Goodness

Got up at 5 this morning, no jet lag, on fire about this project. I grabbed my first latte in 2 weeks (don't tell me I don't suffer for my craft), and then a few tentative sketches in my notebook from the trip erupted into pages of ideas. The project begins to gather some momentum. Sometimes...

Begin

We get a call about a possible architectural project, I hop a flight to Tucson to, you know, "take a meeting", and three days later after a veritable orgy of client decisiveness, I'm booked on a flight to Bhutan where I will nominally join a pre-arranged tour group. I have just enough time to...

Biking: My New Exercise Regimen

I love to exercise. Every morning I do a twenty-minute jog around our street. My favorite companion on my early morning escapades is my dentist in Irvine. Lately though, we’re thinking of doing a new exercise regimen. One of the guys at work suggested biking. Not a bad idea! It’s been six...

Joshua Tree National Park and Tucson, AZ

we left saturday afternoon in bright sunshine, with bags successfully packed away in the trunk and two bikes strapped to the back of my trunk. as the hours passed, the Golden rolling hills and groves of avocado and other fruit trees turned into rocky, sandy terrain sparsely dotted with joshua...

Last Night Stateside - Night 13

Columbus Day, a second rate holiday if that. My hosts, however, were required at their day jobs, so I had the pleasure of taking the Volvo for a ride today. After another conference call tying up some loose ends at work, I drove west on Speedway Boulevard up to Gates Pass Recreation Area in...

Recovery: Take Two - Night 12

Awoke to the sound of train whistles and large trucks removing the fencing and other apparati from last night’s festivities. Our room was at the very end of the hall, at the strange triangle peak of the building, perhaps one of the most character-ful rooms in the place. Though the Congress...

Robyn and Chris's Wedding - Night 11

Today was the big day for Chris and Robyn and the reason for my visit to Tucson. Chad was in the wedding party so he had to leave early for pictures, meanwhile Chrissy and I headed to the historic Hotel Congress to check into our hotel for the evening. Tonight was also the Annual Club Crawl, a...

Recovery - Night 10

We checked out at 9 am and Chad and I took Chris out to the JW Marriot resort at Starr Pass. I had never been to this part of Tucson before, and though it reaked of suburbia, that fact that the resort bordered Tucson Mountain Park made it quite beautiful, and I will admit that the developers...

Bachelor Party - Night 9

My gracious hostess Chrissy agreed to drive me to the University of Arizona campus today for a little walk down memory lane. The University was on a building binge when I was here and it appears that little has changed in the past three years. My first stop was to be “The Vicarage”, an old...

Going back to AZ - Night 8

Awoke from a wonderful sleep on a comfortable couch, a great change from the past two nights on the floor. I suspect over the next six months, most of my sleeps will lean more toward the latter than the former. It was a clear, calm morning, a bit of a oddity in the Midwest Fall, so I ventured...
