I suppose that’s a lesson people still need to learn: corruption breeds contempt and enough contempt and people will start to rally and demand to be heard.It’s a really sad circumstance all around.

I took this photo on this day last year. It was one of the first things Amanda and I did when we came back to Seattle (visit the Japanese Gardens).

It’s strange to think that it’s been a year. Strange but definitely good.

Someone captured this cool picture of a rhino surfacing. It really makes me want to go on Safari.

Amanda took this picture of Nikki enjoying a good book and sent it to me at work.

She knows the way to my heart.

Fall really is one of my favorite times of year for all of the colors and seasonal fun.

Just watched an episode of Samurai Jack (haven’t seen it in years). It was one of the best things to come out of Cartoon Network. Heck, I would say it’s one of the best animated shows period. It had all sorts of great little lessons about the Hero’s Journey.

When I have kids, it’s going on the list of things they have to experience. And I’ll be right there watching it with them.
