Friday, January 28, 2011, 12:05am, Opryland Hotel, Nashville. Rehearsal for State Of Bliss Magical Mystery Panel. The lights were hot. My feet were sore. This is not remotely interesting, but I liked this picture. CONTEXT.

A Word Cloud Is Worth 49 Words

November 8, 2010

My One Word, wordled. Or rather, my 49 One Words, as decided by you (duplicates were eliminated) and then transcribed into Wordle for the purposes of making a word cloud, which is so last-month-media, but still.

A Thousand Words

February 9, 2009

Jasper at Blissdom Conference, Nashville, February 2009 How he looks in that photo? That’s how I felt at Blissdom this weekend. Bemused, fascinated, rumpled. Bright-eyed despite the sleeplessness.
