The Last Days of Summer

He raises his arm as the warm sun breaks through the cloud and grazes his face. His toes stretch out and sink in, allowing the cool sand to send a tingle up the spine. But the time passes... the air cools and the sea has lost her refreshment and exchanges it for a bitter bite. These are the last days of summer, foolish whims are past, and our ivy covered campus beckons us back to her gothic halls.

Where are we...

Adventuring on a whim is what we live for. Leaving yourself vulnerable to whatever the trip may have in store. There's nothing fancy about this experience, just a barefoot child's passion for life. She picked me up and we were off. Searching for a specific sunflower field, we held a very loose set of directions in our hands. As you can tell from the photos.... we never found that sunflower field. But that's life sometimes. Next time it might be good to have more defined plans... but that always takes the romance out of the experience.

Farewell Captain

You forced me to go into the woods and front the essential facts of life. My voice was heard from the rooftops of the world as I sounded my barbaric YAWLP. I indeed wanted to make my life extraordinary, as I broke away from silent desperation. Yes, I too wanted to contribute my verse!

The loss of a celebrity has never pulled on my heartstrings until this day. Oh captain, my captain! Mr. Keating you were real to me. From the first time I listened to your lecture, awestruck... You helped me discover a language deep inside me I never knew. Leading a creative life, despite the fears of not succeeding. Carpe diem, seize the day! Oh, how I reveled in the lessons you taught.

Thank you Robin Williams, for being so real to me.

Out of the Loop

There is an obvious difference between a man, and a man who knows his tailor. A quarter inch here, a taking in there... these adjustments go a long way. The flashing of the ankles, the oxford button down peeking through the blazer sleeves, and not needing a belt through the trouser loops. Each one of these details take, not only your outfit, but entire closet to another level. (Without hurting the bank... usually)
