Gear Post 2012: Zen Edition

Okay, okay, okay… I’ll write the gear post before the year’s over! One of the things that keeps me from writing all year is that it never really feels like the stuff in my pack has changed all that much.

The 2010 Travel Gear Post

Now it’s time for the one post that everyone’s been waiting for. The 2010 Gear Post.

Vermeer Quest Complete!

In either 2013 or 2014 I decided to see every Vermeer painting in the world. I’ve always been drawn to his paintings, and when I found out that there were only about 36 (two are disputed, one is stolen and most likely destroyed), it seemed like a reasnable goal to go see them all. Many… Continue reading Vermeer Quest Complete!
