Though I’m always tired, I often find it difficult to sleep. Decided to pass the time with some photography. I’d normally edit the results, but I think a few of the photos stand up on their own. I hope everyone is well, and enjoying their day/night.

I’m still working on getting everything together for the official launch of my skate company. It’s taking some time, but I’m patient. I’ll just keep at my other projects and keep skating in the garage until it all clicks. Well, maybe I’ll let my toe heal a bit first. Broke it the other day. Anyways, I’ll let you go (whoever you are). Hope you’re doing well.
P.S. The new deck I got from Blood Wizard looks pretty nice with those glowing rails.
I press my face against the glass, just to feel the cold
Memories from distant past, when I was ten years old
I hold the images, reach out for the sensation
Try my best to save them, frame them, keep them clear of dust
Frost kissed cheek, daydreaming on the school bus
Lost in thoughts of thoughts lost that I thought when I was lost
Pines greens, winter whites and greys all blended up
Dappled with orange light
Blurring by my window
My kaleidoscope of ice
Season clawing at the window
Season standing at the door
Watching the frost form
Branching out like ivy
Parallel reality, of straight lines, and spires that shimmer like glass when the sun breaches the horizon
The light holds little warmth in this place
Winter is approaching quickly in Canada, and I feel like I’m not even close to prepared. There’s quite a lot that goes into the process, especially when you live in an older house. Here’s to hoping that I get everything sealed up and ready in time, so I can enjoy the few benefits of a long, dark winter.
Have a lovely day, wherever and whoever you are.
Waiting for change is a losing game
Wasting finite moments
Devoid of substance
Shell of a life
Filled with fruitless hoping
Endless coping with loss
Stuck in a rut, the whole world up above
I’m looking skyward
From here, I’ll go unheard
Mired in thought
Lost to the waking world
Still as stone
Blinded by the visions
Reminiscence, mixed with hopes and wishes
Flitting by while I remain
Shade of Winter
Reaching out into light
Cold night air, clinging at the shadows
Flowers in the door yard
Beauty of the fall
A hard Winter’s warning
Mid autumn morning heeds the call
Frost stalling for a moment
Lingering in darker places
Soon to mist, then gone
Traceless, weightless vapors
Chased off by the Sun
Change of pace.
I’ve been repairing and collecting consoles, controllers, accessories and games this last month. Perhaps something of a midlife crisis, but it’s been fruitful. Any boxed item in this picture is actually in the box, with everything included (even the paperwork). The Action Set and the Super Nintendo are both in near mint condition regarding the actual hardware, though the cardboard has aged in the way that most does. Since coming into my care and being worked on, this photo was the first time they’ve been out of their climate controlled, sealed containers. Something inside me really disliked setting it all out on the carpet, regardless of having vacuumed and dusted. I’ve still got to clean the shells of a couple systems, so I suppose I’m off to do that. Luckily all the soldering is out of the way for now. I hope everyone else’s month has been as productive, even if the world is set against you.
Blood drank dry, split like the carcass of a hare
The hunter takes their prize
We’re all rabbits running scared
