2014: A Year In Pictures
Life! The days are short, but when you go to count 'em up, you find that entire years have amassed.
January: Indoor concrete. The spark of a brand-new year. Cold nights, the moon frozen in the western sky.
February: Heart-shaped cookies. Sunny days and then days of blizzard. Ducking inside to drink tequila and then walking home through a snow globe.
March: A bouquet of waterfalls. The pine-laced air of central Oregon. Rain, sun, and how all the cherry blossoms pop over night.
April: Long walks 'neath the flowered drooping trees. The institution of backyard mini ramping. Lefty in the morning light.
May: Golden-hour grinds. Campfire nachos and sleeping under the stars. That sweet, pine-sap smell that tells of an Oregon summer.
June: Falling down a kind of rabbit hole of summer.
July: Zoo-bombing on warm nights. Skate camp. And that night we took the rainfly off our tent and peered straight up into the dome of stars.
August: Heat. Haze. Big roving rain clouds. Summer ends softly like a feather floating to the ground.
September: One last river day. Trish and Cairo, tying the knot. And all of my buds in my backyard for my birthday.
October: Warm fall nights, soaring down empty streets with the leaves flying away. Halloween hijinks that are done by 10 p.m.
November: When your life turns on a dime.
December: Backyard skate secrets. Forgetting things that need forgetting. Copious celebrations and an apocalyptic wind storm.
