Star Gazing

Star Gazing

When I was a child I was fascinated by the stars. As a child I would often lay in the grass behind my parents house and gaze at the constellations, trying to comprehend just how the universe was created. My parents, from a very young age, always encouraged me to decide what it was I wanted to do with my life, so at age 10, I decided that one day I would be an astronomer so that I might some day make a career out of gazing at the night sky. I remember my parents, my father especially being proud that one day they would be able to tell people that they had raised an astronomer. That Christmas...

Maybe

When I was a child, I thought that when I grew up, that all my picture-perfect maps and plans of the future would come true. As of yet, very few of those plans I was certain and convinced would come true actually did. But what if things turned out differently? Maybe I would have been famous. Maybe I would have been successful. Maybe I would have chased dreams similar to those around me.

Enigmatic

In my life I am often misunderstood, and my writing, especially during the days of my youth was often difficult to interpret or understand; mysterious, fleeting, and wild. In a word, enigmatic.

When Is It Time to Let Go

When Is It Time to Let Go

When I was young, I was certain that I was in love. It felt like love, and it is often the tender beginnings of what we assume will lead to a lifelong love and the feelings of which we wish would last forever. Those feelings of elation and hope and promise which one seeks to capture and hold in hopes that things will never change. I would have wrapped up those days of my youth in plastic if only to preserve the snapshots and memories in my mind, and perhaps to gaze upon that particular time whenever a certain unidentifiable smell brought be back to those memories.

Early 35mm Film Photography

This is my early photography work, developing 35mm black & white film at home for the first time. It was mostly experimental, haphazard, and unpredictable. I used sink water, and Kodak developer, and Kodak fixer. Everything was water-based, and inaccurately measured. It was a very janky way of doing things, but at the time, it was the most cost effective means of developing my pictures.

Reading Anthricite Company (Edit)

March 2011 The old St. Nicholas Coal Breaker was at one time the largest and most productive coal breaker in the world; divided into two separate halves that could be run independently—each producing 12,500 tons of coal per day, the plant producing 25,000 tons of coal per day when running at full capacity. It had a single-hopper dumper building feeding its conveyor with two dumping bays. The left or west side of the building accommodated coal hopper cars with bottom dump doors or dump truck loads; the right and east track was a rotary dumper, capable of holding down and rotating two forty-foot...

Joe Martino on Education

  Do we really need college and university degrees? Think about it. If we educated people more effectively and taught them more about themselves, wellness, basic life skills, their passions and how to think, could they not just learn what they love much faster? Have you ever noticed that when people get excited about something they learn it super fast? It's not much about the learning here as it is about the time wasted and the repetition of infective learning styles that are, deep down, more about business and creating debt than anything else. For the most part it seems to more so build...
