K-mart Raft III

A shopping cart and my raft. Similar?

Past a buoy. This isn't a bad single-take edit, if I do say so myself.

Upon further investigation, what I first thought was a log pulled by beavers slowly traveling up the Kennebec River, I now believe could have been the back and dorsal fin of a man-sized fish called a Sturgeon.
I saw several osprey fishing. I was too far away to capture them plunging into the water. I saw an eaglet and heard it's parent screeching at it across the river.

I did a single good deed.

I retrieved my 3-month-lost iPod from a good citizen.

I walk home with my raft on my head.


K-mart Raft II

This time I lost an oar. However, someone in Hallowell had found my iPod that I lost there a few months ago. I think it was behind some sacks of hops.


K-mart Raft

I bought a raft at K-Mart and floated down the Kennebec River until my oar broke.


Nasal Cleansing

I was wondering why I live in America and can't buy penicillin if I have a sinus infection. Why can I buy cigarettes and gasoline and poison, but not penicillin?
That doesn't seem like freedom.
To ease my frustration in my American prison I started practicing yoga. Neti is a form of yoga where you pour warm salt water in one nostril and it comes out the other. It's kind of gross, but at least I can breath.


Harlow Gallery

I have a picture in a show at Harlow Gallery in Hallowell, Maine. The show opened a couple weeks ago.

Maybe Will will be accepted to Harvard in the future. They have at least one great museum. The school has a good reputation.
