opera


Sydney Opera House. Sydney, Australia. (2010).

It's pouring rain the day Kim drops me off at the airport. It's pouring rain the night she picks me up. I suppose if I were sharper, I would've seen some kind of omen in that, but I'm not, so I don't.

As it happens, tonight is the last time I get to hold her the way I want to. Sobbing, she walks away while I watch, and she doesn't look back.

This one, hurts.

reach for the sun


Two for the sun. Devon, Canada. (2010).

Just as things at home begin to heat up, it's time to hit the road again. Ironic, no? Ahhh, well. Good things come to those who wait, and travel to the far-flung corners of the South Seas provides opportunity to see people missed and reflect on life's unexpected directions.

We'll see you in a little while.
