Last Night of The Year

Well this certainly was an eventful year. In life, in work, and in every nook and cranny.

It is New Year's Eve. Always by choice I do nothing. The new year is going to arrive whether I cheer it on or not.

It's Eli and Wilson and myself here tonight. We made a new barbeque chicken recipe on the grill, we heated frozen corn, we ate it with garlic naan. We mixed a cocktail of ginger ale and orange juice and watched the film Avatar. That wasn't nothing really at all. It was everything.

Leaving this night with two images that surfaced from our Nokia Holiday Realness campaign we shot for Geometry SF that seem fitting for the year past. The top one seems melancholy, kind of worse for the wear but still standing. Beaten not broken, but screaming with color. Hopeful for all that lies ahead.

The last one is an inspired Dada-ist moment that makes me smile every time I see it. I love every detail and will note this simple little gesture that suddenly changes everything.

Wilson Edward Archibald / 9 Years Old Today!

Who has the cloak of invisibility?
Who can move without a sound?
Whispering to animals
Listening to grass
Whose feet don't touch the ground?

Happy Birthday Wilson. Nine years old today!
