family conversation

A¬†weekend a little over a month ago was amazing. All of my family was there. My nephew, my niece, brothers, sisters, parents, and pets. The last time we will be together for two years.

Dining Rooms.

I love dining rooms. I have spent large portions of my life in them. With people. By myself. Being loud. Playing guitar hero. Eating food. Making food. Doing work. Not doing anything. Learning.

Sk8 For Lyf

‘Guy’ is friendly, and hilarious and very hospitable. Like a lot of teen skaters, he is fearless but he is set apart by his smile. It’s as if he’s your Dad and when smiles everything is made right. We met up and sat around for a bit just chatting about the week and some tricks […]

doing less and chilling more

Usually im no good at picking accents. But this guy was clearly from South Africa. So i asked – “Were you born in south Africa”. It was the start of a conversation that will stay with me forever. I was sitting in a soup kitchen, amongst a cute family with twins. And up comes this […]
