Hello, Lovine.com

Wherever you go, there you are.
Sweet Sixteen!!

The great gift is in teaching us how to say we love each other, without speaking. I can't thank you enough for all the times you remind us of what's important: to be together. And to take frequent pee pee breaks.

Love you everyday, my best man.

Live Fast, Drive Slow, Love Hard


Cheers to all the things, places, people and animals that make our lives truly worth living. Live fast, drive slow, and love hard!! Love you all day everyday, baby!!!

8 Years Ago, Forever


8 years ago, I married this beautiful woman at a very special place in the middle of Death Valley.  It was far from what our culture would construe as traditional, but we knew in a heartbeat that this was our church.  And I thank my lucky stars that as the days turn into years, the fire we started only grows stronger, and we continue to live out our dreams, create, and make the world proud.  Shoutout to my best man and ring bearer, @heynickel.  Love you and @tangerinelove forever until the end of time.

Enjoy the long weekend folks!

I honestly think the real measure of wealth is the amount of time you spend being happy.
Because when all your time and money goes into the VW, you have no choice but to convince yourself that it's true ๐Ÿ˜‚

Happy 15th!

Happy 15th birthday to the coldest hearted adventure pupper there ever was!! Continue to teach us that we don't need words to let others know we love them. That we don't need more stuff, but more time together. The most important things in life you learn from animals, and I always thank you for allowing us to be part of your pack. LOVE YOU @heynickel!!

With Love, From All the Boys

It's true that if you open up my heart, you'll find a miniature Kat purring about, making sure that all the boys are fed with a steady diet of love and adventure.. Happy Birthday to our dearest @tangerinelove, xoxo from your not-so-secret admirers

Feel Alive At Home

The beautiful #Adventurewagen - feel alive from the moment you turn the key, till the moment you roll into home in the great outdoors.

Into Nothing

I was recently forced to purge hundreds of photos from my Flickr account, as they changed ownership and subsequently changed their free model. It made me realize the impermanence of anything online - everything is bound to the terms-of-service, and the reality is that all this representation of thoughts and feelings are nothing more than ones and zeroes in a hard drive somewhere, waiting for the plug to get pulled.

Not that the idiosyncrasies of half-thought drivel are of importance to anyone, but I wonder if it bodes the same for our memories. That one day, everything will be forgotten.

Clear Skies, Warm Hearts

A romantic dinner date, in a deserted place very special to our hearts.. ;) Happy anniversary @tangerinelove!


Not that anybody cares, but I fixed some old bugs that prevented older pictures from showing up... At this point this blog is mostly a sporadic personal exercise for (the lack of) introspection.  

I wish I could say that I'm infinitely wiser from the 15 years when I began this pet project.  All I can say is that I've successfully deviated into a lot of other side-interests that have left me into some odd jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none.

And, my mustache is apparently 6 years old this month!  Half a decade, folks.  A wise man will one day tell you:  You are the hair that you grow.


I have no plans to live forever, and maybe we should start acting accordingly.  One of my favorite pastimes is to listen to Christian radio - don't ask.  Crackle, pop, follow the word and earn everlasting life.  What does it mean to have everlasting life??  I can't imagine.  I don't understand.  To live forever?  What does that mean?  It makes me feel several shades of stupid considering I had the opportunity to ask that question in school for several decades, and here we are out of the gate questioning the validity of our existence. 

But honestly, I don't get it.  To live forever?  To what purpose?  

If I do not choose the path of righteousness... I die? Forever?  

Maybe we need to embrace that these moments of our lives are meant to be cherished, that what makes us human is the ephemeral nature of our consciousness.  The world has not, and will never revolve around us, and even if we successfully convince ourselves that we are all that we will ever know, it does not diminish the fact that the zeitgeist will change, and to a degree the minute details are inconsequential.  

Maybe the only promises kept are the ones we create ourselves.  Maybe we need to start believing that our lives are our own to create, that we need to be good precisely because we won't last forever.. because what would the point be, otherwise?
