OK Design Critique


We, including Matthias, our general contractor, went to Olson Kundig’s office for the 2nd straight day, this time to participate in their design critique session about our design. Not many firms do this but Jim Olson has been doing it for 50 years.

We got some good feedback and ideas. I think we can incorporate many of their ideas or they may lead us in a new direction. They really get the Optimism concept and had some cool ideas to incorporate it into the design – elevating, upward motion, etc. I appreciate how good designers can see things I can’t see and/or can’t express. It’s fun working with talented people.

Great Divide

It was way too crowded. But I love being there with my wife. And they make great beer.


Hudson’s T-Ball uniform



More great lyrics from The National:

Everybody needs a prayer, and needs a friend
Everybody knows the world’s about to end

Everybody wants to know what the end will be
Everybody wants to look before they leap

Everybody wants a sip of wine to drink
Everybody wants a little more time to think

Everybody needs a reason why they run
Everybody wants to know what they’re running from

Change that “wine” to “beer” and it’s even better.

Happy Birthday, Gay!

Gay and I had steak dinner at Miller’s Guild and then walked to a crowded Radiator Whiskey for an after-dinner drink — my first Solera-aged bourbon.


Birthday brunch

At Tallulah’s for brunch.


7 vs 5 vs 3

The difference between (almost) 7, 5.5 and 3 year-old kids looking at a clock:

Havana: “So each number means 5 minutes?”
Hudson: “What does the little hand mean?”
Eva: “What is the circle?”
