2011

Let the Sun shine (Anchorage, Alaska)

Back in 2011, I lived in Palmer, Alaska. I drove about an hour down to Anchorage to visit a friend, then drove back to Palmer just after 1:30am. During the drive back I didn’t need my headlights on to see, but I kept them on so other cars could see me more easily. It was like driving during a very long “dawn” or “dusk” period.

“Wrong eyes”

“Wrong eyes.”

(What I told myself during a lucid dream last night. I was flying, things got dark as I flew higher, so I thought “Open your eyes,” only to find myself staring at the bedroom ceiling while still dreaming.)

Came across a moose eating a tree

Diary entry from January, 18, 2011, Wasilla, Alaska: While on a walk this morning I came across a large moose. It was just standing there, eating a tree. I didn‘t bother it, and it didn‘t bother me.

Had to go outside to see what apartment I live in

The crazy thing about moving so many times is that I just had to go outside to see what apartment number I live in, so I could order something from Amazon.

Day one in the new apartment (Broomfield, CO)

Five years ago I moved to Colorado and was living in two hotels, one on the south side of Denver and another on the north side, trying to decide where I wanted to live. On this day (October 11th) I moved into my first apartment in Broomfield, and made this post on Facebook:

“Day one in the new apartment, slept on the floor, and there’s nothing to eat. Planning skills are still questionable. But the fireplace is nice.”
