• O R E G O N • C O A S T L I N E • I’m a child of the ‘90s. It was a weird time to be raised: pre-internet everywhere, pre-cellphones and Spotify. When I was in elementary, Jr. high, and high school I envisioned owning a record store when I got older. This was still the pre-Napster era. But, in truth, I got my Bachelors in Business Management largely because of this desire. By the time I finished my undergraduate work, long gone were record stores. Nevertheless my interest in music relayed into radio emceeing, I was an active music writer for over a decade and a half. I loved the hunt--I still do. There’s nothing like finding intriguing new bands and songs. Music is still a huge passion for me. A few years back, after I lost my father, I parted ways with my 4,000-5,000 CD collection. I ended up selling it to a bay area record store in bulk; sometimes I miss having the library of music. It’s better now, don’t get me wrong, I certainly prefer the Spotify era, but there was something about finding a unique CD in a record store, something no one told you about, yet you discovered it and the band felt intimately your own. I remember how alternative rock radio was a savior for me back then. If I got scared or anxious over anything, I knew I could turn to radio and something would come on and clear my mind. I still have a fondness for some of those albums. The other day, Natalie Merchant’s “Carnival” came on randomly in the world, and I remember thinking how fantastic her voice was when I first heard her. How unique it still sounds. I remember listening to her on the radio and getting lulled into daydreams. Notions of leaving California, of wandering some glistening, throbbing city somewhere. I listened to her album Tigerlily yesterday for the first time in probably two decades, one of those bookmarker albums from the mid-‘90s, and one of the few that holds up well today. Makes me wonder what else from that era I need to revisit, I spend so much time hunting on the fringe, I forget about classics. Song of the Day: Fleet Foxes – “Grown Ocean”

Making new friends in New Caledonia. 🐶 . This pup was the absolute sweetest (and I’m normally a cat person). I set up my tripod to take some photos and he wanted to be in every single one of them. . I am blown away by the first 2 stops on @halcruises 17-Day South Pacific cruise. Next up...

• S H E L L • B E A C H • Had a fun last minute trek to Shell Beach last night with @luketyreephotography as we watched a decent, but unextravagant sunset dim the coastline. I felt lucky to find a couple patches of wildflowers to compose into. I'm kicking around some trip ideas for this coming weekend. I have a three-day break and would love to get out to Lone Pine or something. Though I don't think the wild flower blooms have made it too far north, seems like most of the blooms are between LA and San Diego, which may mean as the weeks continue, we'll see the spread of flowers through the valley and start popping up the SLO County. As much as I enjoyed the rains this season, they did a number on my house and I'm happy to have warm weather to wake up with. Having a downed-heater through this last winter was a hellofa adventure, one I'm not in a hurry to repeat. So glad spring is arriving. Couldn't come soon enough. Song of the Day: M83 - "Outro"

• L O N E • P I N E • Been hitting the work grind hard recently. I haven't had a ton if time to be as creative as I'd like, but here's an image from Lone Pine making my heart ache as it has been far too long since I've wandered the infinite granite boulder fields. I need to get a camping trip in the books soon. Hopefully, I'll have some time this weekend to knock out some images and bask in a creative headspace. I'm finding that the creative moments in my life are the equalizer of my streses. Same goes for my long walks. Song of the Day: Beaxh House - "Dive"

Quando o apito da Maria Fumaça rasga o silêncio do céu e assusta os pássaros em descanso próximo da estação, os turistas já estão amontoados a sua espera. Enquanto isso, muitos ainda curiosos com o passeio, dão uma conferida nos vagões antigos e se interessam pelo processo de manobra da locomotiva, feito ali na rodoviária de Tiradentes nos trilhos do trem. Outros ainda esticam o pescoço para conferirem o espaço de onde vem toda aquela fumaça com cheirinho especial. Os bancos de madeira não deixam a viagem menos confortável. As janelas grandes são os presentes os turistas que não largam de suas câmeras fotográficas ou para aqueles que querem admirar a paisagem durante a viagem de 30 minutos, que acompanha o Rio das Mortes, até São João Del Rei. #photooftheday #f4f #art #minasgerais #mg #artofvisuals #bbcbrasil #nat_geo #nationalgeografic #tiradentes #stockphotos #gettyimages #photoobserve #fantasticlife @blacknwhite_perfection @natgeoyorphoto @canoncollectiveofficial #instagood #f4f #travelphotography #beautfuldestinations #photogrid # travelgran #ig_masterpiecek #viajando #brasil #mariafumaça #trem

Fascinating how consistent behaviour leads to consistent results By no means am I following the plan to the T. However it's very interesting to see how the body reacts to consistency in what I eat and when I eat. It's very fascinating to see these patterns develop as I consumed same food, drank same amounts of water, slept similar amounts and yeah have not started exercising yet. It's very interesting to see and learn that the body is so pliable. And thus gives you ability to control it. This pliability of the body is only achieved when there is some form of hormone balance and this is what the Fantastic Life app is about. #personaltrainers #nutritionist #nutritionists #foodasmedicine #functionalmedicinecoach #yvrpersonaltrainer #vancouverpersonaltrainer #fantasticlife #bctech #bcstartup #yvrstartup #yvrstartups #techvibes #livinghealthy @stevesakamoto @roberto.gonzalezmartin1 @chris.clarkerpm @baldwini @ed.cardenas @rep300 @antoinev87 @oxygenpoco @goldsgympoco @stevenashfitnessclubs @westcoastiron @bodybuildingcom @tricitiescoc @hvacjess @bnirainmakers @bni_dynamo @georgiastraight @604now @chuckyblueeyes @dailyhivevancouver

Believe or not this shot was taken on a very cold day in Kew Gardens, Richmond model @tesscoffier did a fantastic job battling the cold and windy weather: she definitely needs a medal. I wish her all the best, note to self must figure out why Instagram keeps cropping my photos very annoying at times.  #model #beauty #compostion #exhibtion #camera #lovely #makeithappen #positive #happy #photo #photoshoot #art #cold #weather #peace #colour #eyes #grounded #kewgardens #green #nature #tree #fantasticlife
