Follow Your Bliss



Same Beach, Same Baby, Different Tie Dye!

It takes a lot of energy to get Lilo, Canyon and me to the beach but it is so worth it. When we leave I feel so happy it is bordering on bliss. It’s that good.


Tie Dye Beach Baby

We arrived on the beach around 6:20pm and didn’t leave for almost two hours! If I had food and blankets we might still be there!


Baby Dr. Who-Wizard World 2010

It’s an important moment when a Father gives a Son his first sonic screwdriver…

So way back in April Canyon attended his first comic book convention. So way back in April we decided that he would be a baby Dr. Who for Wizard World. So that gave us 4 months to get his costume together. So we started making it at 11pm the night before.

We are not artsy craftsy people. We are good at pulling together costumes and props but actually creating a TARDIS out of cardboard was work. I know the final product looks pretty simple but it took us hours! Hours I say! But we are pleased with the final product.

Zombie Disney Princesses love Canyon…(and apparently Indiana Jones too)

Even baby Timelords get tired…


New Religion by Bill Holm

New Religion
by Bill Holm

This morning no sound but the loud
breathing of the sea. Suppose that under
all that salt water lived the god
that humans have spent ten thousand years
trawling the heavens for.
We caught the wrong metaphor.
Real space is wet and underneath,
the church of shark and whale and cod.
The noise of those vast lungs
exhaling: the plain chanting of monkfish choirs.
Heaven’s not up but down, and hell
is to evaporate in air. Salvation,
to drown and breathe
forever with the sea.

Almost Night Swimming

Picked up John from work for sunset at the lake. I wore my swimsuit, just in case I was tempted to go for a swim. Of course I was…

Then Canyon wanted in…

He didn’t need a suit!

I blurred out his secret private place so he’s not embarrassed to read this when he’s older…

When we got back to the car it was dark and decided to pull off the “taking off my wet suit in the car with people around trick”. I was doing an admirable job-turned off dome light and working with a strategically placed towel. The one problem was a car, about half a block down that had it’s brights on, slightly illuminating me. It was nerve wracking because it was just enough light to make it clear that I was trying to change clothes. I wasn’t sure if they even noticed me, but when I was done and we closed the door they turned their lights on and off about 5 times. Again, was this about me? The only I was concerned is we are now in a digital age. Growing up the worst thing that could happen was someone might see you trying to change clothes. Now it’s someone might see you trying to change clothes and post it on Youtube.
