Anarchy is starting to make sense

Anarchy is starting to make sense

The United States used to be lots of fun.
What is a version of the world without the will to despise it?

I just finished “Then We Came to the End” by Joshua Ferris: a horrifically accurate depiction of personality conflicts within a failing advertising agency. Five stars!

Second Attempt Crossing

A beautiful poem by Javier Zamora.

I am looking forward to experiencing Carne y Arena at LACMA… even though tickets are sold out at present! That’s a positive thing :)

Smith Rock

I don’t know why it took us so long to drive over to Smith Rock State Park… but I’m so glad we finally made it. The view was phenomenal! We brought our city bikes thinking they could handle some of the ‘easy’ trails… but they couldn’t. So we just walked around and gawked at all the rock climbers.

In the evening we stayed at an AirBnB in Bend. There was an incredible sunset [not pictured] and we ate while enjoying a view of tubers floating lazily down the Deschutes River. Wow!

Harvest 2016

Harvest 2016

Lots of breakdowns (and a FIRE) but it was still great to be part of the Jochim Farms wheat harvest in MT. Everything was bittersweet as it’s the last year the farm will be operated by my family. However, three cheers for Dad’s retirement and also to over 100 years of truly amazing work on the farm.

Here’s some interesting typography from the (very much closed) Timber Trading Post outside Arch Cape, Oregon. We stopped here to check directions and I took a quick picture, over the top of such feeble protestations as “Get in the car! We don’t want the meth heads to get our license plate number!” It’s pretty great though, this sign! Even though the little wooden pine tree looks nothing like a ‘T’… it still makes total sense. It’s so bad, it’s good. Keep on being your crazy uneven self, Timber Trading Post.
