Now what? Awake again, another crazy dream, another gray morning. And reality is just so much paler than the conjurations of the overnighting mind. To be released finally: a relief. The hangover: a reality. I feel like shit, as if the sleep had poisoned my blood, leaded vapors permeating my precious blood brain barrier.

March 18, 2012 | Big Sky over Vancouver
It appears that something tumultuous is going on there, weather-wise, in Vancouver.
Panorama taken with Photosynth for iPhone, edited in Photoshop on my Mac. Photosynth seems to only save low quality versions of files, which is disappointing. I think it would be fun to take a bunch of panorama photos from your neighbours’ balconies, and giclee them to canvas for the living room walls that aren’t windows. Voila! Instant awesome.
*EDIT*: March 19th – I think I may have found something better. Autostitch app for iPhone gives better resolution (check it out if you’ve got one of those godly big monitors like mine…much better than the dinky Photosynth business above!). Here is another version where 3 pictures were taken using the normal iPhone camera (could’ve gotten wider angle but wasn’t thinking of it at the time) then stitched using Autostitch, then edited on-phone for colour using the sunset setting and thick black border using the Camera+ app. You can use the Autostitch app to take pictures too but I didn’t have that app last night, now did I?

In class, I looked out the window.
Someone had walked in circles today, around some trees, in a sleepy grey garden dusted with sugary snow.
Who are you? What were you thinking?
It got me daydreaming:
March 13, 2012 - in class (LING 480) doodle inspired by that anonymous person who walked in circles in the snow around the trees in the AQ garden at SFU.
Dear snow walker, I hope you find what you are looking for.
Thank you for inspiring me today.

Guess I was bored in class today.

Actually more like stressed out to distraction, and imagining things.
My sternum has been very tight of late.

These ones have been blooming through the winter in the rock garden at my apartment complex. Very Vancouver winter tolerant.
