i forget sometimes about my 22 years of page layout, 20 years of computer graphics, 20 years of photography, 13 years of photoshop, 10 years of professional design experience.

so i've been experimenting again in photoshop during slow times at work, messing around with some of my photos.


unrelated to design story of my moring:
while stopped at a red light this morning [branciforte and soquel] i saw a girl on crutches hobbling down the side walk. Seriously. Hobbling. She had a coffee in one hand. Very difficult to do on crutches. As a lover of coffee i really felt bad for her, and if i hadn't of been running late for work i would have stopped to help...and as i was thinking that a guy in a work truck who she was walking by got out and asked if he could help her. The world isn't so bad i'm thinking.

Darrell, Allen and I were at MJC back in the day--yo--together doing computer graphics classes. He is having an art show out in Delhi at a local coffee shop. If you want to get out of the big city lights of modesto for an evening of music, art and coffee give this a try...

2 ears, 2 earphones

originally uploaded by th3ph17.
So it has been about 4 months since my surgery, and for about 5 months before that i had not been able to use both earphones for listening to music.

not comfortably anyways. It is still a bit odd, but i'd forgotten what real sound is like. Amazing. Time for some Gorecki.

Saturday after watching "the science of sleep" i kept thinking about
the world in my head. i wonder if perhaps it isn't all real after all, just, separate.
but separate.

so past years aren't decades ago, everything is happening at
once--and it is non-linear...A constant shattering of time.
