inspirations -

  • sight: the dappling of shadow as daylight moves through the trees. it is a poetry without compare.
  • smell: fall on the east coast smells of nature unlike anything else. the scents of grass and leaves as the seasons change embody an understanding that change is good as life has cycles.
  • taste: coconut cream pie from Leoda's in Maui. Pleasure mixed with the spirit of Aloha, happiness of Ohana , and just the right amount of graham cracker crust
  • touch: intertwined fingers of my wife's hand
  • sound: 'raise your weapon'. both peaceful and energetic interwoven
  • superhero: tough call between iron man and moon knight. i' d give it to moon knight for the mysteriousness and iron man for the swagger.
  • tech: waiting for jetpacks to replace cars
  • non-tech: my  1890's graphite holder. Sometimes there's nothing like the feel of a 5B lead in simple antique vessel
