Do you love the rush of excitement?  

For the last week playtime with either an HTC G2 or Logitech Revue preoccupied my free time.  Partly novelty to blame, but mostly the sense of unknowing.  What hidden gems will these new gadgets unlock?  Although previews provide a glimpse of capabilities, actually owning the product starts the full immersion.  While amazed by all the features, already the devices have been put to productive or fulfilling use on nearly a daily basis.

I forgot the ease by which we slip into routine. I mean "we" in the exclusive sense. It's difficult for me to slip into a long-term routine due to forgetfulness. I rarely immerse myself fully to routine in life. Who knows the cause. But lately, I feel disconnected from my "routine" of life in Chicago. Not to say I had one.

The random take aways from recent travels I list below.
  1. Doing laundry is underrated. Every hotel should allow guests to do their own laundry for free.
  2. Photographs capture moments when you can find them, but only when selective. Facebook allows me post massive amounts of pictures for vanity's sake: I'm thankful for that. While you may enjoy the 200+ pictures of your event, I only need a handful to invoke memories.
  3. I'm horribly blunt with communication: to the point that I often times fail. I either misunderstand or am misunderstood. I'm thankful for the understanding of my friends, and the unending patience and understanding of my wife.
  4. Everyone is a social being. Everyone feels the need to be included; everyone hates feeling excluded. Even if that means being a target, attention is paramount and feels good.
  5. Peer involvement creates exciting situations. I avoid saying peer pressure because of the negative connotations associated with that phrase. There's something that just makes it okay to be caught up in a moment when surrounded by peers. I don't think I could always be caught up in this, though. Now that I think about it, this may be part of the New York life (and what's lacking from the LA life): the constant presence of peers.

For Me

Photography can provide more than just 1,000 words. Photography may provide 1,000 memories. Photography may provide 1,000 feelings.

When I was younger I flipped through the channels and somehow wound up watching "A Perfect World." I had no real concept of Stockholm Syndrome. I had no idea how emotional a movie could be. I had no idea how deep my own emotions ran. For the first time I could remember, I cried because of a movie.

I was alone at the time. There was nobody there to help me deal with my emotions. There was nobody but myself. I didn't know how to deal with emotions, so I tried my best to pent it up. I tried my best to ignore it. I tried my best to pretend it was something else. I did all this to my detriment. Now, I understand feelings are just a part of life, and I'm best to deal with it.

Walking on Wrigley Field

400 YardsOn Saturday, October 2, 2010, I and a guest have the opportunity to play on Wrigley Field.  This once-a-year opportunity is granted through a lottery limited to residents of Wrigleyville, I happen to win this year!  Of course I take my wife (who has the fortune of already experiencing this event), my glove, a baseball, and my camera.

Life and Death

It's difficult to think about life when consumed with the idea of death.  

I want more from life than slaving through one day to the next.  I want contribution with or without attribution.  I want to change the world.  I strive each day to make my wife happy.  I hope this is enough.
