With a little help from my friends...

If I think really hard, I guess I can remember being called a geek a few times for spending entire nights at the computer, fine-tuning little details that will never matter to anybody else but me. But the truth is, the only thing I know for sure is that I know next to nothing. So fine-tuning this blog has been an ongoing project for months, and now thanks to Serendipity's mighty Garvin, a new issue was just resolved and I am a tiny bit wiser. Such a tiny bit. ;-)Any way, I...
The photo galleries are getting an overhaul
July 14, 2005
It was about time! I've finally decided to address the look and feel of the galleries, a task that I had been putting off for too long... As of now, the Dust and Red Rocks, Below the Surface, Growing Wings and Traveling Colors galleries have been completely re-designed and augmented. Then I created a new gallery called Lake Superior with a collection of pictures that appeared here in the blog. As soon as I come back from the West Coast, towards the end of the month, there...
Cats!
July 3, 2005
It must be a cataclysm! I suddenly wake up at the terrifying clash of thunder and the roaring furry of a thousand galloping horses right above my head.But then the blurry haze of sleep thins out and I am forced to retrofit the glamour of my dreams with a grim reality. The thunder was simply caused by an exploding set of Star Wars Lego™and the herd of horses was in fact one of cats. Three of them.I look around confused. It's still pitch black in here. It must be night time. ...
Missing the Sea
I sleep poorly at night, bothered by the mortuary stillness of my bed and unable to repress the memory of gently rocking seas. When my eyes linger on the horizon, there’s always a roof, a tree or a rock chipping away at its immensity. One never grows accustomed to firm ground after being at sea. At best, one tolerates it.  ...
Amazing Geoloc
June 12, 2005
76! That's the number of countries from which this - very - modest web site has received at least a visit, according to Geoloc's statistics (that's for the entire site, not only the blog.) It's amazing, and quite embarrassing. I'm going to have to learn a few more languages. In the meantime, my most humble and enthusiastic salutations to everybody. Thank you for visiting, however brief your stay. I hope you find something in here that will make you smile or travel a little...
Up Before the Sun
June 11, 2005
Saturday morning, 5:00 am. I've been up for 3 hours already. Daylight has begun painting another steamy day and I'm hoping for a blazing red-ish sunrise through the morning haze. I drive around the countryside forever, looking for a silhouette, for a shape that would compel me to stop and set up the tripod. But as time passes by, the light increases and flattens out without giving the sun a chance to shine seriously. I end up snapping a few shots just for revenge, and...
The soaring fool is airborne again
June 6, 2005
It had been almost a year since I'd left the ground under my canopy, like a flea hoping off the back of an elephant. Now, that's way too long. So today I drove an hour east of Montreal to the mighty Mont Yamaska, a small hiccup on the flat expanse of the Eastern Townships, hoping for flyable conditions. It was a partial success. The winds were a little weak, from the southwest, facing the main launch pad. After waiting over an hour for some thermal activity to come our wa...
