things to worry about


I love this "list of note" from F. Scott Fitzgerald:

His book, F. Scott Fitzgerald: A Life in Letters, includes this excerpt from a letter he wrote to his then-11-year-old daughter, Scottie.

Things to worry about:

Worry about courage
Worry about cleanliness
Worry about efficiency
Worry about horsemanship

Things not to worry about: 

Don’t worry about popular opinion
Don’t worry about dolls
Don’t worry about the past
Don’t worry about the future
Don’t worry about growing up
Don’t worry about anybody getting ahead of you
Don’t worry about triumph
Don’t worry about failure unless it comes through your own fault
Don’t worry about mosquitoes
Don’t worry about flies
Don’t worry about insects in general
Don’t worry about parents
Don’t worry about boys
Don’t worry about disappointments
Don’t worry about pleasures
Don’t worry about satisfactions

Things to think about: 

What am I really aiming at? 
How good am I really in comparison to my contemporaries in regard to: 

(a) Scholarship
(b) Do I really understand about people and am I able to get along with them? 
(c) Am I trying to make my body a useful instrument or am I neglecting it? 

With dearest love,

Daddy

winter in miami


As another polar vortex howls outside my little window in DC, I'm thinking back to sunnier times. Sure, snow days are nice, but here's what winter in Miami looks like. 

A big thanks to my athlete-model friends for "reluctantly" letting me shoot them in action.

san francisco


Back in October I made my biannual trip out west to visit friends from Miami who have moved to San Francisco. SF is one of my favorite cities to visit because it has so much to offer between the food, the sites, the people, and the music.



Outside of park lounging, 
I went to Palo Alto for a tour of Stanford, a look at startup life, a hike, and an amazing stay at my friend Hannah's house/commune; did some obligatory shopping and more people-watching on Haight Street; went to the bars for an hour to justify getting late night food in the Mission; went on a 2-billion-mile walking tour of downtown, Chinatown, North Beach, and the Marina; hiked Corona Heights; and popped into Philz for a mojito iced crack coffee every time we passed one.

hot august blues


In honor of the end of summer and of finally getting around to cleaning out my camera, here are a couple of pictures from Baltimore's Hot August Blues festival, which this year featured one of my top music and all-around-human crushes, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals...in addition to several other awesome bands.

The whole day was a perfect way to mark the end of summer, and after several years of missing out for one reason or another, I couldn't be happier that I got the chance to go. Here's a glimpse at some of my favorite pics, though they definitely don't do justice to how gorgeous the park was, or how much great music actually went on throughout the day. Read the write-up, and see a billion other (way superior) photos here.
