Davis, CA

davis-ca-63-of-66

There are three kinds of people here—it is now apparent to me: the Tall, the Asian, and the Others. The Others are a silent majority—I am one, too—and they move in-and-out of the occasional Tall and the clouds of the Asian, silently. The place is majestic in its own right, just look at all the […]

Miami Skate, 2016

Miami-2016 (14 of 28)

I’ve been skating with the Landskaters [FYI: the website appears to be down at the moment…] club for quite some time now.  It’s a great fun bunch of people, not without attitudes, and we are always out to have some fun and grab a beer mid-way.  Personally, I think skating is one of the best ways to […]

Portland, OR

Portland-2015 (7 of 13)

Spent a day in Portland, OR.  Note, I went there in July and it’s December now, I know.  I’m just using the holiday time to catch up with posting. Anyway, I recall thinking this is a really gorgeous place to visit and must be a superb city to live in.  Can’t say anything about the […]

Anyway, I am here on business but, as in any travel, I […]

Wilmington, Delaware

Wisconsin, 2013

wisconsin_2013-90

So I took a day to visit my good friends in Wisconsin.  One of my first publications is with Alexey and we keep reasonably close contact for the last 10+ years.  He just doesn’t seem to change and neither does his wife; their daughter, however, is no longer 12… she’s 21.  WOW!  That was a […]
