“But let it never be forgotten, that tenderness of spirit is absolutely inseparable from a spiritual frame. When our blessed Lord prayed, it was “with strong crying and tears?i?:” and when Jacob wrestled, “he wept, and made supplication.” This then is the state of mind which we must aspire after. Our fervour must be a humble fervour; and our confidence, a humble confidence. And whilst we look to God to accomplish all things for us, we must at the same time use all proper means for the attainment of them.”

Charles Simeon on Genesis 32:26 (1832-63)

Sunlit Carpet of Green

The Santa Teresa Hills in the Springtime

This view is a daily visit for my dog and I. During the summer, the hills are golden brown. During the springtime they display a carpet of green. I'm continually captivated by the various ways morning sun, peaking over the eastern hills, lights up the green hillside.

Waiting for a Burger

At Five Guys

Sometimes it's not easy waiting for a burger.

Los Gatos Friends of the Library

An Impressive Space For Used Books

Normally used books don't have such a wonderful space. The cement grid ceiling, the brick walls, and the many books create an impressive space. 

Matthew and Jenn browsing the books

You'll typically find me with my head tilted sideways trying to read spines on bookshelves. Jenn manages without looking ridiculous.

And Jenn nearly refuses to pose for me, so any portraits I'm going to get will be from everyday moments. 

The Way We Walk

In Complimentary Ways

You'll see Jenn walking Tessa on leash. But you may have noticed that in many of my photos, Tessa is wandering the scene. We parent our dog differently, but in complimentary ways. Dad's are always more fun.

Sitting with Hacky Sacks

Silliness at Home

Jenn bought the kids hacky sacks for Christmas. Instead of using their feet, they throw with the hands and tickle each other with silly faces. Once they get tickled, it's hard for them to stop laughing. It doesn't take long for us parents to say, "Okay, that's enough!"
