I just realized this is my first landscape painting. I guess you could say I’ve been inspired by the scenery :) This is a piece of the great Olympic mountain range.

Definitely not a bad view for lunch. #loveSeattle #codefellows

Reason why living in Seattle rules : when you go out to your mailbox you discover a huuuge wild blackberry bush is growing all up on it. Hooray for foraging!!

"Someday You Will Be Loved" by Death Cab for Cutie

"Marching Bands of Manhattan" by Death Cab for Cutie

"What Sarah Said" by Death Cab for Cutie

Since I’ve become such a dancer, a mover, and a shaker, most of the music that I listen to is dance, funk, and electronic music. This is mostly a good thing because most of the tunes I dig are positive and uplifting, a stark contrast to the super dark emo and folk music I used to listen to. 

But lately when I’ve been driving by myself I have been blasting Death Cab for Cutie and allowing my soul to be moved by Ben Gibbard’s heart-achingly perfect lyrics. So today I am going to share with you a whole bunch of awesome music videos from “Directions.” Enjoy the auditory ride back to 10 years ago :) 

"I think you know you’ve found someone special when you meet them for the first time, and it feels like you’re just picking up where you left off. You kind of look at them and think
‘Where the hell did you come from? Where the hell have you been?’"

Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan worked together on making The Golden Record, a message sent out to space for any extraterrestrials to find and learn about existence on Earth. Ann Druyan had the idea of putting human brain waves as one of the sounds used so whoever finds it could learn and understand human thought. While working together, they both fell in love with each other.  Carl proposed to her and shortly after she decided to record her brainwaves. So instead of sending out brainwaves thinking about history and science and all that was originally planned she recorded herself thinking about love, true love and that’s what was sent out into the unknown universe. If you don’t think that’s beautiful you’re lying.

God damnit Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan are two of the most beautiful people.

"I remember when I was younger and I wanted to be beautiful; now I’m older and I want to be intelligent. I want to burn hearts with brilliance and engulf souls with compassion. I want to be loved for my thoughts and nothing else."
