autumn's breath

SOUTH KOREA | Tuesday, 28 Oct 2008 | Views [336]

nite is calling

SOUTH KOREA | Sunday, 26 Oct 2008 | Views [299]

i can't hear much for the din of boisterous people around us. every table has a group of friends, mostly young university students, and almost everyone is basking in a soju glow. the girl on the other end of my cell is barely audible. and what i can ... Read more >

in between dreams

USA | Wednesday, 10 Sep 2008 | Views [410]

two weeks in squamish and i haven’t a post to show for it.  i spent almost everyday climbing and was usually too exhausted to have enough energy to put my thoughts into a coherent piece of writing.  days on the rock were followed by big meals and soaks ... Read more >

changes

CANADA | Thursday, 10 Jul 2008 | Views [283]

a lot can change in three years. my home has changed more than a handful of times, as has my job. coming back to newfoundland, it's much easier to notice the changes in the things, people and places that i haven't seen in so long. my parents look slightly ... Read more >

CANADA | Friday, 4 Jul 2008 | Views [362]
