saturday night was spent saying goodbye to a dear friend. thats the one on the left in case youre curious. theyre both friends of mine, but scott is the one leaving us. and for those in the know, he is also the subject of the on-again off-again crush ive had for almost two years. hes only moving two hours away. i wouldnt say we were close enough to make the drive solely for a visit. but we were close enough that we touched each others lives. and im happy for him. getting this new sports editor job and all. the job he should have had last summer when it was up for the taking at our paper. but thats another issue. so first. a surprise party at the legion (where i took the photo). and then a couple of raucous hours at the pub. and a hug goodbye. and a call me when you make it to the boston globe. and a you have no idea how much youll be missed later. and hes gone. back to the eastern part of the state.

but as i fell into bed that night around 230am. all i could think was. what am i going to do without the one thats always making me laugh? even when things are at their worst. it never failed. i always laughed. and it always felt so damn good.

i despise this whole blogger thing. i really do. nothing updates correctly. most of my archives are missing. i cant make any revisions to my template. and theres no possible way to get any kind of assistance from the folks that run the show.

but enough bitching from me.

theres a new entry over yonder. which has a much brighter tone. i swear.

quote of today:

"how does it feel to wake up in the morning and just go...'i rock'?" said to me this morning when i walked into the office. by my editor, kevin.

guess he liked my protest photos from yesterday.

today i stepped out of the newly opened restaurant i was at for an assignment for work. i stepped out around 2pm. i took a deep breath. and my first thought, as i made my way through the slush and crystallized snow to my car. my first thought. was 'ahh it smells like summer'.

i love the way each season has its own smell. to me anyway. one reason i dont think i would be happy anywhere other than new england for an extended period of time.

it was seventy degrees today. tomorrow its back to the low forties. but it smelled good. to get a taste of summer for a day. though it was funny because everywhere you looked. people didnt know what to do. how to dress. like they had forgotten. you would see a woman in shorts and tank top walking ten feet ahead of a boy in a down parka and winter hat.

and suddenly i was hopeful that this most bitter winter. really will come to an end at some point.

and. as i drove by the new joe wolfe field on my way back to the office. the baseball diamond thats covered in at least six inches of snow still. i could almost hear the crack of the bats. and i cant wait for opening day.

tomorrow (technically? later today) starts my nine day run at work. the other photographer is on vacation. and while i usually look forward to these frantic times that only come twice a year for me. this time. im not. my job takes a lot out of me. and right now. i just dont have the energy. with all the other stuff weighing me down in my outside life right now. my body is tired. my brain. my heart. is tired. and i just feel like i dont have what its going to take. and tonight. she was rattling on the phone about all the tabs and the previews and potential special issues that will be going on this coming week. and i was just. holding my head in my hands. thinking. how the hell am i going to pull this off?

hopefully. after a day or two of work. ill get in the swing of it. and it will just keep my mind off things. hopefully i will find the strength and the energy. from somewhere. along the way.

ive been catching up on my email tonight and i read a post by a guy on the photojournalism list im on. i found what he said to be quite inspiring. for me anyway. so i decided to share it here as my quote of the day.

"just remember in the right hands anything can be a story." said by josh ritchie.

why does looking for a car have to be such a long, drawn out, difficult, stressful experience?

perhaps because this is my life.

my two requests: sunroof. four (or all) wheel drive.

thats it. so youd think it would be easy, wouldnt you?
