always nice to go for a walk in the forest. I usually take some convincing first, but once out there, nature takes over.

during the humid, green days of summer, you need a balance between sitting in front of the computer, pushing pixels (if you're foolish enough to attempt to make a 12-minute animated film), and getting up and about.

otherwise, you just go nuts.

dream away...

my new friend, a reminder to look anxiety in the face and take oneself less seriously.

 hawaiian fern.
trunk sculpture at the grove.

time's slipping into the future. I need to make a few posts to catch up on what the activities have been these past couple of weeks. why would anyone leave this place? well, money: it's expensive. but nature makes you feel good, and you feel knowing that thousands of miles of ocean separate you from the rest of the world. at least I do.

more maui days.

week 2

went to a documentary screening of New Yorker cartoonists - "Semi Serious...". wish they'd shown more Steig, but the focus was on the living, and it was very interesting, especially seeing artists trying to get their work in the magazine. it never seemed strange to me, doing it, but it did look a little idiosyncratic, watching it on a large movie screen.

 happy hour in the clouds.
 yardwork - taking out the wattle.
stump forest.
