i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...
still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!
my first post is here -- check it out!
as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.
for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

sunrise / earthrise
like it? give it a click, then!
everyone loves a sunrise or a sunset -- but lately, when watching one, i get keenly aware of my position on the earth and in relation to the sun...
i took this yesterday morning at cape sounion (more about that later), looking towards the sunrise, and i remembered the wittgenstein anecdote:
wittgenstein and his companion are on a stroll through cambridge.
‘i’ve always wondered why’, says Wittgenstein, ‘for so long people thought that the sun revolved around the earth.’
‘why?’ said his surprised interlocutor, ‘well, i suppose it just looks that way’
‘hmm’, retorted wittgenstein ‘and what would it look like if the earth revolved around the sun?’
