“My life has been a steady stream of reinvention while somehow maintaining a strangely familiar baseline— drastic career changes, drastic moves, and drastic depletion of funds. But always the same ideals and desires. While scanning the photos I’ve taken since the last photo issue, a very drastic change is once again apparent. I’m entering very unchartered waters and I’m thrilled. Sandcastles, reptile rings, teeth on chains, yogurtarians, tiny voices, a steady diet of races, Robert Smithophiles, giant eyes, bike rides, and a sea slug mutual admiration squad are all soothing to these salty-kelp-stained eyes.”
