Today's exercise didn't go as planned

1 year ago, for day 34 by Yorick Phoenix 🏆

I try to get some exercise every day. Ideally I'll close all my rings on my AppleWatch. Doesn't really happen very often though. More often than not it occurs when I'm away on vacation during which I tend to walk more, hike more, stand more. It's been raining since Friday...

Are we there yet?

1 year ago, for day 33 by Yorick Phoenix 🏆

It’s a long time since I was a bored kid in the back seat of my Dad’s Austin Mini, asking the inevitable question… “Are we there yet?”. At least I assume I asked the question. I believe it to be a question that all kids ask their parents when there...

Tonight I recovered my memories

1 year ago, for day 31 by Yorick Phoenix 🏆

A word to the wise: just because the old version of your OS could read your old movie files, doesn’t mean the new one can. Always double check before you lose precious memories. Tonight I discovered that the old “first baby steps” movies I shot on a Treo 680 smartphone...

I write again

1 year ago, for day 30 by Yorick Phoenix 🏆

Here I sit in my home office finally writing my three hundred words. I have been destined to write them all day but I've been putting it off and putting it off, setting my To Do List reminders to repeat until eventually I just turned them off. I decided that...

Don't be so damn bloody selfish.

1 year ago, for day 29 by Yorick Phoenix 🏆

In an interesting post by @kirstine-granzow-larsen on the need for people to change with regard to how we treat our planet she said: It's selfish and inconsiderate of the next generations. If it doesn't affect us directly, we don't really care. Why should we? I would argue that:...

Drifting into throwaway photography

1 year ago, for day 28 by Yorick Phoenix 🏆

As I was enjoying the hot water on my back in my morning shower my mind wandered on the number of photographs I had taken during my recent trip to LA this last weekend. Very few. We traveled light, two backpacks containg two cellphone cameras, a sub-compact and a DSLR...

An experience riding the LA Metro

1 year ago, for day 27 by Yorick Phoenix 🏆

I've been visiting LA for 20 years on an irregular basis. I've never been a fan of the place, however it's one of those bucket list things - see the stars on Hollywood Blvd, the Chinese Theatre etc. I've done those things, I've taken friends to do these things. In...

I'm "the man", but not "the Boss"

1 year ago, for day 26 by Yorick Phoenix 🏆

Today I'm flying to LA for the weekend, flying back Sunday evening. I arrived at the airport early and experienced probably the fastest security check since 9/11. Being TSA Pre means I don't have to unpack my bag, worry about liquids, take off my jacket or shoes. Just dump stuff...

300 words on an iPad in bed

1 year ago, for day 24 by Yorick Phoenix 🏆

I’m snuggled in bed with a heated blanket on. The furnace is on the blink so it’s the best place to be. I’m attempting to write my three hundred words using an iPad Air as I’m trying to leave my computer in my office at the other end of the...

Why a 2 hour 45 minute delay got me home 2 hours early

1 year ago, for day 23 by Yorick Phoenix 🏆

Today I flew home to California from Arizona. I made sure I had plenty of time at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport to pick up quality apparel with my name on it. I'm rarely in Phoenix, but whenever I am I take advantage of this. _Note: because I was only...
