Map of tonight’s walk around Tower Grove Park Jun 1 2008

Had a gentle walk around the park tonight with Kuma. Practicing seeing the good and grace that belongs to all of us, everywhere, all the time.

Some pictures from the trip to Monterrey, Mexico Apr 20 2008

Taking pictures at night at Hotel Chipinque in Monterrey, Mexico

Here are some of my favorite pictures from our trip to Mexico for Kristin’s author visit to the American School Foundation of Monterrey in Mexico. We stayed an extra two days in the beautiful mountain resort of Chipinque.

Going to Mexico for a couple of days Apr 9 2008

Kristin has some author school visits scheduled at an international school in Monterrey, Mexico in the next couple of days. We’re leaving later this morning (Wednesday, April 9) and will be returning Monday evening (April 14).

Where is Monterrey, Mexico, you might ask?

This is the hotel we’ll be staying at over the weekend. Even though it looks fun and all, and is supposed to be in the 100ร‚ยบ F range temperature-wise, I will be working throughout the trip.

I don’t think my cell phone is going to be working, however, so email or IM is probably going to be the best way to get in touch while we’re gone.

Still to-do before I can go to bed before waking up in a couple of hours:

  1. Finish preparing tax docs for the accountant
  2. Prepare mileage spreadsheet for 2007 – uggh
  3. Pack
  4. Clean this mess up.
  5. Save new voicemail greeting message explaining why I’m not picking up
  6. Backup laptop (just in case)

My desk looks like this right now:
Finishing taxes before trip to Mexico

So fun. Sort of.

New site design is live (also upgraded to the latest version of WordPress – 2.5) Apr 1 2008

New site design is finally live!

In preparation for upgrading a whole mess of sites to using the latest version of WordPress I decided it was time to finally upgrade my own site and to implement the new design I’d been working on for a while (for over a year now).

Gabriel – So I’m on FriendFeed now… Mar 19 2008

I can see why people like FriendFeed. It brings together lots of services, very easily, quickly, and more twitter-like and simple presentation than Tumblr which does much the same thing but shows larger versions of the content vs. smaller thumbnails. Also, the whole social aspect of it (the ‘friend’ part) is pretty sweet… see who is subscribed to who and easily add them yourself. Cool! ๐Ÿ™‚
