Sebago Lake in Maine is a special place. I've made a habit of visiting almost every year. The lush forests surrounding the lake, the wide open water, bald eagles, world-class lake kayaking, fishing, and pristine sandy beaches are all the things that make it worthwhile coming back to year after year.
There is a myriad ways to make a side table for the living room. So many different shapes, sizes and materials available. I've wanted to make something that would be modern, simple, functional, and durable.
After a series of sketches and renderings, I've settled on a design that is inspired by contrasts found in nature. A design that is beautiful by simplicity.
The New England seacoast is a magical place. Small fishing towns, beaches, miles of marshland, islands and inlets. The seacoast is a source of income for many local fishermen, business owners hoping to cater to the bustling summer beach industry, as well as a source of inspiration and creativity. Many antique shops and galleries are scattered throughout towns like Essex, Portsmouth, and York.
I am a lifelong progressive. I'm proud to say I am not a registered Democrat. My views are too far left, therefore, the Democratic Party is too far to the right for me.
New Hampshire has relatively good voting laws compared to states like Arizona and New York. Luckily, one does not need to be a registered Republican or Democrat to vote in either primary. Live Free Or Die.
As a lifelong progressive, registering as a Republican was never an option for me because I do not associate with conservative views. But I did not want to register as a Democrat either because the Democratic Party has drifted towards the right over the past couple decades and no longer represents the progressive base.
Recently I was working on building a DoJo-based widget (DoJo 1.X uses VanillaJS in the background) and I've spent a lot of time trying to figure out why a globally-defined array is getting updated across different instances of that widget.
Distracted in awe of Whistler's beautiful scenery, I suddenly realized that I only had one pole as I was about to get off Crystal Chair. Most of the lift line goes over rugged, wooded terrain, so my chances of finding the ski pole I somehow dropped were slim. Nevertheless, I spent about an hour trying to locate my pole, but eventually just ended up buying new poles.
That's how I ended up with a single pole, with no use to it.
Rather than throwing it out, I decided to upcycle it and make a wind chime.
Colorado doesn't need a ten paragraph blog post to explain the awesomeness of this place. So this time around, I won't bore you with the details. Not to say that there isn't much to talk about when it comes to my trip to Colorado a few weeks ago, but I figured this time, I'll let my photos do the talking.
