Must do: Create

I've been thinking lately about imposing a daily requirement on myself. Something like "I must create for one hour per day." I see the stuff that my brother does (no picture there of the cool new knife he made yet), my sister too (ask to see some of her drawings or journal covers, maybe she'll post them to her blog), or my friend Micaiah's musings (you must read his post on violence in movies)(oh yeah, he paints too), and I either feel inspired or a bit discouraged about my slackitude. I need to get back on that creative train! The last significant creative thing I did was my album Pluckings back in 2000 I think. There has been a little creativity, such as periodic posts here, or the 365 daily self-portraits, but I need to make some rules to ensure that I move some of the time I spend on consuming over to creating. Any recommendations on what I should require of myself?

There be Waves here! (or not)

I've been playing around with Google Wave and figured I'd try embedding a wave here using the Madoqua Wave Bot. I'm sorry that those of you without Google Wave (which probably means all two or three people who actually follow this blog) won't currently be able to see or interact with the wave, but I'm sure that you, too, will be able to get your Wave accounts before too long.

UPDATE: Hmm, not working yet. Let's see what I can do here...

UPDATE: Oh well, I'm gonna abandon this attempt for now. I'll wait until they get Bloggy working again and maybe try this again in another post.

Surfing in El Salvador

From El Salvador 2009

It's been a few years since the Costa Rica surf trip, and all of us from that trip (Don, Mike, Frank and I) have been getting progressively more antsy to do another one, so we finally made it happen. We headed down to El Salvador, where we stayed at the Las Flores Surf Club. We had exceptional accommodations and service with a beautiful point break that we could see from our balcony. We took boats to Punta Bongo break on three mornings, where we had the waves all to ourselves. If anyone is looking to take a surf trip, this is a destination worth looking into.
