated; things are changing—the most glaring evidence being the view across the river, where the opposite beach bar had been razed. It sat silently in a sad … Read More
Not too much going on at the office this week in terms of the Report. This is what I’ve got: -Homogenous campaign posters going up all over town featuring a large mug shots of the candidates -Julian at the Yes Bar giving me a lesson on how to properly balance and relax on his bar’s … Read More
