New Art

I’ve got such great friends and family.  Elizabeth saw the above artwork at Stumptown (one of my old haunts in Portland), so she emailed my family and a bunch of my friends and they all chipped in and got it for me.

a day in the life of rhino

Someone pointed out to me today that lately all I’ve posted is poems.  That my posts don’t tell enough about what is actually going on in my life.  So a brief update seems to be in order.

Work is good.  It has been pretty busy lately, but that’s a good thing, it makes the day go by quickly.

Outside of work I’ve been pretty busy as well.  Been hanging out with various friends, going dancing, hosting beer tasting parties.  It’s been a blast.

Today’s big news is that I bought a plane ticket to NYC.  And to make things even better my best friend is coming along with me to NYC.  We’re going in the middle of April.  I’m very excited, I’ll get to see my little sister and hang out with a couple of friends I haven’t seen in quite awhile.

The month of April is shaping up to be a great month as I have plans for all but one weekend already.
