back on the bike

With all the snow we had this winter, I found it difficult to work up the motivation to bike. But now that it's getting warmer, and the days a getter longer, I'm trying to build up miles again. (It doesn't hurt that I've got to get ready for the 42-mile 5 Boro Bike Tour.)

I snapped this pic today at the end of a very windy 16 miler.

Last week I took the bus to New York with my mom, brother, and brother's girlfriend to check out a few exhibits at MOMA and of course, pay a visit to Strand. (I managed to escape after only buying 2 books, but I've got a long list of books I want to download on the Kindle now.)

While my brother was inspired by the Tim Burton exhibit, I was geeking out over the design and architecture area. I recently ordered my first rapid prototyped pieces from Shapeways, so I was really drooling over these laser-sintered textiles.

sunshine, bare feet and paper models

So, I know I've been neglecting this blog a little bit while focusing on Crafting an MBA, but I'm trying to get back on track. Not only do I love sharing these little bits of my life with my readers, I also like being able to look back and see how my life has evolved. So, I promise, more regular posting, even if it's mainly pictures.

Today was gorgeous! It certainly feels like spring is around the corner - after my run I took off my shoes to enjoy the sunshine in my bare feet. The nice weather also gave me a chance to work in the studio without freezing. I'm experimenting with some new ideas. Here are the first paper models:
