Two weekends ago I spent time inside a yurt. I decided I needed to unplug and get away from it all for a day trip. And it was a pretty special time.
So it’s been far too long since I’ve posted. And it’s time to fix that.
I’ve had a writing lull because I’ve been so incredibly busy. Which is great. After a few months of moving to the nightside shift, I’ve adjusted my personal time and taking every chance I can to explore and grow.
But it means weekends are more valuable than ever.
So let’s begin. And we’ll start with, naturally, the Broncos.
November 6th, 2012. The day Barack Obama saw another term, marijuana was legalized in Washington and the day same-sex couples were given the right to marry.

After jumping into the fray with fantasy football for the very first time, my world has been turned upside down.
I track waiver moves, I check in on third-team running backs coming off the bye, I attempt to transmute the lead of football errata into the gold of victory.
And I fail.

It was inevitable. There was little choice. My will would crumble. My resolve would falter.
I would join fantasy football.

23,000 acres, 36 square miles, 51 destroyed homes.
The Taylor Bridge Fire.
Here is the behind the scenes look at what we saw covering the fire.
Western Washington is one of those places out of a postcard. Or a dream.
It’s a boundless forest mixed with mountains and water. It’s Boulder by the sea. It’s Endor minus the Ewoks.
It’s amazing. Here are some of my favorite pictures over the last eight months. Has it been that long?
Big day for Sonics fans. Huge.
Arena developer Chris Hansen has been pushing for a new basketball and hockey arena in Seattle. He wants to bring back the Sonics. Badly. And what better way to keep the ball (see what I did there?) rolling than with thousands of passionate fans?
Tuesday, May 1st was May Day in Seattle. It became another Occupy protest day and much much more.
People took to the streets in the hundreds and thousands and it got intense. Here’s some pics and a look behind what happened.
