  • Yayoi Kusama at The Broad

  • I still feel rather ambivalent about the 'instagrammable museum' phenomenon, with galleries, installations, and exhibits designed specifically with the selfie and instagram in mind. On the one hand, I love to post these cleverly crafted images just as much as the next person, but on the other, churn[...]
  • 2017 Year in Review | 365 Seconds

  •  Another year has just flown by! When I think back on 2017, it's tempting to just brush past it and conclude that it was just like the previous few years.

Of course lots of food and friends were involved, and I [...]

  • Shenandoah Road Trip

  • We picked some dates in October to make a little fall getaway to Shenandoah National Park. Little did we know that fall foliage wouldn't be peaking for another two weeks, and when it did it would be the worst color on record for the last several decades. Too little rain means too little color in the[...]
