Utica Reservoir


My wife and I had our first opportunity to get out for a few nights without the kids to get a little sanity time. We talked about everything from backpacking to staying at a B&B someplace, then the idea came up to get out far enough away from people like backpacking and yet take some of the comforts with us. This is made possible by traveling in a way that natives people have done for thousands of years. By canoe.

Desire to Create

I feel strange today. I have this desire to create, but I have no vision. I feel really disconnected from my artistic side yet I yearn to get it back.

I was going through some images I have created and this one seemed to reflect my mood. It's inspired by an Arno Rafael Minkkinen image done in the same pose (though much better than mine). Sometimes all we can do is marvel in the creation of the masters and hope to glean a spark of their imagination.
