This is our photo-shoot week at work, when I go out with a hired photographer and capture our landscapes looking their Summertime best.
In addition to directing the photographer, I get to hose down pavements so they look wet and sparkly, clean up doggie and kid toys, and, if the clients are home, shoot the breeze with them. It's the "pinch me, I get paid to do this?" part of my job as a landscape architect.
For lunch today the photographer and I grabbed some sandwiches…Continue

To honour Pride Week, I’m inspired by one of the most famous and flamboyant men in rock and roll history, a man with one of the most powerful singing voices the world has ever heard, a man loved by heterosexual hooligans, glam boys, and everyday people: Freddie Mercury.
The man was…

I'm going to Europe for the summer and decided to write down some beliefs before going to keep them in mind on my trip. Here they are, feedback welcome.
The 5 Faces of Man
- Keep a cool head under all circumstances. The world will always back your positive actions, never your negative reactions.

- Your instincts are always…Continue

I know that I have started this blog a bit late but the events that I am about describe have set in motion a series of discussions and many thoughts. I have needed time sort through them all.

Sunday, Father's Day, was the Big Game day; the 19th century baseball club supposedly forming in our town's first game.
There was one little problem: I don't know how to play baseball.
Well, I do in theory, but the last time I played was during my summer camp days, when I would roast in the outfield because that is where they put me, long decades ago (the 70s).
I abhorred other sports I was forced to play, but for some reason I loved baseball, even though I was…Continue

Here is a link to a special "FATHER'S DAY" program I was asked to do on a popular W. Coast talk radio show.
During the show, we talk a bit about my book 'The DOORWAY Buck'... and a great deal more about FATHERHOOD and 'Father's Day':
1. What it IS (and is NOT)
2. From a son's…Continue

Well today was the first day I started shaving with my straight razor. It wasn’t a bad shave. The reason it wasn’t a great shave had to do with my crappy technique (which I assume will get better the more I do it) and fear. With all this on my mind I began to use the brush to lather the soap. I applied the soap to my face the way warriors put on their war paint. I got it all on then picked up my razor and held it the way it was intended to held and started staring fear in the eye.

What an incredible drive in this morning. http://www.visitriverroad.com/
My drive takes me down the quiet river valley, past the small towns frozen in time, farm fields with corn just up, summer homes in their relaxed seasonal garb hugging the cliffs; a landscape…Continue
This past Tuesday, I had the opportunity to go cliff jumping near Gunlock Resevoir in Saint George, UT. I believe that this area is called the Spillway.
It was about 8 o'clock at night when I arrived with my two roommates (Skyler and Jason). We hiked up about a…
