in which I write about stuff

happy new year, y’all

at some point soon I’ll write a long thoughtful piece about the year – which has been full of upheaval, change, growth and stress – but for the time being, here’s a peek at a new site design I’ve been playing with. (reports of weirdness are quite welcome)

a new album

misc photos, December 2002 – I ended up writing my own little photo album script, just ’cause.
